On July 31st, I turned a quarter of a century old. Go me! As a sign of my decrepitness, I spent most of the day sleeping after I got home from work in the afternoon.
My mom decided to take me shopping for clothes for my birthday, so I got three pairs of shorts and two shirts, which is all I really needed. I thought XL would be right for me but these things are fucking tents on me, but since I work in a restaurant, I don't mind. Loose-fitting clothing can be the difference between burned skin or not.
A friend of mine got an old wood gun cabinet for me from some guy he knows, it could only hold 5 guns and had really, really tiny shelves, about a little bigger than a shotgun shell box. Needless to say, I had no use for a wooden gun cabinet when I have a metal one. However, the size and double-sided set-up were perfect to unclutter my room. After knocking all the old shelves out with a hammer and pulling the nails out of the thing, which took forever, my friend hooked me up with some old spare 2x8 boards he had. We cut them to length and then cut about a blade's worth off one pair for each shelf so it would fit. The left hand (with your back to it) top side actually has a shim using a smaller scrap piece off the end of one of the boards and a part of the old shelf (waste not, want not, right?) Another spare piece was used to make the divider on the right hand side.
I found an OLD carving of my name from when I was like, 10, so I put it on the door. My brother bought me that Winchester plate a long time ago but I never really had a place to put it until now. I also put up a Mustang logo (says 239) with some of the small brass hangers that were in the cabinet. The shotgun and pouch belt is hanging on a stronger hanger than was also inside it.
And a "War Room" pic just for the hell of it :-P
Grats on the level up. 25 is about when it all gets fuzzy. You can't remember what year anything happened in anymore and sometimes you can't even remember your age. :P
That happens to me for a few months after every birthday, I always forget that I aged so I always say I'm a year younger than I am :-P
