Next thing you know this guy comes out of pretty much nowhere while we had walked back and were reloading under the roof. He was there, but not really doing much shooting, just kind of standing around watching, and he starts picking up everybody's brass and putting it in an empty cup. I'm like, "Hey, what's going on here?" "Oh, this brass is worth good money right now." I said, "I know, why do you think I save it?"
Goofball... I wouldn't doubt people hit up ranges just for the scrap brass anymore, whether they reload or not.
Guess the guy didn't notice you guys were packing heat.

I'm glad she'll be OK, munk. Now I need to Google what a fox tail is.

I keep my membership to a couple places, but I'm glad I can shoot at home.

Foxtails. They're nasty, sticky grasses. I was dogsitting a friend's Jack Russell, and he got a piece stuck in his eye. Vet had to remove the piece.

The tough part is once Sophie heals up, there's no stopping her from doing it again.

CM, is there a lot of foxglove around?

Foxtails are really common. Generally more field weed, not so much shaded woodland.

Foxgloves are really pretty flowers, but extremely poisonous. Digitalis is made from foxglove.

I don't think there's much of that plant directly by me, but I've seen a lot of it at the peninsula.
I wonder why a dog would want to snort one of those in... hard to say what they're thinking.

If you brush by a foxtail, some of the seed stalks might stick to you. Sort of like a burr. Sophie may not have inhaled it, maybe rolled in it, or sniffed something around it.

Interesting. I hope none moves in here.
