Oh good. Dad is safe then.

I thought maybe Dad was going to go out and shoot something with you. That's what happens in our family. Especially on holidays. We have a meal together, then we go shooting. It's just what we do.

I wish he could go shooting with me, but I'm afraid he's at that frail stage. I'd love for him to shoot my WWII M1 Garand and Remington Rand 1911. Those are two weapons he had during the war, before he got a tommy gun when he became a scout. He'd probably get a kick out of them.

Last time my dad was here for a visit, he was able to shoot with my sons with the guns he gave them years ago. They used to be his, and instead of leaving them to the guys in his will, he gave them when he could enjoy seeing them enjoy them. I am really glad that he did that, because who knows, by the time dad passes away, someone may have tried to take those guns so that my sons and husband didn't get them, if you know what I mean...

Family legacies/traditions are great.

Morning all! I've just finished #9 in the book series I'm reading and am fixing to start another one. Done some laundry, run the water distiller, tidied the kitchen a bit and started thinking about dinner. Have a date to go on a long ramble with Murray and his buddy Dallas (the cutest Australian shepherd ever!) and Dallas's owner who is a good friend of mine.

Things still to be done before that: showering, deciding on dinner (ravioli in marinara or meat sauce?), more laundry, tackle the dust bunnies and brush the dog again...the list could be endless, but that is my current schedule of events for this day off. I'd like to do some baking today too, but its heating up out there and unless I can figure out how to do it in my BBQ that isn't happening.

mmm, ravioli... What's in the filling, Alix?

I just finished lunch; two Canadian bacon sandwiches.
