[QUOTE=Gsniper;1058794115]I'm 52 years old. Every time I go visit my Mom she sends me out of the house with a bag of grapes or an apple or something. Like I'm 5 on the way to the bus stop. It's hilarious. I keep waiting on her to send me out with goldfish crackers.[/QUOTE)

Visiting my parents last week in Florida was the same way.
It was like I was 6 six and didn't know my butt from a hole in the ground.

My dad was the worse. We spent all those days fishing alot of it around some submerged timber trying to get the bigger bass or for me any fish.

A couple of times I broke the line and had to get a new hook/jig. I know I am rusty tying hooks, jigs etc.. but he acted like I just got out of the cradle. He would not let me tie one of anything.

It was great to be around him, because to be honest he is my best friend and we have a great time together but it was kind of weird though.

Plus my Mom tried to feed me every 10mins.

Sounds like we need to have a SOCNET-wide safety stand down. I can do up some power points. Maybe get our annual SACO training done too...

Ya, power tools, chainsaws etc. can make for a really bad moment when one least expects it! Fortunately, I still have all my digits, for now.

My table saw showed me how fast something can come off the blade bounce off two walls and hit me in my back before I realized what had happened. It was a knot that was loose and i cut across it. Please no ppts.

If you'd had on your reflective belt and eye pro it never would have almost happened. Safety is everybody's job.

When your flying solo in the garage, or back yard, or driveway, et al; you are your own safety officer. I’m not talking PPE...

Out of curiosity, were there any issues on the ballot, or just primaries?

People second guessing that kid who got killed when he attacked that active shooter in Colorado last week. He fought, he got killed trying to do something. I've heard several interviews questioning that. That young man grabbed his balls and got in the fight and it's being questioned. UFB

Just municipal election for commission seats.

Many people don't realize what an impact local politicians can have on their lives.

Especially in this one. There is a vocal minority that want the city to take over the schools. There's nothing wrong with the school system, they're just pissed they weren't zoned for the school they wanted. It would cost the city a fortune to take over the schools and cause a significant tax increase.

Yes, young man is a Hero. He that gives his life to protect others from harm - no greater love or bravery.

The people I've been hearing from (and I've got friends on both sides of the issue) are bemoaning the fact that Kendrick Castillo and Riley Howell were in a position that they had to give up their lives in a school.

That sucks. Of course it does. I wish we lived in a world where that kind of crap didn't happen. I get it.

But I'd rather live in a world where people like Kendrick Castillo and Riley Howell are willing to lay down their lives than in a world where no on eis.

The World just lost a great young guy that was always happy and hated to see other people with a frown.

That just goes to show that you never really know what a person is thinking until they let you take a glimpse into their world. I hate to hear of his loss and offer my condolences to you and his family. Sounds like a great loss.
