    Beautiful weather

    It was super nice out today here in Ohio with a high around 65 degrees. I took some new shooters out to the range after church. Later, after dinner, the family and I enjoyed a nice bonfire made from my former kitchen cabinets.

    It was truly a beautiful day. How was your day?

    It was nice down here in too. Taught my 7-year old girl how to shoot with a Daisy BB gun (that was fun!). Took an hour nap. Grilled a tenderloin on my Big Green Egg, turned out great.

    It sure was a beautiful day here in Coastal SC. I didn't make it to church today, but hung out my sister, her fiance, and my niece and then later went to my parents house for some BBQ chicken, potatoes, veggies, and cornbread.

    Family sure is precious.

    Went to church, out to breakfast, grocery shopping then home! It was beautiful here too...around 62 and sunny. I spent a couple of hours cutting back bushes and cleaning up my flower garden. My husband had to take the chain saw out and cut up a huge tree limb that broke off a White Pine a couple of weeks ago. It was great to be outside again! Can't wait for spring!

    74 here. Woke up what seemed like an hour early and went to church. Took the boys, 4 & 2 shooting (airsoft) 92f in the back yard then went to the park. Being there reminded me that kids are like farts, you don't mind your own but can't stand other peoples'...

    I'm coming late to this party, Tim.

    The wife and I went out after Church to shoot two new guns. It was in the 70's here in WV and just beautiful. The range was packed but there was a couple, (the guy having his gal shoot for the first time), they were leaving and gave us their bench.

    I got a Taurus PT 790 Slim 9mm to replace some of my stolen firearms and got the wife a Ruger 10-22 she's been drooling on for awhile now.

    Funny side note, we almost passed on the 10-22 but she said "I'd rather have that than jewelry." The guys in the gun shop laughed and one of the younguns there asked if she had a "daughter!"
