Have you ever shot a gun? There are still many people in the world who have a fear of guns which is understandable if you’ve never been around them. I grew up around guns so I don’t fear them, but I do respect them and use them wisely. I suggest taking a safety course that will teach you many things to make you feel comfortable around them. I don’t hunt, but I do enjoy spending some weekends target shooting like we did this past weekend!

Here are some links to find a safety course near you:

Last weekend we hosted a first birthday party for our cat! Yes, you read correctly-a cat’s first birthday party. It was very silly, but I think that’s why it was so much fun. We had about twenty good friends over (who were required to wear a shirt with a cat on it) that were just ready to enjoy spending some time together. Have you ever thrown a birthday party for a pet? Do you view your pet as a family member? If you don’t have a pet, remember that there are so many animals at your local shelter that are looking for a great home!
