Groupon Day for Us and Canada Day for Nephew
There were ideas of flying to Detroit and getting nephew Dave's Mustang GT convertible out of storage and then driving to a small town on the shore of Lake Ontario to spend the 4th of July with him. Unfortunately, the plan was concocted too late and the airline tickets were too expensive.
So he enjoyed the local town festival and we enjoyed one of Kathy;s Groupon days. It was overcast and chilly here, with light rain thrown in for good measure. The activity was a class on using a potters wheel and making two things to be fired. I would need a few more classes to be able to make something to keep. It was a lot of fun though and I did not need to dress up for the event.
I did not make it to the gun range this week. I had been waiting for my enhanced trigger group and it came Thursday, but lazy me did not get it installed. Hopefully, I will have it ready to go by Tuesday. It should have a smooth and light 0.6-pound trigger pull. The one that came with the gun feels like pulling a razor blade over 200 grit sand paper. And requires a standard 6-pound pull. I am amazed I was able to get 20 rounds into a 1 inch box at 100 yards with it. I have hopes of a 1/2 inch group when I get it dialed in.
I printed a coupon for a $ 25 oil change at our local Dodge dealer and will get my van oil changed tomorrow. I just do not feel confident with that oil filter on top of the engine. So for the price, let some who does it many times a day do it. They also reset the change oil indicator and top off fluids, that is worth the hassle anyway.
The next Groupon was for a new restaurant we had never eaten at and now will never go again. We were both able to eat for $11, but it was not worth much more than that anyway. They were busy, so some people must like it. Kathy seldom lets me eat out anyway and I feel I wasted my opportunity.
The camera has not failed again and I snap a few pics every day to test it. Perhaps it was a passing gremlin.
