I liked this thread from another forum, so I thought I would start one here.

Today I cooked breakfast for my family, then finished planting the garden. I worked in the yard a bit as well, and used my slingshot to rehang my dipole antenna, that was taken down from the high winds a couple days ago. I killed grass around a tree where we're going to make a flower bed, but it was still a tad damp to till it yet. I cut the grass for the 2nd time this week, which now puts me back on schedule to cut every thursday. Getting ready to go fire off some rounds to end the day.

I cruised all day on a 1950's Chinese junk with sails, drank beer with my friends, watched the Dragon Boat races, swam with my kids and ate supper at the Top Deck of the Jumbo Floating Restaurant in Aberdeen, then finished Fork Hunter's Catapult and shot a score of lead balls through it. All in all, not a bad day.

Happy Mother's Day, BTW (we celebrated already).

I was up a 6am. Having coffee thinking and praying about the day a bit. Did a little work on the computer before everyone else got up setting up a A+ Slingshot "swag" store...mugs, shirts etc; with our logo. Called my 80 year old Mom and wished her happy mothers day. Made more coffee and hot tea for my wife. Got her and the boys up to eat and get ready for church. The worship service on "Mothers Day" went well with a Luncheon afterward in our fellowship hall. The Pastor actually preached OK today!!

Got home and decided to take the fam to see the new Iron Man movie. It was awesome cool!!!! No slingshots, but a lot of great action. Got home about 6pm and the wife made Tacos and the fixin's for dinner. Yum, yum!!! I'm drinking a cup of coffee and enjoying a piece of left over mothers day carrot cake as I type this and check the days posts and emails.
All-in-all....a great day!!!!!

Didn't do much at work today...moved some equipment i.e. bobcat, backhoe and roller. Put up some fence and that's about it. Shot about 60 to 75 shots so far today. May shoot some more before dark.

Woke up at 4;30 AM and went to my slingshot shop and made three bent steel slingshots, got 'em polished and wrapped. Took a shower at 6:00 AM, saddled up the motorcycle and went to the newspaper. Did some mechanical repair on one of the printing units. Set-up press for Daily paper, set up insert machine to insert our shopper and ran the mail part of it. Then set up insert machine for daily paper and went to lunch at 10:30. Back from lunch at 11:00 AM and plated up the press for the daily and ran it then went into inserting room and inserted it. Re-set up insert machine for shopper city routes and got it inserted by 3:45 PM. Cleaned up and rigged press for tomorrow morning run. Took a couple of guys over to the insert folder and showed them how to run it until 5:15 PM and cleaned myself up and changed clothes and rode the bike the long slow way home to enjoy the ride. Got home called Mom in Oklahoma to tell her we were coming for a visit next week. Sat down and ate some chicken at 6:30 PM. Hung upside down on my inversion table to stretch out. Laid down to take a nap at 7:00 PM and woke up at 10:30 PM and went outside for slingshot target practice. Came in the house at 12:00 midnight and got on the computer to visit with the guys. It's now 3:30 and I'm gonna go to bed.

"...called Mom in Oklahoma"

Smitty are you originally an Okie??? Just wondering. My wife's parents both come from Oklahoma. Lots of family still live there. We visited last Summer. They still have some homestead land and a home there as well as in Texas.

Received new ammo from royal steel ball today. I got 15# of 1/2" and shot about 100 rounds of it today. Also got another 15# box of 7/16". Another easy day at the job. Wife drove my 2003 ZR2 Chevy to work today. I got it 2 days before the Alverton tourny. The dealer I bought it from paid a local detailer to do a "smoke-out" service on it. They did a nice job. Reserved my room in Springfield, Ill for the Memorial Day Weekend, AMA Flat Track races. Looking forward to that, as I'm debuting new poker chips for some of the riders. Watching American Idol right now.

found out I can't join the army in Australia (until I get my citizenship), lost my mouthguard (and so dodged going to muay thai tonight), took my fiance to work, refrained from flirting with a cute checkout girl (given that I'm spoken for), walked my extremely excitable golden retriever, and put a new marksman band on my W slingshot (seriously , I could put a .65 through a car door with this puppy). Ungh, life is good.
