It was a fun day and it went all too fast (my doctor may be onto something with her theory that I have a sinus infection and haven't noticed).
Tam and I decided to go over to Eagle Creek Pistol Range -- shotguns are okay there, too, and Tam brought hers...
I had my .22 Short H&R "Trapper" and 9-shot High-Standard Sentinel (.22 LR and down), plus an old Colt .32-20 that needed to have a couple of cylinders run through it.
But I can take artsy pictures!
Eagle Creek airport was busy too, and one of the approaches takes airplanes right next to the range -- out from under the roof, you can look westward and see the little planes zooming by as they come in to land. (Worrywarts can look the geometry of this up on Google Maps -- the planes are quite safe from the partially-roofed range.)
After our range time, we washed up and headed for the delightful Public Greens, Tam's concession to my limited dining-out time (she was hungry for a charcuterie plate, and who could blame her?) Instead, she went with chicken fingers and fried green tomatoes, a treat they do as well as I have ever had this side of the Mason-Dixon line (other than at home as child). I begged a small one from her, which added to a huge sandwich and mixed-greens salad:
I didn't think I could eat all of it but each bite was better than the one before and in what seemed like no time at all, I was looking at an empty plate and wondering what happened.
We went home, unpacked and were greeted by The King Of The House.
