"He went on two legs, wore clothes and was a human being, but nevertheless he was in reality a wolf of the Steppes. He had learned a good deal . . . and was a fairly clever fellow.

A man fires a rifle for many years, and he goes to war. And afterward he turns the rifle in at the armory, and he believes he's finished with the rifle. But no matter what else he might do with his hands - love a woman, build a house, change his son's diaper - his hands remember the rifle.

Had an old buddy we all called Gizmo. He was a true master of duct tape. He taped his screen door back on after the wind took it off. It actually worked for some time.

I once blew a U joint(rear) on a borrowed extended full size Dodge van on I75 and duct taped the U joint back into the yoke in the rear end and drove to the next exit, along the birm of the road. A LEO pulled me over and when I told him my delima he followed me to exit.
