Sorry for my absence

         
    I know it has been a awhile since I have done a post and there is a good reason for it. I had plans to do a good Thanksgiving post but as I woke up that morning in preparations to cook, I had a strong pain in my chest when I coughed. I managed to make it through dinner but then things went down hill. Went to work on Friday and I was miserable. As I walked in the door from work, JUGM took my temperature and it was 103.1 so I was down for the count popping Tylenol and ibuprofen like tic-tacs to get my fever under control . As it seems, I was not the only one, NW was also sick. So up until Sunday morning, we were trying to get both our fevers under control but mine still was bad so we headed to the ER. Well it seems that we both had Pneumonia with me being worse than NW's. So after taking a week off to get better, I still have a dry cough but I am doing better. NW is fine as well with pretty much just a runny nose nose.. I do not wish pneumonia on any one as this is my first time ever having it. It sucks.
    During that time, I have thought of some posts to do and will get to them in the coming days. Hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving with family.

Veterans Day!!!

   As we celebrate Veterans Day I salute everyone of you that have put the uniform on, along with me, to support the constitution against all enemies, FOREIGN and DOMESTIC. Some may have done it for a year or so, some like me that did it for a career, it doesn't matter, you all are the one's who stood up, raised your right hand and said that oath of enlistment or commission. Thank you for your service!!!!




    Well my Veterans Day went well. I slept in a bit since I had the day off, JUGM and I went out for a day by ourselves since the kids had school, yeah I know. Well we headed to the IHOP in Pineville NC to have some breakfast as they were honoring veterans with a free 3 stack of pancakes. Well let's just say with the wait time and the numerous tables that still had a previous patron's dirty dishes on them and with no expedience to clean them off, I told the hostess to scratch my name off the wait list and we left. There is a reason why I don't eat there much. So we continued on with our plans and headed over to Cabelas for a few items.  While there I saw that former group member that I posted about before, "the matriarch" there on his lunch break as it was just after 11:30. I pointed him out to JUGM and all we did was laugh and went on about our business. After our business there was done we headed home because I wanted to surprise the kids with picking them up from school as I don't get the chance with my work schedule. Well that was my day, pretty uneventful.
    As I watch T.V. I cant help myself from not laughing at all these spoiled little liberals who are so upset that Trump won. I have seen the Miley Cyrus video several times today and what do you say, I mean really, I don't know what to say right now. Really???? I cant even find it in myself to post that sorry video on my blog. Well, time to go, the Boys and I will be in the blind early in the morning and it should be interesting with a 10 and 11 year old being quiet. Stay safe and carry often!!!!!

It's amazing what can happen in 24 hours when the voters speak. To all the celebreties who said they would leave.....

    The election is over, Donald J Trump won the presidential election and will take office on January 20th, 2017. I must say I am surprised that an everyday citizen of this country and who has never ran for any office can win over the hearts and minds of a pissed-off society that is lashing back at liberal ideology and by-god, he did it. I was worried last night, but texting back and forth to Florida, once Florida fell to him, I had a feeling it was going to be a good night. As I type this post out, I am hearing a story on TV about the polling and all I can do is laugh because the pundit's "F"'d it all up again. President Elect Trump, I wish you much success in your effort to make this country great again. I look forward to seeing your picture hanging on the wall at work.


    So in my post election coverage, I am pleased to know that a majority of the world leaders have embraced the transition of power that will take place in 70 days or so. It's almost like you can feel the relief from the rest of the world that it is not the other candidate and President Obama's days are nothing but a dwindling light fading away and soon too be extinguished. THANK GOD!!!

    As I prowled around the web today I was reminded of the liberal celebrities that said they would leave the country if he was to win as posted on "The Hill.com". Well let me chime in on them:

Bryan Cranston: Breaking bad star, who I still don't know who the hell this guy is nor do I care.

BYE!!!!!

Samuel L. Jackson: Big-Time liberal actor who has done nothing for the Black community and lines his pockets from films and Capital One credit card commercials. I'm sure you will get some points on your Capital One card as you leave for South Africa.

BYE!!!!!

 Lena Dunham: Who?

BYE!!!!

CHER: She said she would go to Jupiter if he won. Better call Space-ex because Obama dissolved all space travel through NASA.

