    I am pretty sure my son bought the rifle at a gun shop because he likes the cool looking old stuff. I bet that gun does have an amazing story to tell, it has a few scars but works great. [​IMG]
    No bear, just snow/
    I am awake at 4AM because I smelled something hot and my brain is still in worst case mode and just in case a rodent did chew a wire or something, I am ready for it. Besides that, my dryer has decided to not heat the air anymore and so I need to rearrange the laundry room in order to start checking the list of possible issues. Why is it always something....?
    The rodents around this place, aka, front range, are reaching epidemic proportions. Rabbits down at the lower ranch, voles in the garden and hopefully, snowshoe hare up in the high country, although they may be starving with all of the spring snow that they are getting. My cat is killing mice and I have yet another rodent nest to clean out of the airfilter box in the diesel.
    More coffee is going to be needed for this day.

    I think that would be a really neat short story from the perspective of a gun. It would have no right or wrong side, just a bunch of jobs What it was like to be new, and how it was identical to all the rest, and then as experience changed it, it became unique and one of a kind.
    Ok, somebody get started.

    I used to love to read short stories.You can almost pack more into one of them than a novel.

    The gun had a serious future but unfortunately, It had set it's sights just a little too high.

    Aw man Margie. Luckily we just have ground squirrels and rabbits but they're still a pain.

    Thanks Scott and drumstick. I can still clearly remember his voice saying that but was completely brainfarting on his name.

    Exorcized the demons in the old sewing machine, now to make a bunch more baby blankets (seriously there's something in the water here...one friend gave birth about a month ago, another just last week, and a third is due next month. Oi! I did it all backwards though. I gotta do blankets for the ones already born - the bun still in the oven had them made for the shower already. But, one last week I missed the shower, and the one a month ago I was having issues with the sewing machine for her shower...

    ...and the mil is in full out granny lust mode. Sigh.)
