We were on Smith Mountain Lake a few weeks ago and got to see a pair of them doing the low level flyover.

Stopped at an Amish veggie stand on the way home, good stuff.

How'd they land an Osprey at a veggie stand?

I fish Smith Mountain a lot in the winter time.

If you don't smell ozone, the radiation won't kill you before next week.

Ospreys are so expensive because if you land them on a veggie stand the blades can make Julian fries.

Good deal TD. Now you've got plenty of money for hookers and blow! Buddy of mine finally did has last one a couple of years ago. He went to the local dealership and took a bunch of pictures of him with a new Vette and put them all over facebook just to fuck with his ex.

Finding spent brass in a tight little pile as I wring out new sights on the XDM.

Pay on the front end or pay on the back end, but one way or another you're going to pay.

Thumbs up

Paint crew just finished up yesterday. Pressure washed and re-stained the house, painted the deck, cleaned up some mold issues. The house looks awesome!

Those few minutes of quiet, from all of the shit going on while walking around my property's trails through the woods enjoying the slow emersion into a state of peacefulness and serenity, even if for only a few fleeting moments it seems.

Most of the time I am listening to Pink Floyd during my walks, which helps.

Starting physical therapy this morning and having the therapist tell me that I'm already where I'm to be at when we're done on range of motion.
Down side, no strength training for another two weeks, but she does want me to come in once a week for muscle massage therapy.
She is well withing SOTB's standards!!

No, the "I'm just happy to be next to my person" sigh of contentment. But they share the others just as often.

Finding out one of my Terps from 2010 is taking the ASVAB and wants to join the Army. Something about "giving back to the country that gave so much to him and his family"
