“Shoveling sand against an incoming tide” reminds me of being assigned to moat dredging duty by my nieces, building sandcastles on a tropical beach . Great sport, but of course futile.

Great mental image on this January evening surrounded by so much snow here in Canada’s North

My punctuation peeve = .25-‘06 or .30-‘06 ‘06 is obviously a contraction of 1906,
Also , as a corrolary, why isn’t .270 Win known as .270-‘03, and similarly .280 Rem as .28-‘03 ??

But objecting to any of this is like shoveling sand against an incoming tide.


Not to mention spilling and those unnecessary little jots called punctuation smile


Don't forget those pesky paragraphs, or the lack thereof!

As long as we're listing annoyances, using "They-Them" plural pronoun when referring to a single misguided individual.

It's interesting to hear all the southernisms I've been introduced to, here in N.C.

People are crazy but I agree, 3x9x40 is annoying.

I always just thought that if I can figure out what you're saying, it doesn't really matter to me. I personally have bigger things to worry about.


If it looks good, you'll see it
If it sounds good, you'll hear it
If it's marketed right, you'll buy it
But...If it's real, you'll feel it

I worked for a lady that would end every argumentative comment she made with “Ain’t that right Bob” Usually an exclamation but sometimes a question.

Was talking to the head of the gun department at a local sporting goods store one day, and he was once baffled by some guy who asked if they had any "Eye Mister" gun powder--which turned out to be IMR. Another guy asked for "Hogadun" powder.

Some of these will get me,
But then I remember,
Being far from perfect, I make mistakes also.
