About Will Hayden.

Everybody and his mother has talked about it enough so I am just gonna leave this here:

I have privately spoken with Stephanie and a few others close to the situation and have heard more than I ever wanted to know.

The Justice system will deal with Will Hayden but that’s a separate issue from the pain and heartbreak that has been caused.

That’ll be all.


You don’t know who is gonna attack you.

YORK COUNTY, S.C. — Kaylan Whiteside is behind bars as her grandfather, who was shot, recovers at Carolinas Medical Center.

The York County Sheriff’s Office would not tell Channel 9 exactly how Whiteside was involved in the crime, but she is facing an attempted murder charge.

A community is shocked by a crime that targeted an elderly veteran, and police believe a family member may have targeted him.
“I heard about it but I didn’t realize that it was his grandkid that got arrested,” Cara Berenyi, who lives in the area, said. “That’s pretty crazy.”

This is possibly the worst case scenario. The violation of the family bond and trust has to be unthinkable for most of us. I am willing to bet that there were enough hints that the granddaughter was not the most honest people in the world, but still I understand how somebody from that generation would be caught in the denial that blood would come after him.

Sad state of affairs. Time to revise the family bonds.

Gun Porn: Holland and Holland .577 Howdah Pistol

H and H Howda 577 cal


This is one of those guns that I have absolutely no practical use for, but I would love to have one.

Pedersoli has the Howdah Hunter 20 Gauge Black Powder Pistol with Presentation Box and Accessories at a reasonable $949.99 at Cabela’s and it is not an item that requires background check so you can order it and have it delivered to your door.

Back in the Old Days

Marlin Rifle Shotgun

From what I gather, the Junior Sales Club of America was designed for Kids to sell cards (blank, those were the day when people communicated via pen and a stamp) and after so many boxes sold, they got to select a reward.

If you check the circled items, you may (or not) be surprised that they could select as reward Marlin 22 rifles and a Marlin shotgun.  Obviously this is pre-GCA68 so that means the guns were shipped directly home to boot.

It explains all those school shootings back then….oh wait.

Moms Demand: Taking the SuperMom thing a bit too serious.

Trying really hard not to laugh:

Moms Demand Super Mom


Remember, they get all mad and pissy when they feel we are not taking them serious and accuse us of being sexist and misogynist plus a whole ‘nother truckload of adjectives.

For people who are so conscious of their image……Oy!



And now, a word from out fashion consultant Edna Mode:
