Soooo...I haven't been around because I've been on the road, and not shooting really; I did a little portrait shoot at one stop on the way, but it's been Highland Games and family biz...here in Santa Barbara until Saturday, then head north and pick up MY CANNON on the way to Sacramento; to Medford Sunday then home Monday. Finalized the sale of the Ca. house today and wrote a check for A HUNDRED AND SEVENTY-FIVE THOUSAND DOLLARS to pay off my loan on the Oregon house...both kewl and depressing at the same time, in and out of my bank account in one day! And yes, my cannon...a 1" black powder field piece that will shoot 15/16" ball bearings a half a mile...hee...hee...hee...! Can't wait to take it to the Newport Games!
