This would look nice, patrolling the Castle Pond...

Okay, we could park it there, and, based on draft, move it mebbe 20 feet.  Still...




And on a related note, a couple of these around the perimeter of the demesne would cut down on the poachers, methinks.  And look kewl.

Lastly - these might interest CDR Salamander, as well as me.  If it weren't for that pesky demil requirement, anyway.  However, they would make a helluva flagpole...

H/t Kevin, the Flea, and Brad, in order.

Based on what I've heard about the life of the average Private in the ROK Army, I figured the mill-around at 1+39 in the countdown was the prelude to a live demonstration of tracking running targets...
 
The whatzis photo won't show, but I was about to tell you that if I lived out at your desmesne, I would have some free-ranging dogs that DIDN'T belong to a Guard Dog Union. You wouldn't need any better system, and a pallet of kibble once a quarter feeds a lot of them. Treats all around for kills until they get the idea...
 
Rivrdog - we've got enough feral/semi-feral dogs around here as it is.  Not too mention the coyotes.

The "whatzis" isn't a photo - it's a video of the only running PT boat (at least  that's in WWII configuration).

Geesh - That was some vicious Castle Echo®. (BOQ)
 

 Now that's a wonderful story.  God Bless these good men, and thanks for preserving this good boat.
 
So John,  I guess you'll have to find another supplier before you install that shore battery to prevent the Spanish from sailing up the Missouri River?
 
John,

I've seen double posts before but don't you think that's a bit overboard?

Cool story though, a bunch of guys passing on a bit of history.
 
She would be a good addition to the Moat Fleet.  Ol' Sand Pebbles, is getting a bit long on the tooth.
 
Apparently I missed something regarding multi-comments...
 
Personally I always wanted to get my hands a Mark II PBR. Would be perfect for fishing/recreation me thinks :)
 
Hey, Armorer - Is this one of YOUR neighbors, perchance:

No, but dang, she shore can rite purty!

Our goats are cuter than those goats.
 
And hopefully your billy woudn't be mistaken for a nanny.  Although as the ossifer said, he probably woulodn't come back for quite a spell if he was thusly misidentified...
 
A new Moat Monster is a good thing.  I would have preferred Nessie, but one that you can actually power down is better.
 
Believe me, Cricket, I concur. The Moat Monster is nothing to mess with, 'specially if you've spent some time in his tummy.
 
Ah, I mind the plans I had for the Bitter-Sweety's place. Her back yard abuts  a small pond, with the problem of the neighbor kids fishing without permission in their boats and  encroaching on her Territorial Limits. 

I had plans, I tell you.  I sketched out a water battery of spud guns on Buffington-Crozier disappearing carriages (rifled, of course)  and higher up, on the back patio, the grapefruit mortars.  Sigh, it all came to naught, and all she can do now is yell at them, mention her S&W revolver, and threaten to call the deppities on them.
