All in the Family featured the curmudgeonly Archie Bunker. Archie was television’s most famous grouch, blunt, blustering, straightforward and untouched by the PC crowd. He was the archetype of the conservative male. Michael desprately tried to reeducate him, but he persisted in his breviloquence.

Looking back at the last 40 years, we realize: ARCHIE WAS RIGHT!


First Time

There was a gun show this weekend. So I took Res Jr. The little guy loved it.  He got to see guns and every table had a new favorite. It was an above average show for our neck of the woods and there was a lot more there than just guns.  We saw several large racks including a find were a whitetail and a mule deer broke each others necks fighting for dominance.  There were several big horn sheep as well as a grizzly and of course lots of buffalo hides.  To my surprise there was a number of African game examples as well, including a giraffe skull, water buffalo, rhinoceros horns, and elephant feet.  All in all a good show.  On the gun front there were a couple of class 3 tables as well as an excellent example of a broom-handled Mauser.  Of course we had a great number of western arms some of which were from the 1870's.  I didn't buy anything but we had a great time just looking at stuff.  When Res Jr spotted a table with pink and purple handguns he thought of his mom and sister.  He's considerate like that.  He wanted me to buy one of each for them so they could have some guns too.
