I don't know where you're located, but any more, with coyotes and bigger cats making a comeback, it's probably a good idea to keep a shotgun handy, maybe even just like the old West, in your saddle!

HumanDrone,coyotes we have plenty of. You can sit on the porch and here their song every night. Black bears are making a comeback. You hear rumors of big cats but no proof.

Raine and Humandrone,if you look closer at the picture there is a double barrel 12 gauge sitting next to me. I have been known to act a bit like Yosemite Sam after too many drinks but that was some time ago. Now it's more like " Grandpa" on " The Real McCoys".


I noticed the "coach gun" as I call it. Does it have side hammers or is it a box lock?

All this talk of horses and the earlier mention of Yosemite Sam reminded me of the following cartoon. While Sam is showing off his riding and handling skills vis--vis a 'ship of the desert', (and an elephant), I've a hunch he applies the same methods to horses.



Gawd, these old cartoons still make me split a side!

Lou,that took me back a few years. Saturday morning cartoon with my brothers. Robert,too funny, and I don't recall which one I had with me on that day as I have one hammered and one box lock. Down south only the short ones we call coach guns.

You ain't just kidding! They are about the best ever made, I just roar with laughter. Do you recall some group of handkerchief-wringing busybodies getting their knickers all twisted up about how violent they were?

But Banjoman, what are your qualifications? winkngrin

HEE HAW! It's most definitely an "aye" from me.
Vice President Olham, Vice President Dej, what say either or both of you?
Members of questionable standing, what say any or all of you?
Is this man barmy enough?

"what I DiD today" - that one made me laugh out loud, MudWasp. Did She Who Must Be Obeyed find the humour in it? (he asked knowing full well what the answer was)

I got just enough accomplished around the old shack that SWMBO didn't bat an eye.

Speaking of shacks....MFair....I didn't see those pics of yours until today.

Hey, do you shoot a black powder percussion cap revolver, or ever done so? I like them once in awhile.

Haha, doesn't bother me. I'm sure most people think, when they learn that I play the banjo, that I'm that kid all grown up.

All well and good, but will you also set up a small fan to blow regular spritzes of castor oil, supplied by a cobbled windshield washer/nozzle assembly, into your face as you fly your WOFF sorties? Hmmmmmmmm?



Oh, forgot to add, I love banjo music.
