DECEMBER 1, 2013 (Sunday)

 

Wow, December already. Time is flying by.

Woke up to sunshine! We were up and about around 8:00 AM. We went down to breakfast. They have an omelette bar here where someone makes an omelette to order for you. Nice. They also have bagels, yogurt, cereal, danish, muffins, fruit, juices, coffee, and tea. Nice selection.

We got to Tiffany and TJ’s house about 10:00 AM. Got a nice long visit with them, although Tiff, TJ, Pat, Michael and Gladius went back to the gun show again today. Michael didn’t get to go yesterday so he was kinda excited to go today. He likes that kind of stuff. Sharon, Lexi, Blade, Machaira and Falcata stayed and we just visited and watched TV until the others got home. When they did get home, Sharon and Pat got pizza for us all for dinner. Tons left over for Tiff’s family to eat on for days.

This is a 44 cal pistol.  It is strange, thin, very different than anything I have seen.

I thought about Edie for this one.  A tiny wheel gun, holds 5 rounds, overall length is less than 4 inches.

I don't go to gun shows very often.  I used to go to dealer expos for the Prison system, but that was mostly tactical equipment and weaponry.  So most of this is new to me.  Gun stocks like I have never seen before.

I shot a 50 Cal in the Army.  This is a Desert Eagle 50 Cal pistol.  I just don't think I'd care to fire this beast.

Pat and Sharon left around 5:00 PM. We stayed and got another couple hours of hugs and laughs in before we left. Hate to say goodbye, but hopefully we’ll see them again before too long. Sure love them. The kids are growing up so fast. Wish they had a stop button on them.

Goodbyes begin.

We are now back in our hotel room at the Microtel. The bed is very comfort

able. We’re hoping to be up and out by 9:00 AM. We have a long day tomorrow before we get to Kissimmee, Florida and our new “home.” That was our day. Hope yours was great!
