Life has intruded recently & I’ve not been able to make the monthly open carry fishing events in a while, but I missed Tampa PD harassing one of our members this past weekend. We’ve been doing these since 2010. I used to call the city attorney to let him know we would be there, but he eventually told me there was no need to call since it was a non-event. The police never had an issue and in fact were part of the best fishing event ever. Yes, we had the occasional person freak out, but just...

Borepatch is hanging up the blog. I’m not there… yet. The job & family take up so much of my time that I don’t get around to this thing as much. When I move, I’m probably going to stop paying out the nose for business class Interweb tubing, so having a fixed IP will go out the window and possibly stop the self hosting. I took ads off my blog, not because I had any issue with GunUp, but because I was making $3 a month, which isn’t worth the hassle. So, with $0 coming in any more, not feeling...

And this one hits me I wanted an angry fortune teller, she wanted a manic palm reader. We settled on a happy medium.— Robb Allen ︻╦╤─ (@ItsRobbAllen) June 4, 2015

But this may be the most entertaining things I’ve ever seen on YouTube. As someone who spent his teenage years in the 80’s, I don’t think they could have captured that look & feel any better. It never takes itself serious, making it totally enjoyable.

  La Pistola is off to Moe Colors for her paint job. It’s a 4 to 6 week process and during that time, updates will be practically non-existent. So I wait. And wait. Granted, Moe does amazing work so it’ll be worth the wait and when it’s done, they’re going to have to redefine the word ‘epic’. I just have to wait patiently for it.

People who made the offer on our house yesterday pulled out. Apparently their real estate agent is brand spanking new (i.e. had the deal gone through, this would have been her 1st house) and she forgot to give them certain things like “paperwork” and “actual price of the house”. We were wanting them to rewrite their contract to cover things a bit differently and suddenly they realized things weren’t as easy as they were hoping. Now they’re gone. Oh well. Shit happens. My main concern is the...

Got an offer on our house yesterday & we’re accepting. We got asking + cash to purchase a bunch of stuff (tables, garage gear, etc). Now we have to get the other house contract going, mortgage, start thinking about packing, etc. We’ll be doing a synchronous closing – close on our current house then close on the new house on the same day. Meaning we’ll have to pack & be in the truck the day before closing & hopefully nothing goes wrong & we’re homeless. That part is a bit scary…
