    thanksgiving, waking up at 6:30 with my brother to start the smoker for the turkey. it was cold so we also made a fire in the fire pit. we set up a tv on the back patio, and then we sat on the lawn chairs smoking cigars and drinking beer. that was manly relaxation.

    Anyone who can't get drunk by midnight ain't really trying.

    Wow, I remember that day. I thought the sudden tremor felt throughout the earth was due to Engelados' rumbling [​IMG] Btw, what is all this about the Maxim gun? Inquiring minds et.c. [​IMG]
    [​IMG] Oh Maxim? Well, Hiram was born in Maine, though he later emigrated to England. Some time before he left he managed to come up with the Maxim gun -- oh, around 1845, I believe. So one of the larger Class III/machinegun shoots was named after Maxim and held in Dover-Foxcroft, Maine for a few years. It was closed down the year I planned to go, though I can't remember why. By all accounts it was a pretty neat show, likely the second-largest on this side of the Miss, after the event in Knob Creek, Ky. Speaking of Knob Creek (which was this past weekend), for manliness hows about firing the largest, legal, civilian-owned howitzer in the U.S. has got to rate -- the 90mm T3 anti-tank gun. Link: http://www.subguns.com/boards/mgmsg.cgi?read=534789 I'm not entirely sure how much I'd want to name a rather peaceful shoot after Maxim though. Alot of kids died marching on Maxim guns like they were marching on a regiment with muskets in the Great War. Not his fault, but all the same. ~ Huntsman

    I can tell you that you make ME laugh frequently. BTW....I completely agree with your post on fatherhood. I have two girls (12 & 2) and a boy (5) that consume virtually every waking minute of my time. If I go to my grave being considered a good father....I will be well pleased.

    I know Hiram well....I've got a crazy Uncle who lives there. I always refer to it as the "Stephen King" town. I've driven through there dozens of times and have NEVER seen anyone on the street. It's a spooky place that Hiram,Maine.


    Excellent. I'm always glad when people laugh on my account. Sometimes it's with me, sometimes it's ....well not so much. Still good though.

    Bet you're a pretty cool father. I have had neither wife nor kids, but it's an honorable profession.

    Spooky for Maine, from a native? Maine definitely has it's own identity, though I confess to not having been to Hiram -- the shoot (that I never got to, either) was in Dover-Foxcroft, which is nearby, if memory serves. I spent some time in Paris, and hunted outside of Rangeley. Great experiences all.

    But a real manly story now. From the youngest forum member.

    About a year ago, I was riding my dirtbike, when I dropped it in a creek. Flooded the engine and couldn't start it. For anyon that rides motorcycles, you know that there is a kickstart on smaller bikes. Anyways, I was kicking the bike through and, oh, lets say the fourth kick I'm pretty frustrated and my pants got caught on the kick start and the foot peg got gouged into my shin. Pretty deep, too. Me being the genious that I am, I decide to keeep on riding, whilst my shin is bleeding rather profusely. About an hour later, I go inside clean the thing out with some peroxide and show it to my dad. He says it's pretty deep but you shouldn't need any stitches and I go about on my way. The thing bleeds everytime I move. The next day I went to a friends house and his mom, who is a nurse, looks at it and says I should have gotten atleast 3 stitches, but it was too late now. She shaves my leg and makes a butterfly bandage(I think?) and it eventually stopped bleeding. I still have one hell of a scar though.

    Waking up at 7:30 in evening with a hangover because you drank beer all day in the sun and then took a nap.

    And then grilling out brats and burgers in your driveway on a nice warm spring night and feeling 1000x better.

    Sorry for this digression, but when my oldest daughter was about three or four years old, she wandered into the bathroom while I was urinating. She stood quietly behind me, apparently with some measure of wonder at the procedure.

    When I was finished, and turned around to wash my hands, she nodded to me and said, "That would be really handy."

    When I asked what she meant, she said it would be very handy to be able to "pee standing up. You know, like when we're camping."

    We still laugh about this.

    (And now, back to your regularly-scheduled posting.)

    today was first day of passover - got up at 8 am to smoke a 20 pound turkey and 2 7 pound briskets (you beat me to the post, faustian bargain). me, sitting in the sun, in a pair of shorts, smoking a montecristo number 2 (the last one left over from the box I got for my son't birth), drinking a few belgian white beers and a shot of good tequila at 9 am. that is as good as life gets when you are fat and unemployed.

    Exactly.

    Still, there is a measure of satisfaction to chin-checking a guy after enduring his hassling you all night. Double the satisfaction when he gets that stunned look in his eyes and goes straight down. Not advocating it, but still...

    I'll admit to having taken pleasure in this myself. Though not in a long time. I was always worried that it's going to go too far. (And lucky I never met with a genuine bad-ass who was unstable). Assuming that the guy gets up, I've been less worried about what he's going to do, then what I'm going to do (and whether I'll go too far). Also chance has a horrible way of playing itself out. A friend of mine decked someone outside a bar. The guy who was struck fell over, hit his head on the curb, and died. Unless it's self-defense, I can't imagine anything is worth that.

    Eating smoked sausages on the grill, reading the package and seeing the first three ingredients as: Beef, Pork Hearts, Pork - and finishing the sandwich anyway.
