We heard about this kid so we thought we should drop by and see him.
He is a really good baby. Cute too.
Beth is a very nurturing Momma. They are so peaceful together.
It has been a really good trip.
Ma amd I are leaving for a city in the East tomorrow to meet Wyatt tomorrow evening …
Life is good!
This has to be the most clear and logical explanation ever posted on why a law abiding citizen would want to be armed today!!!
“Why I Carry a Gun”
My old grandpa once said to me, “Son, there comes a time in every man’s life when he stops bustin’ knuckles and starts bustin’ caps and usually it’s when he becomes too old to take an ass whoopin’. I don’t carry a gun to kill people. I carry a gun to keep from being killed. I don’t carry a gun to scare people. I carry a gun because sometimes this world can be a scary place. I don’t carry a gun because I’m paranoid. I carry a gun because there are real threats in the world. I don’t carry a gun because I’m evil. I carry a gun because I have lived long enough to see the evil in the world. I don’t carry a gun because I hate the government. I carry a gun because I understand the limitations of government. I don’t carry a gun because I’m angry. I carry a gun so that I don’t have to spend the rest of my life hating myself for failing to be prepared. I don’t carry a gun because I want to shoot someone. I carry a gun because I want to die at a ripe old age in my bed, and not on a sidewalk somewhere tomorrow afternoon. I don’t carry a gun because I’m a cowboy. I carry a gun because, when I die and go to Heaven, I want to be a cowboy. I don’t carry a gun to make me feel like a man. I carry a gun because men know how to take care of themselves and the ones they love. I don’t carry a gun because I feel inadequate. I carry a gun because, unarmed and facing three armed thugs, I am inadequate. I don’t carry a gun because I love it. I carry a gun because I love life and the people who make it meaningful to me. “Police Protection” is an oxymoron. Free citizens must protect themselves. Police do not protect you from crime; they usually just investigate the crime after it happens and then call someone in to clean up the mess. Personally, I carry a gun because I’m too young to die and too old to take an ass whoopin’.”

Remember the average response time to a 911 call is over 4 minutes.
The average response time of a 357 magnum is 1400 FPS.
Hat Tip to my friend Ken who is a police officer.
What a surprise Amy Bishop is and was a festering Barking Moonbat, who was allowed to get away with murder. Naturally she was safe in the world of academia which is a total gaggle of wierdos.
Bishop’s husband, James Anderson, told the Herald his wife had been fighting the university for over a year about a tenure denial, and several months ago received a final decision. She was upset, but not overly emotional, approaching her appeal “like a game of chess,” he said.
A family source said Bishop, a mother of four children – the youngest a third-grade boy – was a far-left political extremist who was “obsessed” with President Obama to the point of being off-putting.
A former auto-body worker claims Amy Bishop put a gun to his chest and demanded a getaway car just minutes after she shot her brother to death 24 years ago in a controversial case that is now being reviewed.
Tom Pettigrew, 45, told the Herald he was working at the Dave Dinger Ford auto repair shop in South Braintree, near the former Bishop home, when he saw the gun-wielding woman run into the dealership with what he thought was a BB gun.
Pettigrew, of Quincy, who was 22 at the time, recalled telling his co-oworkers: “I’m like, ‘Did I just see what I just saw?’ ”
Pettigrew said he heard noise coming from where car keys are stored, so he went to investigate.
“I go over to the door and I can sense that she’s right near the door,” Pettigrew said. “I’m thinking it’s a BB gun. I open the door and she’s right there and we basically bumped into each other and I got a shotgun right in my chest!”
“And she’s like, ‘Hands up!’ and I’m like, ‘Yes ma’am’ ”
Bishop appeared agitated and nervous, Pettigrew said. The University of Alabama professor now accused of killing three colleagues Friday said she needed a car because, “I got into a fight with my husband and he’s going to kill me,” the worker recalled.
Pettigrew then watched as Bishop walked through the dealership looking at cars, all the while grasping the gun.
By then, police arrived and swarmed the parking lot. One armed officer climbed up on a nearby roof, Pettigrew said, and could have taken her out.
Why did she get away with all this stuff? Connections? Family? Other Progressives? Time will tell. However nothing will change in the rarified air of Universities.

Teleprompter Of The United States
AKA ROTUS Rock Star of the United States. Note the obvious .. the teleprompter. Jimmy Obama needs a teleprompter and an armed guard to make a presentation to a classroom full of 6 year olds.
Likewise Smart is … as smart does.
Let the Smart Cars Roll!!!!
Well, all I can say is this guy’s car is truely a reflection of his persona.
And this lady looks like she belongs in a Mercedes. That said, what she is in doesn’t really look like a Mercedes. Models will do anything for money.
This of course is the “Grand Finale”. It is also the reason I would never buy or borrow one of these things.
We wanted to present some of the more …. ahhh … less well known laws that may affect those who live in these states.
It is illegal to catch fish with your bare hands.
Lawrence – it is against the law to carry bees in your hat.
McLough – it is illegal to wash your dentures in a public drinking fountain.
Natoma – it is agianst the law to practice knife throwing at men in striped suits.
Russell – it is against the law to have a musical car horn.
State law has a provision that allows any city in the state to levy a tax to support a band, provided that “the mayor plays piccolo and each band member can eat peas with a knife.”
It is illegal to carry an uncaged bear down the highway.
St. Louis – it is against the law to drink beer from a bucket on any street curb.
According to state law, it its illegal to use elephants to plow cotton fields.

Asheville – it is illegal to sneeze within the city limits.
Wade Mills – it is against the law to purchase or eat ice cream 30 minutes before church on Sunday.
Wintson-Salem – it is against the law for children under the age of seven to go to college.
If we missed your state (Wisconsin doesn’t seem to have wacky laws) you can look them up here.
Our reporter in Wisconsin has discovered wacky laws:
State Law made it illegal to serve apple pie in public restaurants without cheese
Nuclear weapons may not be manufactured in the city limits. (Sun Prairie)
If one is thought of as offensive looking, it is illegal for him to be in public during the day. (Milwaukee )
You cannot “worry a squirrel.” (La Crosse)
Tattooing is illegal unless it is done for medical purposes. (Brookfield)
While all cheese making requires a license, Limburger cheese making requires a master
cheese maker’s license.
