Must . . . try . . . to . . . keep . . . perspective . . .
In happier news ... last night, a dear friend took me out to a shooting range and taught me how to fire a handgun for the first time. We fired a variety of guns ... a .22, a 9mm, a .45, and even a .357. I've always had a great deal of respect for guns, but having actually fired them now ... my respect is much greater. (And at the end, I actually was even hitting the target pretty consistently with the .45.)
Classes start Monday (well, Tuesday for me). Augh! Gotta get assignments figured out . . .
