Good morning Princess and friends! Today, I go for my pre-op appointment. It's this afternoon at 1:00. Not as much pain today....yet! If I keep typing though, well, you know! My surgery is 2 weeks from Thursday. I can't wait to get it over with.
Rotor, I think next season, I'm going to cheer for Ricky Stenhouse Jr. He's starting full time with Rousch driving the #17. He's the Nationwide Champion and I'm a big fan. We'll see!
Y'all have a wonderful day! Hugs, Hearts and turkeys!
I'm so glad it's coming up! Maybe they'll give you good pain meds today, too. Let us know how it goes.

Ballistis tip: Sight in scope for approx. 1"-1 1/2" high @ 25 meters on a target 1"w X 2"h with a center mass hold,and you should be close to dead on for 200 meters. The important thing will be your deflection(left/right impact),the elevation is an easy fix. AFTER sighting in @ 25 meters THEN fine tune for your extended desired range.

You mean you can't just point it like binoculars and twist the doohickey until the target comes into focus? What kind of complicated gadget is that?

I'm back from my appointment and everything looked good from what I can tell. I did find out that I've shrunk a 1/2 inch! >gasp!< I'm only 5'1 1/2. Coulda sworn I was 5'2! Anyway, BP: 128/84, chest x-ray was normal as was the ekg. Don't know about the blood work, but I'm sure it's fine too. Now, I just wait until Dec 6th.

Hello Oki!
Very complicated if you aren't familiar with scopes. They not only focus on a target they also allow adjustments that compensate for bullet drop. Bullet drop is detirmined by bullet weight,velocity/powder charge,range among other variables. Yeah,it can be complicated.....

eh?????
I have no interest in Bio but I'm getting straight A's so I like the padding my GPA.

I took Art History because I know it and same for getting A's and GPA.

Calc II is Calc II. I have to get through it and My Prof said today I look like I'm around a B, so I'm happy with that.

It's been a pretty lax semester so it's all good.

Now you tell me. I had a tough time getting it tuned in. This scope is like military. You set at 100 yards and have rings below for 200, 300, 400, 500. I kept over adjusting the darn thing.Spot on now :) This 270 isn't as tight as my other guns. I have a 7X57 Mauser with a Douglas barrel that is a tack driver but I am going to put better glass on it if I can get a marked down Leuopold black Friday

Good morning all. Here's hoping you have a great hump day and a super Thanksgiving Eve..... Cornbread is made, biscuits are in the oven (getting ready for dressing) Pies and cakes are baked, need to bake some cookies and more banana bread, pink cherry fluff dessert and salad will be made this evening. Then the rest of the sides and entrees for tomorrow....

Hi Rotor. You know, you aren't supposed to TELL people you have a padded GPA, you;'re supposed to keep them guessing.....
