CMP Western Games and Creedmoor Cup

My friends from UCLA call them my Dick Cheney getaways. I started target shooting when I was 9 years old and have enjoyed the sport ever since. Next week is my big getaway of the year. A ten day tournament at Camp Pendleton shooting M-1 Garands, M1903A3 Springfields and the AR-15. Hundreds of the best shooters from the US Western States will be there and I look forward to basking in their good company.

Blood Thirsty Nun weds Tim the Enchanter. Chaos ensues.

My house has turned into Hogwarts. I have bats above my head and skeletons all around me. Black and orange delight the eye. I watched my darling wife cutting the tops off plastic roses to arrange them around a skull on a dish for the coffee table. My very own Morticia Addams with beautiful big green eyes. The kids will be bringing their friends this weekend. A sleepover with dementors hanging in the air for 10 year olds. Then a costume party for a house full of 17 year olds. I like Halloween.
