Once was lost, but now am found.

This will be the first post I have written in 2009. Not sure why I have not posted anything since December. There sure has been a lot going on in my life. I will chalk it down to being sick for almost a month and just not getting back to blogging here. I have been busy on TheMindOfTefft as that one is my real passion, but I do miss writing here. Since buying my Glock I have obtained a concealed carry permit and I do carry my pistol with me a lot more than I thought I would. I have taken a course on defensive firearms and have been practicing a lot. Of course I doubt if I will ever need to defend myself with the Glock but it can be a dangerous world and you cannot depend on anyone except yourself to defend against violence and crime.

In anticipation of President Obama enacting legislation that will permanently make assault rifles illegal, I purchased a DPMS Panther AR-15 rifle. It reminds me a lot of the M-16 which I fired in the Army and with which I qualified as an expert marksman. I hope to go fire the AR-15 this weekend with my brother Jon at a friends house in North Carolina. Ammunition for the AR-15 is scarce right now but my brother previously bought 500 rounds so we should have some ammo to expend.

Teresa is back working at Jeb’s Market two or three days a week. Dana has broken up with her boyfried and has moved back home until June. In June Dana will be living in the rental house that Teresa owns in Portsmouth. The family currently living there has been given notice. I have my doubts about whether Dana is responsible enough to live there but we will see. There is much more that I could write about but I think I will quit for now. Hopefully I will be able to post more often than I have the last three months.
