for you who dont know - we have an "aamature trap association" ATA they are far from amature , they are where our olyimpians come from , they are the best of the best in all of our states - each state has its chapter , and region and so forth , we are in minnesota that means our chapter is MTA , way more info than is required for my discussion here except to say our major shoots are important and we do have some of the best in the country ..........just sayin , 

we had a great shoot this year , record attendance/participation , and i will add that the after parties were the best we have had in years , i cannot say enough good things about minnesota trap shooters , ours are the best , a lot of work [which i need to rethink next year as im approaching 70 and starting to feel my age] these long weekends are starting to wear me out , it says a lot to say im going to work tomorrow to rest up from the weekend ..........i think , but it is the truth ,

i love what i do but im getting to the age that i have to "pick and choose" im going to miss this crazy fun we have during and after the shoot , every event , we have five every year , i love it but i think , i think im wearing out , i cannot stand as much , or sit as much , or even stay up with the rest of them anymore , 

i know that every hole in society gets filled - when a key person goes away - life goes on , no one is replaceable , i think this may be the year that i leave a small hole for someone to fill - i will transition with training if asked and aid till all are content , im just feeling worn out tonight - it was a long weekend after a long work week and im looking at another long week , im getting old - yes , i admitted it - im no longer a young , vibrant , virile........................

............all i need is a twenty year old young lady with an active mind ...............

Do you ever get the feeling that time seems to accelerate as you get older?
I feel as if each year goes by quicker than the last and seem to get less done; not sure if it's because I'm getting older or because my 6 year old daughter is asorbing more of my day!
Feels like the water going down the plug hole; spinning faster the closer you get to the end!
It's nice to be important, but it's more important to be nice!
