~Back home, I made a Roseburg Hat in Ivory/Plumberry/Avocado. Yes,like the one I just sold in the picture, but it is a very popular style/color & I alsways change the colors on the flower pin so the hat is still one-of-a-kind.
~Mom called & we talked for about an hour.
~I made Mike a couple of PB/AB wraps. Cstco didn't have the sammies last time Mike went,so now we are eating the thinner,flat-bread style wraps. They are still tasty.

~At work, I printed/folded/stuffed bulletins. 16 bag were given away at the Food Pantry. Fr. Jim showed me how to update the website, mainly the calender & worship pages. He also approved the time off(made up on other days) for draw class at the end of the month!
~I dropped off Ginger Coconut Bars for the Napa Boys.
~Date Night: We did drills a little out of the ordinary. After warmup, we shot 2 to the body/1 to each hip(to put someone down), 1 to hip/2 to body/1 to head(as if allwe could see of the bad guy was his leg), both drills with reloads. We then went down range,got a short lesson of close-in fighting(using angles,distance & hand-to-hand/knife fighting to gain an advantage before shooting). We then did pivot shooting(standing side-ways to the target & turning just the upper body & standing with back to the target & pivoting on foot to face target). So much to learn!
