I have had Alligator before, but never rattlesnake. I would like to try it sometime. I imagine it is best fried and served with some sort of Horseradish dip.

And I agree with you Theo..... if I see one... it must have "accidently" jumped in front of my 410 Shotgun....

Welcome to Tuesday, everybody! Getting a late start, but will finish strong.

No snake steak for me....woodchuck is about as exotic as I go when it comes to eating critters.

Actually, I've heard squirrel can be made into a pot pie, but it takes a lot of them.
I had a service manager at the last place I worked who used to hunt on his way to work, and skin stuff out behind the shop!

I got exactly two good moves done today, I have around 700 feet of heavy trimmer line on it's way, and I sent for an ADAPTOR that turns any floor jack into a transmission jack. The spool of line was $32, the jack adaptor was about $35. The adaptor was the only one I paid shipping on, I guess between the two buys I made out on that.

The next step up being a complete trans jack, starting at over $150 - I think this will do the job, and not be hard to find a place for when not in use.

I've also never seen a tranny jack that wasn't torn up! I would rather tear up something cheap, if it is going to be. But then, I take much better care of my tools than other people

Woodchuck is pretty good....you just gotta make sure you remove the sweat glands from underneath the front legs. I've had it fried, like chicken, which is OK. It's better in stew with potatoes, carrots, celery, onions and beef broth.

What can you compare it to? Rabbit? To me rabbit is only good in a stew

Good Wednesday morning everybody! It's going to be HOT-----keep cool.

Woodchuck is a bit gamier than rabbit......closer to venison, but not near as strong.

Oh man - 10:30 and I'm already hiding in the house. BUT! I blew almost all the rest of my trimmer line, didn't quit until I was ready to puke and fall over.

ANd I'm serious about that last bit. It's nasty enough without being covered head to foot with crud. I'll be pounding down water all day

I checked up on how Clay Millican was doing by the way:


Final order after 4 rounds of qualifying in Top Fuel at the NHRA Mello Yello Drag Racing Series, 44th Toyota NHRA Summernationals:
Psn Driver Vehicle ET Speed
1. Clay Millican Parts Plus Dragster 3.792 321.27
2. Khalid alBalooshi Al-Anabi Racing Dragster 3.803 322.58
3. Tony Schumacher U.S. Army Dragster 3.805 317.72
4. Doug Kalitta Mac Tools Dragster 3.809 320.36
5. Spencer Massey Schumacher Electric Dragster 3.816 318.17
6. Bob Vandergriff C&J Energy Services Dragster 3.824 320.13
7. Steve Torrence Capco Contractors Dragster 3.866 314.83
8. Shawn Langdon Al-Anabi Racing Dragster 3.870 318.39
9. T.J. Zizzo PEAK Performance Dragster 3.871 299.40
10. Dom Lagana Twlight Zone Dragster 3.876 314.24
11. Antron Brown Matco Tools Dragster 3.877 308.50
12. Morgan Lucas GEICO/Lucas Oil Dragster 3.881 307.16
13. Brittany Force Castrol Edge Dragster 3.908 315.78
14. Sidnei Frigo Artivinco Racing Dragster 3.931 301.87
15. Larry Dixon Rapisarda Autosports Dragster 3.943 318.47
16. Brandon Bernstein ProtectTheHarvest/MAVTV Dragst 3.978 315.42
--------- Not Qualified ---------
17. David Grubnic Candlewood Suites Dragster 3.979 303.91
18. Leah Pruett Dote Racing Dragster 4.294 248.61
19. Terry McMillen Amalie Oil/UNOH Dragster 6.230 310.70

Yep - he nailed down the number one spot!

I can't even imagine what going that fast in a rail looks like...

But now, who is this Khalid alBalooshi? Where did that guy come from? I don't think there's any doubt of the nationality, but wazzup with that?
He is from Dubai, and the Al-Anabi Racing Team Owner: His Excellency Sheik Khalid Al Thani

I don't think I'm ready for this...

Here's a bio page - http://www.alanabiracing.com/Khalid-alBalooshi

He's a serious contender! But I don't think he can match Clay

YO CLINT! I hope you took a peek at that bio page. THIS is Clay Millican's page here:
Clay Millican - Official Home of 6-Time World Champion Clay Millican

I think there's some fascinating stuff in both of them

~Your weather sounds familiar by the way, we may be a few points hotter. All I can say is that it is what we call: "NASTY HOT" out there...

I have brought BOTH of my dogs indoors
~They seem to agree with me. The huge A/C unit in the window was a brilliant idea! We are all camped out in the Den for now

Yeah - but did you notice?

They are converse allstars, what we used to call "CHUCKS"

Last I looked they were thirty dollars. They wear out quick too...

You don't even want to think about what a die-cast model of one of his cars costs!

I just checked on the seven day forecast. Up in the nineties, with some chance of t-storms for the rest of the month... I got out this morning at first light, did a few necessary chores, and retreated dogs and all. It was 80 before the sun even came up. This may be a bad year for wildfires, I need to clear some brush.
