Say Hello... To My Lil' Friends!
Where ARE my manners?

I can't believe that I haven't given a quick rundown (in no particular order) of the various fellow Blog-lodytes that I have added to my links section. And I don't know how I find the time, but I go to these blogs every day. You should too!

Fidei Defensor ~ He knows the REAL meaning of Rule .303 --- My kinda guy.

Custos Fidei ~ Hard hitting, pull no punches blog. Now if I can just get him to attend the Latin Mass more often.

L.A. Catholic ~ The "Big Daddy" of Catholic blogs. The Alpha Male... but I'm sneaking up behind him with my club.

City of God ~ Rick, my GOOMBA! You gotta go to his-a blog or I break-a you face! Capice?

Darwin Catholic ~ Poopie diapers, runny noses, deep thoughts. One never knows what to expect there.

Thoughts of a Regular Guy ~ Paul, just this guy, you know? He and I quietly await the freeing of the Latin Mass. Well... maybe not too quietly.

Aggressive Conservative ~ Just the name alone makes him linkworthy; the blog equivalent of the New Hampshire motto.

Upper Canada Catholic ~ I don't care what the news media says, there are plenty of good conservatives in The Great White North. And he's funny as hell to boot.

Confounding The Wicked ~ Any non-Marine who knows that Parris Island is spelled with two R's is OK in my book, hey and he confounds the wicked! What more could you ask for?

Island Catholic ~ Yet another reason to like Rush, Hockey, The MacKenzie Brothers, and Polar Bears. 'Eh, take off you hoser.

Pro Ecclesia * Pro Familia * Pro Civitate ~ The Flower of Southern Manhood incarnate forced against his will to move to a foreign country... Ohio.

Dad 29 ~ Old, nasty, likes Chesterton. Hey, I just described myself!

The Inman Family Pages ~ Just a good old (Kentucky Catholic) boy. Never meanin' no harm... Beats all you never saw, been in trouble with the law since the day he was born. (Isn't this the point where he jumps a perfectly good bridge in a '73 Honda Hatchback and screams out a blood curling Rebel Yell?)

Curmudgeon's Cave ~ Us cave dwellers gotta stick together. And besides, "Curmudgeon's" such a cool word. (I'm going to have to use it in a sentence today...)

Catholic Church Conservation ~ The Lord Baltimore of Blogyland. Veddy British... Veddy Catholic. Pip, pip cherrio and all that rot. WHAT WHAT?!

Catholic Patriot ~ Speaking of Lord Baltimore, the Favorite Son of the only state named after The Blessed Mother graces us with his presence. Pretty cerebrial stuff here. If I real it real S-L-O-W I have a clue at what he's talking about. I just wish he had pictures.

There are other out there (like Franklin and Scarlette) who are blogless, but because they're just so darn cool, they deserve mention.

Thanks for the great compliment. I will have to find out if any Gillibrands made it to Maryland.

Scarface, one of my favorite movies of all time.

Thanks for the plug as well!

I'm attending my very first Tridentine Mass this coming weekend. I overslept two Sundays ago, but I'm gonna celebrate it very soon.

Just one suggestion. Read up on it some. For a newbie, it can be overwhelming at first. Well, that was my first impression.

Yeah... overwhelming. Overwhelming in just how CATHOLIC it all was. Whoever coined the phrase "The Mass of the Senses" hit the nail right on the head.

Every Mass I go to, the sights, sounds, smells, and above all, the spirituality, they all simply wash over me.

Conde, my friend... you're in for something very special.

Master Caveman,

Thank you for the high honour of inclusion on your blog list. It might please your readers of Anglo-Saxon descent to know that my home state, the former Royal Province of Maryland, was explicitly established as a safe-haven for English Catholics who became, shall we say, extremely politically incorrect after Henry VIII threw his hissy fit. The US has no bishop with the authority of a duly invested Primate (in the clerical sense), but the City of Baltimore is the honourary Primatial See of the United States, being the first and oldest.

It is also interesting -- and instructive -- to point out that while Maryland kept its government in the hands of the Lords Baltimore, the Catholic Faith was defended. However, a manpower shortage caused the Lords Proprietor to begin inviting Protestants to settle. They demanded a place in the colonial assembly and, when they gained a majority, overthrew Baltimore and began persecuting the Catholic founders and their descendants.

Everything old is new again.

There are lots of reasons I love my state. Yes, it has become a haven of Liberalism. On the other hand, how can you not like a state whose state sport is -- no, not baseball, not football, not even lacrosse -- are you ready for this? JOUSTING.

I invite those of you who visit Baltimore to assist at the Tridentine Latin Mass celebrated at St. Alphonsus EVERY SUNDAY at 1100. (That is 11am or "11 in the morning" to you civilians.) My wife and I went there this past Pentecost: it was awe-inspiring, to put it lightly.

Here's a link to the Church:

Semper fidelis et Dominus tecum,

Dei gratia pater familias fidei defensor

Caveman, laugh out loud worthy descriptions of a lot of great fellow bloggers.

I need to get to doing a run down of my links one of these days.

Also I agree Scarlette needs to start blogging!

As for rule .303, if only the damn stuff wasn't so expensive. 14 bucks for 20 rounds!

Thanks for adding me, man. If I ever take the time to figure out the technical thingamajiggies related to bloggering, and I can do a blogroll, you'll be there (along with Rick Lugari and others you've mentioned).

And as for Rule .303, don't complain about cost if you're shooting .303 Winchester. At least you can find cartidges! I can't hardly find cartridges for my lever-action .303 Savage at retail--not even at the Cabela's here in Kansas City.

So I'm stuck shooting my bolt-action .30-06 (which, as a lefty, and a guy who usually needs to get off a second shot, is a pain).
