    Well , for a bow I can just go outside ! About anywhere , just avoid the horses and dogs.......and cats ! LOL
    For a rifle or pistol I have to go about a mile and my friend has farmland. As long as I don't mess with the crop growing I have access to about 4500 acres of my choice ! There is an old rock quarry behind a field that I like as it's all flat inside and about 15 feet deep and probably 10-15 acres. No chance for bullets to go out of the shooting area. All limestone floor and just has some sandy dirt on top of the stone , so it's easy to walk on and plenty of straight areas to get out to 3-400 yards ! I practice my .30-.30 at 100 yds and my 6.5 Creedmore at 200. And a few others at shorter distances. Our state has pretty much opened up ! Mask mandates are up to each county , but most have been lifted ! I'm still carefull.

    Crazy it is.

    Nothing is organized and works as it should. Well, I have made some more wooden arrows for field bow shooting.

    I consider myself lucky that I can go bow shooting alone on about 113000 square feet of our local bow club. The Corona Decree does not forbid sport alone under the open air on a private sport facility. But that may be different in the next county, town or city. We can comply with the corona rules.

    Shooting ranges are closed in my federal state as well as in three neighboring federal states while in the fourth, shooting ranges are open with reduced shooters.

    Well, I hope that in September things will be better.

    In the morning 40°F, in the early afternoon about 70°F tonight may be 32°F. That is crazy too.

    Well, we were assured that every adult will get an offer for vaccination until the end of summer. Well, end of summer is 21. September. But with the AZ and JJ vaccin complications that I think will not hold.
    Well , up towards KC and I guess all of Kansas there is an abundance of vaccines available ! They are begging folks to come and get them ! Crazy stuff !

    As to talking animals, sigh, the crows when flying over the car port or the dormer window, they always talk to me. For some time in the year I have a couple sitting on the fence or the little bird house.

    I hope and pray that you get that tree with the power lines leading though it safely removed.

    Today we had dense fog and you could not see farther than 50m. Now we have sun with a strange looking gray blue sky.

    They're taking out a tree over the roof of the home of a lawyer. They must have insurance. Then there are the power lines....

    I am the only Texan who doesn't have a gun. I'm afraid of guns. In high school, I took the gun safety class and tried some target shooting. My dad and uncles wanted me to go hunting with them. I never got past shaking. I shouldn't own or handle a gun



    I'd probably have to stick to a bow. I had a hip injury in high school. I could only take swimming or archery as my gym class. I used to be halfway decent. They're kind of hard to stick in the purse tho', lol.


    Ches, don't even mention trees. I've been trying to get a tree taken out. It has power lines through it. I found a company that had the right training and equipment. But, I've been having trouble getting proof of insurance from them.

    I have a back up company, but I'm not super comfortable with them. They came in far too low on the price.
    I do not know whether my tree guy has insurance or not. I sure hope so.

    My cat and two feathers’ dog talk to me a lot and I talk to them. They tell me that the Creator sure makes beautiful chiweenie dogs and tortoiseshell tabby cats. We had three big dead trees cut and removed because a small one fell the other day and did not hit the house, but we sure heard it. It was in range of the house lol. It missed the chain link fence too. It sure is a loud spooky sound. That got us thinking about tge three other huge trees. Kentuckians tend to put things off, I am sure glad that one of those rotten trees did not land on us driving up the long drive or sitting in the bedroom. Thank you, creator, for the smaller tree falling and causing us to think about the danger.

    WD, I remember my Grandfather telling me something similar to that-about the Cheyenne speaking with the animals longer. Thanks for the memory.

    OLC, I'm glad you didn't open the door. Are you the only person in Texas who doesn't own a gun? LOL! I've often wondered how animals know stuff like that. Do bad or shady people give off a different scent than nice people do?

