Everything Else / Re: Levi Strauss - May You Come Apart at the Seams!

Well actually I buy my pants and most of what I wear from Duluth Trading Company.
Many, many, many years ago I wore Levi's.
Cause it was cool man!

Well, that's OK...
I've never liked Levi's jeans anyway.
In fact, I've never knowingly bought any Levi Strauss products, ever.

When I needed jeans, I wore Wranglers, and (mostly) Roebucks, mostly because they fit better...and mostly because they were cheaper, too.

I once interviewed with the head of the leather-clothing-and-accessories division of Levi's.
I didn't get the job because I told him that thought that his very expensive Eames chair was upholstered in sub-standard, artificial-looking pseudo-leather.
He didn't like that at all.

Well just of a matter of input into this stream of conversation.
I am one of those folks that helped out Old Smith-Wesson . . . . .

One of the things I found when I first turned 80 was that I had to slow down.
My eyes were not reacting fast enough and it was taking a tad linger to get that sight picture.

So I started focusing on accuracy only and just plain took the time I needed to get that sight picture.
The speed that I had built in took care of itself.
Now I feel much better at matches cause I am getting the hits and of course my time is slow.
But the satisfaction as the scorers call out zero on the misses just makes me feel that much better.

I will never get back the speed that I had . . . . .
The body keeps telling me that, but at least I am hitting what I am shooting at a heck of a lot more.
It took a while and this week I turn 82 and am looking forward to the match next week.
I even went out and bought a new gun for next year.
I got a Smith-Wesson 625 revolver and getting my brass back is a lot easier with a moon clip holding the 6 rounds all together.
Plus I started out, way back when, with a revolver . . . . so its kinda like gone full circle.
Plus I am still shooting 45 ACP . . . . . my favorite cartridge and I have a bunch of them already reloaded.

In a Democracy, people elect officials to control the people who cannot govern themselves. In a Republic, people elect officials to represent the people who can govern themselves.

To Democrats, it is always about the "Cause" or the "Good of the People" or to "Protect the Children." Regardless, it is always about control.
