Earlier in the summer one of my brothers was at our house. He pulled out his fabulous camera and started snapping pictures. Oh he captured some neat poses. I especially like this one. One of our sons loves "paint ball". For those of you who may have never heard of "paint ball", it is an activity with teams and games that uses a gun (actually called a marker) powered with compressed air to shoot a somewhat soft ball, slightly larger than a marble, which is filled with biodegradable paint. The paint is mostly vegetable oil. Wooohw! did you get all that?
I am very proud that he uses his paint in a responsible manner, and does not deface property that belongs to others and only uses it in designated paint ball areas. He has saved his money and across the years that he's been doing this (about 6 now) he has done a lot of research to find the best marker and supplies that he can for a price he can afford. He works and saves to support this hobby among other things.
Well, back to the photo, see the post over by the tree? That is a paint ball practice target. If you look closely, you can see a slight yellow mist where the balls are hitting the post and bursting apart. I think that is so cool, and just wanted to show you. I thought you might like to see this perspective today too.
Oh well, yes, it did make the grass yellow for a few days, but it washed away, and to have a teenage son...if that's what it takes, then I'll take yellow grass any day.
One of these times I'll show you some of the things our other son loves.
I have some target points that I'm aiming for today too. I hope I can hit them as effectively as he hits his! Uumm, no, I'm not planning to use a paint marker though!
Have an awesome day.
