If Anyone Sees My Muse...

Kick that little minx in the tail and tell her to head on back.

Between the faux outrage over "shirtgate," the depressing news out of Ferguson (and the attendant stupidity from pretty much the entire spectrum of the perpetually offended), and other related news-type stories, I'm all "shocked-out".

Plus it's Thanksgiving, which means a full-court press for Christmas. This time last year, we were working frantically to clean out the house in MA for the move to VA, and wound up moving into the new house on December 23rd. Ergo, we didn't have a Christmas last year. This year, I want to make up for that transgression. Think this:


Okay, that might not be as grand as I've got in mind, come to think about it...

I'll still be here, but the posting, as you've probably noticed, is going to drop off a bit in the coming weeks. I'm hoping that the new year will bring with it a renewed lease and more to talk about, but one thing I'm finding, now that I've gotten out of MA, is that there's a lot less to be angry about. Sure, there's the overall, national-level stuff to be sure, but the day-to-day stuff has gotten a lot better.

I mean, I haven't acquired a rifle that didn't have a bayonet lug since I've moved to VA...

That is all.

"Shocked out" is an excellent way to put it.

Go look up "Tacky Christmas Tour" for your area. The picture you show would not make it into consideration.

Also, consider taking one of the many chaufeurred tours. IMHO vans offer better viewing than limos. Be sure they provide cookies and hot coccoa. (And bring your dark welders glasses - you'll thank me later.)

stay safe.

If your "hoilday lights" are not synced to the music, number in the multiple 6 figures, and have thier own youtube channel then you are not even close.

Rifles with bayonet lugs: welcome to America!

I got a Mossberg shotgun with a bayonet lug! Now I need the M9 Ontario bayonet.

We're going the other direction for Christmas. Last year's tree was too brightly lit and overdone. This year we will skip the tree and just do simple outdoor lights along the deck railing.
