    So a little while ago my son walks in the back door and says "what the hell". You see a few days ago my wife moved in with my daughter, my daughter had surgery and won't be allowed to walk for 6 more weeks. She has a 9 month old little boy that isn't content to stay in one place for very long so she'll be needing lots of help. So anyway with the wife out of the house I moved my reloading stuff into the dining room where I can work in comfort and not be too far from the kitchen and the fridge. So when my son walked in there I was measuring powder on the dining room table with AC/DC streaming and blaring in the living room. He hadn't heard yet that I was on my own for a few weeks, after I explained it, it all made perfect sense to him. Although I believe that he thinks I am some kind of a past middle aged delinquent. But I have to tell you at this point I don't much care what anyone thinks, I'm having a blast.

    Nothing like a little "Highway to Hell" while measuring up some IMR 4831!

    My day just keeps getting better! I went out and sat in the rain for the last 45 minutes of legal shooting time today and dropped an 11 point whitetail. I'll get pics up soon, got a lot of work to do right now.

    I'm afraid that I would of said something like "your mom left me" Then once the shock wore off of him tell him the truth.

    But then I usually have a warped sense of humor at times.

    Now don't scratch that dining table or leave any evidence that you were actually having fun.

    Lucky bastard...twice for that matter.
    Just don't be butchering the deer on the dinning room table and you'll be fine.
    A wee bit more messy clean up than IMR.

    Enjoy your time and I hope your daughter's recovery goes well.

    I'll give you the picture of the deer but a picture of the table could come back to haunt me.

    I'm really starting to like my little Ruger Ranch Rifle in 300 Blackout with a suppressor on it. It knocked that buck down pretty handily and no one in the hood has a clue I shot anything.

    My preference goes between Aerosmith and Rolling Stones - guess that says something about my age; but then it also justifies why the volume is higher because I'm accused of having selective deafness.
