    Just because you go on vacation...

    My wife is the primary caretaker for her elderly mother and though she gets some help, it still wears her down and she needs a break. It turns out that her aunt has a time share with Wyndham Resorts at Fairfield Glade (Crossville, TN) and has invited us to use her time share on numerous occasions. That's close enough, about an hour and 45 minutes, but far enough if you see what I mean. I have resisted going because there's nothing for me to do there, I don't fish, canoe, play tennis, golf or bingo - not that there's anything wrong with those , but I really don't want to spend 5 days and 4 nights bored out of my head.

    Then, I got online and discovered, believe it or not, Fairfield Glade Sportsman's Club! It has nothing to do with "the" Fairfield Glade or Wyndham Resorts, but it's only 6 miles from where we stayed. Once I found out I could join, I insisted to my wife that we needed to take her aunt up on her generous offer and head to Crossville so she could get some badly needed rest.

    So while she relaxed, rested, and did the quite things she wanted to do, I took off to the range. If I didn't go to the range, she would have to put up with me saying, "What do you want to do now?" about every 10 minutes. So she was glad to have some down time to herself, and I was glad to head to the range.

    Here's what I did one afternoon - just fun stuff at 300 yards...



    We got to go back in two weeks; it's really nice to be able to shoot on a different range every now and then.

    As you can see, I do anything I can to support my wife

    You're a great husband. A model for all of us to emulate.
