A Very Ithaca Birthday

15 03 2012

March of 2012 may seem like any other month to you, but to our family it is a very special time.  Our daughter Shannon turns 30 on the 9th, our son-in-law Jeremy turns 30 on the 10th and our nephew -in-law Bryan turns 30 on the 24th.  It is not to often that 3 members of your family turn 30 during the same month.  Yeah, I know in 10 years we will have 3 turning 40 together, maybe I will write another post about that then.

Well we wanted to make this year’s birthday really special.  We ordered Ithaca model 1911 pistols for Shannon and Jeremy, with their serial numbers being the dates of their births ( 309 and 310).  Bryan’s wife Mary also ordered him a pistol from Ithaca.  We arranged a tour of the Ithaca Plant in Upper Sandusky, Ohio, which is owned by our good friend David Dlubak.  David personally conducted the tour.  With all 3 of them getting their pistols at the end of the tour.  Bryan Stoops even gave them a lesson in tearing the guns apart and cleaning them properly.  We followed that up with shooting the pistols out at the quarry.  It is amazing how accurate these guns are right out of the box.  Later that evening we had dinner for 25 at Shotzy’s restaurant.  Jeremy’s parents and his brother’s family joined our family and the Dlubak family.

We now have other members of our family counting down the years till they turn 30 and hopefully follow in their older relatives shoes.
