    Well, I had purchased the 1st 7 seasons of SG1 - but I sold them earlier this year - I'll admit that I did use the $ for a gun. I love SG1 - and still watch it every week. But, I just never got around to watching the DVDs. They just sat there. So, I figured, why not...

    I do own all of the Highlander DVDs, though, and I don't plan to sell those. I love the show too much. A new Highlander movie called "The Source" SHOULD be out around Christmas - itw as filmed last year. Has the cast from the tv show. It is possible that it may go straight to DVD, but I don't know yet....

    I took my son hunting for the very first time in his life...to be honest we didn't think he was the type of kid that would get into hunting (I was actually worried how he'd react to actually seeing animals harvested)...boy were we wrong, the smiles say it all; and for never shooting at anything in his life he knocked down 8 doves, 6 all by himself with single shots from a .410 his granpa brought him yesterday. Now he can't wait to go duck hunting with me...who'd a thunk it yesterday??? I'll remember this day for the rest of my life, spending time with my son outdoors, how excited he was, passing on our heritage and tradition to the next generation, discovering a brand new hunting buddy I never knew I had...

    Man how cool is that. My son shows little signs of wanting to hunt or even go to the range. He is 7 about to turn 8 here in a few days, but since I have been buying up training pistols for holster molds he has been perking up when I get in a new one , he wants me to show him how to draw and aim, so there is hope.

    Dad was very proud and very impressed...my son is 9 and he was semi-interested in the ducks I brought home, but seemed to care less about actually hunting...he's a take it or leave it kind of kid, never really gets excited about anything, he's been thru baseball, swimming, track, never really cared much for any, just likes school and video games...I sure was surprised today. On the way home he started talking about wouldn't it be cool if his little brother (20 months) liked to hunt too...I was blown away, I've never seen this kind of interest from him about anything before...I told him as long as I'm still around we would all hunt together.

    Well, invited my parents to dinner to celebrate my mom's 67th birthday. Ended up barbecuing.

    Singed the hairs on my right hand and arm when the fireball erupted on the pit. I always time it right and back off in time. BUt, the wind blew right when I lit it, and I had no time to move before WOOOSH!

    I'm fine :P - But, it surprised me. Lucky, no singed eye brows

    Nothing like that kind of quality time with your kids. My son never had an interest in hunting or guns. I let him shoot my Glock once and it roared so much I think it scared him. He does love fishing though.

    Give that man a dollar. I really love teaching the next generation about hunting and the great outdoors.

    Don't be fooled. He's only 5

    Not necessarily in that order
    Well, went to the range yesterday, just got back from the gun show, watching the Browns/Bengals now, yard work after the game, followed by consumption of beer watching the Redskins/Cowboys tonight. Won't cook out today because my wife is making some shrimp pasta thing that my daughter likes.

    The gun show was a good trip. Saw an FN 9 pistol I've been thinking about; it turns out to be a LARGE pistol that's a little too big for my hands. The FN 9m may be a better fit but they didn't have one there.

    I did see 4 or 5 handguns I really wanted. I settled for 2 Colt Cobras, a cherry 4-inch and a nice 2-inch that will be a good carry piece when we move somewhere I can do that. I'll post photos when I pick them up.

    If I had the dough, there was also a nice 4-inch Colt Lawman and a new Sig Mosquito with a threaded barrel.

    My wife sez I've used all my gun money until next March.

    Part of being a Browns fan is you can't stop being a Browns fan, no matter how miserable they are. I can't count the number of times they've broken my heart.

    I guess it gets passed down from generation to generation...I distinctly remember my dad, after "the Drive" (or some other monumental disapointment, there's so many) going out into the driveway, can of gasoline in hand, taking off his Browns jersey and burning it for all to see while lamenting that they always let him down...I guess I didn't learn