    I still haven't even gotten shot one yet. I decided to wait until the clinic can get me into a cardiologist and get their opinion on it. I'm glad they pulled the J&J out of the line. A couple of weeks ago, a friend of mine (one of the 1st beaders I ever met who kind of took me under her wing), posted that her 23 year old son had gotten that vaccine. On Tues, he came home from work, changed clothes to go running and while he was running, collapsed and died. They are awaiting autopsy results to see if it had anything to do with the vaccine. Since this was something he did regularly, they are being thorough. I am so sad for them. He was a twin, and I'm sure his brother his lost right now.

    I'm done training-at least until someone else quits. LOL! Next week, I will be able to go back to my semi-retired lifestyle. We need to move, so that's going to be on my agenda, too. The landlord won't fix the termite damage the house has sustained, and even if she did, it's too much property to keep up with anymore. No rush right now but the hunt needs to begin.

    I'm not sure about Olivia my three legged kitten. I'm not sure whether the cat is psychic or psycho.

    Olivia was feral until 3-4 months of age. I've had her inside with me for 5 years. She has been skittish as heck. You touch her on her terms. When she wanted to rub on my leg, she'd crawl under the chair I was sitting in and silently sneak up on my ankle from behind. If I hadn't leapt through the ceiling when I felt the unexpected brush of whiskers on my achilles tendon, she's plant two quick rubs on my ankle and run. Her idea of getting close to you, used to be sticking her face in your shoe and taking a nap. And heaven forbid someone knocked on the door. Growling and hissing, she would sprint for her den in the back storage room, as though pursued by demons.

    But, since I've been home she's gotten down right snuggly. Not a Zoom meeting can pass without her squeezing into the chair behind me and climbing on to my shoulder, to purr until she drools. And she no longer runs from knocks on the door. She has learned about the FedEx delivery guy, who brings boxes of food and treats from Chewy, and her particular favorite the smoked turkey delivery man, who brings bags of BBQ from Heims. If I had lever type door knobs, Olivia would let him right into the house. However, she still regards the Amazon and grocery delivery people with deep suspicion. But, she will hid under the drapes, with her eyes level with the windowsill, and watch them.

    A little over a week ago, a young man came knocking at the door. He kept yelling that he needed some water for his car. When I got up to tell him to use the garden hose outside, Olivia got between me and the door. She was growling and spitting. I couldn't take a step without tripping over her. She'd nip my feet if I tried to get around her. She wouldn't let me through the TV room door into the front of the house. Then I heard him try the front door to see if it was locked. I hit the test button on the fire alarm and he ran off.

    A couple days later there is a piece on the news about a man knocking on doors pretending to have car trouble. Once the door was opened, he'd force entry into homes and rob them. I have no idea if it was the same person, especially since the robberies where clear across town. But it was creepy.

    I'd like to say the cat is smarter than I am, though I wouldn't have opened the door just yelled through it. But she pulled the same performance with a colleague trying to drop off my multimeter, oscilloscope, and a malfunctioning stepper motor controller. (Yes, my job description is "whatever the boss needs done.") While he's occasionally annoying, he isn't dangerous.
    The Cheyenne legends tell us that we (The Cheyenne) spoke in council with the animals longer than any of the other tribes ! With that said , I can attest that you should always listen to the animals !In my years of driving all over the countryside laying brick and repairing buildings I would often leave early in the dark to reach my destination on time in the mornings. I can't even count how many time a Red Tail Hawk or a Barred Owl has swooped down in front of my truck and I would slow down and miss Deer running across the road. Had I not slowed or not paid attention I could have hit them and crashed . Our horses tell us when something is out of place or if strangers are about ! Our dogs can tell us if a person is good or bad and always let us know. Our cats are the same way ! Animals know and sense things that we no longer pay attention to.It's good you listened , maybe it was old memories that warned you ! In any case it sounds like a good decision to not open the door !
    Hope all is well with everyone ! Stay safe , stay healthy !

    Good. I am grateful things went well.

    I hope you are waiting on her hand and foot. A nice dinner brought to her on the sofa. Netflix and the remote in reach. (No compensation was received for the preceding statements.)
