IHMSA sending prayers your way.

Husband sleeping on the couch long day. Xena stayed home and was ready to play. Snow perfect for making snowballs. She just runs back and forth trying to retrieve.

Have a good evening

I'm setting up my new better and bigger tablet right now. This morning my smart phone decided it didn't want to charge. I'm thinking the usb port is going south. Amazing on how the timing coincided. The good news is wireless charging seems to work but my dock for my old Nexus can't work though my case. I ordered another Q charger of a different make that I hope can reach through the pelican case.

I'm working on getting the new tablet configured. I'm thinking this is going to take a day or two to iron out the bugs.

Texted my sister, asking her to pick up my 49# bulk rate package at the post office. Told her she could open it and take the contents out to her car in 4 pieces. Bullet stuff.




What is the hole size range you are willing to try? I might have something I can send you. I've snagged a few bits over the years when we changed our processes.
Ideally, I'd like a series of .250" holes, plus some material removed from the bottom.

Carbide bits seem reasonably priced, but there are different types. I was kind of wondering which would be best for this application.






The new Lee Hand primer works great. New fangled tray is kind of a pain.



Loaded some more .32 S&W Long. It's a pain, as I have to trickle the charges.


Ordered another magazine for my Beretta 81. I was going to order two, but funds are limited this week, and shipping is cheap. One will due.

Still no Altor Pistol. I'll call the company tomorrow.

Here are the pictures of the nozzle installed on the gas can. If you notice the gasket clears the vent hole in the can.20200123_172434_1579829100191.jpg20200123_172419_1579829124034.jpg20200123_172251_1579829145915.jpg

Looking through some of my photos from January 5th when my wife and I were at a wetlands area. I caught this bird's eye in the shadows. Found the background colors interesting as well.

Anyone know what bird this is?




Playing with borders. I always liked the white borders on photos that I got developed at the better camera shops back in the film days. What say ye? Border or no?

Off to bed early. Came home from running errands for Wifey and coffee with development GF, to about to freeze. Sat next to County Commissioner and she kept saying she was freezing. I was fine and warm. Bet she had a temp and was spreading germs. Legs ache and so does shoulders. Hope that was from crawling on the floor of the Train Box late yesterday. Old man not use to that.

Maybe need some meds and a shot from Gigi.

Stay warm.

Goodnight Mayor.

Brent, your picture were there, then gone, then back all within a few seconds.
On my computer using the RFC woodland display background, the white border doesn't show well, but may look OK if displayed on a different background. That particular picture on the woodland background with a black border may look good.

Nice pic, don't know what kind of bird.

Brent
could be a female Brown Headed or Shiny Cowbird in shadows
Female Brewer's Blackbird is a possibility.
Female Rusty Blackbird is a good possibility. (my bet)
Shadows make it hard to narrow down.


I tend to go with darker border for my use
