Good morning. Today is another lovely day like yesterday. Temps in the seventies with a little breeze. Yesterday, however, brought us a tiny bit of wet drizzle. I would say rain, but it was very light and spotty. Either way, it was wet and we appreciated it.
Have you noticed that we've already flown through July, and now we have a new month, August. Time seems to be flying by too quickly. Here's the August page from my calendar.
Well, yesterday was a great day for daughter Deanne and I. We went to our Basic NRA Pistol Class, and had a good time. We learned a lot, including which eye was our predominant one. This was new to me, and quite interesting. Later in the class, we all went to the shooting range at a local sportsmen's club.
Deanne and I were picked to go first, and I have to say we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. We have never handled or fired a handgun before, and we both did very well. The two guns we used were a 22 and a glock. I did very well with the 22, and Deanne did very well with the glock. Here's my target paper from the 22. I'm still smiling!!!
I think I'll call the instructor to see about signing up for more practice shooting for the both of us. I would like to be able to get all my shots near or on the bull's eye, and I'd like to be a lot better and more comfortable with the glock. Besides, target shooting is a fun sport.
Last evening I found the neatest tee shirt on the web. Rather appropriate for the day, I thought. haha.
DIL Janet came over for a while yesterday to keep Pogo company while I was out. This, of course, made Pogo very happy. I am so proud of my little guy. This was an all day class, and he did not have any "accidents."
Let me tell you a bit about how he is doing. He still itches a lot, but he gets long periods of rest and sleep without any scratching. And, for the last few days, I've been giving him doggie food for breakfast and at least one snack, and he is eating it!!!!!
Yesterday, the big bottle of Aloe Vera Gel (that I ordered for him) arrived, and last night I slathered his whole body with it. I'm hoping this helps to clear all the marks on his skin, and makes some of the itchies go away. Plus, it feels really nice on my skin!
Today, Pogo and I have to go to Town Hall to pay more taxes ( it seems there are always taxes due) and then we'll probably head on over to Home Depot to buy a yard broom and some exterior paint for the house. Busy, busy, busy.
Well, that's my news for today. Now I need to get dressed so that we can get started on our errands. So, till tomorrow, Y'all have a fantabulous day.
Hugs, Edna B.
