I can Shoot

Several months ago my dad and brother attended a gun training program called Front Sight. It's a real "kick butt and take names" sort of course. They loved it and love telling how well they did in the competitions and scenerios.

I mentioned that we have a 9mm locked up at the house but I'd never fired it and wasn't even sure how to use it. I know...I know...if you've got guns you should know how to use them and be safe with them. At that point I figured safe was locked up with a combiniation only my husband and I knew. So my dad said he would be honored to show me how to care for the gun, shoot it, clean it, store it, etc. This week was the time. My dad brought up several of his own guns and gave my kids and my sister and me two days of instruction. The culmination of the training was a trip to the shooting range.
Me and my dad.

Pretty dang good I think.
Me and my sister
I definately out scored her.
Bad Guys better watch out 'cause I will stop 'em if they try to mess with me or my family!

I have another blog that I keep as a private blog. It's more of a family enterprise...all of my kids are set up as authors...sometimes they suprise me with the posts they make. I thought I'd share a recent one SUNSHINE posted.

She is 14 and has been reading through the Old Testament. She has done really well to make certain that she doesn't miss a day. I love her dedication, even for me the Old Testament is difficult at times. One time when I was talking to her about her dedication she complained about the and so begat so and so who begat so and so and SO ON.... I told her that I usually skip and skim those parts. She told me that she thought about doing that too but then thought about what it might be like in the next life when she has a chance to meet these people and have one of them confront her with, "I can't believe you thought I was not important enough to even read my name." So she reads every single name.

So with that bit of introdution I share part of her posting....

"During my studying of the Bible I have done the imposible! I found something in there that I think is hilarious! In Numbers 22:28-30 I found this. K so in the story this guy, Balaam, is talking to his donkey. Well accually the donkey is speaking to him. So the donkey is saying all this stuff and it asks Balaam a question. And Balaam answers "nay".

In case you didn't understand the humor in that, I'll break it down for you: The donkey is talking and the guy says nay. That seems a little backward to me.

New Beginning

I've taken a LONG break from blogging...pushed through some tough stuff...maybe this space has been left unattended and private for long enough. Maybe I'll continue to find things to write here and maybe I won't but I've put it back up. And... I'll let it become whatever my hands let it become.

For now a new post..a new look...maybe a new beginning.
