    No, but I considered wearing them. That is until I realized that they would interfere with my IWB holster.

    Anyone do anything exciting this year?

    This was one of my favorite threads so I figure I would keep it going.

    clubbed a baby tree and hugged a seal. everything else that happened after the hug could be attributed to the bottle of wine... that the seal drank.

    I'm going to have a huge bonfire and fuel it with waste oil and PCBs. Also some Mercury thrown in for good measure.

    Drove my diesel pickup around on its race program, smoked out a few liberals driveing their hybreds. Maybe tonight see if I can find a prius and set it onfire with my waste oil.

    Um... Was this recently?

    google, google, google...

    Oh. Yesterday. Well... let's see. I helped about a dozen and a half people drive several thousand lead bullets back into mother earth. That count?

    Oh, yeah... I also started a grill with an old copy of The Outdoor Message and poured lots of smoke into the atmosphere. And then grilled hot dogs on it.

    But the shooters DID all police their brass... that should make the ecofreaks happy.

    I chopped down a few windmills with an axe, just a typical day for me.

    Well, let's see....we went to a gun show. We bought art that involved the death of a tree and lots of little engines spewing exhaust into the air. We placed an order at the print shop...more tree death. We added to noise pollution by blowing the train horns several times.

    Crap. I feel like a slacker. We will endeavor to do better next year!

    A "herd"? Shouldn't it be a "bludgeoning"? Or at least a "furrier'?

    A furrier would be a group of hippies.

    Scituate had a "large" celebration yesterday praising the new windmill. I sooo wish I still had my Camaro with open exhaust just so I could let it idle near the tent.

    I planted 3 bushes and a tree and cut down two massive dead trees. I didn't realize it was earth day, though.
