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.)
Moving 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.
