Frito Bandito en la casa!
It took, what, a month and a few false starts on e-Bay, but bloggy buddy and RW friend Drlobojo secured Dr. ER and I our very own Frito Bandito pencil eraser (circa 1969-72)!
I think the Frito Banito may have been quail hunting down along the border Saturday.
Any other of you rednecks out there ever shoot anybody while quail hunting?
Have any of you ever seen a quail wearing an orange vest?
What is a 28 gauge shotgun (is that a 410?)?
---Confused in Oklahoma
or "Segways Are Us"?
Anon, did you say, "..politics as usual" = VP shooting some one?
A 28 guage is larger than a .410 (it is nearly, or just over .5 inches in diameter). It is not a widely used guage (obviously). Purists (usually people with money or family heirlooms) prefer a 28 guage when hunting Mr. Bob White, feeling it to be a more sporting caliber.
As to shooting anybody while quail hunting - I've never done it. My Dad did, though, when he was in high school. It messed him up (the other kid, too). Because of that, he never hunted again - anything, not just birds. He taught me firearm safty and how to shoot, but he left it to the rest of my kin to give me instruction in the art of hunting.
Been gone a spell. I'm glad you made up with the guy who made you mad.
And that picture with the martini is making me drool. Damn. When will I learn not to read your blog while I am at work?!?
Not somethin you pick up at Sears and Sawbucks I imagine, custom made, or is there a nich marketer?
Also, reporters DO ask stupid questions sometimes. But here's one that needs to be asked: WAS THE VEEP DRINKING AT THE TIME?
I don't know whether he even drinks or not.
I have olives stuffed with almonds and they are wonderful. Are you a gin martini person or a vodka martini person? Myself, I am a gin martini person. Bombay Sapphire, to be exact.
Me, too. I've also had steel shot rain down all around me whilst water-fowling.
Gin martini, made with Cascade Mountain gin if at all possible (see www.bendistillery.com/). Tanqueray if not. With a twist.
ER, try the garlic stuffed olives.
Rem, went hunting once with a HS friend who had his inherited Police Chief Grandfather's 10 gauge double barrel. He thought that it might bring down the quail easier. He only fired it twice on that hunt. You couldn't even find the feathers, and his shoulder hurt for a week. I LMAO. :)
BUT, I've recently discovered Hendricks, a Scottish gin with a whiff of cucumber. No kidding. Excellent, crisp martini.
Duncan has gone on to be a well known writter, and I have run into him on the Lewis and Clark Centennial circuit over the last few years. Drinking BJ's stuff led me to the Platt Valley whiskey.
It is an old occupational problem of mine to always know with whom I'm dealing. You have now give me enough clues that I actually know who you are. Check with ER to see if I am correct.
