Re: Dentist and Nitrus Oxide



Speaking of dentists and thread drift (I'm guilty as charged). Have some humor from "The Little Shop of Horrors". There's even a .38 snubbie in the clip.

Re: DFW West/Southwest Quadrant Breakfast

Here's a copy of the venue change reminder I posted on Thursday: Manny's Cafe 4019 Fort Worth Hwy Hudson Oaks, TX 76087 It's a small cafe located in the David's Stove Shop building on the north side of westbound I20 at Mikus Road. There is minimal signage for the cafe, so look for David's Stove Sho...

Re: War with Iran

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cyclone-class_patrol_ship The US Navy vessels detailed above are only 331 tons, and are being used in the area of operations at the Straits of Hormuz. Their draft is shallow enough that they can patrol in waters where large US Navy vessels can't go. The US Coast Guard i...

Re: Short trip ideas

http://www.luckenbachtexas.com/home.htm Another site you might like would Luckenbach, Texas, site of the famous song. It is close to Fredericksburg also. You take US 290 to FM 1376. I believe there's a Shell gas station/c-store on the corner of 290/1376, and then it's only a few miles to the venue....

Re: Off The Beaten Path - Falfurrias, TX

If you drive northbound on US 281, it is 75 miles from McAllen to Falfurias. What you will have to stop for is one of those large federal facilities run by Border Patrol, ICE, or some such, in Falfurrias. All traffic must pull over in what essentially is a giant carport, since it has to be high enou...

MediocreMexican: Welcome to the board. Choosing your firearms is usually the easy part. You have 2 good ones. Choosing holsters is more vexing.

Re: Short trip ideas

Greece is ridiculous for a gentleman who wants to go no further than 350 miles from Houston.

Re: PA: No place but Philly

Some years ago, sociologists examined multiple large American cities, aiming to rank them for politeness vs. rudeness. Who knows if their methodology was any good, but their stats ranked Philly as the rudest city in America. YMMV, but remember, Philly is where Santa Claus was harassed by a stadium f...

Re: Ross Perot death

IIRC, he railed against the NAFTA agreement....the sound of American jobs being sucked southward. But as a good businessman, he hedged his bets. The Alliance area of Fort Worth contains Alliance Airport, and a lot of other infrastructure, which enables both domestic businesses and those engaged in i...

Re: DFW North/NorthEast Quadrant Breakfast

The rudys.com website was checked by me since our breakfasts there offer plenty of room, infinite loiter time (as they say in the military drone game), and reasonable prices. Unfortunately the only Rudy's east of Dallas is Tyler, and that's too far east. One day this week, I'll take a ride out to Te...

The fireworks robber, shot in the face with his own gun, has died.
