Reb, Sadie's doing fine. She talked about you for a while, occasionally even wept a little. Then I took her out hunting a couple of times, it wasn't long before she was back to her old self. It's must be true, time does heal all wounds. I might even bring her down this year, trying to decide between Sadie or Kimberly, only bringing one though..... and I don't want to catch either of them in your grasp again.

I've hunted with a pistol a few times at Shawnee. Even killed a few squirrels with one.

One also emailed me a pic of their badge to name drop if I have to. Never hurts to have an ace in the hole.

I will tell you that volunteering a couple of weekends a year to teach hunter safety has it's benefits, from getting to know the CPO's, the director, and a few others along the way. It's a good to know that if you are working with the youths of today and the hunters of tomorrow that they are doing the right thing. It's also nice when the mother says we've got lots of hunting land, but he or she doesn't have anyone to take them.... would it be possible for you to take them hunting once or twice? Found a few good hunting spots that way. Doc
I applaud your work on the hunter safety courses. I passed up 2 shots tonight while hunting based upon my training from my Dad 40 years ago. Sadly, many youths interested in hunting may not have a dad who can teach them safe gun handling and hunting. Iím glad that you are stepping up to help.

Sadie misses me I know. I treated her good. Her own special room, lots of expensive food. She got nothing but the best. I even taught her to say Y'all instead of "you guys". I am sure you have probably corrupted her again. If I ever get that pretty little, high strung gal back in my stable she aint goin nowhere.

Ok, the actual story.... Sadie was my Sako that somehow ended up being snatched at the Shawnee hunt a couple of years ago, but the perp got caught red handed. Lol. Me being the swell guy I am, sold the rifle to ole Reb for a song and a dance..... Well a song anyway (Come to find out Reb has two left feet and doesn't look so good in his ballerina outfit). As time went on Reb started neglecting his other rifles, his Cooper, T-Bolt, and some others were destined to become closet queens, not to mention the way his phone bill went up calling me and others and telling tales of the feats of Sadie. Reb started using big words like "Coriolis Effect, Ballistic Coefficient, Trajectory, Minute of Angle.... then he hit rock bottom and started talking about something called "Bullet Dope", I had to draw the line somewhere, so I called an intervention. Me and a few of his closest friends (ok, his other friend) lured Reb to the intervention with the mention of Persimmon Wine. I knew anyone hooked on "Bullet Dope" should be an easy mark for alcohol. So while talking to Reb on the phone about the Persimmon wine, our call was interupted by a knock on my door, I open the door to see Reb standing there still talking on the phone. Scotty from Star-Trek would have been impressed at the warp speed Reb traveled. We strapped Reb to a shooting bench handed him a old Glenfield 60 with a bent barrel and some Golden Bullets and thankfully after a box or so of rounds, Reb started coming back around and missing shots just like the Pre-Sadie days. The intent look of intellect was gone, the twang came back in his southern draw, and his pockets were once again empty. So empty in fact that I had to buy Ole Sadie back from Reb so he would have money for a room that night (recall the snort of persimmon wine he had) and enough gas to get home on. I know what you're thinking..... and I would have put him up for the night EXCEPT for 2 things #1 He might have gotten a hold of one of my good rifles and fallen off the wagon. #2 He was still wearing that ballerina outfit, talking something about being a nutcracker. It's not a pretty story, and I don't make the news..... I just report it. Doc

Doc that is quite a story. Of course it is all a figment of your imagination. Magic mushroom? Your story has several flaws: 1. Anyone can tell you that bending the barrel on a Marlin 60 and feeding them Golden Bullets is standard accurizing procedure. 2. I aint never studied, read or talked about no coriolis effect. Aint that something you do with a woman? 3. I swore off persimmon wine since that tree body slammed me at Shawnee. 4. That empty blank look is my normal demeanor. 5. I don't have a ballerina outfit although I did borry a pair of leotards from Frank Buck one time. It does, however, worry me that you fantasized about strapping me to a bench. Rehab Doc. Even the best of us need help sometimes.

Forget everything else, but tell me how you came up with a pair of leotards from Frank Buck, on second though DON'T. You, Frank Buck and leotards, I agree I do now need a shrink, not so much rehab.

Well... He said you left them at his house and figured since we are brothers from another mother I would like to have them. I only borrowed them for a short time and returned them. They are at Frank's if you want them back. They were camo is what impressed me. Make good squirrel hunting attire.

Don't we!!!

Is that the tree that "body slammed" you???
I must admit you had me pretty worried, but you came out of that ok... Thank you Lord!!! However in hindsight it is pretty funny. I'll probably be there this year to help keep an eye on you. You do the same for me... ok!!!
God Bless, Frank.

Frank, I will watch out for you. I am pretty sure I dont need a watching out for. I learned my lesson. That being said, I will have some of that persimmon wine and apple pie. I will just try to use good judgement and some sense. Something in the past that has eluded me from time to time.
