    that’s actually not a half bad bourbon... still prefer pretty much anything from Buffalo Trace though; Blanton‘s if I can find it. Used to buy it by the case, but it got popular a few years back and now have to special order it. Down to my last couple bottles...

    Those little Blanton’s hand grenades get demolished pretty damn fast around here... Cracked open my last bottle of EH Taylor the other night to toast my son’s future father in law (son’s fiance’s dad...LOL). He may actually like bourbon more than me if that’s even possible.

    For another semi-reasonably priced bourbon that is good and that you can actually find, the Jeff’s Ocean cask is hit or miss for me. Had one that was great, then another that was at best”meh”... The latest batch on shelves around here ‘Voyage 23’ is outfriggingstanding though. Get some while the gettin’s good.

    More unopened bottles?! 😝 that Blantons is older than any I have left for sure. They don’t live that long on my bar. Buddy sent me a Jefferson’s a couple weeks ago that I haven’t cracked open yet. I agree they are hit or miss. The rye they just released is supposed to be awesome though

    Will give that a try...I go through a fair bit of rye in Old Fashioned‘s.

    If you want to get bummed out along with me, check out this pic my buddy sent me when I told him I was down to my last two bottles and a finger or two in a third:

    It’s not super hard for me to get a bottle. There are others that are as good or better also. Funny thing is, ER is just older Blantons and usually beats it on a blind test for most people I’ve had try them

    First of many clippings for the pile. More east coast rain hovering today, so might not get much done. Sunk the tractor and brushhog, so no cutting today. View attachment 7605115
    Hook a chain on some of those rain clouds and pull them my way. We'll pay milage, beer, liquor or cash, your choice.
    Edit to add no ammo, sorry.

    Picked up a new knife this week.
    Got really lucky and got it a block from my parents house. So I had good tools and a jack. Not the factory crap.

    Saturday morning my son and I spent over 2 hours waiting for them to replace the tire. So much for making an appointment.

    New gadget in the shop. This particular mower always made me anxious pulling blades to sharpen. Couldn’t get it high enough for efficient and safe work. I’ve made it this far, I’m not gonna die or suffer with 1,100+ lbs on top of me if it came off the jack. MoJack worked as advertised. I have no complaints.

    You can take that deck off in about the same amount of time it took to strap it down.

    I figured you’d have a pallet jack for your 3 point and just lift stuff that way using the big tractor

    I totally agree and would have to remove the mowing deck on my JD to sharpen blades. I bit the bullet a couple of years ago, much safer and easier too!

    How many do you have invoiced and awaiting import approval is the question. Hopefully at least a conex full.

    Hi,

    As "bad" as some of the Customs Inspectors are I am pretty sure not even they would sign off on those being Daniel Defense; so they just be impounded.

    Even the Customs inspector that asked if he could use Para Ordnance magazines in his issued Glock because he found some at good price online would catch that paperwork issue during entry inspections lol.....

    Sincerely,
    Theis

    Buddy killed a turkey the other day here in NC. In all my life, I’ve never hunted them but lately been thinking about trying it.

    that’s what I’ll do later! Managed to score some small rifle primers and H110 powder at Cabela’s... might load up some 300BLK after I finish this second shaker of whiskey sours we just mixed up.

    what could possibly go wrong! :LOL:

    I’ll load them up in a gumball machine and sell ‘em for $0.25 each with a sign “loaded while drinkin’ whiskey and watching F1”
