Father's Day

Pretty much like every other Sunday, but the kids cooked so Belle and I laid back and watched the turmoil.  Smoked brisket, backed beans,  Ouida potatoes, garlic bread.  Pretty good fixin's.  Oh, and homemade ice cream with peach cobbler for desert.

After lunch, we loaded some cowboy ammo and went out in the backyard to try it out.  This is a .45 Colt blank brass with a CCI large pistol primer, a smidgen of Hodgdon's triple Se7en powder, and a wax bullet.  It loads and extracts just like a regular cartridge, and gives a nice puff of smoke for visual effect.

Here, youngest son Joey is getting on his cowboy.  All in all, it was a thoroughly enjoyable exercise.  All the kids have gone home, and PawPaw is getting ready for the week.
