Girls Day Out - Part Two. Powersporks and Zombie Squirrels.

It was girl's day out Part Two.

Miss D. and I drove the BAT(Big Ass Truck)mobile into the city and grabbed Tam and we hit the road before Miss D. and her airplane leave in the morning.

Lunch at the Belgium Brew Pub - Brugge Brasserie.

Would you like large fries with that? We barely made a dent in them and the twelve dipping sauces before the cheese and fruits and little nuggest of meat goodness, crepes and salads arrived. (Is that goose liver pate??)

It's a restaurant AND a brewpub.

Then it was a dash to Penzey's Spices where I bought some surprise spices for Shannon and Oleg and Tam got some goodies for Bobbie and Roseholme Cottage. Look Cake Spice! (but no Win Spice). Then we were off to Mountain of (likely liverless) Geese for ammo. They had no Hoppes No. 9 car air freshners left but we left with an armful of shooty goodness. The final stop was Kahn's, a specialty liquor store that has more Irish spirits than anyplace I've seen as well as an assortment of tasty and unique brews. "Look, a yellow airplane!"

Conversation was the usual, guns, dogs, zombies, hippies, concealed carry, literature, science and after Tam got to feed Purina Giraffe Chow to the tall ones at the IND zoo a while back, a discussion as to whether there a Purina Chow for Everything.

Miss D. "Purina Zombie Chow - brains!"

Me: "Purina Snail and Slug Chow - Sodium Free!"

And a short check to see what the neighborhood gargoyle was wearing before waving goodbye and driving home.

I go back on 24 hour call in the morning for the next couple of weeks. Miss D. is getting a little nap in now preparing to leave very early in the morning for home and husband while new and old friends get back to a more normal routine.

For the rest of you. . . tomorrow a real gear review.

It's either going to be a "The Power Spork" review. Spaghetti night at Mr. B. and Midwest Chick's house.


Zombie Squirrel Weaponry, a review of the Savage HMR 17.

You never know WHAT you're going to find at Home on the Range.

Cheers - Brigid and Barkley


  1. Just love those "and a good time was had by all" stories. Yay!

  2. Definitely interested in your review of the Savage....

    Not sure I would have gotten past the beer.... :)

  3. The "Old Engine Oil" black ale looks interesting!

    Were those ray ban aviators on the gargoyle?

    The "powerspork" looks like a mess or a terrible accident waiting to happen.

    Wish Miss D. clear skies and tailwinds for the remainder of her journey.

  4. Brigid,

    I have that Savage!! Well, not THAT Savage. But, very similar! I hope you don't tell me that was a dumb decision again! :)


  5. Zombie chow. Test it and market it in preparation. Is it legal to hunt zombies over bait?

  6. Great! Now I'm thinking of beer and fries!
    Cheers back to you and Barkley!

  7. No, srsly, y'all were lifesavers today!

    I'm convinced that a proper Valhalla will have l'enorme frites, a good spice store, discount ammo, and Jameson's on sale. :)

    (...and a good time was had by all, Rev. Paul! :) )

  8. Sweetness.

    Glad you're having a good time.

    Dang, I wish I was there.

  9. Love the new look, and is that a variable speed powerspork?

    Dann in Ohio

  10. I'm a little late, but thank you, Brigid :)

  11. Power Spork.....hmmmmm.....that should make for an interesting review.


  12. Now if you can just make maeat loaf from guns id be in heaven. Richard from Amish Stories.

  13. I just can't seem to read enough about You and your buddies! AND, NO...I'm not a stalker, just a FAN!
    Great Gals with Guns that can cook and some of you even have planes...AMAZING.

  14. I think Zombie Chow needs to be put on a shirt, lol. Imagine the looks. Glad good times were had before getting back to the grind. Fair flying Miss D.!

  15. Now that's "Girl's Lunch Date" with style. None of that watercress sandwich, salad w/dressing on the side, and cold green tea stuff.

    I look forward to the .17 HMR review where I hope to learn what the .17 can do that a .22 WMR can't. (Beside forcing you to buy another cleaning rod and the world's tiniest patches.)

  16. Very nice review :-) Glad y'all got some time to do the girl thing :-)

  17. Ed - oh yes, I did a review about cleaning it once. Most of the patches were about the size of Barbie panties.
