treeslicer: Well, shoot! It was worth a try. (rofl) Apr 12, 2021 2:40:29 GMT
christain: I gottaneedtawannahave (my wife's talk, NOT mine) a nice set of plate gauntlets, but they don't give those things away. I finally got a pair of sabatons (foot armor) and had to send the company a blank check and a sample of DNA. (rofl) Apr 12, 2021 0:42:06 GMT
christain: treeslicer---I don't have a 'nihonto', unless you count a great-sword, dagger, and a shield. Oh....and three sets of armor...maille, darkened plate, and polished plate. Matter of fact, I'll be getting more armor real soon. 8-) Apr 12, 2021 0:31:25 GMT
christain: Djinnja----What do you need to complete your armour? Ask me---I may just have it and be willing to sell. Apr 12, 2021 0:23:45 GMT
treeslicer: It's not senility. Your nihonto are infested with fox spirits. Send me your swords, and I'll take care of it for you. :D Apr 9, 2021 7:28:16 GMT *
christain: Disappearing swords? This would be a game-changer for sure. (rofl) Apr 8, 2021 22:29:12 GMT
christain: I'm getting old and senile. I found two empty sword scabbards in my 'dressing room'. I say to myself---"Where the heck are they????" I looked under the bed. Nope. I looked in every room in the house. Nope. Went back to my room and there they were. :o ??? Apr 8, 2021 22:17:12 GMT

Brother Nathaniel: Markus, I would love to see your thoughts on "Custer's Revenge". Over. Apr 8, 2021 17:23:34 GMT
bruntson: Beef and Bourbon, say no more. I'm heading over. Apr 7, 2021 19:27:41 GMT
christain: Inject the bourbon with a meat syringe and get to smokin'. (The ham, that is. (rofl))....McM Apr 6, 2021 20:03:13 GMT *
christain: Or maybe a big ol' brisket on the smoker with my special bourbon/garlic/onion injection., Put about a half cup of your favorite bourbon in a jar, chop and smash the garlic,slice the onion. Lid the jar and refrigerate for a day or two. Apr 6, 2021 19:50:29 GMT *
christain: Sounds great. May do that for July 4th. I never met a ham I didn't like! :D Apr 6, 2021 19:17:58 GMT
alientude: My wife did a ham with the glaze in this recipe: Best ham we've ever had. Apr 5, 2021 2:25:31 GMT
christain: Happy Easter to you and yours also, Brother Nat. I had the Easter Bunny hide an egg in your yard with the SBG logo on it. If you find it, it contains a gift certificate from KOA for $10,000. Happy hunting! (rofl) Apr 4, 2021 22:03:22 GMT
christain: Does it really matter? I'll be eating ham for a week, then use the bone to throw into a pot of beans. That, and a big skillet full of cornbread....happy man here. :D Apr 4, 2021 21:57:16 GMT
AndiTheBarvarian: What was said after "huge ham"? Apr 4, 2021 21:01:22 GMT
Brother Nathaniel: Christain my old friend, Happy Easter! Apr 4, 2021 20:22:14 GMT
christain: My wife has a huge ham cooked up, along with potato salad, baked beans, and yeast rolls...along with a strawberry cake and a buttermilk pie. Buttermilk pie may sound gross to some, but don't knock it 'till you try it. ;) Apr 4, 2021 20:10:39 GMT
christain: Happy Easter, everyone. I hope you are all safe with family and friends. Hope everyone has a good meal and maybe a few drinks. Great weather to be outside here in E.Texas, so an outdoor meal would be great. Apr 4, 2021 20:05:59 GMT
