Thanks 'Dawg1215.    My wife gets full credit for the tree.  However, I did help decorate the house though with my version  of " Rudolph" Very Happy

I got a big screen smart TV. The old tube model with a digital converter was fine with me. This one has too many doodad programs that I will never use. It doesn't even have a place to attach the rabbit ears.  Wink

Why can't my kids leave me back in the 20th century where I belong?

I'm blessed with a wife who grew up behind the counter of her family's old-time sporting goods store, a bird dog kennel and their own trap range in their back yard. They always had a fishing boat of some sort and spent every spare weekend fishing streams in the high country, whether hiking or straddling their own string of horse.  As a result she thinks all this hunting and fishing stuff is perfectly normal, but she expects to be right in the thick of it too! I didn't recognize the significance when I was a young man strutting my courting clothes so many years ago, but I've been enjoying the benefits for almost 50 years now.

It all came to a head this Christmas when she put one of these under the tree, or rather in the driveway.  Not a blooming thing to do with muzzleloading, but I'll suffer through it.  Razz

BrownBear, That has to be for SW Florida, it's too small for Alaskan offshore waters. It sure is a honey.

Years ago I went diving on a 26' off Destin. The name of the boat was "The Money Funnel." I never heard a name that perfectly described what a boat is before that.

Yup! Your dad looks happy. Good that he's getting into a real muzzleloader.

Now, go buy him some real black powder.

Yup, we're wintering on Pine Island now.  This is most certainly a Florida boat with almost zero use in Alaska. But it's in the driveway here because our Alaska boat would have about zero use here! Smile

Money Funnel is the perfect name for a boat!  We keep the AK boat simple, so it's not too bad.  This new FL boat has so many electric doodahs on it, that might be just the right name for it too once they start wearing out....  Hopefully far into the future!

You're a purist 'Claw...but right.   I couldn't image building a traditional smoker without giving it a taste of the "real stuff".  I'm sure FG and his Dad will build a smoker that will eat whatever they feed it. Smile

Pato, just think about all that "Tin Foil" you'll save now that you were using on those old rabbit ears.  Very Happy

I did pre-order a new muzzy .54 cal. colonial rifle kit from Kibler's Longrifles.  43.25" Rice swamped barrel and a Chambers lock.  I won't see it for awhile due to the high number of pre-orders they received.  I decided on the easy way this time.  These kits should be easy to put together.  Once I get started I'll show the progress in the Gun Builder's Corner as it's coming along.

I'm not a builder, but i've read the inletting for a swamped barrel can be tricky. Is that all done for you? It looks like a nice kit.

Pete, this is truly a kit.  "Everything" is completely inletted on this stock.  I wanted to spend my time on the finishing.  My daughter gave me a couple of videos on "Beginning Carving and Beginning Engraving".  I have plenty of time to practice before the rifle is shipped.  I'm going to give it my best and see how it comes out.  I'll hunt with it next fall.  It's going to be a fun project and I should end up with a very nice rifle.

How much was the kit? Do they make a lefty?


edit.....I looked him up. No lefty and nothing bigger than a.45. That won't work in Colorado for big game. I'd have to use a conical to be legal for deer and no way to make it legal for elk. Too bad it looks like a nice gun.

Pete, No "Left" handed kits for this model at this time.  Right hand only.

I also got a new camera that actually takes pictures inside the house without giving me a hard time! That 24mm lens sure picks up the light a hell of a lot better! Also got a new Primos trail camera thats the size of my palm and 8mp. I will use this as my scouting camera as its so tiny and hard to find.

Yeah, I have to feed Bud twice a day too. Plus, a snack for lunch. He eats as much as I do. Maybe I shouldn't run him so much, but he loves it.
