Making the best of my "Extra"

I have been working a lot the last few weeks for a guy in the flooring business. He is overloaded this time of year and had a few BIG projects that he needed some help on and was good enough to offer me the work. The work is hard but the money is GOOD !! It's hard to call any money "extra" if you ask me, who ever has enough anyway let alone "extra". But at least this is over and above the normal for me so "extra" is ok with me as long as I have it. I wanted to make sure I put this money to good use and buy things that were needed and maybe even just wanted a little bit too.

I bought this 50 Cal. CVA Wolf 209 Magnum Break - Action Muzzle Loader today at Walmart. $217.00, I know that this is not what one would call a Survival gun by any means but it will put meat on the table when the time comes. Not the most practical of guns on the market but this is something that I "wanted" for some time now. I have pretty well busted my but for this money and I thought I should get something out of it that I wanted too. Shame on me...





On my every weekend trip to the local flea market I ran up on this Bear Bruin Compound Bow in really good condition. A crisp 20 dollar bill and I was the new owner. Once again, it will put meat on the table. Also makes a real good stealth weapon. This is a picture of what it looks like, got the pic off the web, family is gone this weekend with the camera. But you get the idea.



The Jeep will get a new round of rubber next week sometime and some new brake pads all around as well as shocks. Then she will be good to go. I have a few more projects lined up for the extra money but have to wait until I have more time. Been working some long hours, only 45 this week, 65 hours the week before. I think we have one more job that will last about a week and then the rush will be over for a while. May get a few more jobs as time goes by but just have to wait and see. I'll be glad to take the extra work and the extra money when ever it comes.

This is Bullseye... OUT !!!

Hi Bullseye,

Good to see you back :D

Something for yourself every now and then is not a bad thing. You deserved to treat yourself, you've been working hard :D

I'm glad to hear the Jeep will reap some of the benefits as well.

Take care my friend

Hugs~n~Love

A muzzle loader and a bow are good to have, especially if it extends your hunting season so you can fill your freezer.

Catman said...

Bullseye,

Good to hear from you, and its good to see that you were able to add to your armory.

Ken said...

...if yer not a bow nut,get the rig/string checked...i mean it Brother,you don't want it to break at full draw with a nocked arrow...or a cracked limb,all bad,bad,bad...

...and kudos to yer "front stuffer that takes it up the rear"...lol,you know what they say,"once you go black(powder)you never go back"...lmao

Bullseye said...

Felinae, thank ya much, good to be back. I have been working pretty hard so I guess I do deserve a little something when I can swing it. Thanks for the visit, always good to hear from you.

Bitmap, the way I look at it is that I can have at least 2 extra deer for the freezer this way. Not to bad a deal on either one either. Can't wait to use them some. Thanks for stopping by my friend.

Catman, thanks and you know how much I love toys that go Boom !! Even got one that don't make a saound. Gotta love it. Thanks bro.

Ken, very good advice for anyone buying a used Bow. Will be getting a new string and a good check up before I knock and arrow for sure. Thanks for the reminder.

And I can't wait to make some smoke with the Boom stick either. Guess you could say I'm back in black....LOL Always good to hear from you Brother. Stay safe.

Did it MY way said...

Bullseye said...

WTG on the new "Toys"

Bulls,
Having recently (semi) retired after 35 years as a flooring installer I can attest to your claim of busting your but.
In hireing new employees one of my first questions was "Can you learn to like pain"?
If you haven't bow hunted before you'll get addicted real quick.
Just to be out in the woods alone without the hoards you find during gun season,the siteing of so many other critters and that damned elusive 12 pointer teaseing you just out of range.
I whole heartedly agree with Ken's advice to the point of taking that bow to an archery shop and have them check it out. First thing to confirm is proper draw length.
Nothing worse than hours of waiting on stand only to miss or wound due to horseshit equipment.
Then practice till your shoulder feels like Ya been nailin' hard wood flooring all day.
Good luck in the woods!

Bullseye said...

SciFiChick, sorry your are having problems and I am trying to get this problem fixed once and for all. This site will be moving a the new .com soon and maybe all will be solved. Thanks for the visit.

Northwoods, 35 years??? and you are still alive??? LOL, the guy I am working for says that nobody likes to lay floor, there are some that will do it sometimes if you pay them enough but they still don't like to do it. I know this is true now. It's hard work.

I will be sure have the bow all checked out before use. Don't want to miss out on lunch with a bad shot due to equipment failure. Thanks for coming over.

Hi there!
I would like to burn a theme at here. There is such a thing, called HYIP, or High Yield Investment Program. It reminds of ponzy-like structure, but in rare cases one may happen to meet a company that really pays up to 2% daily not on invested money, but from real profits.

For several years , I earn money with the help of these programs.
I don't have problems with money now, but there are heights that must be conquered . I make 2G daily, and my first investment was 500 dollars only.
Right now, I'm very close at catching at last a guaranteed variant to make a sharp rise . Visit my blog to get additional info.
