Mom's parents were both in law enforcement (her Mom was the Deputy Sheriff) and after being a professional pilot for both civilian folks and the government for a while, Mom entered that field when she finished her PEE-H-Dee. She said she's never done anything super exciting like on TV, said she's get sent home if she dressed like some of the female agents on the telly, and the biggest danger she usually faces is the candy machine in the lunchroom. However, she is trained in the use of a firearm in case she doesn't have an electron microscope to lob at someone's head. When she was new at it, she said she'd could likely hit a target IF attacked by a finback whale. But with practice at the local conservation club and the Law Enforcement Officer range, she got better.
She's mentioned doing her proficiency shooting, when the mail came that day. Boy did her mood change. You see, Mom got an AARP card in the mail, with another envelope from the Scooter Store (with FREE mobility assessment). Mom said "they think I need a scooter! I'm only 58! Her parents belonged to AARP and Mom said they were a fine organization but that was for OLD people.
I didn't want to be the one to remind her - but although people thinks she looks much younger, and she continued hiking, biking, and rappelling into her 50's, the theme for her high school prom was "FIRE". Just saying.
She admires anyone that can deal with using one of those on a regular basis and was so happy to give it up, working hard to get through the physical therapy.
So she was NONE too happy about the scooter advertisement and off she went that day to the range.
It was late winter, the snow had melted off but boy , Mom said it was COLD.
First, a test shot from 50 feet. I would make a comment about blind squirrels and acorns but I do want to get a treat tonight.
Then there's that membership card.
That's my Mom - putting the "O" in mobility.
