I went to my grandparent's house today for a family gathering. This isn't a bad thing, I enjoy these things. My family is very musical, and they performed some music. My dad made a good attempt at the version of Red House that Jimi played at Woodstock. After listening to music for about 2 hours, my cousin and I did some target practice with an atlatl. After not doing too terribly well we decided to just throw for distance. My cousin is able to throw a dart as far as the length of a football field. I could only get it about two thirds as far. When our arms got tired from throwing, I sat and talked with my uncle and his flint knapping buddies. Primitive technology is really interesting to me, and I always enjoy hearing my uncle talk about it. The day went by fast.
