    dishwashing your pipes

    When I use to restore old WWI and WWII rifles I used this method for pulling out dents in old rifle stocks. As long as there wasn't any cuts in the wood I would have some pretty good results.

    When it Rains it Pours

    I've been off line for awhile. Had to rush home from Indiana to pack up the house. I asked my wife to check with local realtors to see what the market is for homes in our complex. Next thing I know the realtor calls me up that our house sold in a day. I couldn't get home right away due to...

    On the move

    Haven't been around much this past week because I'm in a rush to move. The past two years I've been back and forth between Arizona and Indiana (mostly been in Indiana) helping my Son out with my Granddaughter who has just turned three. She has had some health and physical issues (which...

    Where did you start...and where did it lead?

    When I started smoking a pipe thirty plus years ago it was from a local pipe shop and I believe his renamed version of Lane 1Q that he called Gold Duck. Wasn't long after I started on English blends which if memory serves me correctly was Frog Morton. I still smoke my first pipe I bought from...

    Resolutions for 2021

    When I worked for the Airlines in Phoenix Senior Management also pushed for all of Mid-Management to donate to United Way. I refused for the very reasons you did. The other joke was their requirement that you participated in Maricopa County's annual car pool computer poll. Apparently they got...

    What Are You Smoking Pages.

    Yes I was shocked too. Farmersburg Indiana is a little farming town about eighteen miles outside Terre Haute. Mickey's is a small bar/grill with three pool tables and seats maybe sixty people when full. Great food (especially their burgers, quesadilla's and pretty good taco's on Tuesdays), $3...

    American Made Boots

    My problem is I can't find Western boots in my size that are affordable. I wear a size 10 1/2 6E.

    How Often Do You Change Your Car's Oil

    I have a 2005 Chevy 3/4 ton 2500HD Crew Cab which is a diesel. I change the oil every 10000 miles. The fuel filter and spin on transmission filter every 20000 miles. Currently have 175000 miles on the truck. I haul a thirty foot Heartland 305 Fuel toy hauler with it all over the country with no...

    Don't Laminate!

    I must be one of the fortunate few. I laminated my card in the early 70's and have had no isuues. I did have issues once with an FAA Inspector who tried to tell me my original A&P license was a phony because it was paper and he didn't recognize the Administrator signature. I received my original...

    Disappointed in a Peterson

    I have a couple of Peterson's with flaws, fortunately with no hot spots and good smokers. I own several Vauens and Jirsa's (a couple of which are considered their high grades) and think for the money they can't be beat. One of the Jirsa's I initially had issues with but blame the local shop...

    What movie are you watching?

    Watching to me is a Western classic. Quigley Down Under (or The Rifle co-starring Tom Selleck). The movie got me into old western rifles and pistols. The 1885 Shiloh Sharps in the movie is a 45-110. I have three 1885's, a Winchester, a Browning and a Pedoriselli. All with octagon barrels but...

    What Are You Smoking Pages.

    Thanks to FTRPLT I'm enjoying a bowl of 2008 Pembroke (one of my personal favorites) in my 2010 Peterson's Saint Patrick's Day B2 smooth straight Bulldog. Along with the Pembroke he sent me some Hastings and Saint Ives. Your a Scholar and Gentlemen Sir.
