AAM's company picnic was this last saturday afternoon, and that was a lot of fun. I like my coworkers, so hanging out with them is always a good time, but this year Tim also presented us with a pretty awesome activity: archery. There's apparently a mobile service in the area that comes out with basic equipment and sets up for anyone and everyone to shoot. We did archery skeet shooting and a ball-target competition. I personally found it was very easy for me to come very, very close - but I hit basically nothing all day. Still, I haven't shot a bow in more than 20 years. It was a lot of fun, regardless. Enough that I've even wondered if there's anywhere in my yard I could set up a target.
I also enjoyed taking quite a few photos of everyone shooting. I'd brought my camera along, but didn't know if I'd use it. I don't own a lens wide enough to capture any kind of "group" event, and in the past there hasn't been much of interest to look at going on. The archery thing, however, provided a cool and interesting new subject, so when I wasn't shooting with a bow, I was shooting with my camera. Sheri commented that I was less likely to "miss" with the latter.
A quick '"here's what went on" entry, because I have another to post -
This week's been pretty good, all things told. Pretty busy work week - working on a big project.
Sheri started her new job friday and survived her first day. Yay on both counts! :-)
Friday night we had another good gaming session. I'm reallying enjoying this particular game. It's intended to be short and contained, but I like the fact that I had almost all of the scenrio mapped out ahead of time and it's a pretty good story for a game.
Saturday we went on a picnic to Sycamore Shoals and hiked around a bit after.
Today we went out on Boone lake on a pontoon boat with some people from church - spent the day tubing and swimming and generally having a good time. Even saw some people and boats in piratety garb!
