I fault myself

for not linking to Brigid earlier in my Blog Roll, nor for linking to this post of hers. But I strongly suggest you go over and read it. It offers a very perceptive view of the current political drama, and I think that EVERYONE be they liberal, conservative or middle of the road to read it.

Well I talked about cleaning it on my show last night so here it is.

My Norinco M1911A1 .45 ACP. With the evacuation plus bombing the house to get the saw palmetto and other assorted bug infestation gone, (which isn't working too well BTW) I've been out in the RV next to the house and the kids have been back at their mothers house. So me and my various firearms have been out in the RV with no A/C. Well I live bout good hard stones throw from the Gulf of Mexico, so humidity has been playing havoc on my blued weapons. So last night I wanted to clean them. Here is my .45 after a thourough strip and clean.

The only modifications to this pistol is I polished the feedramp, Pachmayer Gripper grips and white out on the front and rear sights for easier sight acqusistion in low light. It hits a 9 inch pie pan everytime at 50 feet, I'm satisfied.

Been sleeping in the RV for the last few days

and I have a RV guest..

You may recognize my cat Tufts. She prefers to drink out of my cup or glass, rather than use a bowl, and she loves to sleep in weird places and positions. She also loves to sit in front of the fan so I get cat hair blown all over me while I'm sleeping :o)

I'm hoping to get back into the house this evening so I can get some needed things done.

I'll let ya know.

Ok, Home now and recovered

I slept almost all day yesterday, and all of last night. I no longer have the fuzzy feeling in my head, and my sinuses are starting to clear up finally. Tonight I will restart my show, I will send an e-mail to LawDog and set up a new date for the interview. I need to find a way to get internet up at the family property, I just can't afford it.

Hurricane Ike

A mandatory evacuation has been called for all the counties in the Texas Gulf Coastal Bend. Right where I live. So, the kids and I are heading out with my other family members, the RV, Suburban, Mom's S-10, Mom's Taurus, My cousin's Explorer and Windstar, plus 3 trailers, 1 car hauler, landscape, and an enclosed shop trailer. We're packing things up, cleaning out all the perishable foods in the freezers. In other words I'll be out of contact for a bit. So my show will be on hold, and I will more than likely have to reschedule the interview with LawDog. I don't have internet access at the family property, but I do have Yahoo Messenger on my cell phone, so that's how I will be keeping in touch.

Please don't worry too much abut us. It would be appreciated if you would pray everyone in this area.

I've been trying to figure out exactly how to write this post, and what to title it. It's hard at times to admit that things "Aren't Going Well" Especially when you are male. Well between resupplying my kids for school, (clothes, shoes, back packs, notebooks, paper, pencils pens etc) and paying all the other bills I have, (electric, phone, insurance etc) I find myself 6 days into the new month flat broke. Seriously. I just payed all the bills online, (and get a 2% rebate on 2 of them for doing so) and check my bank account. $3.82 OUCH!If it weren't for the fact that I had already filled the tank on the suburban, I wouldn't be able to take the kids to San Antonio this weekend. (Before you ask my mother buys season passes to Sea World in San Antonio for us every year as Christmas Gifts for us) And I take the kids there once a month all year long, as a reward for working hard in school and keeping their chores done. Normally this isn't a problem, however with 7 kids growing like weeds, I couldn't go with the hand me down route for clothes, and the local second-hand store had no clothes suitable for my 2 oldest daughters for school so I had to bite the bullet and buy them new, and as all the major chain stores don't sell the odd sizes my daughters are that hurt me even worse.

I am medically retired/disabled, as such my monthly income is only abut $1,400.00 a month. Up until now, I was managing without having to ask my family for assistance. I could cut my mothers grass to cover my gas for the suburban to drive the kids where they needed to go. A riding mower doesn't kill my back, like trying to use a push mower did the last time I tried it. My ex-wife is supposed to pay me $100.00 a month in child support, but she hasn't had the money and since she's been helping me with the kids, getting them from here to there, and helping out in the house I haven't asked her for it. But I don't know what to do or where to go about this. I don't want to ask for money, as I've always worked and this is embarrassing to me. I don't want to go the pawn shop route, as they will not give me anything near the value for the item I might try to get a loan against, and the only things I've got would be my tools, and I need them or my firearms, and I DO NOT under any circumstances want to have any weapon on mine out of my immediate control for any reason. So I'm in a quandary. What can I do? I am physically unable to do the work I am trained to do. And I am unable to do a large portion of other occupations, due to my spine and nerve damage.

I'm praying. Hopefully I can find some way of reconciling this in the next few days.

Thank you for letting me rant a bit on this. Just typing it out has given me a few ideas, but I won't know how feasible these will be.
