Young Mandy is having a peaceful day, snoozing in the warmth on the back of the couch. No rata-tat-tat-tats or Boom Booms or KABOOMS to scare the bejeebas out of her.
We live on the boundary of Joint Base Lewis Mchord, the 86,000 acre Army/Air Force Base up here in WA. Unfortunately we also live at the end that is close to the 115 or so firing ranges for the base. When the training rotations start it can sound like WW3 is about to break out !!
Regarding my previous post, even though we have deep, thick forest out the back of us, I really don't think I need to worry too much about a Big Foot infestation. The booming of the big guns has probably scared off any that are considering taking up residence in these parts...not to mention the unexploded ordnance lying around :-)
