Not thirty seconds after I finished up last night's entry I got an e-mail from the NRA store with the following quote splashed across the top: "An armed society is a polite society." - Robert A. Heinlein. I just thought it was really funny considering what my friend had said.
Got in almost a three-quarter mile walk today. I am going to have to get some proper shoes/boots for that considering the terrain I'm walking on. There's a section of woods, about 1/3 to 1/2 way through the walk, that had a powerful stink of rotting meat coming out of it. Had to have been something way bigger than a squirrel for it to stink that bad. I'm thinking a raccoon or opossum, maybe a turkey. Now I have to wonder what killed it...Oh well, that's kind of the reason I bought the pistol and got the carry permit: there's meat-eatin' critters in them thar woods!
Finally getting some use out of the RunKeeper app I downloaded on my phone two years ago. Hopefully I can keep this activity up (I've been going in fits and starts, this is only the third walk in seven days) and lose this frakking weight! If only to make it easier to carry concealed when I need to. Not a lot of concealment options for someone my size don't you know.
I've decided to wean myself off of FarmVille again, lol. I just got caught up in it when the new farming area opened up and I've been a hard-core farmer for the past two weeks. Done with that now, or at least until yet another area opens up.
Critter has been shooting some with the new BF lately, and apparently she's a pretty good shot. She saw a pistol online somewhere that she likes, but it's almost $400. I think it's this one but I can't be certain since I haven't seen her since she told me about it and she wasn't sure what site she saw it on.
It's a nice looking little gun for a .22, I think she'd like it. I did have a silly Star Wars flash in my head thinking about it though. I was picturing me giving it to K some day saying, "I've got something for you. Your mother wanted you to have it when you were old enough but your uncle wouldn't allow it. He was afraid you'd follow old ToyMan off on some damn fool idealistic crusade."
I really need to get a life...
I must've had it wrong, she went with solid pink. I think there was one in a local pawn shop and she didn't have to order it. She just posted it on Facebook, but I'm kinda surprised since she was acting like there was no way either of them would be able to afford it anytime soon. Guess it's an early birthday present for her.
Here's the one she got:
