Annie Oakley

As promised I'm posting some pics from my day I spent shooting at the gun club. We had a great time, as always.

We did a drill where we only loaded 3 rounds and when someone said go, you had to come out from behind the barricade and fire 3 rounds into a target, I hit all 3 times, yeah!

Our friend Jay at the barricade

The guns we took today (part of the collection) top: Taurus .357, from left to right: Walther P22, CZ50 .32, Beretta 9MM (Hubbys favorite), and my latest toy a Kimber 45 (aint she pretty?, LOL!)

King Kong

We saw King Kong today. I must say that I wasn't looking forward to seeing it, but I'm glad I did. Peter Jackson did a pretty good job , complete with dinaosaurs and everything. Naomi Watts does a great Faye Ray (?sp) I must agree that I'm not sure I liked Jack Black as the famed director. I read mixed reviews about casting him and I'd have to agree. It's not that I don't think he can play a serious role, I just didn't like him in this one. Adrian Brodie does a good job as the screen writer. All in all, it was pretty good and worth the 3 hours, they went by rather fast actually.

I'm having a great week off. Tomorrow we are taking my brother shooting. I'm gonna take my digital and get some shots to post. Hubby constructed a new target to play with, (rubbing hands together).

Be safe!

Well I wasn't going to post anything this week so I could finish a story I was working on. I finished it today, YEAH!! I know Kate will be happy to read how her life with Joe turned out, LOL! I've already got another one in the works, of course. If only it was this easy to make money from them. That will definitely be my New Year's resolution.

Hope everyone's Christmas went well. It was like 60 degrees here so it was hard to get into the spirit. I didn't exactly want snow, but 60 degrees!! My girls love their lap tops and mommy likes having hers all to herself, ;)

Hubby got me a new ring, the one that I wanted. Also got the 3rd season of Smallville and an organizer for all my scrapbook stuff. Got some new sweaters and candy from my sisters and mom got me one of those memory foam pillows. Slept great last night. All and all it went well.

Off to make dinner, the natives are getting restless.

MP3 players

Playing with my blog again. What can I say, I get bored. I put an MP3 player on it. It has several songs on it, pre-programmed, some of them I like, some not, but I don't feel like making a custom one, too much work involved. This is kind of neat though, visitors to my blog can choose from several songs to listen to while they visit. Give it a try. It's cool.

My girls are officially out of school as of today. I don't know what they did all day, but they didn't kill each other or destroy my house, so I guess it went okay.

My sister made me a wreath for my door, ain't it pretty? She is so talented. I told her that she should sell them. She made this one in 15 minutes, incredible.

3 days til the fat man comes. My girls are getting wired. They want their presents. They will just have to wait a little longer. Hehe!

Changing the past

Yet another end to another weekend. I finished wrapping all of my Christmas presents tonight, thank goodness. I can't believe that Christmas is almost here once again. We were watching some videos of the girls when they were small and my how time flies. One part of it was when my oldest graduated from Dare in the 5th grade (you know, the don't do drugs campaign) and she was standing next to a boy that died this past summer, goofing off on the back of a pickup truck. She looked at me and said she wished that we could go back to some moments. I knew exactly what she was thinking. She wanted to save David. I told her that things happen for a reason and that changing events would only change other events, like a domino effect. Her heart was in the right place, though. If only it were that simple. I started wondering if I could change one major event what would it be? I guess it would be the death of my father. The only problem is, it would require him to quit smoking and even if I told him it would eventually kill him, he was the type of person that wouldn't quit anyway. This is going to sound harsh, but he was pretty selfish in a lot of ways. So I guess I don't know what event I would change, probably nothing since I strongly believe in consequences in doing so.

Okay, enough philosophical shit for one night. Here's my usual Sunday funny:

A professor was giving a lecture on "Involuntary Muscular Contractions" to first year medical students.

Realizing that this was not the most riveting subject the professor decided to lighten the mood slightly.

He pointed to a young woman in the front row and said, "Do you know what your ass hole is doing while you're having an orgasm?"

