Here is the real “Congratulations on graduating post” for my sister @jennaman8 . Besides doing great in school and being first author on your research paper, I want to use these pics to point out the obvious fact that you are way better than me. In the first pic, my dog, who I spend all day and all night with, getting up several times throughout the night to take her outside spends one day with you and already likes you more than me. Dogs are the best judges of character and Riley isn’t wrong. In the second pic, Dean Brady was super excited to see you and didn’t give a 💩 about seeing me (ok, that might be because I dropped his class though). Either way, way to go, it’s only the beginning for you - you are the most genuine and empathetic person I know and I strive to learn by your example so that I may, one day, be as good of a person as you are today.
A great weekend of instruction from @ernest.langdon combined with some pretty ugly weather. Learned a lot, made a lot of mistakes, but also did some good stuff. The hat was won with a 5.64 second perfect 100 run on the 10x10 drill from concealment in the cold/rain with a scattered dot due to a water droplet on the emitter. What I had learned seconds before in consistent and strong grip is what saved me on that. The pin is technically a “win” for the harder drill, but to me, it was a failure as I fell short of the more important standard. Always more work to be done and can’t blame the conditions for that one. Thanks to @deathblossom6 for keeping me safe and staying with me in that seedy Emporia motel. It’s a pleasure being on the line with you, you don’t let me overthink things and force me to be better. Awesome meeting @rboyer235 too, what a genuine guy.
@db_boon truly practiced what he preached. They are just tools, learn how to use them well and figure out how to work around the issues. Boon might not call himself a hero, but don’t let him fool you, he certainly is. It was awesome to see his respect for @cttsolutions and to incorporate the rabbit drill. By the way, I smoked my partner even when I was on the reaction side. #13hours
