Taking a friend shooting this afternoon
I love these opportunities. For one, it gives me a chance to pass along the education and skills that are required with handling and using firearms. Secondly, it's my neighbor of all people. I never thought he'd ask me to go with him in a million years. He's just not a gun guy. He goes deer hunting, but that's once a year and he uses a borrowed .243 that is only shot during deer season. When he asked me to go with him last night, I had to contain my excitement when I answered him back. He's taking his dad's Taurus .40 with him on a trip to Colorado beginning tomorrow and has never shot it one time. He doesn't know shit about it. The last time we all went to CO, I was the one who was in charge of our security. He's on his own this time.
As you may remember, I posted about going to Colorado next week a while back. Well, things have been brought to light and discovered during an MRI of the Smoking Hot Little Barefoot Gardening Squaw's back since then. She's got 3 bulged discs with 2 of them almost at the point of rupture. Es no bueno por caca. We aren't real sure how it even happened. She's in good shape and still young. The earliest neuro appointment we could get for her that's not in August, is July 16th. Yep, the week we were supposed to be in CO with my neighbor who's not much into gunning and his wife. I would be inconsiderately out of my mind to ask my wife to suck it up and go on that trip in her condition.
Am I still taking the entire week off next week? Hell yes! Anything I can do to get myself out of the salt mines for a week works for me. Let's call it a staycation y'all. I'll be in The Backyard doing what I normally do, which is building something, working on something, or smoking a piece of meat as I listen to my tunes in the shade while sipping on some of that ice cold Strawberry Blonde Wine. I'll also be taking care of the SHLBGS's needs too. She doesn't lift a finger if I'm around to help. That's what you do for people you love. You cut for each other and that's what keeps you together. She's been my ride or die woman going on 13 years now and we haven't killed each other with our dominant personalities yet. Can I get a hell yeah?
