Stuff.

Turk Turon is in town.

Bobbi grilled up some steak à la Roseholme last night; I remain flabbergasted by the results. I have never had a steak that good in a restaurant, and I've eaten some mighty good restaurant steaks, let me tell you.

I mean to write something for my sadly-neglected other blog this morning. Just as soon as I get back from my bicycle ride, that is. I need to pedal down to whatever Kinko's is calling themselves these days and do some printing and faxing.

Huh. Firefox's spell checker knows "Kinko's".

Anyhow, what with the trip to the almost-a-dentist yesterday, I've been a week and a day without my morning rides, and so it's time and past time to climb back on that horse.

Fun show tomorrow. Need to get a Raven IWB to hold my M&P 9 with the CTC Lightguard on it. I'm pretty well sold on that thing after that midnight match. You can't hit what you can't see, after all.

Also, pictures of great big trees and great big chainsaws right here. Found here.

Random gratuitous picture of the Columbia River Gorge snapped from a bus window.

Tam,

According to Iain @ Crimson Trace, Bladetech also makes or is making holsters for the M&P with the CT Lightguard attached. As of a few months ago they didn't have one for the 45, but I think they have the 9mm available...

Jay G,

I have a Bladetech OWB, but I need an OWB holster like a hen needs a flag.

Besides, I like RCS's gear.

The Columbia Rover Gorge is one of the most beautiful places on Earth.

Hard to believe one can drive just minutes from a major metropolitan area into such wonder.

Aaron said...

Columbia Gorge?!? You were out in my neck of the woods? Woot!

It truly is one of the most beautiful places in the world, but it's filled with some of the most corrupt government officials. It also has (may have changed recently) one of the worst welfare policies ever. When they shut down logging operations and ran everyone out of business, they extended welfare benefits from something like 2 years to forever.

I see Bigfoot waving from the top left of the falls.

@ Robert, not bigfoot. Its a Wookie =)

Aaron: I left for that reason. The damned socialists drove me out.

Tam: Nice lumber pics. That family made a big chunk of change having that tree felled.

Big stand alone doug firs near people's homes are dangerous. They have fairly shallow root systems, and come down like matchsticks when a once a century typhoon plants itself in the Willamette Valley

And can we have a recipe for the yummy steak?

Tam said...

Al T.,

"And can we have a recipe for the yummy steak?"

You can find it in comments here?.

The key ingredients seem to be a high-quality cut of beef (yay, Fresh Market!) and some honest-to-goodness lump hardwood charcoal instead of pressed petroleum briquettes. Bobbi adds a pat of Irish butter right after the turn, which is the cherry on the icing of the cake of the whole thing...

roland said...

Yeah, what Al T. said.

Mike Gallo said...

I'd offer to make you that holster in exchange for the mountains of entertainment your blog has given me over the years, but I don't have a lightguard to mold it. Hit me up by email if you want to work something out, though.

Al T. said...

Yes, the real charcoal is an eye opener. One thing I found out recently was to let the steaks warm to room temperature. Makes a difference as does the Plugra.

For pictures of BIG trees, look up Darius Kinsey, he was a photographer who worked mostly in the Skagit back before the advent of the chain saw.
