The Superfly is no more.  :undecided



Not a wrestling fan....  watched it like one year in 7th grade. But when I did, Jimmy Snuka was my favorite.

RIP Superfly

I think my generation may had been the last, growing up in the late 70s, who believed wrestling was for real.  El Santo was a real folk hero for many in my world.

Gene Cernan has also passed, last man to walk on the moon. 

There aren't too many of them left. Six of the twelve are still alive.

2017 is starting out good. I finally got a membership to the range I wanted to get into.

The range has 4 trap/skeet fields, 5 stand, 50/100/200 yard rifle, 4 pistol pits and dedicated plate racks. This is the place I can get to in 35min just passing one traffic signal. Looking forward to actually being able to practice again.

They still come in handy when the batteries run out and you need someone to pick you up.

Balls McMahon in the latest issue of Front Sight!


And of course a large photo of Joe Procoprio, but he's been in there before, even the subject of an article.

Time to reconsider a national match at lipsa .... Or at the very least move the berm to 600 yards at the now 200 yards pit.  If we can only do one I'd say the latter :somb4

Hey you want to feel young forever -- don't have kids.

Yesterday morning, as I walked towards my burro to drive my daughter to school, I could not stop shivering.  I got in and my daughter says ..."I don't understand why old people always complain about being cold" ... I looked at her and it took me a few seconds to realize she just called me OLD PEOPLE.  I swallow my pride and I turned on the radio.

Last night I was watching a really good show on Netflix called the 60's ... Particularly how people feared that too much TV watching could be harmful to our society.  But it also made the case for how helpful it has been in how tv linked all of us and showed us how people lived in other parts of the country.  Then the advent of color TV and how that was just amazing.  Then I remember growing up watching black and white TV all the way up to 1977.  then We got a color TV at home and wow... That was awesome.  I think we may had been the first family in the Village who had one.... Then I realized that for kids who can watch tv on the palm of their hands, get mail through it, telegram their friends on the fly and even talk to them all in the same device; the 60's and 70's must look like the 30's to me. 

Yep, I am now officially OLD.

Now, when it comes time to do chores around the house, remind your kids it's now they're responsibility to do those chores. You're too old now for all that work.  :wink
