Good Eats...

...with fine company are something that makes a family get together so nice. We had my wife Linda's side of the family over this afternoon, and had a great Italian Cheese and Meat Pie (3 meats, 6 cheeses) cooked by the younger brother-in-law Hans, then had a nice dinner of Leg of Lamb, Homemade Gravy, Asparagus, Corn, Mashed Potatoes, and Homemade Red Cabbage all cooked by Linda. It was simple fare, nothing fancy, yet was mouth watering, absolutely delicious, and quite filling. Linda is a great cook. For desssert we had some Apple Crumb Cake that the older brother-in-law Alex brought along, some Chocolate Lover's Brownies that Linda baked, and great coffee.

'Just Another Day In Paradise' indeed!

All the best,

Enough Time To Clean Some Guns...

...is exactly what I have before our dinner guests show up later today. I have about 2 hours, maybe enough time to clean 2 rifles and my shotgun, with a decent job done. I hope it is also enough time to get the magazine tube cap off of my 870. For some reason, after shooting at the Trap Range yesterday, it would not unscrew for the mag tube. We only ever tighten it by hand and it has never stuck before, so I figure it is nothing a little Breakfree CLP cannot cure. Oh well, let me get going, I have to get it done now so the aroma of the Hoppes dissipates before company arrives.

All the best,
Glenn B

Palm Sunday

For those of you who celebrate, have a happy Palm Sunday. Today my wife has invited over some of the family for dinner. It should prove to be a nice day indeed. As for me, I stopped being religious years ago, although I will readily admit, even though I am not one for organized religion, I live by the majority of the morality taught to me in those bygone days. Yes religion and its messages can be good things when not taken to extremes, sadly though it seems, to me, that too many take it to the extreme.

Enough philosophizing for me for today, now back to the original message. If you celebrate Palm Sunday as a holy day, enjoy it as much as possible. Have a happy Palm Sunday.

All the best,
Glenn B
