But last night, at the monthly meeting, my gun club members gave me a lifetime membership and an award plaque for service and leadership.
I was floored. Seriously. So much so that I could not form words to say "thank you" properly for a while.
I'm not sure that I deserve it, but they all seem to think that I have given outstanding service. I just try and keep the club going, and pay it forward with work and by doing classes for new shooters and such. After all, I get to use the club that others before me built.... Keeping the tradition going so that the club and the facilities will be there for the next generation. I didn't think that I was doing anything special...... But the other members all congratulated me and felt that I have earned the reward.
It was pretty cool.
A REALLY nice ending to a day that didn't start well.