BYE!!!! 
Don't let the Ozone layer hit you where the good lord split you.

Miley Cyrus: I'm laughing right now, I'm sorry, I cant help myself. I guess Trump hurt your Achy-Breaky Heart didn't he?
BYE!!!!!

Barbara Streisand: Can we get a country to take her please? Philippines? North Korea? Indonesia?

Bye!!!!, Please just go

Amy Schumer: This is better than any joke you have ever told. How's that Bud Light commercial working out for you, oh that's right, you were let go.....

BYE!!!!

Whoopi Goldberg: As you said earlier this year that if Trump won you have the money to move. Better call 2 Men and a Truck

BYE!!!!



    I don't how many of you have seen on the news tonight but it seems there are many people who are not happy with the outcome of the election and are protesting in several major cities in the US. Well first off if you would have had a "Civics's" course in your school years you would know that the presidential election is decided based off the Electoral College and not off the popular vote. Thank your liberal school systems for making you look stupid. It's obvious that you are the product of the Nanny-system of liberalism for sucking on a nipple your whole life and now it seems that maybe you will have to get a job and support yourself. Hey, Grow Up and do something with your life.

     I feel this election has shined a very large life on Liberalism and the globalist movement we have seen for many years. I honestly feel that with BREXIT and now this historic election, globalism is on the verge of collapse. Pay close attention to Europe and the EU. I would not be surprised that they will fade away soon like our 44th president.

Finally, things have slowed down for the winter. We had another anniversary and Election Eve, what will tomorrow bring us........

    Things have slowed down drastically here. Football is over for the boys and I am thankful. I wont miss the two separate practices in two different locations and games on the same field with sometimes hours in between. I am so ready for baseball when they are on the same team. As a reward for the boys outstanding academic achievements and football with one winning the county championship in his age group and other finishing as runner up in his, we thought it would be a good time to reward them with an adrenaline laced jaunt to Carowinds. For everyone now has no clue what Carowinds is, it is a amusement park situated on the NC/SC state line, just off I-77. Well I must say that it has changed much over the 30 yrs since the last time I was there as a teenager and the only ride that is still there from my younger years is the Carolina Cyclone which I remember was the newest coaster in the park. Well at 45 years young, my body sure as hell did not feel young after riding all the coaster and having my body go in directions it hasn't for many years. What coaster did we not ride, we rode them all.
     As the kids and I road up Fury 325's hill, all I could do was wonder, WTF!!! am I doing on this thing. I know why, it's for my kid's. So I had ND next to me and NW was on the end. All I could tell ND was just close your eyes and don't get sick. What made things worse, they wanted to ride in the rear car. Every coaster we rode, it was the rear car all the time. The rear car's on roller coaster are usually the fastest so as I look up and see the front cars go over, I said in my mind "Oh shit" and all of a sudden we speed up, over the top we go free falling easily 300+ feet to the bottom and them I hear this come from ND, "I HAVE FINALLY LIVED!!!!!" screaming his head off in enjoyment. Let me tell you, this coaster hauls ass in excess of 100 m.p.h. Well worth it if you are a adrenaline junkie. Here is a clip of the ride as we left the park around 1700.

The Vortex(Stand up Coaster)

Another shot of Fury 325

And another....
       The garden is going with late Summer/Fall crops which of course include collards, broccoli, cabbage, green beans and a second helping of tomatoes. I have half of the garden shut down so this past weekend, the boys wanted me to carve out a RC car track for them. Didn't take to long to construct . Sorry I don't have a picture but hey, the kids love it.

     As we close on the eve of election day in this country, I have no clue who is going to win. Who do I want to win, Trump. As I have said, I didn't vote for him in the Republican primary, but am supporting him through the general election as the Republican candidate. Who else and I going to vote for, sure as hell wont be Hillary Clinton. IMHO, I think anyone who votes for her should put there head behind a Jackass and have them kick you square between the eyes for being that damn stupid and an "India, Delta, 10, Tango". I mean really, look at all the crap she has done, with Benghazi, emails, Foundation conflicts of interest, manipulating her own political party, mishandling classified material (oh don't get me started on this subject), Iran Nuke deal, and her dead weight pedophile husband Bill. Even better, let's say that Congress has a "F"ing spine and actually goes through with impeachment proceedings on her, we are stuck with Tim "The Uni-brow" Kaine. You got to be kidding me.

