I could have put up with trench life with all of the hardships and discomforts except for one thing - RATS!
DAMN Straight !!!“After losing a leg, an eye and having been shot through the chest, Cher Ami, a WW1 homing pigeon, was sent from behind enemy lines. After reaching her destination she passed on the message that saved 194 men. Medics saved her and fitted her with a carved wooden leg. She died a year later, a hero.”

I was following Sid Gilman (owned Chargers at the time), stopped next to me at an intersection in his red Vette, asked for some directions to a location that I gave him, he went on ahead of me, as we drove he started slooowly drifting to the right, I thought he’d correct but never did, his front right clipped a parked car, a fiberglass explosion, lucky not as fast as the one above he was ok.
When he was a child my father had a dog that was a rat catching fool. Farmers from all over would hire dad and his dog when ever they were going to move a hog pen. Dad told me he could remember the dog with three rats in his mouth at a time, ahake them to kill them then go for more. This would have been in the late 1930's.I could have put up with trench life with all of the hardships and discomforts except for one thing - RATS!
This is supposed to be a motivational thread. So I will attach some targets so some members can practice their rat sniping skills.
