I am a libertarian by nature, anyway.

I said that to someone and told them that in addition to that I am an outlaw.

Most people can't really differentiate between an outlaw and a criminal. I am an outlaw. I am NOT  criminal.

To be a criminal one has to have a victim.

I get my pickup back today

The Toyota Motor company replaced the frame free and fer nothin'.

I got to sneak a couple peeks during the process and they replaced a LOT more than the frame.

The mechanic says the body etc is in excellent shape so I figure I'm good for another 125,000 miles.

Update later on


UPDATE.

The old ride is back to being 100%.

Toyota put an entire new frame  on the pickup and gave it a new lease on life. I figure that after all was said and done they put maybe $15,000 into a truck that sells for about $4500.

Why, I don't know but because they stand by their products I would buy another one.

Gunny Ermey passed the other day.

I used to shoot with him at Camp Perry and he was one of the most entertaining people to shoot there.

I have one of his challenge coins and treasure it. It hangs on my wall next to a picture of the two of us that was taken at Perry.

The Gunny will be missed by anyone that ever wore a uniform.

Morning

It looks like the deer like to nap in thee wayback as for the past few days I have spotted them. The herd is now running between four and six depending on whatever. They are still in winter coat but that's changing.

I owe some correspondence and hope to get to it soon.

I am wondering which T-shirt to wear today. 

Maybe I'll just wear one at random but keep an offensive one handy in case I need a trip to the convenience store that's next to the local college. That sounds like a plan.

I actually had one of the clerks tell me that she loves to see me come in and stir up things with the college kids. She's a real Trump supporter that's a retired nurse and is working there to keep busy.

I see her point of view. She worked for decades and knows what the college kids are going to find out in a decade or so.

I had a nice chat with and older black woman the other morning.


She was a social worker doing what I was. We were getting our cars fixed an waiting for the work to be done.

She saw my Camp Perry T-shirt and asked me if I was a gun owner. I told her I was and she mentioned her sister and brother in law shoot fairly regularly and she is thinking of getting a firearm for personal protection. I suggested a simple revolver as she didn't seem to be a 'gun person'.

We talked a bit and I laughed and said, "Look at us all," looking at the crowd in the waiting room. "We're all waiting here for our cars to get fixed and we all get along. Now all we need is a government person or some Social Justice Warrior to come in and explain to us how different we are from each other."

She looked stunned for a second, looked down thoughtfully and when she looked up she said, "You're absolutely right."

We have come full circle with the way cops are treated.

In the 60s it was "Off the Pigs!" and cops became the target. Things settled down a bit in the 80s.

Half a century later it's "Kill the cops." It's come full circle.

The other day I posted on another board that anyone that wanted to be a cop in this day and age ought to have their head examined first because something may very well be wrong with them.

It was one thing a few years back when a cop could just be a cop, but not in this day and age.

The inner city mentality strikes again and politicians pander to it for votes. First they gripe about cops beating criminals up and demanding they stay out of the neighborhood.

The cops stay clear, crime goes up and the neighborhood whines there is no law enforcement.

Before I became a policeman in this day and age I would fly to Aubagne, France and join the Foreign Legion. 

Besides being a little safer it is likely a lot less frustrating and confusing

Yesterday I made a a peach cobbler in the Dutch oven

It came out OK but it was a cold oven. 

I have to learn to get the heat up a little higher to speed things up a bit.

Maybe before I try baking a cheesecake I might try and roast a chicken.

We'll see
