Robin Hood

I know I've been a terrible blogger lately, but I just HAD to post this today, simply because it was so cool to witness. Last night my new brother-in-law, Andrew, came over, and he brought a very cool toy with him: A 60 lb Compound Bow. I'm not exactly a marksman, but I was a Boy Scout long enough to love shooting bows, so we went out to the barn and set up a target. Believe it or not, on his very first round of arrows, Andrew shot one arrow into another arrow, and IT STUCK! We couldn't believe it. I pulled out my cell-phone camera to document the occasion. I thought splitting arrows was just the stuff of Hollywood movies, but apparently not. You can't tell from the picture, but the second arrow drove the first arrow about a foot deeper into the hay bale.

That's my man in green tights! I'm so glad you guys can have fun with his favorite hobby. If you weren't out there shooting with him, I would be! Yikes!
