I hate being sick

I’ve been sick for the last 4 days.  I’m just coming out of it, but I’ve coughed so hard, I’ve aggravated my heart arrhythmia.  Nothing like coughing so hard your heart starts beating weird and then you get light headed.

I’m hoping I start feeling well enough I can go to the range in the next few days.  I want to take my time and put lots of little holes in a target.  I plan on taking my time and seeing just how close I can get the holes to be.

It’s actually very calming when you try to shoot as accurately as you can.  You have to regulate your breathing, and consciously feel your heartbeat and to shoot squeeze the trigger very slowly in between heartbeats when you are at the bottom of an exhalation.

While you are also holding your sights in proper alignment on the target.

I take the boys with me usually, because they like to shoot the clay pigeons we set out on the backstop berms.  Hitting a 4 inch round clay from 25 or 50 yards with iron sights isn’t that easy if you don’t take your time and do it right.

But it is very relaxing, because your are forced to take your time and do it right if you want to break the clay.

I’m hoping now with the election out of the way, all the foolishness will stop and .22 LR ammo will come back down in price.

I used to be able to buy a full brick of .22 ammo for under $15.00.  Now a half brick sells for over $50.00.  I can’t spend a day putting holes in paper when ammo costs that much.  And paper target prices are getting ridiculous as well.  I used to get a pack of 10 targets for $1.25, now the same pack of targets costs almost $3.85.

I remember being able to shoot all day long for less than $20.00.

I really miss those days.

Once in a Lifetime

And you may find yourself living in a shotgun shack
And you may find yourself in another part of the world
And you may find yourself behind the wheel of a large automobile
And you may find yourself in a beautiful house, with a beautiful wife
And you may ask yourself
Well…How did I get here?

Letting the days go by
Let the water hold me down
Letting the days go by
Water flowing underground
Into the blue again
After the money’s gone
Once in a lifetime
Water flowing underground

And you may ask yourself
How do I work this?
And you may ask yourself
Where is that large automobile?
And you may tell yourself
This is not my beautiful house
And you may tell yourself
This is not my beautiful wife

Letting the days go by
Let the water hold me down
Letting the days go by
Water flowing underground
Into the blue again
After the money’s gone
Once in a lifetime
Water flowing underground

Same as it ever was…
Same as it ever was…
Same as it ever was…
Same as it ever was…
Same as it ever was…
Same as it ever was…
Same as it ever was…
Same as it ever was…

Water dissolving…and water removing
There is water at the bottom of the ocean
Under the water, carry the water at the bottom of the ocean
Remove the water at the bottom of the ocean

Letting the days go by
Let the water hold me down
Letting the days go by
Water flowing underground
Into the blue again
Into the silent water
Under the rocks and stones
There is water underground

Letting the days go by
Let the water hold me down
Letting the days go by
Water flowing underground
Into the blue again
After the money’s gone
Once in a lifetime
Water flowing underground

And you may ask yourself
What is that beautiful house?
And you may ask yourself
Where does that highway go to?
And you may ask yourself
Am I right?…Am I wrong?
And you may say to yourself yourself
My God!…What have I done?!

Letting the days go by
Let the water hold me down
Letting the days go by
Water flowing underground
Into the blue again
Into the silent water
Under the rocks and stones
There is water underground

Letting the days go by
Let the water hold me down
Letting the days go by
Water flowing underground
Into the blue again
After the money’s gone
Once in a lifetime
Water flowing underground

Same as it ever was…
Same as it ever was…
Same as it ever was…
Look where my hand was
Time isn’t holding up
Time is an asterisk
Same as it ever was…
Same as it ever was…
Same as it ever was…
Same as it ever was…
Same as it ever was…
Same as it ever was…
Same as it ever was…
Yeah, the twister comes
Here comes the twister
Same as it ever was…
