Amen!
I have plenty of Italian stilettos. The Asian pieces are just for fun.

Re: I'm heading back to Tijuana.

An old man like me usually doesn't raise too many eyebrows. I could probably tuck a knife in my sport coat jacket pocket and walk on through. I just don't want to risk the humility and/or the fine associated with bringing back an automatic knife. I'll peruse the shops on Revolution Avenue and see wh...

If I wanted ham, I would have contacted Sean Penn.

Re: I'm heading back to Tijuana.

Make sure you check the local shops for knives again !!!! Have fun !! If I buy a "prohibited" knife, I'd probably be searched and tapped at US Customs. This would be an expensive mistake. :roll: :oops: Not going to do this. Wouldn't be either reasonable or prudent. Nope, I'll do all my knife shoppi...

Re: I'm heading back to Tijuana.

PS. Today, the peso is .488 cents (less than 5 cents). It fluctuates, but the prices are attractive when compared to the US.

Re: I'm heading back to Tijuana.

I am paying $46.98 per night at the Hotel Aqua Rio on Avenida Constitucion for seven nights (3/16 - 3/23). Bottled water and coffee in the rooms, (sanitized daily). Satellite flat-screen television, air conditioning, toiletries in the rooms, the works. You would likely pay a healthy $100-$120 for su...

Re: I'm heading back to Tijuana.

Did you ever make it down in the Lincoln? No, I figured it all out, and I can fly on Frontier from PDX to DEN, cool my heels for 10 hours and fly on down to SAN in another 2 1/2 hours for less than $200.00. It would cost $550.00-600.00 to take the Lincoln and It would take at least 19 hours until I...

I'm heading back to Tijuana.

I'll be flying to Denver (from PDX). After a 10-hour layover, I'll have a 2 1/2 hour flight to Charles Lindbergh field in San Diego. I'll arrive at 11:38 on the morning of the 16th. I'll take a bus, then the trolley to the International border at San Ysidro, and walk the 2.2 miles to the Aqua Rio Ho...

Looks nice. I think that they'd be fine as "collectibles" but not much more.

Thanks.

The word is "too" (meaning also). May I suggest a refresher course in English grammar? Now, back to the question.

Re: The Infamous Black Beauty

The "Black Beauty" autos were banned by the time I understood the fear surrounding automatic knives (I was all of 3 years old). The modern horn scale picklocks were legendary 12 years after the end of WW2. The modern picklocks may not be perfect, but they're close to those of 4 generations ago.

Asian stilettos (made to look Italian).

There are some 13" (33cm) on Amazon that looks as if they are Italian but makes no claim to it. Are they with the $35.00 - $40.00 for the "click therapy" (entertainment value) or should I pass? :?:

Opinions? Comments?

Re: Covid shot

The VA gave me both vaccinations. (My last dose of the Pfizer vaccine was on February 15th). No side effects at all.

Food poisoning

Three days ago I rose, had 6 eggs for breakfast, and took off to help a friend run his car lot. For the next 72 hours, I suffered from the disgusting, gut-wrenching pains of food poisoning. God help me, it was hideous! I have since recovered and am back on my feet. Sweet merciful crap, this was a ma...
