Hopefully everyone had a good, happy, safe, and filling Thanksgiving with your loved ones / families / brothers-in-arms / whomever else you might have spent it with. We actually had dinner at Cracker Barrel – no joke – and had to wait somewhere around 30 minutes to get a table; the food was decent (very good turkey and ham), and the price ($9 a person) could not be beaten, especially once you factor in the inevitable clean-up that no one ever wants to do.
Today, Better Half and I studiously avoided any major shopping center and bummed around downtown Chattanooga, which, by the way, is a very gun-unfriendly town – they have tried, very unsuccessfully, so far as I can tell, to declare significant portions of the entire downtown district as “victim disarmament zones”… er, sorry, “gun free zones”. For example, across the Tennessee River is the Walnut Street Bridge, a classic girder bridge that has been refurbished to be a walking bridge from Northshore to Downtown. It is quite clearly posted as being a “victim disarmament zone” on one end, and not at all posted on the other end, making it, so far as my reading of the state law goes, a non-binding posting, but I certainly will not be one to test that theory. I will leave it to the reader’s imagination as to which end of the bridge I entered first…
Anywise, the time off has also allowed me to finish up the image you see to the right, which I am very seriously considering putting on a t-shirt, if anyone is interested. For those folks who do not get the reference, allow me to first extend my condolences, and then demand you watch the following clip:
Ours are about 19 louder.
So what do folks think? T-shirt design, or another sufficiently-inside joke that no one will get it? I figure putting the design exactly as you see it on a white shirt, biased all the way to the right side, running as far up and down the shirt as I can get away with. Anywise, let me know what you think – prices will not be more than $20 a shirt, but we are going to do ordering a bit differently with this one, if I go forward with it.
And I would be remiss in not observing that Brownells came up with the original “Black Rifle Friday” concept, and that you can save 10% off any order greater than $150 with the code DU9 through the end of Monday.
