      Secure county schools will probably be closed the rest of the week.....pathetic. Go somewhere like Wyoming, it’ll have snowed a foot overnight, and the buses are out picking kids up....

      As someone who hauled bread at one time, make sure you buy four loaves of bread when you normally use one a week.

      We've got a big shutdown in February for 3 months. Unfortunately I'll be working a ton of OT and even more unfortunate that I'm salary so no paid OT.

      St. Peter don’t you call me cause I can’t go- I owe my soul to the company store......

  15. The classic qualifiers and the location poll should be finalized and active tonight or tomorrow. I've been trying to work through it all between working nights & sleeping.

      Thanks man!!  Cant wait to find out where it is.  

  16. Happy veterans day to all our vets. Thank you for your service, your sacrifices and your bravery.

  17. Things I've learned from our left-hand brothers & sisters in the wake of the Vegas shooting:

    1) Guns are magical creatures capable of acting on their own to inflict harm on people.

    2) 40+ guns are considered an arsenal. This includes handguns, long guns, shotguns and the dreaded "assault rifle" which, of all the gun types, is the most likely to act on its own accord.

    3) The statistics that show the cities in our country with the strictest gun laws also have the highest gun violence rates, are made up by the NRA.

    4) The tragedy in Vegas somehow is related to pending legislation on suppressors(NOT silencers....there is a difference, educate yourself before you speak as an "expert"). Although I've yet to see the connection.

    5) Somehow, knowing everything about a shooter's past and guessing why they might have committed these horrible acts of cowardice is acceptable news feed. No longer do we just need to know the facts, every Tom, Dick & Jane's opinion on why is necessary as well.

      We have lost the art of fence mending. Years ago, you would walk your fence line. You met your neighbor walking his. Exchanged greeting, maybe offered some help one way or the other. Went on your way and minded your own business. We are no longer capable of this.

      Is it the pen that misspells words? Is it the fork and spoon that makes you fat?- Yet somehow it’s the gun that kills people. Funny that left wingers call for gun control, yet praise Obama on a nuclear arms deal with Iran, which will lead to them having warheads.......

      Just looked at the long-range wx outlook.  Looks like a cold front will shove its way down this way early next week.  Lows in the mid-50s, highs in the mid-70s.  Dew points are projected to be in the 50s.  Be still my beating heart but is fall coming a lil early this year?

  19. TNBF tourney on Boone for 7/22 has been cancelled. Please see the tourney forum for more info. I apologize for any inconveniences this may cause.

      Amen brother. Best birthday in a long time. Great to see some patriotism in our land again. 

  22. You can't keep the ground from shaking. No matter how hard you try

    You can't keep the sunsets from fading. You gotta treat your life like jumping off a rope swing, baby, cause the whole thing is really just a shot in the dark.....

  23. May 27 tourney on Ft Pat has been rescheduled to Oct 7 on Watauga. See tourney forum for more details.

  24. Fake news media is a real thing......fantasy vs fact can be muddled & spewed as news anywhere. Geez.
