Skeet Shooting



For the first time in nearly three years, I headed back to Grand Rapids, MI for a little Thanksgiving action. It was a great time to take a break at the office, and it is the first time I have been at an American Thanksgiving in 8 years. It’s surprising how much you grow to miss a holiday like that; they have a Canadian Thanksgiving, but it’s a considerably more subdued affair. The whole week went over very well, with the exception being the deterioration of my shooting ability. It’s something that requires a great deal of practice for proficiency, and mine has been lacking lately.

Now that we are past Thanksgiving, it is safe to break out the Christmas tunes, so that’s what’s on the list at the moment. Bing Crosby is still truly excellent, even after all these years. It’s frightening to think that we are again this close to another Christmas, but I am looking forward to it. I have the most time off this year that I have had in a long time for the holidays, and I plan to put it to good use. A friend of mine at church has gotten me genuinely intrigued in backcountry skiing, so perhaps I’ll find some utility in this coming winter season after all.
