Pulled emails and did some other things till they got home. Had Todd look at my S&W 45 for a problem I was having. He couldn’t figure it out either so I packaged it up and took it into a gun smith.

Now the specifics:
The best news this week was my son Todd coming to visit. He came in last Sunday and will stay till this coming Tuesday. He was suppose to have some friends come out from New York to attend a function with bands and vendors this weekend but the rains the beginning of last week caused problems with the area they were suppose to be at so the cancelled the event. Apparently it was a dump that they capped with clay then built the park on top. With all the rains it go muddy and they think the clay cap was compromised.
The visit has been great and very interesting. I had several opportunities to chat with him. It’s been a long time since we’ve done that. He “squared” me off on a few things and we learned some things together.
He is still the same guy. When he was getting off the airplane he was chatting up a young lady. She was a Captain in the Army JAG. Todd ended up going out with her and a bunch of her friends during the week. Has plans to go out with just her again sometime. When we went shooting he was chatting up the lovely young range safety officer. Just can’t keep the ladies away from him.
Todd wanted to try my 45 when we sent shooting. After I cleaned it I was having a problem getting it back together. Todd tried and had the same problem. So I took that to a gun smith. Needless to say they kept it. I’ll give you the low down on that when I get it back.
Kathy was out playing with the daughter and grand kids on Friday when they came over. She fell and did something to her leg. It has been causing her some discomfort. Seems to be slowly improving but gets stiff it she sits in one place too long. Yesterday she tried taking a Hydocodon (SP?) to give her some relief but that just made her groggy and sick. It wore off around 6 hours so she was OK.
My friend Gary came home last Wednesday. I picked him up for church this morning. He seems good. Still doesn’t have his balance back. Perhaps that will just take a more time. I expect to go over this afternoon for our afternoon get together.
I have been fighting an intermittent cable problem here. It doesn’t seem to bother the TVs but has been taking down the internet connection rather often and sometimes even hits the phone modem. Since the internet modem is mine I bought a new one this week and installed it in place of the old one. Still have the same problems. I will call them tomorrow and have them check the signal level coming into the house. According to the modem logs it appears to be down at the higher frequencies.
OK, that’s enough for this week. I will blog at your again next week. Everyone stay safe and have fun. Bye for now.
