I've got nothin'...

Blech. It's icky and cold and rainy out, the high temperature for today was recorded at, like, 7AM, and after a couple days of it, the steady drizzle gets to be like Chinese water torture.

Supposed to take the Gun Blog 9 to the range this morning; I'll let you know how it goes.

Maybe I'll get a burst of writer-type inspiration as the day goes on. In the meantime, feel free to chat amongst yourselves.

I'll be there a few minutes after 10.

If you need inspiration, I'm packing a sample of some homemade CASHEW butter for you all.

Now take your current, gray cold wet weather and pretend it won't go to bright white snow and sunshine ever, unless one drives to the mountain ski slopes, then you have Wet Western Washington, for the next four months. Go shooting you will love it, and according to Brigid you are gone.

I had three cavities drilled & filled.

Without drugs.

Needless to say, I feel your pain...

Why would you not take the anesthetic at the dentist?

That's like not wearing ear plugs at the range. There may be valid reasons, but you'll have to convince me.

Anon, I thought the same thing, at first, but then thought about how there are some things worse than the immediate pain of surgery, for some people. One of them is loss of control of any kind.

Sunny here, but windy and chilly.

Please post a pic of the "Gunblogger 9".

Oh, come on. Novocaine doesn't mean loss of control. I had a root canal done with nothing but novocaine, and I was wide awake and kibitzing (when my mouth wasn't full of tools) with the dentist and his technician throughout.

Unless you're allergic to it, it's damn stupid not to accept a little pain-killer assistance.

And if you hate needles, I advise you to get over it. I hate 'em too, but it only hurts for an instant. Then there is only blessed relief as the pain goes away.

Yeah, well the deer blind this morning was no cup of tea either.

So much of opening day of the gun/deer season in Indiana.

All The Best,

We're enjoying a bit of a heatwave, temps in the 80's - and instead of a Match the club guys got together for a workday and had a good turnout building our firing-line cover, it was huge and we got a ton of work done.
