Drove up to Georgetown, TX to bring this little guy down! Now just need the helmet!
All my life, I have had dreams where I can’t run from the bad guy, can’t scream for help, and now my gun won’t fire! I wonder why that is? My worst fears materialzing in dreams? Oh yeah, planes crash in my dreams too.
I’ll just stay awake.
Helped the missus fry some fish for our church’s 60th Anniversay Fellowship. I’m not going to lie, the propane tank scares me. Gas and flame = BOOM in my book! Glad Juan was there to supervise. I am too picky to eat the fish my wife made but she loves me enough to get me some barbacoa, so that’s what I ate. Everyone seemed to enjoy the fish though!
So, being obsessed with all things Google of course I wanted a Google Home since it was announced! I finally picked one up at Target a few weeks ago. Aside from asking it a few questions every now and then. Here is pretty much what I use it for.
The hardest part for me thus far with Kydex Holster making is getting everything straight! Goes to show that even though you have all the right tools, does not mean you’ll be able to compete with the big boys. Practice makes perfect though, so I whipped up this guy last night. Edges need more work, but I did a slightly better job at getting the fasteners aligned.
Looking at it now as I write this, my OCD is kicking in big time. (I didn’t even know I had OCD) Bottom fasteners should have been properly aligned along with the straighter edges. And after wearing it for a few hours, I probably should have inverted the placement of the Olight and the SOG Powerplay. The Olight is stabbing me a bit. I’ll just have to lose some weight.
Get your own Olight and SOG Powerplay:
After purchasing and loving a Kydex holster for my Glock 43 I thought it would be fun to try and make some on my own. It is very fun, and not as easy as YouTube makes it out to be. Here are some that I have made. Hopefully I continue to get better and better at it.
If you ever watch Top Shot on the HISTORY Channel you’ll see all kinds of weapons. From long rifles to rocks! When they break out the Tomahawks I grin from ear to ear. So since it is Christmas time, I HAD to add some to my Christmas Wishlist and the missus came through!
I’ve been telling friends that it is so satisfying to hear that THUNK when the hawk sticks. I have not been able to hone my technique. Sometimes I can stick all three, like above, and there are times where nothing sticks for several throws. It has been so much fun and I hope the fun never wears out!

Reddit.com’s slogan is “The Front Page of the Internet”, and it could be very true. It is a very large website with tons and tons of content. Several years ago, some Reddit users started an online Secret Santa where users would be randomly matched to each other to buy gifts for each other. Since Reddit is so large, the Secret Santa turned into the largest Gift Exchange ever by surpassing Guinness records.
This will be my seventh year being a part of this gift exchange. Over the years I have received some great gifts. Etched glasses, model cars, phone chargers, and even Black’s Brisket.
When you sign up you are given the opportunity to fill out a profile so that your Secret Santa can use to determine what to buy. I don’t fill out this profile. I simply input my Social Media profiles and let them decide what to get me by stalking me! It’s worked out great! This year was no different.
Pictured are two gifts I received from my giftee. The book that introduces me to Wood Carving arrived first. It’s titled The Beginner’s Handbook to Woodcarving. I was slightly overwhelmed because it requires some hand tools I didn’t have BUT to my extreme surprise a set of hand carving tools arrived the very next day! I can’t wait to try it out. I’m hoping to post some carves here as I try them.
You can get a copy of the book for yourself here.
