I Appear As The Hero!

My 12 year-old son came down for breakfast the other day and said,
"Dad, I had a dream..."
In it his buddy and he were fooling around here before baseball practice.

"Then a small bear showed up and charged us. You came out of the house with the 649 and shot it through the eye!"

I think this is kind of funny since my son has seen me shoot that 649. He shoots with me often and has beaten my score in the e-mail .22 benchrest matches we do together now and then. I have my good days and bad days at the range and he's seen both.

In my son's dream I had the skill and the nerve to shoot ol' Oso right where it would do the most good.
I'm flattered.

That must have made your day. I suppose you straightened your shoulders, stood up straight and developed a steely gleam in your eye as he told you his dream.
That just tells you what he thinks of you; daddy the provider and protector.

Now if he ever has a dream about mommy rushing out and clobbering a menacing bear on the head with her purse or a high heel shoe while daddy watches NASCAR on the porch with beer in hand, promising to help once they go to commercials and after a quick trip to the can, then it's time to become more active in his life. :D

Good to hear your son holds you in such high regard... you're definitely doing something right!
