Shooting and Bowling

Hey Neighbors!

While we were in Alabama a friend of ours took us to the free ladies day at the local gun range.  We really had alot of fun!  I haven't fired a pistol in several years, so we had to practice some before we could even hit the target!  Check out the pictures below.  We were able to use two different 38's, a 22, and a 9 mil Glock!  My daughter is now desiring a Glock.

She was shooting the pink 38.

Here I was shooting the pink 38.

She would like to have all her guns pink!

Can you tell she was having fun?

Taking aim!

The range is not far from the base, so you see quite a few military men there shooting away.  We had a GREAT time!

Then we went bowling on the base for quarter night!  Each game is a quarter and shoe rental is fifty cents.  What a fun night, we had 24 people bowling on 5 lanes!  Not only did they have cheap bowling, but hot dogs were $1.25, fries were $1.00 and sodas were 0.75.  Nice!  I sat and watched as I do not think bowling would be good for my back, but I still had a great time talking, snapping pictures and laughing at mistakes!

M bowling!

it was fun watching some of the different styles of bowling.  A few of them bowl regularly, but several walk up to the lane, swing the ball back and forth and then drop it.  The littlest ones used the gutter guards.  It was funny watching the ball zig zag down the lane before knocking over pins!

They had so much fun!
Looking forward to sharing some more of our adventures in Florida!

What To Do About Those Fuzzy Uninvited Guests In The Home

When we talk about pests in the home, the most common that we tend to deal with are the creepy-crawlies that find their way in. Ants, termites, and spiders, for instance. Occasionally though, you have a real chance of getting a much bigger, fuzzier unwanted guest in the home. What do you do about the fact your home is at risk of becoming a wildlife sanctuary for some truly unhealthy and even dangerous beasts? Picture by Alexas_Fotos Know the signs It doesn’t matter if you’re in a suburban home, a country cottage, or a fourth-floor apartment. Some animals can find their way just about anywhere. It’s worth knowing the signs of pest infestation so you can confirm it and act on it immediately. Spotting droppings, keeping an ear out for scratching, and looking for signs of nesting like shredded paper, scrunched leaves, and grass clippings around the home without explanation can help you start fighting back.
