    On a related note, for anyone who has an Amazon Video account I recommend Thud Pilots. It's a good documentary on the F-105 and the pilots who flew them over Vietnam.

    No. We fought on Hill 67 so we could take it, give it up, and then take it again a few months later. Also, so we could get inexpensive shirts and camo hunting gear ...

    LOL ... I've only had two aluminum calls --one box and one pot---and the box sounded like shit. It was one of the first ones to come out, in graphite and acrylic, so maybe they've gotten better. LOL ...I conditioned it by rubbing it with river rock ...At least I assume it got rubbed by river rock after I chunked it into the Bullpasture River. I was scouting in anticipation for some of you knuckleheads coming to hunt forest chickens, deer and bear in the big woods for the Blue-Gray Bow Hunt and things weren't going so well ---- The turkeys weren't responding, and neither were any of you ... LOL If you and I ever hunt together, I'll show you a trick where you rub some cooking oil or BBQ/brats/hamburger grease on your slates ... Don't try it til I get out there, though ... I just scratch up my aluminum pot with sandpaper. I use a Dobie on slate calls and a stone or sandpaper on glass and crystal. Sandpaper will work on slate calls, too, but I try not to use sandpaper on slate for fear of taking off too much from a favorite call.

    Oh, and I'd almost forgotten that it was also time to take the copa (the so-called "money muscle" cut from a pork shoulder) out of the fridge where it's been curing in a mix of cure #1, herbs and spices for the past 2 weeks, give it a good coating of smoked paprika... ...and seal it in an "Umai Dry" bag (https://umaidry.com/) so it can go back into the fridge for 1-2 months to dry cure into capicola (aka "capocollo", "coppa", "gabagool", et al). Hopefully it will turn out something like this... Cue Carly Simon's Anticipation.

    You'll be singing a different tune when the machines take over and I'm spared a life of slavery in the copper mines because one of our overlords is sweet on me. But, in the meantime... The one constant at breakfast in Ireland at the B&B we stayed at...apart from everything being delicious...was the fresh-baked brown soda bread (aka simply "brown bread") that our hostess put on the table every morning. I grew quite fond of it, as well as the full Irish breakfast, and have been craving some ever since we came back. Since our local eateries have thus far ignored my pleas to begin serving fresh-baked brown bread I resolved to make my own. Working 4 day weeks leaves me with most Fridays to putter around the house by myself when I don't have chores that need tending to, so I used this morning to scratch this particular gustatory itch. Although brown bread is like Ireland's version of gumbo in that if you ask 50 different little old Irish ladies how to make it, you'll get 100 slightly different answers. Plus, there's nearly endless possibilities for tweaks and texture/flavor enhancing add-ons. But at it's most basic it's ridiculously simple, consisting of coarse wholemeal (that's "whole wheat" in Yank-speak) flour, some all-purpose flour (or not...that's one of the variants), baking soda, buttermilk, salt, butter (or oil) and maybe an egg or two. There's no kneading or proofing, as it's a no-yeast bread that uses the carbon dioxide produced by the combination of baking soda and the acidic buttermilk as a rising agent. Everything just gets mixed together in a bowl which, depending on your flour-to-liquid ratios, produced either a very loose and wet dough that's poured into a loaf pan, or a tighter, drier one that is formed into a circular blob on a baking sheet. I went with a 2:1 ratio of whole wheat to all-purpose flours, went with olive oil instead of butter, opted to use an egg, added a little wheat germ for extra fiber and texture and, since I didn't have any buttermilk on hand, mixed some yogurt (also homemade) into some milk to produce the same effect. I also added 1 Tbsp of honey. The amounts of stuff I used resulted in a dough that was nearer the wet-and-loose end of the spectrum, so I went the loaf pan route. Extra coarse whole wheat flour proved a challenge to find locally, so for added authenticity I had Jeff Bezos send me a bag of actual Irish wholemeal (delivered in 1 day....living near 2 Amazon fulfillment centers rocks): It went into a 400F oven for 45 minutes and then spent another 30 minutes cooling on a rack. This was the result: Slathered in some Kerrygold butter it's pretty much exactly as I remember it. I lightly toasted a couple slices and substituted them for the whole wheat toast that usually accompanies my weekend bacon-and-eggs. The result was not a full Irish breakfast (more like a half-assed one), but it's a start. Next, I think I'll try making some Irish bacon, which is cured and smoked pork loin rather than belly. Beans, tomatoes and mushrooms will be easy, but the black and white puddings might prove to be a challenge. Oh well, one step at a time.

    I have some group pics, but they're on another computer. It will take me some time to get to it. I think our best bet is for someone to roust Dave, or even Alex. Alex is still around, right? Did they ever figure out what the virus was or how he got it? I think you're right, Billy. You could never meet a nicer guy than Roy. Just the fact that he put up with us goobers was one sign, but one of several things that made a big impression on me was that somehow he knew I would be interested in a QDMA conference he was going to and got me all the info. He loved that stuff. I always regretted that I didn't make a bigger effort to go, but even more so now.

    Roy was the man that owned the ranch where we held the Texas pig hunts, he charged us nothing and went out of his way to see that we had a great hunt, he was in his 50's and caught a viral infection and couldn't beat it, it fought for about three weeks before he died. He was a strong healthy man before he caught the infection, it took him down fast. I've never met a nicer more generous person in m life. It's such a shame. I don't remember how to put up pics on here, maybe Dave, Jon, or someone who hunted there could put some up.
