Stix n Brix
I just got home from my last night qualification at the range. That feels good. I had carried my large city-issued flashlight, and one of the range instructors told me that I could bring the smaller light next time. I grinned and said there won't be a next time. He was surprised and congratulated me for making it through. I do still have the spring qualification but that's during the day. It's a nice outdoor range. I don't remember my scores, but they were somewhere in the 90's as usual. I've gotten a 100 only once, but I've also made below 70 once so had to redo the course. I carry a .45 Smith& Wesson M&P. It's a nice light-weight gun. I'm glad it's my retirement weapon. It's the fourth one issued during my career. I was talking with some of the younger officers there who laughed when I said the first gun was a revolver. We have better equipment now than we've ever had.
We miss the MH. She is still at Gregory Poole getting the brake recall work done. I got a call saying that three of the rotors were damaged and had to be replaced. Workhorse will pay for it, so that's a good thing. We may not get it back in time to go anywhere next week during my time off, but I just want them to do a good job so we can enjoy it one more time before winter hits.
I got word this week that my schedule will change probably in February, so I will loose that week off every month. I've worked that other schedule before and hate it. You feel like you're working all the time. Luckily, I would only have to endure it for 6 months or so. Things don't bother me as much now that I can see the light at the end of the tunnel. Well 4:30am will be early, so I'm off to bed.
Thanks for dropping by, and enjoy each day of your life's journey by finding beauty in the ordinary.
