Gunfire on the River Banks.

HI all! I would have posted sooner, but I was helping Cora adjust and fix some pictures we took on vacation. Seems the subjects were standing under a red/pink light. It took us awhile, but it still looks yucky. A recent discovery of ours is: If it doesn’t look good in color, try black and white. We did.

I awoke bright eyed and bushy tailed this morning…well, I awoke. It was oh dark thirty…well, the sun was up and it was actually 730, but I could have slept another hour. However, our airsoft group had a meeting with the Kent airsoft group. They came all the way over here to play against us and we felt it necessary to show them a good time. Our group leader…the guy who set it up (I got him into it)…called me last night and said, “they have real ghillie suits!” I wanted to ask exactly what he called what I wear…I did not.

I got there at the appointed time…well, early. I began taking grass and weeds and putting them into my suit. It looked very much like a patch of ground that you could wear. If I stayed still, no one would ever find me…except, I have difficulty just sitting there when there are guys to shoot. They took a long time to show. We had fun. We only had two games. The guys from the West Side had some awesome weapons. My little UTG Warhawk AK-47 look alike was pathetic next to their sniper rifles and other automatic weapons. I spent $160 two years ago…these guys probably spend twice that…more, probably, every year. One of them gave one of our guys an entire gun…just gave it to him. His once vicious .45 cal was not shooting particularly well this morning and the guy felt sorry for his East Side Ass. I got plenty of compliments on my ghillie. Our illustrious leader had unfounded fears…it is hard for their green ghillies to blend into brown. I only got one guy today. I got got only once. So, odds were even for me.

Cora called about 2 to ask why I was not home at one like I had promised…I was on a river bank, pinned down by gunfire…well, I don’t think they even shot at me….

Well, Cora continues to slave over photos…J
