It's a Liquid Amber tree. There's a few people here with wood burning stoves there used to be alot more. This house has a gas fireplace. A friend came buy and took the larger logs to his house. He has a wood burning stove in his shop. The rest wasn't worth fooling with and I just back from the dumps getting rid of the small stuff.

Yard is good to go now.

Last night I went out with some friends, saw "Surrogates" and hated it. Today I worked a bit in the morning, after that I did a couple of hours of MMA training. In a couple of hours I'm meeting a friend for dinner, and then we're going to the theatre to see Soledad Barrio and Noche Flamenca (it's supossed to be really good, and she's been looking forward to it all week).

Tomorrow I'm going to work out with my coach (probably just weights, I don't think we'll fight) in the morning. Depending on how my arms are feeling I might go to the archery club. I want to catch up on some reading and write a few things in the afternoon.

Today was my first day off in 4 months. Glorious!

Ran some errands (pet store, Lowes, Donut shop) with my daughter, did some essential house stuff, and returned some client calls.

Just chillin now but eyeballing a pile of Oleander that needs to be cut up and stuffed into the "clippings" bin.

But I'm feeling like working on some guns...

Sweet gum just isn't prime firewood, and the tendency for it to lose limbs every time a fat sparrow lights on it guarantees that what you DO take in the house is full of bugs.

Went out and broke in a new AR today. Little wet and muddy at the farm but oh well still had fun. Looks like I will be mowing and doing winter preps around the house tomorrow.

Already started half of it yesterday (Saturday). I bought Mrs. TXnorton a new 9mm, and this morning we take it out to the range and let her try it out.

I know, I'll get flamed for this, and after all it is a GIRL's gun, but I bought her a Walther model 99 in 9mm (polymer frame, 4" bbl, 15 shot double stack mag).

She definately wanted a high capacity automatic, but she does not have real strong grip strength, and she had problems cycling the slide on my Browning Hi-Power. So off we went to the local Bass Pro and let her try every 9mm Auto they had. The Walther has a light slide pull, and an easy (for her) to manipulate slide release, it also has an easy to use and obvious de-cock activator. It fit her hand well and she was comfortable with it. It has a nice double action trgger pull and an even better single action pull.

The Walther 99 is basically your generic ploymer framed striker fired automatic, but it is German made and therefore was a bit more expensive than the other options available.

While we were there I also picked up a Taurus 24/7 polymer/stainless with a 4" bbl, 12+1 d/s mag in .45 ACP to use as my "keep in the truck" gun.

Before I am acused of having the ghey, my favorite auto is my stainless Colt Gold Cup, but I could not see keeping that weapon rattling around in the console of my truck, or stand the thought of possibly losing it, hence the "throw-away" Taurus!
