What always cracks me is those old-timey mustaches.

My great-grandfather's father had one of those--mustaches, I mean, not saloons.

You remember the bit at the end of "Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid"?.

After that, he moved to Westport, CT, which became a much more interesting place. The rest of you lost out.

Sorry.

All of a sudden, I've got me a hankerin' for a Henry Weinhard's Private Reserve.

One of my ancestors was being hunted by the law; he doubled back and swore in as a paid posse member looking for himself.

He was also an ex-compadre of revolutionaries in Mexico. He left Mexico in a hurry when he found out he was an EX-compadre.

Ah, glass plate negatives. Gotta love 'em. What people don't know about the old Collodion images was what it took to make them;

You had to mix the chemistry on-site and paint the solution it on a glass plate in the dark, load it up, take it outside and get the picture, then manage to get it back in the tent and develop it, all in the 3-5 minutes while it was still wet (before the ether evaporated).

Doing this in such a rush in a small portable tent was fun;
The chemicals were all poisonous, flammable, explosive, or some combination of the three. Get some in your eyes, it made you blind. Mis-mix the chemistry in almost any way and it exploded. Except those combinations that only created clouds of Cyanide gas. While you were in a small dark tent.

How do I know this? Believe it or not, some of us still shoot it as a hobby from time to time. Not many of us mind you, as it is rather insane, but a few of us still do. Its a hoot.

We have a photo in my family of my grandfather sitting atop Pancho Villa's horse, Pancho next to him. You know, the evil Pancho Villa, who paid him for everything (and then some) they took. A year later, the US Army basically stole all of my grandfather's cattle and took over his ranch, that's how the family ended up in Nebraska. So much for the Right not to have to quarter troops.

America is a lie.

I may not do many things well, but I'm a lot better at hanging out in front of a pub than Butch and Sundance were.

How do you keep a Mormon from drinking all your beer when fishing?

Bring 2, they'll keep an eye on each other.

Josh was upset that Holden had stolen his recipe for organic free range gluten free faux-oatmeal cupcakes, so it was no surprise when he pulled out his vintage Lone Ranger water pistol that his parents had sent him from back home in Iowa along with his last rent check for his "loft" in East South Western Billyburg. The water within, filtered at home from collected roof-top rain water, would surely shrink Holden's imported hand crafted sweater made from free-trade certified wool. Oh yes, vengeance would be his.

Am I the only one that can't find the slideshow? All I see is one picture at the top of the article, and it ain't Butch and Sundance.

I found the main page to be horrid. I couldn't find 'The next image'. Suddenly I realised the slideshow had opened in a second tab, and it worked very well. No loading delays between images, easy to find button, no ads. But the original page. Monstrosity. So my Boobies was about the original page, second was because I magically found the good slide show. I'd been blaming my privoxy, but I had to blame the page. Then took it back.

It does suck, but if you find that 'other' slideshow portion, it's really not that bad.

Looking through the Girl Scouts collection as linked on that page, I can't help but feel my mom's instruction of us was the last of the Old Guard. My SIL was saying just yesterday that they don't teach anything like it anymore, so she won't be getting her kids into GS.

============

Yeah, movies tell you all kind so of shiat.

For example, the "buscadero" holster.

www.awlleather.com.au

This is what all the cowboys used, right? Ah, nope. This was invented by some wardrobe guy in Hollywood to make wearing a gun look cool.

Had one. It was fab.
Used it for my Ruger single 6.

Looks like bars and saloons in 1900 Utah were major sausage fests. "I'll just drink my whiskey at home if you don't mind"

And in photo #3...."OMG!!!!! A Pit Bull...run for your lives!!! it's probably only moments away from ripping somebodies throat out!!!"

And apparently card cheats in 1900 Utah were really farking dumb.

When you click on NEXT, all the way below the floorhumper ads, on the next page is a box with "pictures", click that and then the slideshow begins. Crappy ass site, just what I would expect from the land of arranged multiple marriages.

Why? The ever so informative captions were... wait. There were none.
