Won't make Palmers Gulch this year, this weekend we are shooting Rocky Mountain House, then the July 1st weekend Burnt Bacon and all her kids and I are getting together for one last time before both her daughters give birth and getting together becomes even more difficult. There goes the Palmers Gulch weekend, but the weekend after that we are off to Simms Montana for a 3 day warm-up to the Montana State Championship.

Spent the day working at getting part of the basement ready for paint and tomorrow I'll start painting.  I found that by days end I was getting a touch on the grumpy side, yup no doubt about it painting makes me grumpy.  Thank God I get Saturday off to go to the Biggar shoot with my grandson, that should get rid of my grumps but for now.

GET OFF MY LAWN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Painting is right next to golf on my hate to do list ....  Golf is the worse waste of time yet found ...

 

Turn all golf courses into Cowboy Ranges !!!

Well now I don't mind shooting golf balls..........With guns that is :P other wise I feel much like you where golf is concerned.  When Granny and I go to the Calgary Gun Show I always take a back pack.  A few years ago when we walked in the door the security wanted to check it for "weapons".  I replied it's to small for golf clubs, when he quit laughing the guard let me in without looking. 

 

When are you heading to Kamloops Jabez?  Granny and I are hoping to leave first thing Tuesday morning.  Should be at the range by early afternoon on Wednesday.

How did you do? 

I mean, Did you have fun?

Wet with a lot of rain around here lately.

Matches cancelled and/or moved to other ranges to get them done.

Grass is growing so fast, but is so wet, it's hard to get cut, so:
GET OFF MY SOGGY LAWN!

The weather was Hot and dry ,,,,,, the Location is to die for ,,,, the stages were great with challenging target placement,,,,, Targets in the trees should be painted some other color than dark blue in the trees in the shade ......

ONE SHOT and where are the targets ????   Yellow would make for better  visiblity ...

Sunday was 37....

I made more Smoke than anyone else ......

Hi Jabez

Granny and I made it back home from Palmers Gulch on Saturday after spending several days at my daughters in Cranbrook.  When we listened to the news Saturday we were amazed to hear about all the fires in BC.  According to Highland Whiskers Facebook post he has been evacuated but is safe.  We are sending prayers that both Highland Whiskers and all our other friends and their property in BC stay safe.

 

And yes it was a fun match again this year.  A couple of the stages were a bit on the challenging side with targets spread out in the trees and shadows.  Despite that it's still one of our favorite matches to shoot.  Glad to hear you enjoyed it as well.  

 

We likely won't see you until the next shoot at Lanes in Aug so until then stay safe.

Chuck wagon races cancelled last night, due to thunderstorm/lightning strike taking out the track lights. DANG!!

I was looking at some pictures from the 40's, '50's and 60's  Lottsa changes.

The upgraded, light weight speed wagons and stoves are sure different from the old days!!

I wanted to be there this year, but SWMBO is unable to travel and I can't leave her to herself for that long. She feels pretty bad about that.

SO I'M GRUMPY!

NOW GET OFF MY LAWN!

Can't

She-Who-Must-Be-Obeyed had another series of bad falls.

Twice in the bathroom and once in the family room.

Emergency room visits, stitches, MRI's concussion.

Sure wish the Doctors would get to the bottom of everything that's wrong and do something.

(And no, she doesn't drink.)