    This past weekend, JUGM and I celebrated our 22nd wedding anniversary. As we decided to sleep until we got up, well that didn't happen. We were woke up by the boys and they did this for us. All by themselves.


     Well that's all I have for now. Say a prayer, this country needs it....

Same ole weekend routine till the end of the month.

    As we go into October, the temps are cooling off which I am enjoying. After living in Florida for 28 years, serving the majority of my military career there, getting married and having kids, running a commercial landscaping business for 5 years I have had enough of the heat so I am glad it is cooling off. The next thing I have to deal with is the leaves falling off all my trees. Would be awesome if we have a white Christmas this year but I know I am looking too far ahead.

    The kids football is in full swing now, the regular season has started. Both the kids teams are 2-0 with NW playing on the defensive line as a nose guard and ND as a guard. They are both in different age groups but next year they will be on the same team. I keep asking the kids all the time if they like playing so it looks like this will be their fall activity. It sure as hell wont be Soccer. Their seasons will end at the end of the month, barring playoffs.

    I have been watching some of the show on NAT-GEO, "Live Free or Die" I find it ok, but I find it ironic that this couple in the mountains of NC have aspiring dreams of being self sufficient on 1 acre of land and now are having to ask other like minded people for use of their property. I do like the guy who lives in the Okefenokee and how he lives his life out there. Neighbor of mine pick up a new addition to his property which has got me thinking into purchasing a couple. JUGM has a friend in Florida she keeps in touch with who raised two of them and had them butchered and filled there freezers up. I have always bought them in the past but I have the space to do it here now so more to follow.




    Well we are less than 40 days away from choosing our next President which bothers me. I am not too keen on the choices but I will vote for the lesser of two evils and not sit at home an pout like many in this country will. I sit back and think, how much worse will this country get if Hillary Clinton is our next president? Honestly, I think it will get drastically worse. You know she will go after the Second Amendment and that is no secret with her "Common Sense" gun control. So if you are a class III holder or have purchased items that require a "Tax Stamp", well you are in the cross-hairs first, trust me you are. Many years ago I had thought about obtaining Class III items and even created a gun trust in Florida but why? Why do I want to put myself on the Radar? I have shot automatic weapons in the military and they can get away from you if you don't know what you are doing? Suppressed weapons are good, but where will you ever be able to find 5.56 ammo that makes you completely silent? You sure as hell wont find it at Sportsman Guide, Cheaper than Dirt, or other retail outlets. You can find some .300 blackout ammo in the 220 grain variety and greatly reduced your noise signature, but good luck on the 7.63x39, 7.62x51, and of course the 5.56x39 I mentioned earlier. I have thrown thoughts around of playing with 5.56 ammo on the reloading presses to see what I can come up with. I may dolly around with it in the winter. I do have a range here on the property to do it.

     In my last post, it was brought up why Black Lives Matter is not classified as a hate group. That is a DAMN good question. I suppose the Southern Poverty Law Center thinks it is perfectly OK for a group of individuals that focus on race to go out to destroy property, create mayhem, and attack other races of people.  I got one better for you SPLC: CLOWN LIVES MATTER!!!!!

Seem's Wednesday is a good day for me to post, Lack of Situational Awareness, and the Charlotte chaos

    Well the kids wanted to play football this fall and we are one pre-season game away from the start of the regular season. The boys are enjoying this new sport to learn and they seem to like it. We shall see at the end of the season if they have a desire to play again, I think they will. The boys are on separate team separated by their age, but next year they will be on the same team. JUGM and I are having to attend each practice with only days off for all of us is Wednesday and Sunday's. This past Friday, the high school team invited the two rec league teams over to run on the field with them which was cool as they let the kids run out and break the banner.

