Today was a fun and exciting day for Jason and I, as I was able to start the day off with a nice 15 mile ride, sort of a combination of a couple of my regular routes (I have about a half dozen or so). MoThist of the rides begin with my heading up Rosecrans and then depending on where I feel like going I might go left, right or simply straight ahead. Today I went straight ahead, then turned around at about the 2.5 mile mark and rode back to the point of deciding which way to go. This time I went to the left (which would have been right from the other direction) and rode out to the harbor and rode the rest of that ride. It was nice, though it was far more crowded than I usually see, so I had to take a little more time than I typically do in that area. I still made the trip in about an hour, so I was happy about that.

Once I was home I had to cool down and then get dressed, so I could get Jason and Gracie up to their dog training, up in Oceanside. This was also the place where Anthony Netto was going to be meeting us so that Jason and I could get out and go target shooting with the new guns. Jason has a new Beretta 9mm and also a bench rifle, that was custom built. Anthony has been working with the various shooting ranges, both civilian and military (today we were headed to Camp Pendleton shooting range), to get them to expand their programs for helping the wounded warriors. Jason was using his paramobile to do the shooting and the Range Master, and other Safety personnel were all impressed with how it worked and allowed both Jason and Anthony to shoot, in a "standing" position. We spent a few hours there and went through about 150 rounds of ammunition, and I even got to shoot. We all had fun and I even managed to hit the target. The real good thing was that Jason was able to shoot with his right hand, with enough control that his accuracy was high, and then he shoot with his left hand and did well there too.

Once we were done at the range we were all hungry. We hadn't had lunch and it was now getting closer to dinner, so Anthony suggested that we stop at a restaurant that he was familiar with, and it had excellent food. The server thought we had ordered too much food, but we were all hungry, and as it turned out, two others joined us (Angelica and Josh) and in the end there wasn't much food left over. On top of that Jason had himself a tall beer, and I think by the time we were done the affects of the beer was showing on him. You could see in his eyes that he was tired and just wanted to call it a day. We left and finally got back to the house by 17:20 (5:20pm), and once we were all packed/unpacked back in the house I suggested that he take his shower, otherwise he would fall asleep and get no shower. He agreed... The shower was quick and the dressing change was better than I expected. I thought because of how long he was up today there might be additional damage, and there wasn't. Neither of us were hungry, and in a matter of a few minutes he was asleep. Thank you, all for all the continued support and prayers. Take care and stay positive.


  1. Know that you're always, always in my thoughts and prayers!
    Psalms 27:7-9 Hear, O LORD, when I cry with my voice: have mercy also upon me, and answer me. When thou saidst, Seek ye my face; my heart said unto thee, Thy face, LORD, will I seek. Hide not thy face far from me; put not thy servant away in anger: thou hast been my help; leave me not, neither forsake me, O God of my salvation.

  2. Always keep your eyes on the Lord. Praying!
    Psalms 27:13-14: I had fainted, unless I had believed to see the goodness of the LORD in the land of the living. Wait on the LORD: be of good courage, and he shall strengthen thine heart: wait, I say, on the LORD.
