In April I took my mom shooting for the very first time ever (she is 67).  She did really well.  She now wants to join the NRA and the Michigan Militia.

In June I flew to Tulsa to drive back to Detroit with my mom.  I decided to shave my beard.  Here are the "before" pictures.

We stayed in a hotel called the Hendersonville Inn.

The lobby of the Hendersonville Inn was filled with photos of country and western singers.  However, somewhat mysteriously, there was also a photo of Lieutenant Colonel Oliver North.  I inquired with the innkeeper what the picture of Ollie was doing mixed in with country and western singers.  The innkeeper--who seemed to be Indian--indicated that they had purchased the hotel a year or so back and all of the photos came with it from the previous owner.  I was apparently the first person who pointed out the Oliver North was not a country and western singer.
