I have the little house open for rent this winter. $100 a night for up to 3 people, $125 a night for 4-5 people with a 3 night minimum.

Oh my poor Vikings fans, I am truly sorry.  My brother went home and went to bed in the 3rd quarter, worse yet his wife is a Packer fan, I’m guessing she finished watching at home.

Other than that not much going on. Marlin is putting on an addition at Timberline Sports for a new showroom.  We are going to try to make a time lapse video of the building being put up.


A young cowboy sitting in a saloon one Saturday night
recognized an elderly man standing at the bar who, in his day, had been
the fastest gun in the West. The cowboy took a place next to the
old-timer, bought him a drink and told him of his great ambition to be a
great shot… ‘Could you give me some tips?’ he asked. The old man said,
‘Well, for one thing, you’re wearing your gun too high – tie the holster
a little lower down on your leg. ”Will that make me a better
gunfighter?’…… ‘Sure will ‘ The young man did as he was told, stood
up, whipped out his .44 and shot the bow tie off the piano player.
‘That’s terrific!’ said the cowboy. ‘Got any more tips?’ ‘Yep,’ said
the old man. ‘Cut a notch out of your holster where the hammer hits it –
that’ll give you a smoother draw’ ‘Will that make me a better
gunfighter?’ asked the young man. ‘You bet it will,’ said the
old-timer. The young man took out his knife, cut the notch, stood up,
drew his gun in a blur, and then shot a cufflink off the piano player.
‘Wow!’ exclaimed the cowboy ‘I’m learnin’ somethin’ here. Got any more
tips?’ The old man pointed to a large can in a corner of the saloon.
‘See that axle grease over there? Coat your gun with it.’ The young
man smeared some of the grease on the barrel of his gun. ‘No,’ said
the old-timer, ‘I mean smear it all over the gun, handle and all.’
‘Will that make me a better gunfighter?’ asked the young man. ‘No,’
said the old-timer, ‘but when Wyatt Earp gets done playing the piano,
he’s gonna shove that gun up your ass, and it won’t hurt as much..
