Spent last week in New Mexico with my son and his family.   I thought I would get lots of shooting in over 6 days.   Not so... I fired a total of 15 rounds.  I expected to shoot 1000 rounds or more.   The ranch had a record setting dry winter and spring.  No measurable moisture since February.    A stage 3 fire ban is in effect which prohibits target shooting.   The ban doesn't include private land but I'm not willing to take the risk, especially with black powder guns.   There is nowhere to shoot without standing among the dried vegetation.   I was disappointed to say the least.


Yeah all the trails are closed around here, even for hiking, let alone shooting.

And is on the way back up.


Just ordered some new plants for the pond.

Hornwort - Ceratophyllum Demersum, which is supposed to oxygenate the water, as well as helping to deal with algae.

Dwarf Bulrush - Typha minima

Royal Pickerel Rush - pontederia Dilatata

They should arrive by Thursday.

Had the best day in a long time. Despite the fact that I had to spend the day in Phoenix heat and traffic. Talked to someone who knows my ex and her current husband (the guy she was cheating on me with.) Apparently, she quit working and sits around eating. She is, according to them, roughly the size of a killer whale. And her husband - the guy she was cheating on me with - is taking hormones so he can become a woman.

Grabbing the buttermilk instead of the half and half to pour in your coffee is a serious mistake...

Nice workbench EM. You could build yourself a miniature Winchester House with those staircases.

Saw one of those bizarre sights on the way to town this morning. Passing through a small rural town on the way tot he big city, I spotted a pick-up waiting to pull out onto the highway. The driver was Jesus. Long hair, beard, mustache and a crown of thorns on his head. From what I could see, he was wearing what appeared to be white robes. And he had a very large wooden cross in the back of the truck...

My good friend Suzanne who owns the cigar shop on Allen Street in Tombstone had her final interview and site evaluation for her FFL. She passed with flying colors. She'll be able to place her first wholesale order for BP revolvers in just a few weeks. She has an employee that is a a gunsmith and sold guns for many years. He's extremely knowledgeable and a great guy. Looking forward to buying guns with somebody else's money for a change. Now I just need to figure out a way to have some of them follow me home.... )L$

Last weekend was the yearly Cigar Retailers show in Las Vegas.....met some great people and smoked WAY too many great cigars....also made it home with a giant bag full. We dress in period costume for the event and it seems we get stopped about every 5 minutes so people can have their picture take with us as well as private party invitations. As usual, it was a freaking incredible time. Here is Suzanne with Glen Case, the president of Kristoff Cigars.


Since SW Airlines lost my luggage (it never did show up) with all of my very best cowboy regalia, I got to be the photographer. Wait until they get my bill! I'm glad I kept receipts for almost everything. Most items are irreplaceable....custom made stuff that I've had for years. Nothing looks more out of place than a period cowboy in brand new store bought clothes. Needless to say....I'm heart-broken over the entire thing.
