Getting ready to staff the master gardener table at the farmer's market downtown. We have plants to sell and people to advise.

Appreciate the tip, thank you! I have been trying to alternate btween the tylenol & hydrocordone to try & wean myself off those pills. I'm down to about 3 hydro's per day. I tried the gym, the elliptical & recumbant bike are slow going but suprisingly made me feel better than the pool for now.

I'm enjoying a cup of tea on my patio while TB sleeps in and Violet sniffs everything in the yard to make sure nothing has changed since she did it last night!

What a beautiful and peaceful morning.

That was actually a problem in WWI. You had two or three main weapons makers making the same gun to the same specs, yet the parts weren't interchangeable. That made them hard to fix in the field. Things got better later, but military weapons are built "loose" anyway to keep on working when dirty. Commercial and custom guns are built to much tigher tolerances because it makes them more accurate. And tighter tolerances means you fit each part to the next. Plus there are little things you do to make things work better.
I guess it would be like the guys who drop a Chevy smallblock into their Ford coupe.

Thanks for explaining. I learned a lot. I knew military weapons were made loose to operate better dirty. The rest is news to me.

So, do you need a gun permit to order individual pistol parts?

I'm going to clean off the dining table (flat space that gathers stuff) and set up my new toaster oven there.

I gotta get rid of some stuff before someone reports us to Hoarders...

The only thing the gov't keeps an eye on is the frame, or receiver. That's the main component and the part that has a serial number on it. Everything else I ordered came directly to me.
I ordered the frame and slide from a company that makes frames and slides for 1911's. Then I had my local gun shop send him a copy of their Federal Firearms License. When the frame was done he sent it to them, they called me and then I went in and filled out the paperwork as if it was a working pistol.
If there was a problem with the frame I could send it back to the company and he could send it back to me because I already went through the background check for it. At least that's the way things work now...

Firearms older than fifty years I can have sent directly to me because I have a collector's license. That means I can buy certain guns, but I'm not supposed to sell them for a profit.
So I can have a WWII 1911 sent directly to me, but a modern version of the exact same gun I can't. Kind of weird, huh?

I am going to have to ask my girlfriend Nanny in Atlanta if she has a problem with hers.

I am waiting for TB to come back from walking Violet so we can head to the store. When I get back I will make a fruit salad to take to my in-laws as dessert for dinner tonight.

I am also waiting for my next door neighbour's granddaughter to get ready for her grad tonight. I have known her boyfriend since he was 9 and her for the past 6 years since we moved her. They have both had tough lives and are doing well. It will be nice to see them all dressed up!

Need to run to the store to pick some flowers up for the graves tomorrow. The 1 time of year we go to the cemetaries. Makes a person realize how short our time is on earth.
