I feel fantastic after quitting. I quit cold turkey about a year and a half ago. I don't even have cravings anymore, even when I'm in a room full of my friends who still smoke like chimneys. I keep telling them quitting will be the best thing they do.

I used to not be able to walk 9 holes of golf without dieing, now I play 36 holes without breaking a sweat.

I was smoking waaaay too much, I figured it out to be about $3000 a year. Extra money in the pocket for toys. I'm glad I quit before the price got jacked. What are they up to now, $7.00 for a pack of reds?

Awesome! Your the man cane! I don't care what everyone else says.

I'm really not stressed by this test. Its just common sense questions and all the answers are already on the paper.

If your really bored, here's the practice test. I flew through it and got all 12. It really is common sense.

Ok, so I really want to try out frisbee golf thanks to dnthmn2004's video on youtube.

That little game looks fun.

Tomorrow morning (Saturday) can't come soon enough for me. Had a message on my answering machine when I got home from work this evening. A message I've been waiting for. Master Shooter's has received my AK-47 and Mosin-Nagant from Classic Arms and they're ready to be picked up.

Highly pissed off at work today. Every other shift left 4 hours early. Late shift got the s**t end of the stick and had to stay for the full 10 hours. Flight attendants were pissing and whining about having to stay late on a Friday when everyone else at work had already left for the day. Any other time, it's not a big deal...that's the "usual" shift. Today was different. Flight home was a roller coaster ride. High winds and turbulence bounced us around pretty good. Have seen worse, though. At least we were flying in one of the new 737-600s and not one of the 30+ year old 737-300s. Can you say "big difference" between full newer model turbofan and old full-blown jet? I knew you could.....

Nearly out of vacation time again. Damn migraines do it to me every so often. Doctor has been poking and prodding to see if there's a medical cause for the "swarm" of migraines I've been getting lately.

Saw a K98k WW II German Mauser and M1 Garand online that I'd like to get my mitts on.

Why do muscles twitch? Left index finger (former "trigger" finger) has been doing that for 4 days. Does it miss me shooting with it? Decided to go right-handed with pistols. Fired them lefty and rifles righty. Left eye dominant no matter which hand I use, though.

Didn't have allergies when I was younger. Now it seems I'm allergic to every freakin' weed in the county.

Its a good time. Once you get good at it, its about as addicting as real golf.
Its just a different way for me to exercise. I played 3 rounds yesterday, which equates to about a 6-7 mile hike.

I can't believe that new show Deadliest Warrior is putting a pirate up against a knight. They already did ninja vs spartan.


ITS SUPPOSED TO BE PIRATE VS NINJA!!! EVERYONE KNOWS THAT!!
