Welcome to the show.
Happy Father’s Day, One and All! Being a father is very hard, and we appreciate all those dads who are building up their children. God bless you all.
A special shout out to Birthday Boy Dave Clark!
Melanie and Jim tried in vain to find an open shooting range today. Their usual place was closed due to reduced hours triggered (if you will) by the panic over COVID. Most other ranges are closed on Sunday anyway. So we had an interlude at Battlefield Vegas (one of our favorite places to grab a coffee), deciding against shooting there this time, but just relaxing.

Wine of the week:
Brick and Vine is an exclusive to Albertsons company grocery stores (Vons, Safeway, Albertsons, etc.) Their 2017 Pinot Noir is an exceptionally good value (under $10, at least in Nevada). A very balanced wine with very little aftertaste, this would be great paired with a pesto pasta dish, savory chicken, or a sharp Cheddar.
