Nuns (and guns)

I was schooled by nuns of the  Dominican Order in grammar school. They were some tough old coots (and some young but they all seemed old to me at the time). I went to summer camp because of those nuns (and other things), where I learned, from Marist brothers, how to shoot rifles (BB and 22 rimfire). Lately I have been thinking about those nuns, for some reason, and wondering what nuns would look like today if they advocated things like summer camp where kids could learn how to use guns. I found a picture, online, that pretty much sums up how I think a modern nun, who advocated gun rights, might look like.

Scary, isn't it. Cool too. Not very realistic though and not because she is holding an AK but because there are just so few nuns left today who wear the habit.

Secret Service Prostitute Scandal: I Knew It Just Had To Be GWB's Fault

See the article: Documents detail serious accusations against Secret Service agents since 2004 at:  http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2012/06/15/us-reveals-accusations-against-secret-service/?test=latestnews?test=latestnews#ixzz1xygEpDau

Since 2004, eh! Back when GWB was in office! He must be at fault or so I would bet some lib-tard is thinking.

BBQ Grill Woes

Bought a Brinkman Elite 5 burner grill (4 regular burners, one sear burner and a side burner - sounds like 6 burners to me but they said 5) yesterday, at Home Depot. Of course, I got it assembled by them since I can be sort of all thumbs with a temper.

Brought it home in one of their rental trucks. Now it has to go back for an exchange or refund because the sear burner knob does not turn correctly nor does it operate the igniter as it should. You get what you pay for I suppose and $324.00 was not that much. Wish I could but I cannot afford the $1,400.00 for a similar sized Weber. I am waiting for them to call me back about making an exchange, I know they have others of the same model in stock.

I want to pick up the new one, bring it home and offload it, load the old one onto truck, bring it back, then go home and have a BBQ. It seems the guy in the BBQ Department has to check with his boss to see if it is okay for me to buy the new one, then bring back the old one for a refund. They wanted me to bring in the old first to make an exchange, which would have meant going there first in my car to rent a truck, driving home with empty truck to pick up old one, bring the old one back on the truck for exchange, bring new one home on truck, bring back truck, then drive back home in my car. I don't understand how my step, time and gas saving way could be a hassle, it seems like a no brainer to me, but they must check with management first. What a pain in the neck, it is about to ruin my seventh Saturday of the week.

All the best,
