Made It

Made it to the range today for the first time in months.  A birthday present to myself.  Shot the Hi-Power and Kimber 45 at 25 and 50 yards.  Didn't do too bad.  In fact better than I anticipated after months of not shooting.  As expected, my weak hand only marksmanship was . . . . well weak.

Fired my old Securit Six 357 and Super Redhawk 454 at 75 yards.  That was fair at best.

Only shot for an hour because the Achilles tendon started talking to me.

While there I re-upped my membership.  They now have about 1500 members, and growing.

President-elect Donald Trump has announced that he now has all the materials necessary to build the promised wall along the Mexican border.

When he won the election, 60+ million Democrats shit a brick....

Goes Up, Goes Down

The company that employees me had a sales increase of  40% in 2016.  They're expecting an additional increase of 30% this year.  Sounds great doesn't it?  If I wasn't so close to retirement I'd be concerned.  What goes up fast can come down as fast or even faster.

Something Wrong With Them

The Boss and I have 2 horses and 2 dogs.  Not sure about the horses, but we'll probably always have a dog or 2 living with us.  We can't imagine any other life style.

The other day she said that those that don't like animals have something wrong with them.  My father-in law and my sister-in-law don't like animals.  Obviously I conclude that there's something wrong with them.

My sister really likes animals.  She has 2 dogs, 2 cats and 2 guinea pigs.  That seems a bit much.  Might be something wrong with her as well.

We find that the dogs enrich our life and reduce stress.  The same with the horses, but to a lesser degree but only because they don't live with us.  The stress and hassle of daily life seems to disappear when I'm at the barn or riding.

Much Better, But not There

Today would've been a nice day for riding or a trip to the range.  Instead I'm sitting in front of the TV icing my touchy Achilles tendon.  The tendon is much better but not there yet.  Gotta treat it tenderly to prevent going backwards in the healing process.

The Boss has a T-shirt that says she's happy when riding her horse.  She hasn't been happy in more than a month, because I can't ride and she, thankfully, won't go alone.

Happy New Year

Here's hoping for a prosperous, and most importantly a happy 2017 for all.

Stiil a Gimp

Went to the Doc today after wearing the air cast boot for 2 weeks.  As expected the Achilles tendon is not yet healed, but much better.  Other than when sleeping or doing therapy exercises I need to wear it for another week or 2.  After the first I'm supposed to call in with an update.  If it's still sore to the touch we'll consider a MRI and possibly surgery.

Until then the granddaughter will be helping with cleaning stalls and generally helping to care for the horses.
