Wow Time Gets Away From Me....

Well, my second blogiversary has come and gone.  September 4th, 2010 I started this little blog for no other reason than to see if anyone would really give a rat's ass about anything I had to say.

What amazes me is that I've found that I have readers from every Continent on the globe and second to the United States, Russia is my second highest page view origin!

I'm going to have to go to Russia some day when the rugrats finish school, but that's neither here nor there.  I'm thankful that people are reading!

The biggest gift that I have gotten out of blogging are the people that I have met but also the wonderful community that I am so pleased and honored to be a part of, even if it's through the web.

My youngest daughter, Bootsie, came with Kx and I to DABII, wondering what the heck we were doing meeting a bunch of strangers from the internet to go shoot guns.

I was quite pleased with her as she was engaged in conversation, and she was very attentative (at least that I saw) while listening to great stories and her interest in handling pistols seems to have heightened a bit.  She shot....  and she shot a fair amount of rounds from several types of pistols.

So where is BAR these days?

Well in spite of our spurratic posting, we are still averaging anywhere from 100-250 hits per day.  We have 1156 (plus one when this one is published) posts.  2,571 Comments (thanks everyone!), 36 followers and we are almost at 59,000 all time page views.

Not too shabby... not too shabby at all....

So once again, thank you so much for reading my little corner of the web and thank you for all that you've, as a blogging community and to those of you who don't not blog, but read, have given to me.



  1. I can honestly say this is one of the first sites I check off my reading list.
    I love reading what the pair of you have to say, and it is all the better having met you in person.
    When you or Kx59 (especially Kx) start ranting and raving and cussing, I can literally hear your voices in my head and the mental picture is icing on the cake.
    It's been great meeting every one of you, even bootsie.
    Maybe next time you're around, we can gang up on Kx and get him to try the .50 to see what it does to his lip. =)

  2. A little late to the party - but congratulations!!!

  3. As the saying goes, Happy Birthday and many more!
