Looking for Something to Do This Weekend?

I recently took up two new hobbies: golf and sport shooting (i.e., Skeet and Trap shooting). On a metaphysical note, both the golf hole and the clay pigeon are about four inches in diameter. Hmmm.

Birthday Girl and Good Sport Miss Karen and I had an opportunity to get some formal (and fun) firearms and self defense training at Brick Armory, which is located in Lakewood (?). I guess "Lakewood Armory" didn't have the same ring to it. The proprietors, Milton and Jaime Rivera, both NRA-certified instructors were thorough, thoughtful [...]
