This morning we got up and Jason and I went with Anthony Netto, to go shooting. For those that don't know, Jason has a new rifle and he wanted to try it out, and the folks over at Miramar, the Marine base. were willing to help out. They opened the shooting range, today - a day typically set for just maintenance, just for Jason and Anthony to get some target shooting in. First they had to "zero-in" Jason's scope and rifle at 200 yards, and then Jason made some shots at 500 yards. I guess they did a good job because in Jason's words, "You can drive nails with this gun, at 500 yards." That means you can hit a very small target, or at least he could.

The two of them had some fun and lasted for a few of hours, then we all came back to the house. For the shooting, both Jason and Anthony used their paramobiles, as Anthony is also in a wheel chair. I chose not to shoot today, and was basically there for moral support and to be a driver. Once we got back to the house we picked up Linda and we all went to get something to eat. I was real proud of Linda as she stuck to her diet and only had a lite salad (I had buffalo wings). Once we came back to the house Anthony and I went over some of the books for Stand UP and Play, and then we all just kicked back and rested. Anthony even was able to take a short nap, prior to him having to drive back home.

The rest of the evening was relaxed and Jason went to sleep early, as he was tired. The only thing we didn't get to do was go to the zoo, for our walk  (the zoo closes earlier now). Tomorrow Jason has some VA appointments, and we'll be gone most of the day - so I am glad he went to sleep early. Thank you, for all the continued support and prayers. Take care and stay positive.


  1. Glad Jason was able to have some fun!
    What amazing words of Scripture! Praying right now!
    Psalms 139:17-18 How precious also are thy thoughts unto me, O God! how great is the sum of them! If I should count them, they are more in number than the sand: when I awake, I am still with thee.
