Day By Day

    Now THAT’S some high frequency lovin’.
    (So says the commo guy who just got his General license, and missed Advanced by “that much”)

    • Brasspounder

      73, D, from a fellow ham who has held every class of license but Novice over the past 34 years. I upgraded to Extra back when doing so meant passing a 20WPM code test, and I can testify that the Advanced exam was the toughest.

    • SheepDog

      I’m working on Advanced. Went from Novice to Tech+ then to General. Back before we had StarTreck communicators, I was a storm spotter in the Tulsa, OK area. Not a storm chaser, I’m not that adventurous. Back in the days when CB’ers had to be licensed, I was KRN4938, and yes that was a very long time ago.

        Been so long, I forgot.. but yes, I had one of those things too

  • Deplorable B Woodman

    I hope that microwave emitter is shielded in all the right directions. Otherwise ‘Toly won’t be making any more babies.

    • KenH

      FLK’s as the cruel phrase goes… 🙂

  • Deplorable B Woodman

    I wonder if a microwave emitter would have any effect on illegals who are used to being out in the sun (a massive source of broadband radiation) all day?

    • JSStryker

      With a tight enough focus on the beams it will affect anyone along its path.

    • MasterDiver

      Like pouring boiling water on your suntan.

      Zar Belk!

      Narrow focused MW emissions= World’s Worst Migraine, just for starters.

      God help any who are toking, snorting, etc. Cross drugs with neurologic effects with MW and it’s Magical Mystery Tour time.

      “SPLURVV-YARRRFF, GONG, GONG, WOOOK! VLEAAHHH!!!” will seem to the one “experiencing” same like a perfectly reasonable answer to practically anything.

      So will foaming at the mouth and falling over backward, for that matter.

      On the plus side, it’s unlikely that they’ll be able to sustain any violent action. They’ll be too busy trying to decide if they’re a dancing teapot or Dumbo.

  • ‘Toly and Naomi are quite the pair indeed. 😀

  • Pete231

    Three power levels on the emitter- 1) Defrost 2) Bake 3) Soylent Green…..

    • Pamela

      You can provide the drinks at the next DD BBQ

  • KenH

    Upgrade to Turbolasers, and now you’d be talking….

  • JohninMd.(Help!?!!)

    Cris, did you put a ‘Toly-bun in Naomi’s oven?

  • Z-man51

    Damn! If the congressional critter barn shindig hadn’t been cancelled they would’ve had a captive test group to experiment on. Wonder if prolonged exposure would have any beneficial effects on spinal column or gonad growth? Oh well, that we’ll never know.
    However, zapping the numerous illegals found trespassing on the DBD Ranch should provide the crew with plenty of hands on experience in which settings provide the greatest effects. Especially if the beam is tight enough to target the coyotes and drug traffickers and the formication (NOT fornication: look it up), nausea, diarrhea and sterility effects are great enough to have them looking for safer employment or routes.

    • Norm

      That sounds pediculous!

  • Bill G

    “Who ordered the Coyote, Extra-Crispy?”
    But I’d have thought Naomi would want him to be flying something with a Vulcan…

  • JCTPatriot

    It’s about time we saw some love among these maniacs.

    Not Eros, LOVE. Day By Day started out with two couples falling deeply in love and overcoming the obstacles of Socialist interference.

    Sanp-on, Craftsman or Matco tool chest? I made the Special Snowflake take her Christmas money when she was ten and buy her own tools. Sears was a treasure trove of after holiday sales back then. Still $500 didn’t make that large of a pile. When she was done deciding, I noticed a scratch and dent 10 drawer roller, Dad paid for that. Spent the rest of the day unwrapping and organizing, better than Christmas.

    By the way the Special Snowflake will graduate from Auburn University this May as the Samuel Ginn College of Engineering Engineering Student of the Year. You have to start them young.

    • John D. Egbert

      Congratulations to Special Snowflake. She should be able to write a very good ticket just about anywhere. BTW, is she, perchance, a redhead?

    • Southpaw

      This means, for the next 35-40 years, your ambitious tot will be gainfully employed, paying taxes, working in the private sector, and perhaps one day raising a family. A reflection on her father as well, no doubt. Rachel Maddow will never speak of her except as a traitor to her gender, but choices have consequences.

    • Arkelk

      Congratulations to Special Snowflake for her achievement, and to you and your wife for raising such a sensible (and talented) citizen.

    • SheepDog

      My youngest son is finishing his Doctorate at Auburn this Dec. Definitely good kids, both of them. Congratulations to you and your

        Special Snowflake goes off to Law School at Alabama in the fall. She was awarded the Dean’s Scholarship which is a full ride. I think she wants to rule the world as her skill sets would scare most SJW’s. She can shoot (left handed), gut and section a deer, design and build a car (Formula SAE Team Lead). I also taught her to cook. I think the future is in good hands as she is not the only one out there like her. We just have to make sure that there is an is for her to improve for future generations.

    That was supposed to be “Snap-on.”

      So what the hell am I supposed to do with this set of shiny Sanp-on tools that came into the pawn shop? Wait a minute…”made in Taiwan”. Oh. Better not trust the knuckles to them thangs. 😉

      Congrats to daughter, and to Dad. I know that wasn’t easy getting her to this point, but worth every minute and every nickel.

      BTW, if that’s an earlier “better-grade” Craftsman box it compares favorably to those astronomically priced Snap-On’s. I love the look and feel of Snap-On tools but I didn’t retail them at the pawn shop, I stacked them up until I had enough to run a dozen or so flea-bay auctions starting at a penny and watched the feeding frenzy…$300 for a small 1/4 drive socket set…I couldn’t charge my walk-ins that much and look them in the eye when I knew that for all practical purposes the Craftsman set with more pieces at $50 was all they needed.

      Craftsman, DieHard, Kenmore, all those iconic Sears names I grew up with have been sold off now…don’t know what the new owners will do with them. Of course Sears itself is soon to fade into oblivion. Sad.

  • Pamela

    Looks like it’s going to be a hot time out in the hinterlands on the ranch and somebody will be singing the blues for sure. Talk about shaving them dry.

  • Steve

    Coming soon to a ranch near you: Coyotes with wire mesh screens …
