Some goings on at Casa De Garabaldi

 I have been busy and i will interspace my article with pictures, because I love pictures...:)

   I bought a new light to replace the light over the Garage that started suffering Epileptic seizures, basically when the light would come in, it would flicker haphazardly and my son complained that if he had epilepsy, it would cause a seizure.  I tend to agree, it was just a matter of finding a light that I liked. and I found one...so I set up the ladder..

     The Light looked a bit different so I had to get a smaller screw driver to attach the leads to the terminal blocks.....something unusual.

                                      Yep, got the smaller Screwdriver

    I can tell I installed the other Light Fixture, I  had used Zip ties to secure the wires together so the caps would stay secured and not loosen.

Started securing cables to the terminal blocks then I would zip tie them together to prevent them from loosening, I then tucked everything neatly together and closed it up and climbed down the ladder and closed the circuit breaker and flipped the switch...

   Yep it worked!  I then put all my tools away and put the ladder away.

   The Next day My son and I went to Birmingham Alabama for the scrimmage game between Atlanta United and Legion FC, the Birmingham Soccer team.  It was a good game, and the ticket prices were not bad, and there were a lot of Atlanta fans in attendance.

   I enjoyed the game and being outside and we discovered something on the way to Birmingham...

  You Betcha, Right outside Birmingham and we stopped afterwards for gas and I picked up several "Brisket" sandwiches and saw some ribs and seasonings I thought about trying out.

and for the Beef...

    And it wouldn't be a party unless there was a .

Bass Pro across the street, and unfortunately their ammo supply was picked over but still it was neat to look around.

   We then hit the road back to the ATL.

   I then spent several days working on the riding mower, I considered Tannonite a few times before I got the rider repaired,  between a bad cell on the battery and loose wires in the relay and starter.

I keep the older mower because it is built like a tractor, not a lawnmower. All metal, no plastic.

After World War II, Yugoslavia took the design of the 98k rifle series and produced its own domestic variant with minor modifications. Although very similar in external appearance, many of the parts of the Yugoslav and German rifles are not interchangeable, especially the bolt and related action parts. M48s are usually distinguished from the 98k by the top handguard, which extends behind the rear sight and ends just in front of the receiver ring, although this feature exists on other models as well. The M48 was designed with a stock similar to the 98k, but it has a shorter intermediate-length action and receiver, as does the similar M24 series Mauser. The M24 series Mausers were built from prewar Yugoslav Model 24 Mausers and then refurbished with newer Belgian parts, and usually have straight bolts, while the M48s have curved bolts. Most M48 stocks are made from thicker Elm or Beech wood and have a thick stainless steel butt plate at the rear of the stock. The M24/47 stocks are mostly made of thinner Walnut or Beech wood and do not have a milled stainless steel "cupped" butt plate. The M48 was also designed to remove the follower from stopping the bolt from closing when the magazine is empty. M48's are regarded as a military surplus firearm and can be collected in the United States, Canada and Australia at a generally cheap price due to the plentiful numbers recently imported from Europe, most of which had never been used in combat.
     The Rifle needs some TLC and as soon as I brought it home I called the purveyor of all firearms Old NFO himself and told him what I had and he told me to use "Linseed Oil" for the wood to bring the Luster back and he suggested that I harang our favorite "Merchant of Death" for ideas on bring back the metalwork without wiping out the patina on the metal.

And finally the "Wet Dream" of any Leftist out there, this will be the reality if they are successful in implementing the "Chinese Social Score"" here in the United States.  I had published this back in 2018.
   I can see this happening in the near future.


  1. Nice find on the rifle! And road trips, even if short, are good!

    1. Hey Old NFO;

      Yeah it was a nice find, but I gotta do some work on it and I will this week.
