Old and not so old pictures...

2 posts in this topic

Well I got this new scanner and i'll be playing with and putting up some photos. I have some neat old pictures, alot I cant post as they are "stringer" shots or poor backrounds. I digress though as I have alot that are ok. I'll be adding more every few days or so.

Heres tonights 2am insomniac installment...

Circa roughly 1960. Tank and his father with a coupla bucks. Tank was about 16 at the time. The photo tells a neat story. My grandfather shot the buck and it took off crashing away. He didnt go far but when he got over to him the deer had no horns! He back-tracked a bit and found both sides. If you look carefully you can see hes holding the horns on the wrong sides for the pict...

Not only did he find both antlers along the way but the best part is they had a camera and the foresight to at least take a picture of that. We just never even bothered to take pictures of so many great fishing and hunting days as I was growing up and now with digital cameras it's so much easier. I have some older photos but like yours they are mostly stringer shots. Looking forward to some more!

    • i think you have to put it over the limb and shimmy to the trunk by looping it through itself with  the help of the pole. but your right scoot I am confused too. I normally attch my to the trunk.
    • If the economy heats up, it gets down to a choice between rampant inflation or high interest rates.  The solution for the inflation of the 1970s  was to jack interest rates up into the teens.     What would interest payments be on $20+ trillion at 8 or 10 percent?  Or 12 or 14 percent?          
    • Which will lead to hyperinflation.   What will that look like? Well, we can try to print money like Del suggests but the evidence is that printing more money can actually make more problems.   http://www.foxnews.com/world/2017/01/18/hyperinflation-renders-venezuela-nation-broke-millionaires.html    
    • Since Bulleit was mentioned so much, I thought I'd check for it tonight when I went to get my standards.  With all the positive reviews I went to scanning the top shelf right away.  I didn't find it till I got a little lower.  I can say I was a little surprised to see it priced at $24.   What is it that everyone likes about it?  I'm curious now.  I wasn't curious enough to add it to the tab though.   By the way, Johnnie Walker Platinum and Blue Label took top honors in the price category at $99 and $209 per bottle respectively.
    • Debt to GDP at the current levels is not much of a problem if you assume interest rates will remain low and static, but there is no reason to believe they will, considering they are presently considerably lower than average historical levels.   You fail to account for any rise in interest rates in your calculations, and that is the primary reason 100 percent debt to GDP is not prudent financial policy.    
    • T   Me too.  They get the papers all soggy and hard to light.
