Happy Hump Day!
Happy Hump Day!

Yesterday’s totty was, as mentioned, due to a short-notice trip from Salt Lake City to Boston, in Sunday evening, back Tuesday morning.  Too quick to see anything in Beantown; there’s a lot of history in the area that would be interesting to view.  Breed’s Hill, the old Boston Common, the Old North Church, and so on.   I can’t abide the predominant politics of the Boston area, but there’s still a lot of American history in the area and one day I hope to have a better look around.

Not this time.  But the current project should have me back in Boston a few more times before we’re done.  (Also such places as Montreal, Guadalajara, Toledo, Los Angeles, Reynosa and Dallas.)

Before the story of the day, thanks once more to The Other McCain for the Rule Five linkery!

TrapshootMoving on:  I think I need one of these.  A real, effective live bird simulator that tosses clay birds on unpredictable paths could be a lot of fun.  Much as I love a few good rounds of 16 yard trap or a spot of sporting clays, the birds in both games fly in known arcs.  A more unpredictable clay-tosser may be more realistic practice for live birds.

Of course, good shooting technique is good shooting technique – and no matter how unpredictable the thrower, it can’t completely simulate the powered flight of a live bird.

But it would still be fun.
