I think there are laws governing carrying a fully auto weapon inside a bunny suit. Actually I know there are, but I am packing in that pic anyway.

Waterskiing is good fun too. This was actually taken by a friend. I am driving the boat.

I have some hobbies, but I'd have to scan some pictures. Off the top of my head, I love taking scenery pictures and have been wanting an SLR for awhile. I've posted most of these before, but I'll do it again.

It's not a Mauser, it's a Karabiner 98K with a ZF-4 Scope.

It's pretty much the same thing as the Mauser G98, but with different iron sights and a better stock.

The thing is pretty sweet, but the dang scope won't let me load a clip, I have to insert each round individually, and it's slow.

Thats the german name for the mauser. The Nazi sniper model. My great uncle took one home from WW2 and had it sporterized. He uses it to hunt deer. And you are correct, you certainly can't use strippers on a scoped rifle with a fixed magazine.

Mauser is the last name of the German who developed the rifle in 1898, Paul Mauser. The K98 (Karabiner), is a shortened version of the G98 (Gewehr).

Not my boat pictured, but I owned and raced a Cal 20 just like it for years. Boatless right now until the kids get bigger. I do have a Dolphin Sr. sitting in the back yard.

My daughters are getting at an age that my wife and I can finally get back to doing a lot of the activities we put on the shelf since they were born. Just yesterday we went out and got them skates. Today we went ice skating at our local park.

I have to say, my girls took to this really, really well.

In a few weeks we're taking them skiing.

Guess it has to read "FOOSTER" if I want the beer. But I can get a custom "STELLA" for the front.

Hm. If "FOOSTER" is already taken, gbcb, can I have "LUVMYFOO" and still get the beer? <looking expectantly, chewing on lower lip>
