Is México. I have been ignored standing in front of a regular covered bus stop. I was able to make a complaint that time. I really think I have been discriminated against. Oh well, I am the feriner.

Well, I did it. I shouldn't have, I know. I prepared two thin strips of hardwood from a bow I broke and prepared two places on my present bow and did some more lamination with an eye to a little more power. I have to let it in clamps until mañana. Then with bated breath I will draw the bow some more.

It is tested. Definitely stronger. Arrows are flung faster by witness of the considerably flatter trajectory. Pulling to about 27 in. Does not produce any protest from the wood. It is close to what I can pul, but still a pleasure to shoot.

The farmer is coming over friday evening with his family. We will play with bows and he can approve his and take it to his house. My wife is making one of her specialties and we celebrate her 69th birthday, which is Saturday. I hope my friend likes his bow.

Well, they were here. My friend shot his bow and was quite pleased with it. He took it along home. I gave him the 3 arrows sized for it. And I gave him 2 of my hand crafted wood arrows as well with hunting points, with a circle past which he should not draw. His kids shot too. His oldest son shot his bow, and was able to draw it well. The younger son and the girls all shot mine. It is easier to draw. I gave a lot of instructions and was able to keep them from shooting each other. Judging from how the bow shot without protest, I really have hope that it will shoot for a nice long time.

Old Lobo, I like your collection. Your work? I could not pull an 80lb bow. Nice work.
