There's a First for Everything Part II

1. First Urban Tactical catalogue brought home. Blue drooled the whole time while reading it.
2. After perusing the catalogue, Blue started talking about a 'Go Bag'. Oh yes, he's caught the Go Bag bug.

3. I now understand why police wives joke about their cops having more accessories than Barbie. It's all starting to make sense now...

4. Blue's first target practise sheets were brought home and are now displayed as artwork on our walls. No, it was not my idea. No, I'm not happy about it. (Funny story though: Blue showed off his days work and explained how his first day at the range went. I admired his good aim and then went about my day, getting dinner ready. I happened to walk down to the basement to grab something. Something looked different. My content expression slowly turned into a look of disgust as I realized the sheets had been pinned onto our basement walls...right beside our TV...and we had people coming over! I walked back upstairs to ask Blue to take them down and explain that, 'no, target sheets are NOT artwork'. As I got into the kitchen The Boy zoomed passed me while frantically yelling, "Mom, where's my police gun!??!" Soon after I hear him yelling "POW-POW" while practising his aim. Blue wouldn't take them down. Ugh.)


  1. Target sheets as artwork...my husband has tried that a time or two! Saw your blog listed on "a police wife"-you do a great job! :)

  2. We have at least one framed human silhuette targets...maybe two and more that are hanging around ready to be framed. I have to admit I think I've kept one or two from the range that I've shot up myself.

    It sounds like JR and Blue really should never meet. They are two peas in a pod and by the end of it I'm sure JR will have have Blue needing about 200 more items for his Go-Bag and Blue will have convinved JR that he needs another 12 Go-Bags himself. I'm sure we have at least 3 already.

  3. i thought they were quite lovely.
