    Maybe I'm just really good at pretending.

    This is not a reference to you, Cinder. I just came across a situation that made me want to say

    There are just some things men shouldn’t do and some things women shouldn’t do.

    Did you have to stand behind her and reach around her to show her how to hold the pole? Did she bait her own hooks? Did she catch any fish?

    I felt that might have been too personal to ask.

    Don't do it!!!
    Took my ex shooting shortly after we started dating, I set her up with my Browning Buckmark, while watching her shoot closely, I was loading a mag for my longslide 1911, and sliding the mag in the pistol. She put 10 from the Browning inside the 8 ring, then turned around set the Browning down, picked up the 1911, racked the slide and put 7 inside the 9 ring of the same target. Fooled me into thinking she was a keeper!! (Actually she was, I apparently wasn't, but that is a whole other story). :rolleyes::rolleyes::rolleyes::rolleyes:

    Sounds like a positive metaphor for things to come if I ever heard one.

    Day 6 of my self-quarantining at home while awaiting a coworker's CV test results. HR says I (and the others in my department) can't come back to work until she tests negative, and her test was delayed. She already tested positive for flu.
    I'm thinking of this as a dry run for retirement - too much time and limited funds. Today will be spent making yogurt, building beehives, and maybe transplanting blackberries.

    I blew through a couple hundred rounds of ammo today, .22, .45, .357, 9mm, .44 and a couple 3.5 inch turkey loads. I don't consider myself recoil shy but 2 ozs of #4 kind of beats you up.

    Once my sister-in-law and I took our kids fishing. There were 5 kids in total. All we did was bait hooks and untangle lines. My SIL was the only one to tangle her line in a tree. ROFL. I think the kids had more fun than us. Great cousin togetherness.

    Guessing you mean the 12 gauge loads. I used to always say all a 3.5" 12 gauge load is is a 10 gauge load stuffed in a 12 gauge shell. In the recoil department that's not far at all from the truth. :p
