    I have tons of stories to tell and lots of adventures to tell about. Oh, and pictures, too. I've been pretty tired and pretty busy but I PROMISE to post more later tonight. I just wanted you all to know I have not forgotten about you all.

    Here's one story that I'll post now, though, because it is so funny.

    We were at the range, all shooting away and Bear's lovely daughter, Samantha, decides to talk a walk in the woods behind us. She takes her camera with her because she likes to take pictures of the interesting things she sees. So, she returns and starts showing me the pictures, telling me what each one is. There were some very good pictures there and then she shows me a picture and it's a picture of a 'spotter'. So, I say, what's a spotter? She looks at me like I'm nuts and says, "You don't know what a spotter is?" I say, "No". She repeats, "You have never seen a spotter?" I, again, say "No". From the picture, it kind of looked like a slug. She says, "You know, the things with 8 legs.........." I'm thinking of a slug having 8 legs.......:confused: We are staring at each other with looks of confusion on our faces. ABG calmly says from a distance away..........."She means 'spider'." I thought I would die laughing. Sam has a pretty heavy 'Kentucky' accent. It was the joke of the weekend. Except, of course, the story of Bear's wife, Janet, having something up her pant leg that 'shouldn't be there'.

    Story to follow.........

    Do you even know the difference between a yankee and a damn yankee? A yankee comes down south and then goes home, leaving money.
    A damn yankee finds out how laid back we tend to be and the damn yankee stays. ROFL.

    Okay, so.............

    Saturday night, after shooting for 5 hours earlier that afternoon, we were sitting around the picnic table. I'm sitting next to Janet, Bear's lovely wife, and all of a sudden she starts feeling her pant leg at mid thigh level and saying "There's something in my pants that isn't supposed to be there." So, she reaches down the waist of her pants to her thigh and pulls out........a little toad. She tosses it on the picnic table and it hops away. I thought it was so funny. Since when does a toad climb? Well, if that wasn't funny enough the next morning I go to Bear's for a second day of shooting and Janet says, "Last night as I was getting ready for bed a spider bit me in the back of the thigh." I said, "Well, if you would have kept the toad up your pant leg maybe it would have eaten the spider." I think it's pretty strange to get two critters up your pant leg in less than 12 hours.

    Day 1 at Bear's. Saturday, September 24th.

    I wake up from a wonderful night's sleep at the Hampton Inn. I get to Bear's and I unload my Mark II and the scope, my Dad's Marlin and my Dad's Browning FN. I had also taken the pink grips off my Mark II so it would fit in the case for travel. So, Bear mounts the new rings and the scope and puts the grips on. The gun is now incredibly beautiful.

    After Bear zeroed in the scope, I had a GREAT TIME shooting this gun. Not only is she beautiful, but she is incredibly accurate. Now I know what you guys mean when you say the gun is much more accurate than the shooter.

    Than Bear takes my Dad's Marlin apart and gives it a much needed dose of oil along the barrel where there is some rust and then lubes the bolt part. He works it a bunch to spread the lube and the gun is working pretty good.

    The Marlin waiting it's turn for me to shoot it.

    Day 2, me loading up the Marlin for some shooting. I really enjoyed shooting this rifle............even though I wasn't very good with it.

    Bear shooting Maggie. The other handsome guy is Bear's nephew, Nick. Nick is a great young man and a pretty darn good shooter, too.

    Here's Nick being goofy later that night.

    Here's Pengie with a hot young lady. This is Nick's sister, Bear's niece, Andi. Andi is pretty good shooting guns, too.

    I don't know. So sorry. I am not very good at posting pictures. Whenever I try to enlarge them, they just get pixelated. I have never figured out how to post better pictures. :(

    If you have any suggestions on how I can post better pictures, I'd sure like to know.
