    Default Rolling Dead Man. We only need one Walking one.

    My tale of whoa, or possible whoa in about 2 hours.

    Last year or so I've become fond of the old Mossberg 22's in all their varieties and models. I have 4 now I think, and every one has turned out to be a gem, very accurate and the last one had some incredible wood under the factory finish.

    Well I been watching an auction site pretty regular and had about 8 on the watch list.

    Wife went with a girlfriend to Mexico so I guess I threw caution to the wind. I usually don't bid on more than one until I know if I won or lost one, then I'll pick up on the next one. I usually get sniped at the last moment anyhow but at least they have the 15 minute rule if I want it bad enough.

    Well with less than 2 hours to go, I'm winning not one but two. Different models and both very nice. One pretty cheap, the other not so much but it's completely complete and not missing anything. I'm happy with both.

    BUT I didnt plan for both. We'll see how it shakes out. I'm safe till next Sunday when my financial adviser gets home.
    Then......well it might not be pretty.

    Well, if you do end up winning both, that gives you a week to pick up a paper route or maybe mow some lawns or flip hamburgers before the boss gets home. Pretty sure you can make some big $$$ in the week you have left.

    If not, been real nice knowing you!

    Well I got out bid on the lesser one, damn nice rifle and I wanted it bad but I let it go. I just moments ago won the 100% complete one.
    Done deal.
    I think I might live but it's only the first day of my legal separation, (we're more than 300 miles apart) so the week definitely ain't over yet.

    I'll post some pics of this beauty when it arrives.

    Is she doing a Thelma and Louise thing? If so, go buy another Mossy.

    Thank you.

    At last report he was playing easy rider down your way. Hope he doesn't run into the back of his wife while ogling bikini's again.

    Just explain to her you have a medical condition and maybe she will go easy on you..
