Re: No star in upper right corner of your DL? Problems after 10/1/2020.

I have received two letters from DPS about my renewal. My CDL expires next October. Regardless I would have to go in for the renewal in any case with that license. I am just going to wait. In the last few years any flying I have done has been by private plane so it wouldn't matter anyway. You get to...

Re: Help identifying rattler!!

911 Out in this part of the world, 911 is not the best option. More than once they have gotten lost getting to the ranch. Takes them about 45 minutes when call is placed. That's the reason I said what I did earlier. I can pass by several friends on the way in. Stop and let one of them drive. Can su...

Re: Help identifying rattler!!

If I happened to get bit I would listen to my own self first. Call a buddy en route so he can either follow me or see that I get there. 20 miles to town and hospital is first building on the left!!

Re: Help identifying rattler!!

Growing up in the South Texas brush country, one thing you always did was keep at least one eye open for rattlers. Knock on wood I have never been bit but have had them hang up in my shirt cuff, :shock: pull strap of my boots, and chaps. It gets your attention real quick. I hope the OP is OK. Not mu...

Re: Help identifying rattler!!

I was wondering if anyone has heard from this fellow. I would almost be willing to bet train riding money he had a problem with the bite.

Wasn’t the Corpus Christi one the original?

Re: Whataburger majority stake sold to Chicago investment firm

My first visit to a Whataburger was in late 1965. A buddy & I went to Corpus and saw the one on Ayers St. We both had a double meat and cheese. They were great.
Today I only go to one if there is nothing else close. Their service sucks.....

Re: Need to clean really tarnished brass?

I'm going to begrudgingly start wet tumbling, but without the SS pins. I'm going to do it primarily to get away from the lead laden dust. I've tried used fabric softener sheets from the dryer, but they are only marginally effective. Even if I wear a mask, the dust settles in the garage and gets sti...

Re: Kingwood area near Houston Hotel help

I really appreciate ya'lls help on this. This will be her first big trip on her own, albeit with a friend, but driving herself and without a parent. I'm sure many of you know what I'm going through and where my stress levels are heading. My youngest daughter is 41. I remember when she took her firs...

Re: Can Beto O’Rourke really beat Ted Cruz?

I can send him some "earth" from our water lot where all the cows roam around. If he got a belly full of that stuff it might do him some good. :lol: I don't think it has any magical powers though!! He wouldn't even notice. He's full of bull stuff already. You got that right, and way too many folks ...

Re: Looking to get into Sporting Clays / Suggestions?

I see you are in Katy. If you are looking for an instructor, you have some very good ones in your area. I personally would contact Adam Blair at Westside sporting grounds. He is a very good instructor and I'm sure he could help you out. Talk to him about what your goals are and what gun he suggests...
