licensed to carry

Brian and I went to the courthouse yesterday and applied for (and received) our license to carry firearms. Interestingly, there were three other people there at the same time, doing the same thing. So, apparently just about everyone in Cambria County is packing heat. I was not expecting to have to wait in line to do this, but I guess that says something about the county we live in.

We also changed our voter registration from Democrat to independent. Given the gun thing, you probably thought I was going to say Republican, but I can assure you that will never happen.

While in town, we made a stop at the Cambria County Solid Waste Authority in order to drop off some items for recycling. Among other things, I had a boxful of CFL light bulbs. Those things don’t last any longer than regular light bulbs and besides being more expensive, you can’t even throw them in the garbage. Terrific.

Since we took the day off work to do all of this stuff, we treated ourselves to lunch at Everyday Gourmet & Fine Food Merchant. I’ve been wanting to go there since I first heard about it. We both had a soup and sandwich combo. My soup was quite good–French onion. The sandwich was good, too, but nothing special. It was a turkey, bacon, and Swiss. I will probably try something more adventurous if we go there again.

On our way home, we made a stop at the gun store in Richland and Brian bought a new gun (yay, tax refund!). We can hardly wait for the weather to break so we can go target shooting again.
