There are days when sitting in front of the computer and searching the internet for something to write about seems like the silliest idea in the world. Days like yesterday. It was the first sunshiney blue sky day that really felt like actual spring so I opened the windows, baked some bread, started some seeds, cleaned a little, did multiple loads of laundry and went to the store all while wearing short sleeves - even outside! And believe me, in the Cleveland area, that is truly something to celebrate.
Home alone and filling my day with things other than .coms and IMs, I still carry my gun. In an attempt to better conceal, I tried appendix carry (as suggested by Julie Goloski-Golob in a recent installment of Gun Nuts Radio.) Now I don't know if the gun is too big or if I'm too small but despite having a perfect hollow between belly and hip, every time I bent over the muzzle of the Bersa was jabbing me below the belt, far too close to delicate girl bits for comfort. So the pistol was back on my belt at 4 o'clock by the time Mike came home at 5 o'clock. He was ravenous as usual so in honor of the warm day, we had our first cookout: sweet potatoes, fresh bread, bell peppers, sweet onions...I even splurged on steak and Great Lakes Brewery beer. It all tasted like a promise of summer to come.
