I'm a "Sharp-Shooter!"

This morning, I got a call from the nursing home, wondering if I would come in and do a "P1"---the first half of the PM shift, or the 3:30 to 9:30 shift. As it's very wet here and there's not a lot to be done until things dry off, I told them I'd do the P1 shift and then, if they didn't find a 3:30 person, I'd switch over to those duties at 6:30. However, "They" did find a 3:30 to 9:30 person, so once 6:30 rolled around, I was free to go home. :) I was glad too, as it was so lovely outside tonight! After a quick supper, we all went out to do the chores and to round up our 5 remaining geese for someone who said they were coming to get them today (and that person never did show up and now we're wondering if it was a prank call, due to the strangeness of the several calls we got from this person who kept seeming to be lost all over the state today....).

After chores were done and the greenhouse was closed up for the night, Dad and Andrew agreed to help Jacob and I sight in our new rifles. Andrew grabbed some AQTs and a blanket to lay on and we headed for the large square straw bales to set up our targets and to do some shooting. With our new guns, after quite a bit of sighting in with our scopes, Jacob and I both met the Sharp-Shooter qualifications, which we were very excited about, as we had both only mastered the "Marksman" level before! Now to practice some more so as to be able to be a "Rifleman!" Thanks again, Andrew, for the wonderful presents..... Do you need any more chores done? ;)

Congratulations on achieving sharpshooter status! That is quite an achievement. I'm so sorry you are receiving prank calls about your livestock. That must be a bit frightening.

I do hope things dry out a bit for you. Have a nice week! :)
