My daughter Misty and her husband Devon became parents Friday at 12:45PM. My new granddaughter's name is Chelsea Elizabeth Hughes. She's 6 1/2 pounds and very healthy with bright pink skin and a full head of dark hair. She came about a month earlier than she was supposed to come but the doctor and the nurses are not concerned. Misty did very well before during and after the birth. The baby shower was planned for today at my house but I think Misty will still be in the hospital.

My son Joseph found my wife Ruth had died in her sleep Sunday morning September 11. She had been having back pains which developed into leg pains.She had gotten to the point she couldn't walk and the hospital prescribed painkillers and a wheelchair. She was asleep in the wheelchair Saturday night. We put her to bed and she was mumbling incoherently. Sunday morning she was back in the wheelchair watching tv when my son found her. The coroner said she died in her sleep of a heart attack or a stroke which are part of her medical history. We have set the funeral for 11:00AM Wednesday in Plainfield, IN. Hampton Gentry Funeral Home.

I'm back in Arkansas after my trip to Talequah. I met a lot of great people and had a good time. I picked everyone's brains on string and arrow making and I think I figured out some of the things I was doing wrong. The main thing is to practice a lot. Also, a skinny point penetrates a lot better than my thick ones, Also, wood tips splinter when they hit rock.... My main problem was hitting the target from 100 yards. Now I need to see about starting Cornstalk shooting in Indiana.

I'm heading to Arkansas this afternoon. I'll practice as much as I can before heading over to Oklahoma. I planned to practice at the range yesterday, but I forgot there was a Wednesday 3d shoot going on. The rangemaster told me it would be too dangerous. So I shot in a new subdivision (no houses yet). I was shooting pretty good. The wood tips don't like to hit rock. I resharpened them and made me an armguard from rawhide last night. I'll string up the final gut string this morning and see if it breaks.
