Nothing worse than having a cold nose affixed to one's hindquarters in the middle of Winter, when you thought all was under the protection of the blanket.Even from a dog!:-PgfaPS - keep safe!
Very good, Barkley! That's a very good tip.
Oh... Oh... THAT would bring you straight up out of a dead sleep... :-)
Barkley's eyes look like my Scooby's. They have that look in them like Obi Wan just told him his father was betrayed and murdered by Darth Vader.Or he's dying for a biscuit. Either one.MattSt Paul@1077idaho
Small Fry was having a great deal of fun the other day, trying to catch me so she could stick her chilly hands up my shirt and put them on my back.The fact that I shrieked...well...like a girl might have had something to do with that.Might.
LoL Nothing like a cold wet dog nose applied to exposed skin, especially when you aren't expecting it. Normally I hear them coming, nails on hardwood floor, but when they want to get me, they sneak up on me in my office making nary a sound to apply said cold nose to the back of my elbow or other exposed skin. I don't know how they manage to sneak...no tippy toes to get up on...
Cold nose, warm body parts = human yelping and canine "laughter"... but I wouldn't trade it for anything. :)
PS Love your new header!
I have a question.Through an odd series of circumstances I now possess a firearm whose operation is foreign to me. It is a 12 gauge shotgun with over/under barrels. There's one trigger and one hammer. The manufacturer is someone I've never heard of based in Brazil (I forgot to look this morning before I left the house). There do not appear to be any other control mechanisms on the firearm except for a unlabelled slide switch behind the hammer.The question I have is, how does one regulate which round fires when you squeeze the trigger? Is there some kind of standard protocol for this? Is it that switch (or is that a safety - but there's no red dot when I slide it one way or another)? The recommendation I received was "Load it, fire it and see what happens," which I took as exceedingly poor advice.My expertise in firearms is VERY basic....
armedlaughing - he likes to pre chill the nose, whenever possible. If he could use the step ladder I'd not put it against him to stick it in the freezer for a minute first.Matt - that describes it perfectly. BOTH scenarios.Auntie J - I got busy with bro today and didn't get an email off to you last night. One coming here in a few minutes. Hope your surgery goes well.Andie - Yay! Another person who likes it. I was just bored, and my photo editing/graphic skills are about non existent so I was happy with it.RonF - I'm not sure. I will ask EJ. He is a connoisseur of the old historical stuff (and old NFO, don't you DARE go there. . :-)My knowledge base is rudimentary on the old pieces. I'll ask him and I'll let you know in a comment, or if you wish, drop me your email in a "DO NOT POST" and one of us will drop you the info off blog.
Sincere prayers for your brother and yourself.Stay strong.
RonF - see if this is what you are looking for (from EJ)http://www.americanrifleman.org/ArticlePage.aspx?id=1851&cid=13
Thanks, Brigid (and EJ). Similar, but not identical. I'll have to remember to take a 2nd look at this thing and get more specific info.
