    Talking My gift at a recent wedding....

    A good friend of mine got married last year. As he is originally from Ghana, he has had little experience with firearms. All of his shooting has been done with me. I bought a nice pump action 12 gauge so that they would have a decent home defense gun. You should have seen his eyes light up when they opened the box.

    He is still in shock that he is the legal owner of a firearm. It is so sad to me that the (legal) immigrants to this country are often more appreciative, as well as outspoken, about the liberty that they enjoy here.

    Now that is what I call a real present.

    The LEGAL immigrants, who are always welcome in our country, are more appreciative and outspoken about the freedoms that they enjoy here because, unlike us, they had to work for their U. S. citizenship and, more likely than not, came from countries were individual freedoms were supressed. We, on the other hand, were born into our U. S. citizenship and, unfortunately, have taken our Constitutional freedoms for granted. Now we find ourselves having to fight our own government (at the voting booths, at Tea Parties and at the offices of our congressmen/women) in an attempt to be heard. Unfortunately, it is very apparent that Washington isn't listening...doesn't care what the majority of the citizenry want them to do. Don't know where the current political and economic atmosphere will ultimately take us but I don't have a good feeling about it!

    Thanks for all the well wishes folks. Will pass them onto her ASAP. We do have some very precious freedoms that were fought, bled for, and died for. Now it seems the torch may be passed to us to keep them.

    Cherish every moment, kn...the years fly by. But, when our kids grow up to make lives of their own, they give us grandchildren. I've learned that every decade of life holds a sweetness of its own!

    Yes I did. They are an age where calling them beautiful would make you suspicious and my wife jealous. So, I will simply say... yes, yes I did.
