‘Round Here

Today was my monthly trip to the grocery store in the big city.

My first stop was to the salon to get my h/c. The gal was giggling, and called out “Alexa, skip song!”

the music went to the next tune, and I queried “If I called out ‘Alexa, play Deep Purple Machine Head’, would she play it?”

“Oh yes…Alexa, play Deep Purple Machine Head!”

and by golly, it played.

I then said, “now all we need is a bong”

all the girls in the back giggled and one began the song “don’t bogart that joint”

my turn to laugh.


The grocery store is virtually next door to them, and off on the adventure.

What a nightmare. Some clown decided to rearrange the whole damn store, and I wandered around with that “deer in the headlights” look, and finally left; unsatisfied.

I ordered the rest from wally world…free shipping and delivery to the door…day after tomorrow.

And In Conclusion…

In Richmond,

no shootings

no stabbings

no axings

no antifa

no false flags

no made up media stories

no yelling or screaming from protesters

no beatings by bats

no gun waving

no threats

no violence

no instigators

How often in the past has there been a crowd of ten thousand plus, mostly armed, without violence?

These people are patriots.

I strongly urge lawmakers not to push them any further.

Well done, Patriots!

The left will probably go ahead and pass all the resolutions against which you protested, because they can.

Now go home, clean your guns, stock up on ammo, and sharpen your swords…it ain’t over.

Virginia Peaceful…So Far

As tens of thousands of 2A supporters showed up to lobby against the new gun restriction laws, as of this writing, there are no arrests.

Be it known that there is a system in Richmond to scramble cell phone communication.

That means that whatever is happening, may be tainted by those who are in power.

Will update.

One Of Those Days

A minor project involving one of my two oak cutting boards. I installed some rubber feet on it a few months ago to keep it off the counter.

It warped and became a haven for mildew and warping.

So I decided to sand down the bottom side.

OK. No coarse grit sandpaper. I used an entire sheet of fine grit, but the job was too big for fine paper. Add sandpaper to the list.

So I decided to blow off the board to relieve it of the sawdust I had created, but the air compressor just hummed, and would not start.

Great. There are two starting capacitors on the motor. It did  same a couple months ago, and after I removed and reinstalled them, it ran.

Today, I have decided to replace one or both capacitors.

author’s note: two capacitors, yes. One is a starting cap, and the other is a running cap. I just increased my knowledge of electronic components.

It’s a very old Campbell Hausfeld compressor that has worked fine with a couple of items over the years to keep it running.

Add capacitors to the list.

The wife announced she wanted to use the Mantis tiller to tear up a new garden area. The tiller has not been used in over a year, and despite the gas being treated with Stabil, it was old. I dumped the tank, and tried to prime it…nope.

I pulled the plug and used some starting fluid. It ran until it was used up, but will not pull gas from the tank.

OK. New carb or kit. New carb with a kit is $10 from Ebay.

Add to the list.

The wife is a little perturbed with me as nothing works…because? I don’t do shit around here.

The handwriting is on the wall, and will have to get to work on ordering parts, and installing them.

I still need to finish the carb job on my Kawasaki too, or I will catch hell for that too.

Posting may be sporadic over the next few days, while I try to tame the machinery around here.

Bad timing, and it must be done to keep the peace.

Stuff Flyin’ Though The Air In Virginia

From The Conservative Treehouse

A good read…very interesting comments…

Beware Virginia – A Remarkable Confluence of Events…

More from American Thinker


As of Friday night, after a Virginia district court rejected a legal challenge to the governor’s gun ban, the ban appears to be in place, unless a last-ditch appeal to the Virginia Supreme Court can succeed in overturning the ban this weekend.

Some comments

No gun owners should go to the rally. Instead, by word of mouth only, several thousand gun owners should show up two weeks later to protest. Never let your enemy define the place and time of a conflict, or change the context of an event. The context is intended to protest gun control, the Governor has changed that context to one of violence.


BTW this is probably a trap. One and only one way in or out. Terrorist laws instituted after 911 allow for domestic ter rorists to be jailed for life.

Guarantee you some anti fa clown posing as a 2 a activist will start something.

Senator Chase of Virginia says

On Friday State Senator Amanda Chase issued a warning to those attending the Monday rally.
“We are being set up!”

Senator Chase wrote this on her Facebook page.

I want you to be aware of how we are being set up.

Does the Patriot Act ring a bell?

Does the National Defense Authorization Act ring a bell?

If people show up wearing any kind of uniform, patch or other symbol on their clothing signifying they belong to a militia and something goes wrong, you could/will be held as a domestic terrorist.

If anyone steps out of line, all it takes is one person, it may even be a government plant….if that plant does anything to disrupt the rally, you could/will be arrested as a domestic terrorist.

Virginia State Senator Issues Warning Hours before Monday’s 2A Rally: “We Are Being Set Up”


Pray for our sisters and brothers at arms tomorrow.

They are likely putting it all on the line.

It might be prudent to order some extra mags and ammo…if you care about your 2nd Amendment Right…and probably the rest of them.

A pic of Virginia preps to “pen up” protesters.

Armed “staties”

How in hell did the Air Force get involved in this shit?

No big deal, just a Special Operations Surveillance Aircraft circling Richmond
