What a beautiful day.
After church this morning (Yep, Pop...I went.) I stopped by the range to test out some new loads I'm working on for my Winchester Model 94 .30-30.
Here's my target with the upper left being preliminary sighting-in, and the other three representing various powder weights.
Then, after shooting the breeze with all of my range friends for a while, I went down to the river with my newest toy: a 12 foot Pelican Pulse 120 kayak that I bought yesterday, fairly-well used, from the local kayak rental place.
Today I spent a couple of hours playing on the Shenandoah river and breaking my new boat in, just paddling up and down and enjoying the warm, sunny day. The water sure was cold, though. Still, on a day like this, who can complain?
And just so Murphy wouldn't feel all neglected, I stopped at the store and bought him a marrow bone, fresh from the meat department.
Then it was into the kitchen to cook up a beef stroganoff that was worthy even of a distinguished chef like Brigid.
Now I'm drinking beer and getting ready to clean the Winchester on my deck as the sun sets. Life, as they say, is good.
