  1. I have had both, and a boat, stops negative cash flow when retired to sit out in the weeds, not so for a horse.
  2. After having several horses and done some breaking, I would say to Ms Peachy, really think it over before owning a horse. I would rather have a couple of 4 wheelers and a side by side 4x4 Polaris Ranger or J.D. Gator. They don't eat drink and poop 24/7/52/365 and require a pasture,shoeing, horse trailers, saddles tack, Etc.,Etc............... just some oil gas and battery charging, then when they get ragged and worn out, just trade them in. If you need something to keep the grass and weeds down either get some goats or buy a DR field mower!
  3. Some More of those thingies. . . . . You can always count on Americans to do the right thing—after they've tried everything else." A bus station is where a bus stops. A train station is where a train stops. My desk is a work station. How is it one careless match can start a forest fire, but it takes a whole box to start a campfire? Dolphins are so smart that within a few weeks of captivity, they can train people to stand on the very edge of the pool 
and throw them fish. I thought I wanted a career; turns out I just wanted paychecks. A bank is a place that will lend you money if you can prove that you don’t need it. Whenever I fill out an application, in the part that says “In an emergency, notify,” I put “A DOCTOR.” Why does someone believe you when you say there are four billion stars, but check when you say the paint is wet? Behind every successful man is his woman. Behind the fall of a successful man is usually another woman. A clear conscience is usually the sign of a bad memory.
  4. Paraprosdokians are figures of speech which the latter part of a sentence or phrase is surprising or unexpected & is frequently humorous. 1. Where there's a will I want to be in it. 2. The last thing I want to do is hurt you . . . . but it is still on my list. 3. Since light travels faster than sound, some people appear bright until you hear them speak. 4. If I agreed with you, we both would be wrong. 5. We never grow up . . . . .we only learn how to act in public. 6. War does not determine who is right, only who is left. 7. Knowledge is knowing a tomato is a fruit. Wisdom is not putting tomato into a fruit salad. 8. To steal ideas from one person is plagiarism. To steal from many is research. 9. You don't need a parachute to skydive. You only need a parachute to skydive twice. More to come later. . . . I figured you would say that.....DUUUHHHH!
  5. Yes, a sharp edge ejector face may be the problem, how about a rough chamber? Did you follow the recommended break in for that rifle? Maybe just using reloads that aren't properly resized? Maybe if you have 500 rounds without FTE or FTF you are just thinking you have a problem?
  6. Back in the day (even before my younger days)Texas Rangers, not the baseball bunch, trained their horses to not spook when the Rangers shot their Winchester repeating rifles from the saddle in a dead run. Their horses were often semi-broken and often did a bucking spell when first mounted early in the morning.
  7. 98, I think you must have peed on an electric fence or two.
  8. here is some more stuff from my cousin that is 94 and lives in an assisted living place, which is almost like living in a nursing home but costs more. This is what she comes up with: God's Plan for Aging: Most seniors never get enough exercise. In His wisdom God decreed that seniors become forgetful so they would have to search for their glasses, keys, and other things, thus doing more walking. And God looked down and saw that it was good. Then God saw there was another need. In His wisdom He made seniors lose coordination so they would drop things, requiring them to bend, reach, and stretch. And God looked down and saw that it was good. Then God considered the function of bladders and decided seniors would have additional calls of nature, requiring more trips to the bathroom, thus providing more exercise. God looked down and saw that it was good. So if you find as you age, you are getting up and down more, remember it’s God’s will. It is all in your best interest even though you mutter under your breath. Nine Important Facts to Remember as We Grow Older #9 Death is the number 1 killer in the world. #8 Life is sexually transmitted.. #7 Good health is merely the slowest possible rate at which one can die. #6 Men have 2 motivations: hunger and hanky panky, and they can't tell them apart. If you see a gleam in his eyes, make him a sandwich. #5 Give a person a fish and you feed them for a day. Teach a person to use the Internet and they won't bother you for weeks, months, maybe years. #4 Health nuts are going to feel stupid someday, lying in the hospital, dying of nothing. #3 All of us could take a lesson from the weather. It pays no attention to criticism. #2 In the 60's, people took LSD to make the world weird. Now the world is weird, and people take Prozac to make it normal. #1 Life is like a jar of jalapeno peppers. What you do today may be a burning issue tomorrow. Please share this wisdom with others while I go to the bathroom Don't look down your nose, about this being silly, Lord willing you will be old too, someday. . . . ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
  9. This ain't all of it, but some I picked out for you folks. Don’t name a cow you plan to eat. Be thankful we’re not getting all the government we’re paying for. Never miss a good chance to shut up. Life is not about how fast you run, or how high you climb, but how well you bounce. Keep skunks, lawyers, and bankers at a distance. Life is simpler when you plow around the stump. Don’t sell your mule to buy a plow. Don’t corner something meaner than you. When you wallow with pigs, expect to get dirty. Don’t squat with your spurs on. Timing has a lot to do with the outcome of a rain dance. When in doubt, let your horse figure it out. A good fence should be pig tight, horse high, and bull strong. Good judgment comes from experience, specially them that had to pee on the electric fence. If you’re ridin’ ahead of the herd, take a look back every now and then, to make sure it’s still there with ya. Only a fool argues with skunk, a mule, or a cook. Any hoss’s tail kin ketch cuckleburrs. Always drink upstream from the herd. There’s two theories to arguin’ with a woman. Neither one works. A pair of six-shooters beats a pair of aces. An angry bull is less dangerous than an angry woman. An old timer is a man who’s had a lot of interesting experiences — some of them true. Speak your mind, but ride a fast horse. Never approach a bull from the front, a horse from the rear or a fool from any direction. A cow outfit’s never better than its hosses.

    Mighty fine looking ribs there Bro.
  11. Buds has some pretty good buys on Legend Ammo and other stuff for their Labor day sale.
  12. What? . . .NO Electric Starter?
  13. Some people can come out of a rose garden with a stinking mess, which I see as ten gallons of cat shitt in a five gallon bucket, and expect to smell like Old Spice. IMHO
