This is a really interesting article about a “get home gun”  set-up, for the case & foam:

And once you pick your case, I’d suggest you look to MyCaseBuilder.com for the foam. They have the most user-friendly software that allows you to build a custom case, just like this one.  They even have a photo transfer tool that allows you to take a picture of a holster, or anything, and input some basic measurements to achieve really custom shapes.

I’d never heard of that site, it looks mighty handy. It’s great to have a case that perfectly fits what you put into it.

I wake up

and realize where I am

and who I am

and who I could be

if I tried.

Then I become frustrated.

But I live on anyway.


Before I woke up

I dreampt…

of what I could be,

and how glorious that would be

to be like that,

then I get hopeful

and I live on.


Old poems

I found an old book of poems I wrote years ago and I’ll be editing and posting them here.

Don’t expect to be dazzled and you won’t be disappointed.


Protips for Busy People

Protip: You know how milk and runny food spilled on a table runs down the side and drips off but some sticks to the bottom of the table and dries because you never wiped it off?

Hit that with a power sander and it cleans right up.


Everyday things I personally invented:

Turning on the faucet and holding my hand beneath the water flow while drinking the water just as quickly as it comes out so that none is wasted and no cups get dirty.

Plus, it’s how the warriors drank from streams in the old days when they had to be ready for attack at any minute.

My kids are no less likely to spring upon me should they catch me unawares.
