  • I spent much of the day cooking some of my favorite comfort foods, and was rewarded with excellent results. French Onion soup and baked macaroni casserole.
  • I met a friend for the first time, and discovered he is every bit the intelligent gentleman I always thought he was.
  • I was given a gift... an M1 Garand. Owning a Garand has been a life long ambition, and this one coming as a gift from a friend makes it all the more special. More will be written of that rifle in the near future.
  • I held an actual piece of history in my hands. An F45 Liberator pistol. (Today I hope to photograph it). When he rolled that from it's protective covering, my jaw dropped.

I suspect today will be pretty good as well.

My best friend has an old garrand. He loves that more than his wife and tells war stories about it (not his just legends) I only shoot trap and other than trapguns are not that gun savy even though I have a few.

I wanted to thank you for your haiku. It was great! You sound like a pro. I decided early on I wanted happy haiku's. It's not your fault you're not a mind reader. It's all for fun and I hope you participate again. Auntie belle won and I wanted to make sure you went to http://abporkrinds.blogspot.com to participate next week and mine /curmudgeonscomplaint.blogspot.com to see everyone's haiku.
