Evening all.

Finally got my Kel Tec today. Put most of a box of 32 through it without a hiccup. I have a mag and a half left.  Then later there was a thunderstorm that was supposed to drop 1.5" hail, so me and my girlfriend took our cars down to a carwash for shelter.

I'm off work tomorrow, so I'm going to enjoy it.

We got some Rain from the storm...but generally our daily afternoon summer thunder-boomers are more of an event  :-\

Coffee is a occasion & treat now, as I have backed off the brew, it seems to flair up my Arthur --itus

Afternoon all.

Currently 85, as of 3:20pm local. In for some thunderstorms tonight, but that's normal.

I spent yesterday in bed with a 103 fever and nausea, but it's mostly gone today. Just a headache and mild fever that an aspirin holds mostly in check.

I worked 5-1 today, and got somewhat of a promotion-ish thing. I went from just another employee to the store manager's "preferred partner." There's no raise in pay, but I get that on my monthly evaluation this week.

I got back home safely from the Pa 3 day shoot. First day shot 6 stages clean, second day I shout the first two stages clean then had 2 misses on stage 9 and stage 10 was a total train wreck. I had a miss, a "P"but on the plus side I hit the 2 claybird bonus targets for 6 seconds off my time. Weather was sunny and mid to upper 80's with a nice breeze all day Sunday. I had a good time and got to catch up with some old friends and make a couple new.

Cloudy today with an of-n-on misty rain. Dry after I got home. A little work on the car, and now waiting on the processing time to be up on some beans I'm canning (or snaps, as Arcey would have called them).

Good morning all! Trinity glad you are on the mend. Major, welcome back and congrats on a nice shoot! Got a couple of toolheads adjusted for some new calibers on my Dillon 550 yesterday but still feeling lousy due to getting a cyst cut out of my neck last week. Y'all have a good one!

We've made it halfway thru the wife's absence, and so far no one has ended up in jail or the pound!   ::)  I think we can make it.

So far we have had over three weeks of sunny hot weather (as in NO rain), and are looking at least ten more days of the same.  After all the rain we had this spring, the sage and cheat grass have grown massively.  Now it has dried out and is ready to blow-up.  We have already had several small wildfires in the area, but the fire departments have knocked them down pretty quickly.  Think we?re going to have a long fire season this year.

I hate wild fires

Good article Major

Slim how many bales a year do you go thru?
We use about 50 here. It?s hard to find good straw here we would use a bit of that too. We use shavings instead.


Coffee is up...

Muggy and a possibility of rain later today.
