I think today we will here from more liars than we've ever experienced.

I have no idea what you're talking about, but I spend about nine hours per day praying.

Troll for trolls, somewhat successfully I might add. A few posts back to back, a smarta$$ comeback or two and they are crawling out of the woodwork like roaches in a hoarder's kitchen. Keeps them from harassing some of the more sensitive posters here.

You're a true hero RoeD! And damned good at what you do.

RoeDapple 6 years, 2 months ago

My, aren't we sensitive today! A bit stressed are we? And I thought you were getting better . . tsk, tsk. . . . . oh, ;-)

Yesterday I spent a few hours at the Dillon 550. With over 10,000 rounds of empty brass around here and about two tons of lead ingots I can keep myself busy preparing for the next phony apocalypse. Cast, size, load and shoot. Stress free fun since 1968.

Hey, spending time with the grandchild works too! One so far with another due in May. Reading to her, playing with the Legos and watching Elmo on YouTube gots to be the best. Evah!

Roe - you will reap the great reward forever by spending time with your granddaughter. I will never regret one minute that I spent with my wee grandson. He is not so wee now, 6'3 -210lb. and visits me every week for a lovely long chat. Priceless for stress relief.

Yeah, JB , weightlifting. No stress there. Well except for the torn rotator cup, the carpal tunnel, hip replacement and (ahem!) chemical imbalances, I guess it was alright. BABBOY could probably tell you more aboutit.

Chemical imbalances? Running and lifting probably keeps me balanced.

When you are benching 300 lbs Roe, make sure you got a spotter.

Only one? But, it does depend on the dosage each pill contains. There's nothing like the good old benzos to relieve stress. It's unfortunate that they are so incredibly addictive that after only two or three months daily use, you absolutely need them or you're shaking with withdrawal symptoms.

I tried yelling at my kids but that didn't work. They are like female Dobermans. They can rip your heart out and eat it in front of you.

Reading books and having projects to work on is what I like to do...and laughing with my kids whenever I can.

Roe, you have a Dillion reloader, wow, I still am using an ole Lyman, single stage, yes pulling the trigger is a great way to unwind, love it, getting a little spendy even when you roll your own, but it's only money. right?

RoeDapple 6 years, 3 months ago

Yeah guys, I bought the Dillon twenty some years ago when the overtime was flowing. Stocked up on powder, primers and once fired brass (.45 and .38). Still have the Lyman single stage for rifle rounds but never got into reloading shotshells. With the price of ammo now I can load a .44 round for the price of two .22long rifle rounds.

huh? You'd think I could hear ya better with 5 grand worth of hearin' aids in my head . . .

Edmonton is being covered in a large white fluffy blanket. Dang, I just cleaned those walks yesterday.. The temp was 5 above but today is 12 below. Yuck. That brings on the stress. Oh well, I think there is a bit of stress reliever Riesling somewhere in the cupboard.
