1. I am really liking our Sen. Cruz! He is a solid Conservative, and with a sharp wit and a sharp tongue, he is making a distinct impression on Washington, the Establishment, and the White House. His latest quote is a SMACKDOWN! “America is stuck with high unemployment and low GDP growth, so it’s encouraging to see the President coming to Austin to talk about jobs – perhaps he will learn how to create some from the folks who know how,” said Sen. Cruz.
Ouch, that had to sting!
2. Rain, glorious rain! Cool temperatures, and no A/C! We got some much needed rain Thursday.
With Texas on the verge of at last updating and undoing the arcane mess
that is Texas' knife laws, I have been eyeballing the selection of
Auto-knives (aka switchblades). I am kicking around the idea of an
HK/Benchmade, or a Microtech Ultratech (both OTF).
Our church garage sale is this weekend, but the pickings are pretty slim
compared to past years. I think I can still snag some clothes for the
Monkeys though. Clothes always go super cheap at the church sale.
5. I've been reading Mike Ritland's book on the SEAL K9 War Dogs. It's called Trident K9 Warriors.
It is fascinating, and he gives a lot of insight into what goes into
the selection and training of such dogs. It gives me a greater respect
for these animals, and also confirms my decision that Mals are more dog than I am interested in learning to handle...
