I’ve been hearing from some of you again wondering what’s happened to the weekly Update. My apologies and I’ll try to fill you in.
The last week or two we’ve seen the GEC 44 Gunstocks trickling in and we should see the Northfields starting to come through the first of next week. Next up will be the 14’s which will take a long time to get finished up. I asked yesterday if there was anything on the schedule beyond the 14’s yet but it doesn’t sound like it. I just hope it’s not another run of 15’s!!!
GEC has their Rendezvous coming up in August and just a heads up, they’ve got a really nice Wounded Warrior Project Raffle knife. It will be a 44 Gunstock with White Pearl Looking Glass handles. This should be a really classy looking item. Give Chris a call or drop her an email for ticket info. The Wounded Warrior Project is a great organization and the money they receive makes life a little easier for some of our Wounded Warriors.
Beyond that, it’s been an incredibly busy summer. My wife finally retired the first of July and life will never be the same…. ‘nuf said. The last three weeks it seems like we’ve either been on the go or had company. My nephews came up and we insulated and dry-walled my garage two weeks ago. My buddy Isaiah came up from Iowa for 5 days and we just sent him home this week. His visit included a baseball game, fishing, water skiing and we built a killer fire ring we’ll christen in another week for the annual family get together.
But lets back things up to that first week of retirement. We had company the 4th of July weekend and a few days later took some time off to go golfing. I’d brought the golf cart home to clean it up, fill it with gas, etc. On the way back out to the course, we’re cruising down the four lane with the cart on a trailer behind the Jeep when suddenly a car comes alongside us honking and pointing back to the trailer. My wife’s new golf bag and clubs (2 month old retirement gift) had come loose and fell off the cart…..in front of a semi.
We found part of the clubs but a few are still in the ditch. Other then the heads broken off from the Drivers, it’s a little tough to see the road rash on the other clubs. And a few shafts aren’t perfectly straight anymore either. Long story short, my wife has another new set of clubs. There have been a few other interruptions to our day to day routine but this gives you an idea what’s been going on.
Another 10 days and the family get together happens. Then a field trip to the Northland. And finally, we get ready for a trip to North Dakota for another pheasant hunt with a possible prairie dog hunt squeezed somewhere in between.
Otherwise, it’s just another routine day. Even the crime reports have been a bit subdued but I figured this one was worth sharing. Remember the movie Bad Grandpa? I never saw it but this makes me think their might be potential for a possible sequel.
