70599973rd and final shooting mat made it just in time for the match tomorrow. I usually only have one and a small one that I can pack easy. With Jamie, Buzz and the neighbor all going to be shooting at the same time as me, and the fact that there is 5” of snow on the ground and it’s melting meant I needed to get them up off the wet. I really needed them anyway because eventually when we are all shooting at the same time as a family, I’ll need 4.

At first I thought you either brought horses into your living room or you had some 50 shades of grey thing going on.

Alright, I have to do a little shameless bragging... there was a shoot today that I took Jamie, Buzz and the neighbor to. There are 4 different stages and one of them is a head to head speed shoot. You set your gun and on the go command, drop down and fire. First guy that breaks all five targets wins. It’s bracket style and Buzz ended up getting 3rd out of 30 adults!! He was a machine! He lost to a 25 year old kid that was shooting a left port, right eject bench gun and is DAMN FAST!!!! The guy went on to win. The neighbor guy had a blast and hit targets farther than he ever thought and Jamie did great too! 7060787Him all set up

Well fellas, this blows to write.

Ed the neighbor has passed, just today. Coming up on 92.
USMC. Iwo Jima and Guadalcanal.
Left the USMC in 64 because they wanted to have him be a DI at Parris Island rather than deploy to Vietnam which is what he was pushing for.

Darn good man. We are a little less now.

Good stuff Brian.

That little man is lucky. So is his dad!

Mine is at her moms this weekend and I am down with the flu.
She sent me this:
“I miss you daddy so I just hope you feel better soon, you’re the best I love you so much and I know you’re not feeling good but please take a nap”

She used her moms phone and talk to text. Just turned 7. My house got dusty real dang fast.

Nice job Brother. I really wish we would have had more than one rack of ribs available, but I sure as hell wasn't going to Astoria for 1 fricking rack or 2. But I should have.... :ROFLMAO: To busy watching Tiger make history.

Some of you with good memories and tenure will remember my neighbors and their beautiful children.
They were recently featured in a video produced by the medical center that has been an integral part of their lives for some 11 years and counting.

Truly amazing people and their day to day trials make just about anyone else's day, including my own, appear to be boring and easy.

So yesterday I had to run into town and take care of a few things and do some shopping. Damn near got to shoot, but that didn't happen, again. Slid over to a friends place to help with his Horse Barn we've been milling wood for and building. He finally came around and had a change of heart regarding the Yotes on his property. He's new here and likes when he's on the Tractor in the field with the Brush Hog on and the Vultures circling overhead, the Ravens landing in the field, and the Yotes (young ones) not more than 8-10 feet behind the whole mess eating field mice and rats.

Sez kill'm all now. The Calf wasn't on the ground 5 seconds before they killed and ate it. He didn't have a gun with him. He now carries on the property and is prepared now . We hung the remains in a tree away from the cattle. They'll pay now....
