I Would Like To Wish You All A Happy New Year...

..from the sooper sekrit bunker of The Feral Irishman.

I have decided to go on a vacation with blog buddy "BOILERDOC"

He has set up a nice "ITINERARY" that looks better than the cold and snow!

I will return when and if I get bored of the view.

All The Best,


(thanks Boilerdoc for doing all the heavy lifting)

I Would Like To Wish You All A Very Merry Christmas.........

Thank you to all that stop by this little corner of the interwebz. Another year comes to a close and the promise and hope of a better 2014 looms around the corner. Who knows what the future may bring?

I ask a quick favor of you that stop here. I thought it would be interesting if you would leave a comment naming the "State" or "Country" you are from.  I am humbled by how far this little hobby of mine has gone.

To make it easy I will shut off comment moderation ( I'll deal with the spammers later )

Boilerdoc* Seems To Think It's Sad That I Still Hold The Mannequin's Hands At The Mall...

 *comment on this >>> POST<<<

..What the hell else would you do if you were bored shitless while shopping?

I've just gotten much more selective.....

Oh Happy Christmas.

The lady in the bank drive thru is swearing at her kids

Loud enough for all of us to hear as well as those in

The bank     Oh happy times!


Cloudy, Gloomy, Cold Grey Day Yields Some Excitement.......

The weather here is low thirty's , freezing rain, overcast and grey.

 I was about three quarter's into my lunchtime hike in the woods when I caught movement 

out of the corner of my eye off to my left. 

Now mind you, I see plenty of dog, deer, rabbit, raccoon, squirrel and human tracks on the trails in

the conservation area so I was surprised as shit when a FISHER CAT came through the snow 

and trees out into the trail about 20 feet or so in front of me.

 I wasn't being quiet on my trek by any stretch of the imagintion......

( Picture Michelle grazing through the christmas buffet line in Hawaii. At 5' 11" 230 I'm a little shorter and lighter than her.. but you get the point)

anyway... there's about 3 plus inches of wet hardpack so it's noisy as I'm walking along. 

 He stopped for an instant then climbed about 10 feet up a tree to sit on a branch and decide if he 

was gonna eat me or not. Luckily for me I hadn't cooked any bacon yet so I probably just smelled 

like damp wet sweatshirt and old spice. 

We exchanged formalities, I said "Merry Christmas Mr Fisher Cat".

 He climbed down the tree and ran off down over the hill across a small field and back into the 


Here is quick video of a Fisher in someone's back yard.....................


Piers Morgan Really Let His Hair Down Over The Weekend...

One lucky reporter got a picture of Piers as his slipped a fell after a little too much 

celebration...........  Personally , I think the "No Loading" sign is a lie ;)

Now THAT's An Elf on a Shelf!

It's Much Larger Than Duck Dynasty....

 Great Post by Neil at Golden Geese:

Do I really need to say anything about Phil Robertson and Duck Dynasty?  You all already know how I feel.  To be honest with you, I never have even watched a full show.  I tried once, but it just didn’t click with me, although, now, I’m thinking about giving it another chance.

I have two questions - 1) What is with this outpouring of support for homosexuals?  2) Why is it more important to support homosexuals than to support a man’s right to voice his opinions?

Let’s see if we can figure this out, and we will start by asking another question.  Is homosexuality natural?  Well it either is or it isn’t, but since it exists, it doesn’t really matter.  The more important question is:  Is the reaction most people have toward it, natural?  

Remember when you first found out about it?  I do, and I will describe my reaction as “horrified disbelief”.  That’s stage one.  Stage one sucks.  Up until then, all that mattered to you was, buying that used mini-bike you had been saving up for, how your Little League team was doing, what was happening on the TV show, “The Six Million Dollar Man”, and would you be caught for stealing that scrap lumber from that construction site.   Life was simple and good, and nothing that you dealt with in your life, was beyond your understanding. 

Happy Winter Solstice...... 12:11PM.. Now The Run Up To Spring...

Yup.. It's Caturday.....

A Couple Good Posts That Are Worth Reading.....

Both of these have to do with the Phil Robertson / A&E debacle that is going on 

right now. This has more ramifications than just the fact that Phil got the lefties panties

in a wad.

First link is to The Lonely Libertarian where you can find a list of advertisers to boycott.

It's time to start fighting fire with fire... Hit them where it hurts.. Awaken the masses...


Next, stop over to Firehand's because he is the one that I followed over to the Larry Correia

post on the subject.

Firehand Summed up exactly how I feel about the way Larry can article his thoughts.

You can get the link to Larry's from here:

Why Didn't "I" Think of that......

More Snow Here In New England....

It's only 5-8 inches BUT it always feels like this.....


Irish 1... Bacon Thief 0

R.I.P  little guy... when it comes to bacon , it's personal.

To complete the circle of life. I will place him outside for one of the local crows or hawks to 
use as breakfast.

Three drunk guys entered a taxi.

The taxi driver knew that they were drunk so he started the engine & turned it off again.

Then said, "We're here".

The 1st guy gave him money & the 2nd guy said "Thank you". The 3rd guy slapped the driver.

The driver was shocked thinking the 3rd drunk knew what he did.

But then he asked "What was that for?". The 3rd guy replied, "Slow the hell down next time, you nearly killed us!"

The Bunker Has Been Infiltrated... I Shall Bring The Swift Hand Of Doom To The Enemy....

I keep my bacon fat in a tray on the grill just in case I want to make something yummy like
hmmm.. more bacon! or maybe deep fried eggs.... anyway.. I cooked some bacon last friday
and made a conscience effort to protect my stash of yummy bacon grease. When I bought
the aluminum trays I also bought the lids so I could steam veggies or keep something warm.
I figured that would be protection enough.....

Yummy Bacon Grease!

I opened the grill today after my hike and WTF???
Closer inspection?  WHAT THE!??...  he was busy.. 

The little bastard went all around the edge chewing at the seam
He won't live to see the full moon tomorrow..........

Lunchtime Trail Walk... Leads to Childhood Memories...

I try and walk everyday on the trails in the conservation land near the sooper sekrit bunker.

  Not too long ago they looked like this:

Now they look like this with 10 inches of snow... ( more coming tomorrow):

Ya...I'm just a big kid sometimes................. ( and yes the snow went down the back of my pants)

Maybe I'll go on ebay and try and find some old skool goodies like these:

( Ahhhh the 1970's, it wasn't fun unless someone ended up bleeding or hurt.....)
