Congrats to the girls, Blake, and you and Rebecca as proud parents!
very, very cool.
just heading out for a run, and hope the hunters don't get me... or Tucker.
It's not the NH boys I worry about. It's them dang Massachusetts city
folk that come up here in the "wilds" and shoot at anything that moves.
People here know how to handle firearms, and though they use them
regularly for purposes other than hunting...
(ie... New Years eve, July 4, when the Red Sox win, when the Pats win,
when their kid scores in Jr. High soccer, groundhog day, etc. etc.)
they DO generally know how to handle them when it really counts.
Live Free or Die !
