    Well, I'm old. And my ass has been acquainted with a great many barstools. The line is actually just, "$50, same as in town Father." But I thought that would sound uber creepy to anyone who wasn't familiar with the joke.

    In some cases the lawyer(s) can face fines, penalties and/or sanctions for improper suits. I assume this is state-by-state, although you'd think the ABA or other national groups interested in ethics and standards could be pressed to address loose-cannon lawyers in states that let them run wild.

    "Daniels" is 100% liable for the whole thing. CPL ("Creepy Porn Lawyer") has no liability in this case. Or are you're referring to his mountain of debt and other assorted financials problems?

    BC--- Link's not working. I'd love to see the breakdown of fines and sanctions on Daniels vs. her lawyer. The article I saw yesterday didn't mention it either. I suppose it's entirely possible the legal team walks away scot-free.

    ...with another of their ingenious gun "buy-backs". Once you get past the hilarity of their $500 offer for "Full-automatic weapons" you find that they're also offering $25 each for "Hi-cap magazines". I'm half tempted to load up on a few cases of $7 steel AR-15 mags and take a road trip. https://www.wbaltv.com/article/baltimore-police-gun-buyback-offers-cash-for-firearms/25476371

    A federal judge on Tuesday ordered porn star Stormy Daniels to pay President Donald Trump more than $292,000 in attorneys' fees and another $1,000 in sanctions in connection with her dismissed defamation suit against Trump. That was much less than the nearly $800,000 in legal fees and sanctions that Trump's lawyer Charles Harder asked for earlier this month in U.S. District Court in Los Angeles. But Harder in a statement Tuesday said that Daniels was ordered to pay amount to 75 percent of Trump's legal fees. And he crowed that the $1,000 in sanctions are for her filing "meritless" defamation action. That defamation suit came in response to a Trump tweet that all but called Daniels for claiming she was menaced by a man seeking to keep her quiet about a sexual tryst with the president. "The court's order, along with the court's prior order dismissing Stormy Daniels' defamation case against the President, together constitute a total victory for the President, and a total defeat for Stormy Daniels in this case." https://www.cnbc.com/2018/12/11/judg...neys-fees.html Completely unrelated, but last night a squadron of aliens landed on my lawn. We barbecued some ribs, drank a few cold ones and talked about man, the galaxy and the Green Bay Packers. Apparently they are big fans. I know right?

    We can't have that. Especially after the post has run it's course and the OP has gotten the information they need. We must be vigilant.

    No, they generally mean "Delaware...all of it". The square mileage and distances involved here was the thing that was most difficult to get the locals we chatted with in Ireland and Scotland to grasp. (Well, that and our summer time temperatures.) A friendly young woman who was a native staying at our B&B in Ireland (she was in town hosting a booth at a local multi-day festival) was giving us some tips on things to do and see. When she said of one of the destinations, "It's a wonderful sight, but it is an hour-and-a-half drive from here" we couldn't help but chuckle and tell her it takes us that long to get from our house to the other side of the Dallas/Ft. Worth metroplex doing 70+ MPH on highways. And that's mighty generous, Bob. He and I have talked about taking a vacation sometime and doing one of the Bourbon Trail tours in Kentucky. If we ever manage to get around to doing that it might be fun to make it an on-the-way-to-hunting-in-Virginia thing, picking up a goody or two to bring with us in the process (I mean, I'd hate to show up empty-handed.)

    hi·jack /ˈhīˌjak/ verb 1. illegal seizure of a legitimate online forum thread forcing it to go to a different destination or use it for one's own purposes. "he hijacked the thread with stupid jokes, images, nonsensical verbiage and back slapping buddy banter having nothing at all to do with the original post thus robbing others of discourse and commentary." The man said he couldn't hunt because of the weather which forced him into the netherworld of homemade noodles. That's some serious stuff right there.

    Aye laddie, the very crux of the matter. I truly understand. I was shocked to learn this some years back. But then again, when someone in Texas says "ranch" they don't mean a few hundred acres like where I come from. I've extended an invite already which includes you and your son. Bring it. I'll show you around some mighty fine Blue Ridge hunting on public and private land.

    I've got boots that are good in the mud. What I don't have is the will to walk through muck that's often most of the way up my lower leg, especially with a > 100 lb carcass in tow. If I had access to something that was swampy AND was way above average in terms of game opportunities then I might be inclined to invest the money and effort into doing so. But none of the public lands around here are quite that stellar in quality. Honestly, most of my hunting is engaged in for the sheer enjoyment of being in cold quiet woods with the added benefit of the possibility of putting meat in the freezer if I'm vewy, vewy quiet, as well as the bonding time with my son when he's able to tag along. As you can see from that table, TX is terrible in terms of % of land available for public hunting. It's even worse when you consider the size of the state and how long it takes to get to the majority of the land that is available. Fortunately, it's somewhat made up for by the lengths of the hunting seasons. That comes to 7 months in all if you include the dove season opener the first weekend in September, and the ability to hunt hogs with rifles on public land through March. There's one good-sized unit where hogs can be archery hunted year-round, but it's a boggy area that becomes too warm and skeeter-infested (not to mention the cottonmouths) to want to be in by about mid-spring.

    Sounds like you need some Gore Tex and some Muck boots DP. Just reallocate some of the brown liquor budget. You don't hunt in the rain or you don't bow hunt in the rain? I am unconcerned what the weather is doing during gun season unless there is an ice storm which is where I draw the line. All it takes is one tree or limb falling on your head to ruin a hunt. I speak from experience. :wink Bow season? Whole 'nother story. If moderate-to-heavy rain is expected I might try to beat the weather timing wise but if it's gonna be an all out deluge for hours on end? Forgedda bout it. This hunt here (link below) at the Montezuma National Wildlife Refuge back in my old stomping grounds in Upstate NY was absolutely *ALL* in water or swampy land. Hunters line up for the 175 permits available each hunt day on a first-come, first-served basis. In other words, it's some of the best public/federal land hunting I've ever experienced. https://www.fws.gov/uploadedFiles/Region_5/NWRS/Central_Zone/Montezuma/Sections/PDFs/2018DEERHUNTREGULATIONS.pdf How does your state stack up with the availability of hunting land dedicated to public access? http://www.backcountrychronicles.com/public-hunting-land/

    The decision to try to do it myself happened every time I got the bill at my favorite ramen joint. Actually getting off my duff and doing it happened one day when I found I could buy decent (per reviews) instant noodles and soup base from Amazon so I could ease into the endeavor. I still haven't decided to go hardcore and make the broth from scratch (and I doubt I'd ever bother trying to make my own noodles). I might have to wait for the wife to find an excuse to be out of town for a weekend so I can get away with stinking the house up by boiling pork bones all day. I learned my lesson on that front the one time I made my shrimp stock indoors.

    It's not the falling rain itself that's a problem (though rain AND temperatures in the high 30s is somewhat less than appealing with no camo rain gear). Hell, I've fished in pouring rain and hunted in a blizzard, and not minded either. It's the cumulative effect it has on the ground where I hunt (which generally saturates quickly and drains poorly) when it's not only still raining (and is expected to continue all day), but has also been doing so for nearly 24 hours prior. Walking into the public land units I have access to is bad enough under those near-swamp-like conditions, but if I were to actually kill something larger than a rabbit then getting it out would be nigh impossible. ETA: What the East Texas Piney Woods I hunt look like after a good day of rain, followed by a couple days of drying out:
