Default What to do on a dreary day?

Hurricane Nate started dumping light to moderate rain on us yesterday evening and continued throughout today. Last night, with nothing to do, I decided to make a batch of my Hot Tamales. Today, after filling up on tamales I disassembled my little Browning 1911-22 and smoothed out the trigger pull some. I don't like the magazine safety so I think I am going to do away with it.

Whoa! I like both pics!!!
As long as we have power in really bad weather, I'll do some cooking.
Just a rainy day. I always have more pictures to add to my ever growing files. OR, I'll crank up the Jane's Flight Simulator and fly a few missions in a P-51, P-38, P-47 or even a FW-190 or Me-109.
Or maybe just pull the guns out of the safe and mess with them.
I never get bored, no matter what the day is like.
What time we eat???

The last question is the most important one.

I'm running out of things to do with all the rainy days we've had lately. If I don't get out and mow every 3 or 4 days, the grass ends up a foot to a foot and a half high in a week. I actually mowed in the heat of the day Saturday as that was going to be the only dry time. The whole neighborhood did too.

Never had a tomale, but the 45 sure looks nice.

If the caption is correct, it's the .22 version and about 3/4 size. I looked at one - lots of cool factor but not enough to warrant the price tag.

Yes, that's the little Browning 1911-22.

Tamales are one of those things that can be tasty and nice or absolutely fabulous. It all depends on the filling and the masa and the hulls. Around here the corn husks are expensive as hell which seems like a rip off to me considering that this is Mexico Norte. My favorite is shredded pork or beef with hot sauce. You can go through them like Sherman through the south.

Down here, corn husks are cheap. But then we have sweet corn growing all over the area. And okra, green beans, tomatoes, pole beans, boniato, yucca, but no regular potatoes any more.
