Nice job on the guard. It looks much more substantial than what it had when it was new!
Still trying to be the man my dog thinks I am.

Nice work digr.

The question isn't who is going to let me; it's who is going to stop me.

Nice thoughts on using the cap end of a bottle cap. Makes it look slick and nice.

Well done Sir. Well done.
God, if you would grant me one request through Prayer, please help me be the Man my Dog thinks I am. Please.

I never thought I'd live long enough to become a grumpy old bastard. Here I am, killing it!
