i thought i'd just do a quick post to show you what i did today. dad called early this afternoon and asked if we wanted to do some target practicing (like he even needs to ask!) and then go to eat dinner later. where chris and i live, there are no neighbors (just look at the pictures), and we have about 140 acres where we can do whatever our hearts desire, and often they desire target practice. pop brought his new 1979 colt .45 (the same gun he had in the marines) to shoot for the first time, and we also had a 9mm, a .380, and my personal favorite, a .22 rifle. now you might be thinking, "this girl sounds like a militia hunting lady." you'd be wrong. i just like shooting a gun, but the only thing i'll ever hit is a target. anyway, i always like to have my camera handy, and pop and tricia, my stepmom, are always happy to play along with any poses i think we need to do!
the second picture is my mean face, so be afraid if you ever see it. i kid! i love the last picture of pop and tricia doing their mean faces!
in other news, i have a slight sunburn on one arm from sitting on my front porch crocheting this morning and enjoying the beautiful spring weather. and best of all, while we were at dinner, we were tall talking about speeding tickets we've gotten over the years, and this is the best quote i've ever heard, courtesy of my pop, "i was in japan for a year and got 6 tickets! and i didn't even have a car! and one of those was for driving on the sidewalk!" the man's crazy. period.
