A WEEKEND WITH MOM

Hi Everyone!

I sure hope all of you had a nice weekend. OK so it isn't quite over with yet. On Thursday Mike and I drove down coast from Florence to Brookings, OR. Then cut over inland to my mom's. It was the perfect day for that. The sun was shinning most of the time. (RARE for the coast. LOL) We made a few stops and just took our time. It was great!!! Mom always has nice hot sunny summers so I was in a bit of heaven there. We did the normal things like shopping, hair cuts and some art. On Saturday we put "Games of Thrones" in the DVD player and went through boxes of old photos. Some treasures for sure. These two are dedicated to my friend Daggi waaay over there in Germany. We share the love of archery so I thought I would post these.

Don't quite know what that stance is but I do remember we all ate grouse for dinner. Yum Yum
Wish I still had those baggy clothes.


 My Nan was 83 years old and still going strong. She made some pretty decent shots. My Nan passed a few years ago at the age of 104. She is still my inspiration.

  2. Miss Nicole, you made my day with those pics! But how on earth could you shoot with this shirt? I would have wound myself around the bowstring with that. *LOL* You and your nan look fab shooting! Thanks for sharing!

    Carol, almost no strength needed, as there are bows with loooooow draw weight available. We all were beginners once!

  3. Carol this is a traditional recurve bow and does require a bit of strength. However there are bows now that the pull is very minimal these are compound bows.
    I am a traditional girl though.
