Memorial Day Weekend

This weekend was a busy one filled with chores and cleaning.
I finished finishing the acacia boards from the tree in my parents front yard, and now the roll-around stereo trollys are on their second legs.  It’s a vast improvement from the Circa 1980’s hideous black particle-board shelves. That was like looking into the abyss – so (only twenty years late) now we have a bright, woodsy outlook.

The WWII planes went away, up to Livermore (*cough* hey David! *cough), then out to the great California “Midwest”:

And while Bloggers were having a shooty-good time back East unloading their guns with a limitless supply of FREE munition, I whiled-away the evening watching a TV show about the struggle on June 6th at Pointe du Hoc, some 67 years ago, where a Gleaves Class destroyer with the family-name of a friend of ours stood-to with great assistance.
I was re-loading Garand clips (not magazines, oh noes!) from a CMP stash of Greek ammo that had arrived a few months ago. Head-stamps on the .30-06 loads range from Camelot to Carter, and later. 1962 to 1978, and it gave me pause to think that after all our guardianship-by-Garand and the events of Pointe du Hoc, to look at Greece today – an utter socialist shambles, sinking fast.
Intermixed was/is a small quantity of Lake City ’75 that I separate out, it will surely shoot to a different point-of-aim and belongs together in its own M1 clips.
Hope you had a good weekend, welcome Summer!

  1. DirtCrashr,

    Would you happen to know if there's any more of that Greek -06 up for sale? If it will go through a Garand it'll go through my Mossberg boltie just as well. 🙂

  2. MidwestChick – Yes it is Witchcraft! They criss-cross the US on the tour. At the moment the website schedule only shows May-June and covers CA and OR/WA. They evidently are flying north (from south).

    FHB – I'm thinking that I should have separated the Greek by headstamp too, I have a lot of '62 in one can and '68 in another…