    This past Saturday after the kids "Jamboree" for football, where they had their team pictures, weigh-in's, and scrimmage game we headed to Rock Hill to the Dicks sporting goods. I wanted to get better pads for the kids as I find the ones provided by the rec-league sub-standard and kind of cheap. JUGM and I have a system to maintain our situational awareness when we are driving and the angles of vision that we scan. So as we pull in to the shopping center she spots the "Matriarch" of the group I was formally in here in SC, standing on the sidewalk in front of the Dick's sporting goods, waiting on his wife to come out of Michael's craft store with a plastic rifle case in his hand looking totally clueless. So as we pass him by in the vehicle less than 8 feet away I could not contain myself and started laughing.
     So we pull into a parking spot and all of us get out. JUGM and I position the kids on our weak side and as he meets up with his wife, we walk right into the store, less than 40 feet from them and go unnoticed. See, now you see why I have formed my own group with military members.... Enough said..... Folks, I am not making this shit up. I didn't take a picture because honestly, I didn't want to embarrass him as he is the "SUPER PREPPER" You know who you are......

    Now onto a serious issue that has happened over the past couple of days. If you have seen what is going on in Charlotte I find it tragic. See, 9 years ago, we never had this happening in this country. I wonder who has caused all this? I think you know and his last name begin with a "O" and that is my opinion. If you want to challenge it, please do. Honestly, I am so sick of this narrative that has been projected by the liberal ideology and the stupidity of the black community who continue to vote for their own enslavement under liberal policies. See but please have your facts straight. Every 4 years, the liberals come out and promise all this shit, well, you know what happens next, Yes, absolutely not a damn thing.
     I remember back to a day I was standing the 2000-2400 watch on Delta pier in Mayport and someone had wrote on the wall or the guard shack in boredom, and I quote " Why is it that when we are overseas we are American's but at home we are White, Black, Hispanic, and Asian". Think about that for a second. Why is that? Who has caused all this is it the media, YES!!!, Politicians, YES!!!!, Race baiters like Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson , Yes!!!!!, Social Media, oh HELL YES!!!!! Blogger is the only social media I am on, and it is only to get my views out and to let people who know me what I am doing, and that is only to the extent that I want you to know based on sensitivity of what I am doing and how time-late I want to publish it. I only let my close friends know exactly what I am doing.
    So everyone, what are your thoughts on this chaos in Charlotte. Please, be honest. I know you all are tired of this crap just like I am whether its in Charlotte or another city. 

P.S. To the Panhandle fuck who thinks 4x4 FJ Cruiser's are too pretty to drive through creeks. The only pretty thing that is driving our FJ is my wife, and by the way, it's two wheel drive so why would she drive it through a creek? Damn, assumptions are a mother-fucker right?

We are doing better.......

    Just wanted to drop a quick post to say we are doing better. We still have our days but we are doing our best to get back into the normal routines. The boys wanted to play football this fall so they have signed up and we are consumed with their separate practices. Baseball was easier on our schedule as they were on the same team, but since they are 13 months apart, football requires them to be in different age groups.

     Fall garden is in. We didn't do much this fall except for a few items and have gotten our first batch Collard greens and filling up 3 gallon size freezer bags.


    We also have fall green beans which have bloomed and starting to make beans. We did real well last year with them and still have a few packs in the freezer too. Broccoli and Cabbage are still to small but they are in. Our fall Tomatoes did not do as well as the spring plants as 5 of the 8 plants have died off, seemed as they were growing inside out, baffling to me. We have blooms on the survivors but not Tomatoes yet.

     Sunday night, temps were close to 70 degrees so we all decided to sit outside with a fire. It's been almost 6 months since we had done that and it did us all good. It's nice to sit outside at night with the tranquility of a fire and just talk with the family. No TV, No Radio, just us. It is so relaxing.


    I was planning on doing an update on the "Fouled XJ" with ordering either bumpers or a roof cargo rack; however I had a bit of a technical problem. ND had spun me up at the beginning of the month  and I sat down to pay some bills online. Each month I add more principle to our mortgage payment, so as I lost track of which line I was at on the page and clicked submit, I ended up making a lot more than my normal payment. Let's just say I made an extra house payment. Yep, I did it and was not happy, but when I sit back and reflect, I guess it is a good thing as I want to pay my new house off early. I wont make the same mistake next month.


I decided to change up the layout of my blog to make it easier to read. If it is better, let me know and I will keep it.
