Wrigley


Three weeks I got a job. Once a day I go over and check on Wrigley, a dog in our neighborhood.

He is a 16 week old golden retriever that is very cute.

I give him water and let him outside.

.22 Luger

This is a .22 Luger that our grandpa gave to us. It was made in America and sold to Germany during WWII. Officiers used it, except in the war, they used 9mm. This is a remake that is the exact same gun except it is a .22.


Originally the Luger was made by an American, in America, but the Americans weren't interested in buying it. He brought it to Germany and sold it there.

We (me and my dad) are just about ready to go out to a shooting range.


Shooting the luger had less kickback than I thought and the shells went farther than I thought. The clip holds ten bullets and jams occassionally but usually only when you fire too fast.

Zandyman 2008






Here I am at Zandyman 2008. What is it? This year I turned 12. I wanted to have a "coming of age" event with my dad. I am really interested in guns so we went and shot skeet. It was my first time of using a gun. It was fun. It wasn't as loud as I thought it would be.

Washington DC

Me and my family are going to DC on the 23rd for five days. We are taking a plane there. We're staying with our family the first two nights and a hotel the other two nights. We are going to the Air and Space Museum and MORE! We are going to add a picture later.

Eiffel Tower

Here I am with my Lego Eiffel Tower. It took me four days with 3,428 pieces. My Uncle Joe bought it for himself, put it together and took it apart so I could build it. It has seven elevators. They don't move.
