Persistence: To continue steadfastly or firmly in some state, purpose, course of action or the like, especially in spite of opposition remonstrance, etc..
I am trying to persist.
Its not easy it seems anymore.
Took the weekend off and went to Evansville to the Appleseed shoot at Red Brush range and had a very enjoyable time despite the 40 mph winds that played havoc with our targets both days. 20+ Americans persisted over the weekend on the line to improve our shooting skills and learn our heritage. It wasn’t easy or fun a time or two when the wind kept messing us up, but we persisted and shooters improved and learned and never quit. And we had fun despite the wind.
On the way over in the New Haven bottoms we saw lots of combines, auger wagons and trucks trying to get the harvest out in that area. They were persisting. It didn’t look like it was fun in places with the soil conditions but they were making a dent in it before it rained. Having said that, the crops looked good from the road. That however doesn’t mean much this year as a lot of fields that looked good from the road haven’t been good at all.
I got started with fall tillage yesterday but got rained out. I will persist at getting it done when the ground dries out again.
I have been trying to get back in the swing some how to keep this blog more updated and relevant but I cant seem to get it done. That being said I will persist at getting back on track………..
Headed down to see what I can do to help with the radio problems at the Region HQ for the Earthquake Exercise today. A lot of people have persisted in getting this program set up for RACES/ARES to help and we continue to persist at making sure it will work if and when we need it to work.
The “to do list” gets longer every day but we persist at working on what we can when we can and getting it done.
So in honor of persistence, this blog will be labeled as “to be continued“……..
