Went on my interview today, will hear more Thursday, wish me luck.

Have just finished reading Dies the Fire by S.M.Stirling and started on the sequel, The Protector's War. It makes me bitter* for my old recurve bow that is still 'lost' somewhere in my parent's basement. They have a PILE of old things down there that stands 8 feet tall and about 10 feet wide -- I had to climb up to the top of it to get some books and a globe last time I was there... but no sign of my bow anywhere and I didn't have time to go through more than the top layer :( Mark says he has a recurve somewhere in his old house as well - that I could try shooting.

bitter because when I left for Fargo I put it safely in the corner of an upstairs closet and said I'd be back for it... and now it's *maybe* in the pile downstairs, maybe gone... *sigh* I was pretty good with it in Grand Rapids during our archery classes at the college.

What college? I lived in Grand Haven for most of my life. Small world!

Grand Rapids, Minnesota ;) I think Grand Haven is Michigan? GR, MN is a small town on the Iron Range where I grew up and spent a few years at the Itasca Community College before heading out to Fargo, North Dakota.

My cousin Rob gave me the bow when I was in high school. It was a light target recurve with a 35 lb draw but I miss it. It wasn't allowed in Fargo city limits (I lived in an apartment) so I had my parents keep it for me. They still had it up to the time I moved to Tennessee -- when it mysteriously disappeared. :(
