    Good advice.

    My son, the emergency room physician in Springfield, MO posted this on FaceBook: "Just a tip, before the official news breaks. Do not break into someone's home in the Ozarks...someone's got a hole in their head and another in their pelvis as proof that my advise is sound...."

    Kinda goes for anywhere in the mountains. Mountain folks just ain't right in the head. Takes a police officer an hour to get up here sometimes. Kinda out in the sticks.
    It wasn't a party unless it involved fire, an ATV, a chain saw and whiskey.

    In my opinion the burgular got what he deserved. However, that kind of law scares the heck out of me. And then to add more confusion to this message I will add---If I was out there, miles from police, I would do the same thing.

    Gosh life is confusing.

    Enjoy,

    Not confusing at all Jim. Right is right, and wrong is wrong.
    If you don't take pride in your work, life get's pretty boring.

    Rule of thumb is if you don’t know what tool to buy next, then you probably don’t need it yet.

    Can't be any clearer than that.

    Some of us flatlanders, too, Mark. There's a Remington 870 leaning against the bedroom wall, and it's stuffed with three #6, and two #00 buck.

    Police are 15 minutes from me but I'm protected by Smith & Wesson.

    I believe that Oregon has a law that your house is your castle and if someone break into it you can shoot them. State Trooper said, just don't move them, leave them in your house, they can tell if you moved them.

    So if someone breaks into my house they will see how a 38 hollow point bouces around in the chest cavity.
