Jason got out and spent some time doing one of his favorite activities... Shooting. I've gone with him a couple of times in the past, but not today. Today I had a few other chores I needed to get done, and also I needed to pick up the girls today, after they got out of school. Anyway, Jason had fun and I can just imagine how things went.
Jason is a bit of perfectionist, when it comes to a few things, and one of those is his shooting. While others can be seen, on either side of him shooting and squeezing off shots about one ever two seconds, Jason will spend 10 seconds (even more) with each shot, just so he knows his sights are tuned in correctly. Once he is comfortable with the setting of the sights then he will begin shooting more rapidly, but the first part can take up to a half an hour, and those he shoots with are always standing back just watching him. Its funny too, because none of them are bothered by him taking the extra time, as his shots are very accurate and he is amazing to watch. The irony that today was when he was shooting his M-1. While he was using it, it went to automatic rapid fire and pretty well shocked him at first. Fortunately, the range master was right there and checked out his rifle and was puzzled a bit afterward. There is no setting for automatic, and it shouldn't be able to do that kind of fire, so everyone was puzzled. As it turned out, Jason just put the rifle away and will be working on it tomorrow, after he takes it apart.
Tonight Linda and I took the girls over to visit with our cats, and that was kind of fun. Both of the cats are very well cared for by their wonderful foster family; Anne, Glenn and their son, Nick. Candy is still stand-offish and Pumpkin is as friendly as ever. We're so looking forward to the house being finished, so we can come and live with us again. I think once that happens Linda will begin to feel a little more complete.
After the visit we came home, and it was late enough that the girls went straight to bed after a story. Jason was already asleep, so we didn't bother him, and now we're making our way to bed, ourselves. Thank you, for all the continued support and prayers. Take care and stay positive.
