Don't you go near that dog, you understand? Don't go near him, he's just as dangerous dead as alive.


Cross posting my post from the blessed thread.

My nephew loves my dog and has been wishing for one of his own.

My dog for reference.


Today a mini version appeared in their yard.


My nephew now believes he wished a copy of my dog in to existence. He's currently playing with him in the backyard.
The dogs real owner has been found and contacted.

Got my second dose of Pfizer today. It's been six hours and I'm not feeling terrible, but I'm not getting any 5G connectivity either.

My first dose was worse than my second but I also took time off for my second and tried to work through my first so that’s a big factor there.

Mrs. T's RA is under control for the first time in a while, so she wanted to go shooting. And we did. Revolver day for me (and my 22/45), 1911 day for her. Her 45 and my Model 10 probably got the biggest workouts. She hasn't been able to go shooting with me very much lately, so this was a nice treat. And even without regular practice, she still shoots her 45 really well. It's maddening.

Some guys a few stalls down were being a wee bit obnoxious with their ARs, at one point having a mag-dumping contest. They did a lot of that, even with their pistols. When they started sweeping up at the end of the hour, I asked if they reloaded, they said no, and they swept up their brass for me. I was just going to grab what was around our feet. We got to talking, and they're OK guys. One of the dudes is a California transplant, who is just now able to get into guns other than 22's. He was marveling at how favorable Illinois' gun laws are.

How hosed up are your state's gun laws when Illinois is practically Texas in comparison?

My favorite range officer, Dennis the Menace, was manning the store. He told me to look at the steel plates on the ceiling when I got out there. Sure enough, in a spot about 4 yards from the line, there was a big-rear end dent from a 44 magnum. Remember the four rules, folks!

I could wax poetically for hours on this topic, but I'd be repeating myself yet again.

It's not just that the laws are overly restrictive, but numerous, arbitrary, and confusing; and that's just on the written level, not the enforcement level.

I have my wireless access point finally set up. Well, not totally set up. It's just mocked up right now, but it's all hooked up and working. I went with a Joowin (AC 1200), from Amazon. It wasn't very expensive, and even though I ended up buying flat Cat6 cable because I'm an idiot, I think I can get this working semi – professionally. I'm in my garage right now, I have almost full bars, and before, I would not have even been able to connect unless some 5G snuck through. So, this isn't too bad. My whole tiny backyard is more than covered.

I would have had to select the 2.4 or 5.8 G connections to go with repeater mode, so instead, I set it up as a separate access point called Partytown. Because we really party down. And, if the inside AP is just barely strong enough, we can switch to the more powerful signal more easily.

I like to go with things like "FBI van #3" for an ssid. Keep 'em guessing. Even more fun when the neighbor renames their network "FBI van #1".

One of my neighbors is a tennis academy of some sort.

My brother had Her You Own Wifi Penny or whatever from Big Bang Theory.

I like the FBI ones, and Flowers By Irene is a classic. I know to many people who have done those, though. So my deal is, if you're over at the T House, and we're hanging on the backyard, you might ask, what's the wifi? And I say, Partytown, fast if you can see it, slow if you can't.

But you won't get the password without saying the right phrase.

When Occupy Wall Street was going on outside my office ten years ago I thought someone was trying to be funny calling their open, unsecured WiFi "NYPD TOC" but nope, turns out I was actually stealing internet from the po-lice. Only found out when they finally got around to putting a login screen to it.

I got my second Pfizer dose around noon on Sunday.

Arm got a little sore that afternoon. Headache a little later.

At midnight on the damned dot I got chills.

I soaked completely through the bedsheets with my sweat.

Yesterday, every joint just ached on top of the headache.

Soaked completely through the then-freshly washed bedsheets last night, but otherwise feel fine right now.

10/10 would do again.

My wife got Deathwish once; we heard about it on either some TV show or a video we'd watched on YouTube. I can't remember, as it was a few years ago.

I was not a coffee drinker at the time, but I tried it, and it was just really strong coffee, far as I could tell. She spent a pretty penny on it, so she soldiered on through as much of it as she could, but we ended up discarding quite a bit of it because it was, frankly, terrible. I think you can get the same basic experience by buying prison-grade generic coffee (the stuff that makes plain-Jane Folgers look gourmet) and using 3 times the normal amount of coffee for each serving.

We weren't fans.

Best bang for your coffee buck in terms of balancing good taste and cheap price? Probably Duncan Donuts.

The "industry consensus" is that Krispy Kreme and Dunkin' have Great Coffee for the price.

Deathwish is really just a gimmick and ranks right down there with Starbucks.