She replied, "He's probably down at the bar getting drunk with his friends"

Have a great week!

My daughter, the movie star!

Well most of you know about my budding young actress, Kim. She recently did an interview for the home page of the movie she was an extra in, so I thought I would post the link so you could read it if you were interested. There are pics posted as well. We are very proud of her. Check it out!

Christmas pics

Well we finally got around to taking a pic of the girls for our Christmas cards. We have been wanting to do it for a while now, but one of the girls doesn't want to do it for some reason. I made them tonight. I told them that I had to get the cards sent out BEFORE Christmas, not after. This is the one we all voted on....

Sunday, December 11, 2005


Hope everyone had a good weekend. I spent a lot of it just vegetating. I can't wait until Christmas, since I have the whole week off after it. YES!!! Of course, hubby does too, so much for being alone. Drat! Just kidding. I finished up my Christmas shopping today, thank goodness. If I had to brave the mall one more time, I may have gone insane.

For those of you that know I dabble in writing, I may be posting some of my work on an on-line e-novel site. I'll let you know. A friend of mine recommended it to me. That's how she ended up getting published. We shall see. I have to beef up my stories though. They want 40k words. OY! My longest one, not counting the trilogy, is 25k. That just means I have to learn how to bullshit in my writing. I can do it in everyday conversation, so it shouldn't be too much of a stretch. I really would like to get paid to write. That would be my ultimate goal.

I'll leave you with a Sunday funny:

Two men were talking. So, how's your sex life?"
"Oh, nothing special. I'm having Social Security sex."
"Social Security sex?"
"Yeah, you know: I get a little each month, but not enough to live on!"

A wife went in to see a therapist and said, "I've got a big problem,
doctor. Every time we're in bed and my husband climaxes, he lets out
this ear splitting yell."
"My dear," the shrink said, "that's completely natural. I don't see what
the problem is."
"The problem is," she complained, "It wakes me up!"
Tired of a listless sex life, the man came right out and asked his wife
during a recent lovemaking session, "How come you never tell me when you
have an orgasm?"
She glanced at him casually and replied, "You're never home!"

A man was in a terrible accident, and his "manhood" was mangled and torn
from his body. His doctor assured him that modern medicine could give
him back his manhood, but that his insurance wouldn't cover the surgery
since it was considered cosmetic. The doctor said the cost would be
$3,500 for "small, $6,500 for "medium,
$14,000 for "large."
The man was sure he would want a medium or large, but the doctor urged
him to talk it over with his wife before he made any decision. The man
called his wife on the phone and explained their options.
The doctor came back into the room, and found the man looking dejected.
"Well, what have the two of you decided?" asked the doctor.
The man answered, "She'd rather remodel the kitchen".

A husband and his wife had a bitter quarrel on the day of their 40th
wedding anniversary.
he husband yells, "When you die, I'm getting you a headstone that reads:
Here Lies My Wife - Cold As Ever'."
"Yeah," she replies, "When you die, I'm getting you a headstone that
Here Lies My Husband - Stiff At Last.'"

My husband came home with a tube of K Y jelly and said, "This will make
you happy tonight."
He was right. When he went out of the bedroom, I squirted it all over
the doorknobs. He couldn't get back in.

One night a 87 yr old woman came home from Bingo to find her 92 yr old
husband in bed with another woman. She became violent and ended up
pushing him off the balcony of their 20th floor assisted living
apartment...killing him instantly.
Brought before the court on charge of murder. The judge asked her if she
had anything to say in her defense.
She began coolly, Yes, your honor, I figured that at 92, if he could
have sex...he could fly.

Fantastic Chris Evans

We put up our tree this weekend. I tried to post a pic of it last night, but I couldn't get on any blogs. ??? Oh well.

We watched the Fantastic Four tonight. It was okay. The actor that played Johnny Storm (Chris Evans) is pretty hot though. Nice bod! See for yourself.

Off to watch some more of the Billboard Music Awards.
