RE: Col. Roy Abner Knight, Jr. came home today !

I watched the story on the news last night, brought a tear to my eyes. The entire airport came to a stop. I am guessing it was at Love Field in Dallas. People inside the terminal and all the ground personnel were watching the event unfold. His son gave an excellent interview, and made my perception of the American public and gratefulness for the sacrifice of some of our armed forces is still appreciated.

RE: 2019 Little League World Series

I would love to be there in person for the games, but scheduling and distance make it impossible. I enjoy going to baseball games in person, from T-ball to major league. Will try to catch some of the games on TV, enjoy and have a hot dog and diet coke for me....

RE: Change the date of Halloween...?

Change it, for the sake of sanity!!! It seems most schools, community organizations and most Churches have some type of Trick or Treat or Fall Festival type of event and most in our area plan these for a Friday or Saturday night. Kids don't care what night it is, they just know its time to dress up and collect the candy...….

Vietnam vets honor a brother 50 years later

Some of you may have read or seen on TV about 4 Vietnam vets honoring the memory of one of their brothers at his graveside 49 years after his death. These guys were members of the 2/3 Inf. Bn., 199th LIB. PFC Leonard Litzchse was only in country three months when he was KIA in April, 1970. I was also serving in the 199th but a different Battalion. PFC Litzchse and I had been in country the same length of time, but he must have made quite an impression on his platoon for some of them to come together and visit his family and give him the goodbye they did not have time to do back in 1970. I have often felt honored to serve in that unit with some of the best guys in the world. RIP brother Litzsche…..

RE: Upper, lower, and heater hose replacement

I took my 2004 Ford F250, V-10 in to the shop last month to get all the belts and hoses checked, just for my satisfaction. Fifteen years old, but only 87,000 miles I was feeling like you do, just time to check everything. Put it on the lift, checked all lines and fittings, connections and joints, and brake system. Drove out with just serpentine belt replaced, it was not cracked or broken but was real shiny and slick. I felt better after replacing it. Still, $600.00 does sound a tad high just to replace two hoses....

RE: New to me... UPDATE!!!

Ok, promised update. I fired up the Pit Boss yesterday to smoke/cook 12 Cornish hens. I loaded pellets in the hopper and per instructions set control on "smoke" setting. Placed the hens on the rack and they filled it up. I left it on smoke sitting for about 4 hours, the thermometer in the lid held steady at 200 degrees. I checked the temp of the meat and all of the chickens had internal temp of 140. I cracked the control knob up one setting and the meat hit 165 degrees internal in about an hour. Pulled them off and let them set til cool. Tender and moist, all were eaten or went home with family. Satisfied so far.....

RE: New to me... UPDATE!!!

Super Dave, mine will set on a open deck, I did buy the Pit Boss cover for it. Living here in Arkansas, humidity is a real problem, so I will empty my hopper between uses. No need to take chances and it just takes a couple of minutes. I assumed the temp gauge would be off, and the fire pit in the center of the grill would mean I would be rotating meat if I really load it to smoke. Twelve Cornish hens will be a good test.

RE: New to me... UPDATE!!!

blownstang, the owners manual for mine clearly states to empty hopper and run the anger to clear out any unused pellets. I will report back...

RE: New to me... UPDATE!!!

Bigred, bought mine at Walmart. Our store is one of the smaller stores, and I think they were just clearing out most of the outdoor/patio stuff to start making room for Fall and Christmas items. It was the last one they had in stock. They had three of the larger Copperhead model and a couple of the smaller 300's left in stock. You might check Walmart online they might be marked down there. Mine was $297.00 yesterday.... Big red, thanks for your service, I assume you served in Vietnam. Have a great Fourth of July!!!!!!

New to me... UPDATE!!!

OK, took the plunge and purchased a Pit Boss 700FB pellet grill/smoker yesterday. I have tried gas grills, have charcoal grill and smoker and have been interested in trying a pellet grill for a long time. I got the Pit Boss on sale, less than half the price of a Trager, and if I decide pellet cooking is not for me, I don't have a lot invested. I fired it up and did a good test burn, using the smoke setting and a flame/sear, high heat setting. I will do some real cooking tomorrow and then smoke about 12 Cornish hens Friday. We will see how everything turns out.....

RE: Tire plugs

Done properly, within the tread area, plugging works fine. Never had an issue with one.

RE: Who is ready for College baseball regionals and CWS

Well, the Hogs dropped the first game last night. It was a pitchers duel all the way. There was some great defensive plays along the way to support the pitching, when Flowera jumped up and caught the ball on the fence, you could feel air go out of the Razorbacks. Congrats to FL State and also Michigan for their wins. No one expected either team to make it to Omaha, but those boys showed they belong. Next up for Arkansas is Texas Tech Monday night, loser go home....

RE: Who is ready for College baseball regionals and CWS

Well, the CWS is set, and I am ready for some great games up and down the brackets. Arkansas has the task of playing the "Old Coach" in their first game. I wish Fl. State well, but in the losers bracket. Overall, I think Vanderbilt will be the one to beat in the finals. Either way, even if you just have a passing interest in baseball, these are the games to watch.

RE: Who is ready for College baseball regionals and CWS

Well, we survived the weekend! We had great seats, fans from every team were friendly, weather was no problem and some great baseball was played on the field. Now Arkansas has to play Ole Miss this weekend in a best two out of three to move on to Omaha. Ole Miss has had Arkansas number this year, hope we can pull it off. There were a lot of good games this weekend, I still can't believe UCLA is out of the playoffs, and the SEC has a chance to have four teams in the field of eight in Omaha.

RE: What are your yearly registration costs for your truck?

We live in Arkansas, vehicles pay a separate registration fee and Personal Property tax. Registration or Tag Renewal fee for my F-250 Ford truck is $3.75 per year. I get a discount for having a "Vietnam Veteran" tag. Regular renewal fee is around $29.00 per year. Arkansas does not require a vehicle inspection, used to but discontinued it in the late 90's. Wish they still required inspections, there is some real junk running the roads....

RE: Who is ready for College baseball regionals and CWS

RE: Who is ready for College baseball regionals and CWS

Monkey, I agree the announcers that ESPN used were terrible. The MU v. Vanderbilt Sunday was a great game, had to mute it several times while watching. Sometimes, depending on which ESPN is broadcasting, I listen to the radio while watching. The radio is a few seconds behind the TV, but announcers are better.
