Just A Little Bit of Life

I sorta meant to write something today but it just kinda didn't happen. I have been expending a lot of blog energy getting ready for some upcoming time away. All the posts I have been scheduling have sapped me of ideas.

I have really enjoying being back in the gym. Wish I could spend an hour and a half there every day but just 20 minutes makes me feel a lot better. Also ditching the sugar in my morning coffee is helping. Working to eat more vegetables also, especially the fresh ones.

Today I got a box full of Spencer books in the mail. Opened one up and read most of it over a couple hours with 2 beers, a good dinner and a scotch to wash it all down. Think I will go to the bedroom to read a couple more pages then sleep.

Are you talking about the Robert B Parker character, Spenser, PI? Great books!

Those are great books! Spencer is a great example (if not a little over the top) of a character that lives life on his own terms.
I've read all but 1 or 2 of them.

Parker's Jesse Stone books are very good as well.

Hey, don't discount the V8 Fusion. It really does have a serving of fruits and veggies and is pretty low in sodium. It also tastes pretty good. I like to take some to work for my 12 hour shifts when comfort food frozen dinners are usually the rule.

Hey: A comment to Post some other time.
My Taurus Judge is a beast! I have fired several types of rounds through it at this point. So far, I like the Federal Defense rounds in 2 1/2 inch. When fired the copper disks were 1 inch above bullseye in a 1 1/2 inch group with the remainder of the BB's placing in the 3 ring to the edge of the paper.
I just bought a box of 000 buck that has a muzzle velocity of 1250 fps. That is 4 .36 caliber projectiles at the same pace as a 9mm! I'm interseted in what group it will shoot.
In other news, the 45LC fires pretty tight as well and I was happy to see how easy it would be to reload this type of round if I had to.

When everyone disparages the Judge, I reminde them of why I bought it. It is not for 50 meter head shots (I know of only 2 or three people who would stand a chance of hitting anything at 25 meters under stress with a pistol drawn from a holster). It is a coach gun in the truest sense of the word. From my truck or from my bedroom door, this weapon would be devastating inside 10 meters. This weapon may not be the perfect fit for the pro, but it will do some nasty things with the new .410/45LC rounds coming on the market.
Lastly, it is more concealable than my Glock.

Graehaven, Yeah that is the series I am talking about.

Sheep Dawg, To make entertainment you've got to be a bit over the top.

Chadow10, I will think about that one. A Judge is more concealable than a Glock? Even the short barreled one seemed to be on a fairly big frame. Guess I would have to see both of them side by side.

I remember the old TV series: Spenser for Hire. I recall liking it at the time.

I liked the series well enough, but it got a little formulaic at times. Seems like he always conjured up a way to get into an impromptu boxing match with what ever local tough he was facing.

Have you seen the Jesse Stone movies with Tom Selleck? Pretty good, IMO.
