First, I attended a conference in Bloomington, which meant that I was not at work and I got a free hot breakfast: french toast, bacon, fried taters.
Second, I was offered a new job and I accepted.
Third, I took a newbie shooting at M4M's house. He had a great time and really liked my AK. I don't have a plinker upper for my AR. I think he would've liked that better. He also shot my MN91/30 and HK USPc .40. I managed to dispell some firearm myths and generally educate him a little more. Prior to this, he had only shot a .22. I attempted bumpfiring, and only managed a couple of doubles.
Fourth, I went and ate at Smokin' Jacks Rib Shack.
Fifth, I bought a new pair of Rocky boots at Shoe Carnival.

That was my day, and it was good. Thanks to M4M for the continued use of his range, thanks to Rynich for putting my AK together, thanks to ya'll for being cool and here.

28 today.

I can't even remember when I was 28?

Happy Birthday Man!

Heck, I'm an old geezer -- I'll be 38 in January.

Jim, glad you had a good day and congratulations of the job opportunity. Is it at the same place that you are currently employed?

How did the slapped-together shooting bench do? It's getting rained on as I type this.

Right now it looks like I'm going to Code 80, same building as Rynich is in, but working for a different branch. This is assuming that no high level management gets involved to stop it, who knows.

The 91/30 was shot from the bench quite a bit. Worked quite well. Was that plywood top treated or not? It didn't look it. If it delaminates let me know, I've got some more OSB that you can use and we'll paint it ASAP.

Happy "B" day Jim, I know it's a belated wish but the thought is still sincere.

Hi Phil!
AK ran great with the buffer, no more concerns about it jumping off the rails when I charge it.
Thanks again!

Twenty-eight? That's almost fresh from the wrapper! My underwear is older than JimTh!

Happy birthday, junior!
