- The FNRA dinner on Saturday night went very well.
- I am proud to say that I sold out the chances on the drawing I was working in an hour and a half. Someone paid $20 for $2000 worth of guns, and was quite happy when his ticket number was called out.
- I also had a good discussion with one of the members of the staff at the venue, and he was excited to learn how to purchase a gun and where he could get some training. I suggested a couple of places in Louisville, and wished him luck. Hopefully I brought someone new into the tribe.
- I was going to wear my Remington 1911 as a barbecue gun for the dinner, but as I was taking it out of the safe, one of the decorative buttons on the grips came off. Oh well, wearing a S+W Model 13 as a barbecue gun is nothing to be ashamed of either.
- The new truck is very comfortable, and I’m very glad to have the air conditioning these past few days. I have even learned how to back the darned thing into a parking spot without trading paint with other cars or other obstacles.
- I’m not looking forward to filling that 26 gallon gas tank in a couple of days, though.
- Moonshine the Wonder Lab and Crash the Combat Kitten have come to some kind of understanding. Moonshine now only tries to play with Crash during hours in which the entire family is either asleep or trying to quietly read, and Crash no longer puffs up to three times his real size and tries to slash Moonshine across the jugular.
- I have dubbed the normal Siamese kitten freak outs as “Combat Parkour”.
- I need to remember to do something very special for Girlie Bear. The past few weeks have been really chaotic for the family, and Irish Woman and I have had to lean on her a lot to keep things running. I’m thinking a day out at the range dedicated to her needs to happen in the near future.
- I’d like to say that things at Boo’s school have been getting better for him, but I can’t.
- Irish Woman and I are looking for a solution that fits Boo’s needs and personality a little better.
- The school he’s at right now is an excellent place, it just doesn’t seem to work for our son.
- Public school is still out of the question. Even considering that the schools close to our home are pretty good, there’s just too great a chance that he’d end up on a long bus ride across town to satisfy someone’s idea of social justice.
- To my garbage man: I’m so sorry, but Irish Woman and I have been on a “Get it out of the house” kick, and this week most everything we looked at that needed to go wasn’t worth donating.
- Spending an evening alternating between having in-depth, life changing discussions with your wife and chatting with two teenage girls is kind of disorienting.
