My Wish Came True

At least one wish did come true, the one about having nicer weather.  I am still waiting on the ones for winning the lottery and world peace.

I was able to get a lot of my annual yard work completed Sat. After picking up a cart full of limbs and branches the recent high winds deposited around my front and back yards.  I then used my Cub Cadet mower on the next to the lowest cutting level to even out the grass prior to applying the spring weed & feed fertilizer application. My final lawn prep was the application of granulated insect preventer. I really enjoy my riding mower with the assortment of lawn attachments that makes lawn work easier and quicker. I finished up the day's work by activating the lawn irrigation system.  I always drain the pump  and lines in Nov. to prevent possible cold  weather  damage.  I set the system for 45 minutes and watered in the lawn fertilizer I had applied earlier.

Sunday I replaced the pontoon's cranking battery but did not use it.  I may take Judy out today though. Judy opted to stay home Sunday but I wanted to go to the nearby gun range.  I arrived there at 3:45 and it was crowded. I had not been to a range in six months. I fired three sets of five shots to warm up. My final set was 15 rounds of rapid fire with my Glock 9mm Gen4.  When I fire a hand gun I set the target at 27-30 ft. I was pleased that I put 12 of 15 rounds in the 8in. diameter black area of the target. within 45 seconds.

That's all for now. Thanks for stopping by.
