Not Much Progress...

...Because Boots 'n' Shoots.

For all those who are not from the DFW area, Boots 'n' Shoots up here is a charity event to benefit our military veterans.  The restaurants I work for are really involved in it and provides the meals for the skeet shooting day as well as other things like volunteers from our restaurants and accounting office.

This year I got to go and help on Thursday.  The shooting portion I volunteered for took place at the Dallas Gun Club.  It was a really fun, if exhausting, day.  I got to meet some wonderful people, learned a lot about how to call skeet shooting scores and remembered that I'm over forty and not used to spending nine plus hours on my feet.  I was at a station with two of the waitresses from our Arlington Babes and they were fresh as daisies at the end of the day while I was ready to fall over.  Oh to be twenty again.  Or at least have my twenty year old body again.  I worked in food service back then and standing for twelve hours was just what I did.  Of course I also weighed about a hundred pounds less.

I only got a little bit sun-burned and when I got home I didn't do anything for the rest of the day.  I barely got up on time for work on Friday.  I feel like I'm still recuperating today.  So I'm going to dye my hair, relax and plan for my three day weekend coming up.

Hope everyone else has had a great and productive weekend!

    1. Oh yes, gone are the days when standing for twelve hours at a time is no big deal.

  3. I think that it is Marvelous that you took time out of your busy schedule to volunteer your efforts towards helping your military veterans- Time Well Spent;
    and dying your hair is a good way to reward yourself afterwards too! ;P
