Vacation Thoughts

As I write, I am sitting in NW Indiana, looking forward to a day in Chicago, visiting the Shed Aquarium.

The first order of business this morning, however, will be my visit to a relatively local cafe that serves Intellegentsia Coffee that I will bring back for us.

So far this has been an outrageously kick ass trip. My brother and sister came over to my parents impromptu the afternoon of the day we got in and it was just great to have them over and see them. And now that the Bamster has been in office for 6 months, I have tons of ammunition with which to convince the unbelievers in my family that he is a socialist.

Yesterday, Sunday, we went to mass at the Discalced Carmelite Monastery in town, snagged a midwestern skillet at Round the Clock, visited the park, Gayte's Ice Cream, took a neigborhood walk, and went to Cabela's in Hammond, one of my absolute favorite places around.

I saw a used Glock 37 for $400. That's the .45 GAP round. If I was in the market, I would have snapped it up. But I am pretty well set up on firearms for the moment. I do need a back up gun pistol in 9MM for the G17, but that's about the extent of my authentic needs right now. That and an upper, but it will have to wait, too.

Looking forward to the rest of the trip. It's been great. Just wanted to chime in quickly. Peace out yos.

Over and Out,

That's a nice price on a Glock, but considering I have only ever seen a box of 45 GAP one time, I would be very leery of purchasing a gun in that round. Cabela's is awesome. Apparently they are building one down near Indianapolis, which rocks. Looking forward to hanging out on Sunday.

I agree totally nice price. The GAP is a nice round, but it just hasn't caught on. I'd only purchase if I knew I could get the ammo pretty regularly.

Yeah, we are totally looking forward to hanging out too! Cabela's is utterly fantastic. I can't get enough of that place.

Anastasia this morning said in awe: "Go to BIGGGG gun stoy." Which of course meant she went yesterday to Cabela's.

Needless to say, I was very happy.
