    I figured it would get edited, that’s why I said what did. It was an attempt at humor, I laughed.

    Life is short and you’re not promised a minute past the one you just lived. Recently losing my mom has made me see things differently, maybe that explains some of my wacky postings.



    I meant no harm, just making light of the conversation.

    I know this much, I've known some cbers that wanted/ enjoyed sounding like those ch 6ers. Constantly repeating the same phrase over & over & over again. On the flip side, I've known those who run some power yet prefer to sound clean, & loud. The ones who sounded clean were the ones I personally have chosen to emulate. No b.s. like echo, or noise toys, I want to mess with you I'll play a bit of classic country. A little E.T. or Hank Sr. maybe a little Bob Wills. Just to see about tweeking a nose or three.

    Bob Wills is still the King..

    I will say though, i do like my noise toys, but they have song clips recorded on them for being played at strategic times.

    Lord I can still remember
    The way things were back then
    In spite of all the hard times
    I'd live it all again
    To watch the Dallas Cowboys
    Run the double wing
    I'm proud to be from Texas
    Where Bob Lilly is still the king.

    When they talk about pro football
    And look back through the years
    You hear about the Packers
    And the old Chicago Bears
    But cross that old Red River, hoss
    And they don't mean a thing
    Down here we've got the Cowboys
    And Bob Lilly is still the king.

    In the golden days of the Cowboys
    Folks came from miles around
    To watch that Doomsday Defense
    Knockin' Redskins on the ground
    And Tom Landry's space age offense
    With Danderoo at quarterback
    Throwin' bombs to Bobby Hayes
    Who ran the hundred in nothin' flat.

    Now if you've never been here
    Then you might not know
    There's a whole lot more in Texas
    Than just the Alamo
    It's the home of Roger Staubach
    And lots of other things
    But he'll be the first to tell you
    Bob Lilly is still the king.

    That is one heck of a ammo box collection you got there, I'm seeing what looks to be some .30 carbine, .38 super, .44 special, 9mm, 30-40 krag, .308, 30-06. Wow!
    Gotta say, that Grant XL is about my favorite thing in that pic! Love those radios. Currently on my 3rd one, first one went missing years ago, second one needs work, third one seems to be just fine.
    Haven't seen a Washington base in years, looks good!

    I had already figured that those boxes were full, no other reason to keep them! Nice Colt .32acp!

    I have had one of those little Shooting Stars for about 29 years now, and the thing still works. Unbeleavablbe
