Have I lost my marbles?

Kind of looks like I've lost my marbles, doesn't it? I just might have, however, these are paintballs. RL and L decided they needed some, so off they went to the sporting goods store.
You can't have paintballs without something to shoot them. So, the next logical purchase was a slingshot. We're not quite ready for a paint ball gun. Some of us are, but Mom isn't one of them!
This is the target. It's been seeing a whole lot of action.
However, sometimes the target is completely missed and the shed sees some of the action. Better wash that off before Dad gets too upset about it!

We finally added to our horseshoe collection so all four of us can play again. R picked out this handy dandy little shepherd's hook for 50% and it's perfect for holding horseshoes. These are made in China too, but they are steel. Let's see how long it takes before these break!

Knitting and spinning are still taking place, but not as fast and furious as I wish. R is working on a pattern for fingerless gloves - and they are gorgeous! My spinning is coming along just as well as can be expected, but I'm not going to count on knitting any yarn I spin for quite some time! I've just about decided on a pattern for my Sockapalooza pal since the Monkey socks just aren't going to work. Oh well, live and learn...and believe me, I have learned!

MAN ALIVE, if you don't want to lose all the wisdom you've already imparted, for goodness sakes, don't lose track and go back to...
RE-READ the blogger's message! Every word of it was ingenious!
We all lost on that one!!!
Frankly, the backyard looks like a murder scene to me! Who plays such games in the pitch black night... other than cold blooded murderers? I suppose you'd like for all of us to believe that someone shot "AT THE SHED," with a that correct??? Huh? HUH?
Well, from where I'm sitting, it appears to me, that someone was backed up AGAINST said shed! That is obviosly a splat of BLOD!!! I am wondering who's blood??? But...whose blood is it???
I can't even concentrate on the subject at hand..."KNITTING BLOG!"
YES...YOU HAVE LOST "said marbles!"
I have nothing more to say to you!
Love...sort'a...Yo Mahma!
