Cub Scout Range Master

Campguy went to the Cub Scout cuboree today. I spent the time there as a "range master" of the bb gun range. The two in the red shirts in the above picture were the other range masters. Most of the cub scouts did good shooting, but there were a couple we spent a lot of time with trying to get them hit the target.

Some of the smaller kids could not even hold the gun. I must admit one or two times I may have sniped a target or two so when they walk up to the target there may be a hole in it. I just made sure it wasn't a bull's eye.

I figured that they were young kids and today they should have fun. We did not have the time to hold class and teach them to shoot when we were running range lines every 15 minutes or so. Towards the end it was getting down right hot out there and I was more then ready to get back to campguy and relax.

James said he had fun going around to all the different activities that there were. I know can say I have been a range master. They don't have to know it was a cub scout bb gun range.

Hurricane Ike One Year Anniversary

One year ago Hurricane Ike was knocking on the door. We watched this storm develop and it was predicted to come ashore at Matagorda County. Campguy is located just North of of this area and as the bird fly's maybe 30 miles from the shore.

If it did come ashore where it was first predicted we would of probably been wiped out or close to it. Because it took the hook, we were on the clean side of the storm and the storm lost it's power before it went ashore.

Due to my "real" job I spent the night in Downtown Houston and listened and watch as the eye of the storm passed over me. It was a rough night but I made it through. The rest of my family "hunkered down" at Campguy with the grandparents at their house. It was safer because it is a single story and there is more wind breaks then at our house.

We survived with minimal damage done. This was a close call that could have been a lot worse. We know that the "big" storm can hit at any time but you have to live somewhere and no where is completely safe. So on this one year anniversary of Hurricane Ike, we give thanks that it could have been a lot worse. God bless our neighbors who wasn't as fortunate as us and God Bless TEXAS!

Labor Day in Texas

Labor Day in TEXAS equals Bar-B-Q! Just a little rib and beer can chicken. Once it was done it fell of the bone just looking at it. I hope y'all had a fun and safe Labor day Weekend.
