Stimulus Here's how it really works

It is a slow day in the small Montana town of Two Dot and streets are deserted.  Times are tough, everybody is in debt and living on credit.

A tourist visiting the area drives through town, stops at the motel, and lays a $100 bill on the desk saying he wants to inspect the rooms
upstairs to pick one for the night.
As soon as he walks upstairs, the motel owner grabs the bill and runs next door to pay his debt to the butcher.

The butcher takes the $100 and runs down the street to retire his debt to the pig farmer.
The pig farmer takes the $100 and heads off to pay his bill to his supplier, the Co-op.
The guy at the Co-op takes the $100 and runs to pay his debt to the local prostitute,
who has also been facing hard times and has had to offer her "services" on credit.
The hooker rushes to the hotel and pays off her room bill with the hotel owner.
The hotel proprietor then places the $100 back on the counter so the traveler will not suspect anything.
At that moment the traveler comes down the stairs, states that the rooms are not satisfactory, picks up the $100 bill and leaves.
No one produced anything.
No one earned anything...
However, the whole town is now out of debt and looks to the future with a lot more optimism.
And that, ladies and gentlemen, is how a "stimulus package"  works.

October is here

    It has been more like April early May here, WET.  The past 2 days have been cooler, but the weather liars are forecasting warmer air this week. I am sure I will have to mow again this week if the rains stop. I see the leaves are beginning to change also.  It has been good weather to sit inside and reload. After my last range day I had a pretty good pile of brass to run thru.   I recently purchased some red rouge compound to treat my tumbling media. Which is 50/50 walnut hulls and corn cob. I have treated with several teaspoons of this red compound. (Yes it will get on your hands.) This with a 1/4 cup or so of mineral spirits. Two hours in the tumbler and the dirtiest of my brass is sparkling. Not 3 hours with this solution and 2 more hours with another.  This is available thru B and B supply if you need anymore info contact me. I am not getting paid for endorsement but happy to share the info.  I got the primers out and began sizing and repriming. Sorting as I went along. Getting thru the pile and charging the powder in them I went to seating. Hour later, oh crap!  I'm out of bullets. This is in some case a bigger tragedy than being out of  beer.  I still have primed brass ready to go.  Why is it I have plenty of powder, primers and brass. Why does only one thing run out at a time. My case usually primers.  It's still crappy out, it's now dark and the range is closed even if I wanted to brave the cool air and moisture.  The local gun shops are are all closed for the day.  I probably could to get to the local Box Store (the ones with the geese) but it has lost it's appeal to me. They never seem to have what I am looking for.  I won't be wasting the fuel tonight.
   In the mean time I have ordered the Bi pod for the new carbine. The other add on's have been arriving and make this a fun project. I will post pictures soon.   I also see a local shop has been putting on or sponsoring a new Sunday event in the area. I think I will go observe next weekend,   One of the Cowboy clubs in Maryland would sometimes have a impromptu event after their Cowboy match.  Little bit different than the thundering smoked filled type of event I am use to. It's a shooting sport all the same.  I think I still have some black powder .45acp rounds left over ;)  Lets hope for nicer weather this upcoming week. So we all can get out to our favorite shooting places and enjoy the sport. till then I guess there's football. Oh yeah and beer

Another easy delicious dish
