  1. We all figured he was dealing illegally in antiquities. As for the other stuff, I never really cared enough to think about it. I took some colleagues from France, Finland, and Holland into his store one day and they could not believe such a place existed. And that it was OK that he was walking around with those 16" long pistols hanging off his belt.
  2. Every time I was in Dent's presence he was in his usual attire of baggy cut off jeans held up with turquoise concho belt and hubcap belt buckle, a nasty stretched out white-ish wife-beater tee shirt and two pearl-handled-nickel-plated Colt .45 revovlers in a beautifully tooled holster worn low on his hips. He also was wearing at least a dozen different gaudy silver and turquoise rings, bracelets and necklaces. I've been around him a lot over the years, but only ever talked to him one time in his shop, asking him about the very real KKK "Grand Klu-bah" robes and hood he had on display and
  3. Well now we know why Dent's shop in the middle of Kennesaw is called "Wildman's Civil War Surplus & Herb Shop"!
  4. I wasn’t born here but I’ve lived here for most of the last 55 years. I live in Kennesaw, and can’t say I’m sorry to see him go. He owns the buildings on the main corner of downtown and they are an eyesore and counterproductive to the efforts to revitalize the area. The dozen confer ate flags, the white lives matter flags, and all the Trump flags didn’t help it look any better either. There used to be great little meat and three restaurant that occupied one side of his property, but it had a fire about 12 or 15 years ago and other than boarding up the windows he never did another thing about
  5. That's about how my little sister arrived from Korea way back in 1972, on a 747 Seoul to ORD.
  6. Well to do South Georgia parents hoping their kid grows up to be a successful small town lawyer.
  7. I've binging on Free Range Sailing for a while now. They are a pretty likeable couple. Troy is a man after my own heart, endlessly calm and an unafraid to tackle just about anything. I don't know how he is off camera, but we should all strive to be like Troy's on-camera persona. Pascale's cooking stuff is very interesting as well. Their early bits cruising the Kimberleys was really interesting with the wildlife, terrain and all the native art. Their refit stuff is also interesting and enjoyable for me to watch as well. My only problem with watching them is they make me mighty hungry with all t
  8. I heard two historians talking about the Dark Ages on a podcast recently. The host asked the Dark Ages expert guest (whose thesis was the Dark Ages weren't as bad as we make them out to be) what place and time during that era would have been the best to travel back in time and live? The guest smartly replied that while he enjoyed time travel thought experiments as much as anyone, he could not recommend ever time traveling to an era where there were no effective pain relievers, anesthesia, or antibiotics.

  10. My 5,000 lb I/O won't run at 16 knots, 22 is more like the minimum. It's just too heavy to be planing efficiently at that speed. My next boat will be lighter because I like 16 knots a lot better than 22-30.
  11. Every time we visit, I offer to get a roll-off dumpster dropped off and they cringe in horror. But they know a roll-off dumpster is coming sooner or later, sure as taxes and well, you know....
  12. My inlaws have a detached 30x40 garage full of empty boxes from items they purchased years ago. The stuff that was in the boxes is all worn out and no longer works, but they still have the box. And sometimes they still have worn out stuff too... It's maddening.
  13. Everyone I know who has had shingles says get the shot. So we did. And both doses kicked my ass, the second worse worse than the first. But now I don’t have to worry about shingles. I think it was worth it.
  14. Paranoia where it didn't exist before. The random nature of this crime so close to home is difficult to process. The whole neighborhood is feeling a touch of PTSD at the moment. There's very good chance victims had guns in the house, the preponderance of folks around here do.
  15. Thread drift alert... I'm not paranoid either but recent events in my neighborhood have rattled me. Two weeks ago a (likely mentally ill) young man who lives in our subdivision (and former lacrosse team mate of my son) broke down the back door of the house immediately behind his and shot a young couple to death for no reason at all. Their two year old son upstairs was unharmed. We've been thinking dark thoughts ever since. It bothers me that our fears might actually be rational. Since Hasher is in ATL, I'm sure he's familiar with the case.
