Cheers! or Daisy! or All You Need Is Love!

Tony and I have had a fun weekend. Friday afternoon we did a video chat/happy hour with our dear friends Fay & Ian, that live up in Toronto.

We did a lot of laughing and let's just say our happy hour lasted more than two hours. And the best thing about it was we didn't wear masks, have to sit ten feet apart or have a designated driver! 

Saturday morning was a lot of fun too, because our dear friend Gerry Olert came out early to spend the day with us. (FYI: In my book The Cowgirl Sisterhood: The Terlingua Treasure Map, I made Gerry the sheriff of Brewster County.)

We hung out outside and visited for a few hours. We laughed about my book and his character and then I debuted and put on the costume that I made for me to wear in Jay Pennington's & his upcoming Short Western movie—Vinegar To Honey.  Then by committee vote—we went and ate a delicious breakfast, at Randy's & Lisa's Save Inn Restaurant, in Kerrville.

When we got back to Big Foot Ranch I suggested that we do some target practice outside using my pink Daisy Red Ryder BB Air rifle and Tony's air-pump rifle.

We set up our targets on a garbage bag packed full of leaves that have not made its way to Tony's garden area, yet. 

When the shooting match began Gerry and I took turns using my pink rifle, so Tony could get a good workout using his air-pump rifle. 

And needless to say the men had fun hitting their targets and blowing up a few exploding beer cans of Tony's Keystone Light beers that were intended to be put inside the refrigerator. And I had fun too, even though I never once hit my target or a can.

Here are pictures of our targets and please note that when our shooting match ended, while I went inside the house to get something, Tony secretly fired several rounds of BB's into my target and I just discovered this when I went outside to take pictures of our targets. And I know Tony did it, because he just confessed to doing it. Here is Gerry's target:

Here is Tony's target:

And here is my target:

As I finish writing this tonight, I do want to brag on Tony's green thumb, because this afternoon he brought me this beautiful squash. And he told me that we already have a bumper crop of squash and tomatoes, bell peppers and jalapeƱos!

And before I finish this post and go enjoy a happy hour with Tony I want you to know that Gerry sent me this e-mail this morning. Gerry wrote:

"So much fun! Thank you both for making me a sheriff who is a sharpshooter with a pink Daisy! G"

And lastly, my friend Nancy, in Chicago sent me this beautiful animal video. And I absolutely love it!

Y'all have a great evening and keep on laughing!

Note to Bad Guy: Remember when Nancy is shooting, the safest place to be is in front of a target.

Ok, Nancy, so where did you get your Buddy Holly glasses? I haven't seen you at any of the local band's concerts!

I can't wait to see them in person when we get to do our park walks again!

Hi Anon & Mari!

Anon, this is true advice, but whose side are you on? : )

Mari, Buddy Holly's glasses were square and mine are round sort of like Harry Potter's, so you may need to get your vision checked. : )

And Mari, I still hope that we can meet for a fun walk-about in the park sooner than later.

Nancy, the glasses on the tables at the New Buddy Holly Band concerts are round, as were at least 'some' of the original Buddy Holly's glasses. Y'all both look pretty dashing in them; by contrast I look like a dweeb. I have photos, but I know better than to put them online. LOL

Hi Mari! Thank you for the round glasses info—I didn't know. And I bet you look pretty cool in yours. I want to see pictures.
