Just topped off the wood stove for the last time in 2017. Looks like just a hair below 0 right now.

Happy New Year to all.

27 now... heading for a low of 17 tonight.
That's cold for here, but warmer than places I've lived in the Midwest & Northeast.

Our 27 was on the other side of zero. Hopefully above this week. This is cold even for me. When it hurts to breath you know it's cold. I'm with you Art, never have enough practice.

Brrrr. Glad we are having our heat wave.
I have met so many " shooters" over the years that complain about not enough range time. Asked how much dry fire exercise they do at home the response is more often than not " what is that". I learned the importance of dry fire over 50 years ago in Marine Corps boot camp and have worked at it ever since. I may not be the best shooter around, but I sure enjoy what I do.
Personally , just keeping the bones moving has been, in my estimation, way more important that the shooting. 70 on my next birthday an I still enjoy every minute of it. A friend of mine that is over 90 now has competed at Camp Perry every year since the 50s.

Warming up. If the wind lets up later I might get in the first range time of 2018 for me.

Had a little fuel gelling problem with one of the company vehicles yesterday. Doubled the dose of Howe's and finished the day without incident. I knew I was in trouble when " low fuel pressure" showed up on the dash display followed by " reduced engine" power.

Took this from our back lanai on Kauai in September. Warms the heart just thinking about it.



Same view with a wedding in progress. Dang I love the slack key guitar music.
