    Time for some music to celebrate the “religious holiday”

    RIP,Bobby Womack

    • I thought for a while that Womack had written this song, which I first heard on Eric Clapton’s Unplugged CD and loved it. Turns out, it’s a Jimmy Cox song that Bessie Smith made famous a long time ago, and that Derek and the Dominos (Eric Clapton’s group), in 1970, actually were the ones who made it popular again. But it’s been covered by a lot of artists, including Womack in 1973.

      ‘I’ve told him that when we are back in the White House, he’ll have to behave’: Hillary Clinton jokes about Bill’s philandering and talks up a presidential run as MORE than a maybe

      The former secretary of state has made her peace with Bill Clinton’s bed-hopping, according to Ed Klein’s latest tell-all book
      At a boozy dinner with friends in 2013 she allegedly rattled off a list of famous women her husband had been with
      ‘This guy is unstoppable,’ she said in Klein’s account

      Even tales of exploits of the former ‘first cheater’ have garnered little notice.

      According to Klein, Hillary told friends that Bill is ‘having another of his middle-age crises.’ And she doesn’t seem to mind.

      I remember from her first ghost-written piece of trash that she did the audio version for:
      when she first heard of Monica:”I could barely breathe.”

    Finally sorted my vacation photos from Spain:

      Don’t worry Grunt. Barry’s too busy playing golf, using the ball washer and stuff.

        • barnslayer says:

          BTW, did you ever get those stripper clips etc?

          • Not for the .308 yet, but all the .223 is on clips which load nicely into the mags using the spoons. Thanks for the links for those clips! I just need to get those ordered. Seems I’m wasting too much time working and writing stupid posts instead of focusing on what’s important!

            Hey, that reminds me. I still haven’t cycled your M1A or had the gas tube open. Did you say you left excess oil in there? Or did that get cleaned out? No problem either way. Just curious.

            • barnslayer says:

              I think I left a bit more in there than usual since I didn’t know when it was getting to you. Just being overcautious. At least I didn’t coat it in cosmoline. I’d give it a quick wipe down before shooting it. The valve screw should be in the vertical (perpendicular to the barrel) position for the gas to cycle the next round.

              Here’s an overly thorough video on the subject. Lots of steps won’t be needed for now.

    Heavy rains and lightening? I hope Sister Shalini, the little one, and her family is okay.

    “The 12-story apartment structure the workers were building collapsed late Saturday while heavy rains and lightning were pounding the outskirts of Chennai, the capital of southern Tamil Nadu state. Police said 26 construction workers had been pulled out so far and the search was continuing for more than a dozen others…”

    2 buildings topple in India, killing at least 19

    • That’s not good. She’s only a few days from her due date. I’m sure the heavy rains could hinder her getting to the hospital or the power situation. Prayers for you sister Shal! Let us know if you can, but we’re with you in spirit!
