  1. They called it the Staff House. Mother cleaned the old one for extra income when I was a baby. The huge cedar tree next to it was a Christmas tree for the mill family. They hung lights in it and we gave our list to Santa. The Staff House is now a bed and breakfast. All of the esprit d’corps is gone in the name of the bottom line. Potlatch had an a number one system——they had their own mechanics, their own road crew, etc. When they did a logging job, they built elaborate banking grounds, built roads, fixed fences and took very good care of the landowner. The corporate folks and rocket scientists ended all that. The Warren Mill is still very well run and clean as a pin. The people that make a career of it are well taken care of by today’s standards. Even though Dad took early retirement at age 59, he had a pension until he died. My stepmother still has his health benefits that Medicare doesn’t cover. For what it is worth, the land base in Warren, AR and Bradley County has been producing since 1919. They are just now starting to cut the hardwood and it is incredible. Before so many people started wanting to imitate Phil Robertson, we used to hammer Mallard Ducks in the flooded hardwoods of Ouachita river bottoms in South AR. Easy credit and Duck Dynasty took care of that.
  2. That was over 30 years ago. My father was a registered forester and did the timber procurement for Potlatch’s Southern Mill in Warren and the Paper Mill in Arkansas City for over 30 years. He took early retirement at 59 and went on his on for the last 14 years of his life.
  3. Bearden Lumber Company Bearden, AR Owned by Anthony Timberlands
  4. I ran an old 935, a 966 and a 988 in a Southern Pine Dimension Width Lumber Mill. The 935 was for clean up. The 966 and 988 were for unloading log trucks and feeding the in-feeds to the Band Saw Mill and the old Chip-n-Saw mill. Lots of power at your finger tips. We didn’t have a Gib Crane to unload the log trucks so you worked your ass off between the log yard and the mills.
  5. Spats, Did you get another pistol?
  6. This greets you as you approach the store on our mountain:
  7. No kidding, I remember when McDonald’s was decent. If nothing else, the fries were great. I have not been to one in the last five years that wasn’t terrible and most are filthy. The hamburgers are inedible.
  8. My German kin trace their ancestory back to 1873. My Polish cousins can go way back. They are Levites. My Maternal Grandfather had a surname that is sometimes Jewish and my Uncles grew up in the deep South where there were not many Jewish folks so they got as close as they could when it came to choosing mates. My Germanic Uncle is a Christ follower now. My Polish Uncle and my cousins are Reformed and observant. It’s a neat story. My Uncle whose family came from Munich got three brothers over hear right before the Shoa. The patriarch of the family was a Free Mason and used his connections to get it done and gave them his name. We grew up hearing their accounts of the Shoa. We had the 2nd Amendment thing figured out early on and firearms were always a part of our own culture. AOC is just pandering. Hopefully her audience is aware of how she truly feels about Israel.
  9. I love Glocks but I am very fond of the HKP30S manual safety pistol series. I also will only use rigid, kydex holsters. I also advise folks to avoid clothing with dangling strings, threads or synch cords as they will cause an ND.
  10. She needs to be very careful. My Mother had two sisters who married Ashkenazi Jews——one Uncle’s family came from Munich, Germany and one Uncle’s family came from Austro Hungary (Now Krackow Poland). If she is Jewish, she will be able to give is chapter and verse of her lineage. One thing is for sure: We all came from Adam.
  11. Glock 9mm’s don’t like weak ammo in many cases.
