I knew it!

Some of the gals at the ladies shooting class yesterday were actually looking for “SHADE”!  I heard one of them say “Wow, it's hot!"   I knew it!!  I knew we would soon be complaining of the heat.. Awe, but what a pleasant complaint.   It seems mighty nice to me right now but I, too, will probably be complaining about it in the future. One thing about Arizona, it can be 100 deg but step into the shade and it is much  cooler. I have never spent the summer here but I believe I could handle it, if and when I ever have to.

Ms. Pat and I have decided to let the Ruger 1911’s have a rest. We’ve decided to go back to our trusted Glocks for a while. No reason other that just something different for a while. Don’t get me wrong, we love the Ruger sr1911’s but it's kinda fun to switch to something different for a while..   Plus, it gives me a little something else that I love to do.

I have been switching our .40 Cal Glocks over to 9mm.  All it really consisted of was getting the new conversion barrels and new Magazines. They are “drop in “ barrels and require no fitting.  I did, however, have to do a lot of converting of my Dillon reloading press enabling me to switch it from loading .45 ACP to 9mm. That is all fun stuff that I enjoy doing.  On the left above is Ms. Pats Glock model 23 and on the right is my model 22.  As you can see mine is a tad larger.

The next thing I wanted to do is install some of these new “HI VIS” fiber optic front sights. This helps immensely in fast target acquisition. They are really neat! As you can see in the previous picture, both our slides have the new sights installed.

This is Ms. Pat's slide outside where the HI VIZ can pick up some sunlight. See how the front sight just seems to Light up. It's almost as if you had a little light bulb in it lighting it up.

This is mine...I chose red.  However, I can easily switch it to green if I want to. I think we are going to love these.

This is a side view.  These aren’t really night sights, as they need the daylight to make them work properly. We never shoot these at night anyhow, so that shouldn’t be a problem. We do have night sights on the guns we may have to shoot at night.  Well, I better get to loading some 9mm bullets so we can go try out these new sights.  There's a big Action Shooting Match at the range Thursday morning we have to be all ready for.

Meanwhile, Ms. Pat is keeping herself very busy working on this big, beautiful quilt. She put the binding all the way around it all by hand.  Gee, it must have been about a mile of stitching, but she finished it and Ms. Megabyte2 loves it!!

Barb, who's visiting us now, pieced the quilt top for Ms Pat last year before Ms Pat got involved in quilting and Janna put the backing on and quilted it on her Long Arm.  It's all finished now and ready to go on the motorhome bed.  Isn't it beautiful??  Thanks Barb and Janna.  We will enjoy this beautiful quilt for years to come.

Ms. Pat is now going to finish up the pillow shams, that is if she can get Ms. Megabyte2 off of them. She just has really taken a liking to this quilt. She loves to get in the middle of all of them but this one she seems especially attracted to. I guess she recognizes the beautiful work involved.

Now a little Exercise Video for you....this should get your blood circulating this morning.   I know all you Line Dancers  will enjoy it and appreciate this guy's tenacity.

Ms. Megabyte2 simply has impeccable taste. Plus she knows she looks FAB-u-lous on it.

The quilt is so beautiful. You're right it will last for many, many years.
