Tidbits in Exile

bad news:
-back in Iowa visiting family again. I hate Iowa. No that’s not accurate, I don’t mind Iowa, just the ‘poke your nose into everybody’s business – keep watch on your neighbors’ mentality that prevails there.
-another family reunion funeral.

good news:
-there’s a new gun store in town.
-the winter has been mild and we’ve been doing a good amount of shooting out at the farm.
-I’ve figured out how to make airborne clay targets break between the thrower and the ground.

shopping for:
-a low cost ‘starter’ type shotgun for shooting clays (and maybe even some real hunting)
-small bumper pull style camper
-arched mainspring housing to replace the flat one in my S&W 1911

other misc news:
-I’ve figured out how to make my shoulder ache for nearly a week at a time.
-I’m helping* renovate a new church  build a church (someone decided to tear down a load bearing wall without removing the load first).

*I’m not much help really, but I can: 1)fetch tools and snacks, 2)create a decent chair out of a bucket and scrap lumber, 3)pick up nails and broken glass without tasting them (who brings a toddler to a construction site?) 4)add some comic relief, 5)bitch about the government and other random idiocy, 6) and point out additional load bearing walls, while other people climb ladders.

  1. Do what you can do, and thanks for helping on the Church! 🙂 And you can’t go wrong with an 870…
