Re: Things I Love (2)


My 2 boys, especially my 7 year old have been asking about the pellet gun in my office for awhile. It is an old Crosman 140 single shoot .22 pumper. It was my uncle's. Well it hasn't worked for years now.

Did a little research and found a seal kit on eBay for it and a video showing how to tear it down.

Today we successfully rebuilt it and my boys and I did some target practice for the first time. Pretty fun for a rainy Saturday afternoon. Who doesn't love shooting up some aluminum cans?!

There’s a guy in that strip mall on Algoma by 10 mile who sells groupons for like $64. I bought one but was too busy to go. That was probably 4 or 5 years ago.

In a bar, shooting pool, really?

P.S. Correct me if I'm wrong, but aren't women 20+, young girls to you?

Andy,

My wife told me someone from Michigan pet snake got out, was found on a roof. Owner claims the snake is very friendly. Any chance it was Precious on the roof and you being interviewed?
