    My wife will be leaving for her sister's in Connecticut tomorrow morning. She'll be staying a week so, with driving time, that gives me nine or ten days of peace and freedom. I'll probably go up north sometime next week and see if I can get some work done on the camp.

    My own wife might frownupon such activity, worrying about my welfare constantly. I remind her I am armed. Confronted, I can fight back, broken leg, well,............

    I am going to bring a couple of weapons because I want to get some shooting in, not because I expect to need them.

    Remember the cowboys of yore, holding a six-gun in both hands, ready to fire one or both? Those guns in reality, to fit historically, had to be single-action only, which means each shot required cocking of the hammer, a thing possible with one hand-hold, but best achieved using the other hand's thumb. Note Bruce Dern cocked his revolver for every shot he placed at John Wayne......

    Sadly, my vacation is coming to an end. Michelle is in Portland, Maine for the night, and will be home tomorrow.

    Were you able to go and spend some time up north at your property and little cabin , @Ken Anderson ? I wondered if you went because I hadn’t seen you referring to any adventures up there in any of your last few posts.

    It must be homecoming weekend . I think that @Frank Sanoica said that his wife is flying back to Vegas this weekend, too.

    No, I didn't make it. I was going to go last Monday or Tuesday but we were late getting paid and I like to know that I have some money in my account whenever I travel more than a few miles from home.
