Keeping an eye cornered on LawChick . . for if she drops the drink and slips that little S&W out of the garter holster to hold bead on a legless, slithering reptile then best to be out of the line-of-fire. Make tracks.

(I slipped, I said I wouldn't, sorry, couldn't resist ).

It's not snakes per se (only crazy people "like" snakes, the rest of us tolerate them more and less) it's that anyone who can snap shoot a moving target with a snubbie at 30-yards bears watching. And were my calf in the way I've a hunch she could lightning-calculate the angle of deflection through that muscle for the kill.

Now I'll always have to detour around Arkansas.

I don't see the garter holster???? as its obvious she is proud of her petite figure. Don't you think the S&W would be in the hand bag? She is keeping it just below her right hand and the lid app rears not to be tied closed. And I don't believe this is LAW CHICK? Maybe Charlie's Angles! Looks like 1971 to me. Definitely before URBAN COWBOY days.

Yeah, that is a 1965 or '66 Mercury with a same year SS.

Since that's 46-years ago it would have to be LawChicks grandmother as a young woman. Great-grandad watching for the lightning to strike.

Still, with Southern women -- their male relatives and progenitors having seen military service back to The War of Jenkins' Ear -- usually know how to shoot. Probably describe themselves, as, "okay", or "pretty good" (which up North would mean expert if not marksman for a man), and the special recipes passed down for generations among the ladies on powder brand, grain count, and semi-wadcutter versus hollow-point are secret even from the men around them.

In this state was that 1980's advertising business about, "Don't Mess With Texas", actually adapted from a century of smokeless powder firearms-qualified ladies in muttered asides in the best redneck stories where "don't mess with exe's" in the side-splitting but sobering punch line to who's-got-the-best-scar story after the first sixteen beers.

But don't be surprised that the '80's campaign was about littering. Ya'll go home, but we live here. When Lady Bird gave ol' Lyndon the look inabout 1965 he (literally, it's a true story) gathered the Democratic National Committee, the Senate leadership, the House Dems and the entire White House staff in a too small room and told 'em in no uncertain words that this Highway Beautification Act would be passed. Pronto. (There's a finality to the correct pronunciation of that word that old Texans have mastered).

So I hope with the above context that all will appreciate that I described six impossible things our LawChick no doubt learned at grandma's knee, for, to

1] Take the head off a moving snake
2] At thirty yards
3] With a snubbie
4] Through a major leg muscle
5] With an accurately calculated angle-of-bullet-deflection
6] After poppin' leather; all in 3/10's of a second

is not outside possiblity with what Yanks too willingly believe is just demure and soft-spoken.

So . . if they is serious 'bout snakes, you, too, like great-grandaddy messin' with the fire pit will be a'watchin' that lady from an eye corner. If the gaze locks and the pupil dilates . . best to know which direction to dive.

(I sure hope this makes that lady laugh. It's a really long way around Arkansas from here. You know, when she says that this is my state . . . ?)

I am having trouble IDing the auto in the SS picture. Silver Streak's last model was in 56-57?? so the auto should be about that year?? I am wrong on that, and now see that SS lasted until 1997.
But it is not a 55-56 Mercury

Not a GM product or Chrysler of that era neither. Looks to me to be a newer car?
Where are the car experts?

Looks more like this 65 Buick.

Two others models that I could believe are that car: Chrysler Imperial, or Lincoln. Of the era, not sure of the year, though.

When my parents first bought the 80 acres on which I grew up, my grandparents lived on it for a few years while we lived in Irving and went out to the farm on weekends. They were the first humans to live on the property for a long while, and it had gotten pretty wild. My Granny regularly carried a Harrington & Richardson .22 revolver on her hip when she was outside the farmhouse. (That very same H&R revolver is currently in in an undisclosed location within 50 feet of where I'm sitting.)

Granny Boyd taught me from a very young age that snakes are for killin' and I have never seen a need to change that attitude she taught me. I can override the basic response and ignore snakes I'm positive pose no threat to me... but I confess to being somewhat trigger/hoe/shovel happy where legless reptiles are concerned.

So, while I like LawChick and would be inclined to take her side anyway... I couldn't agree with her more on the topic of slithery icky targets..er... snakes!

Regarding the vintage advertisement (with the centerpiece on the table and gramps wondering why there is no heat coming from that there firepit), I think those folks decided to camp on the boat ramp that leads down to the lake. Missy is probably wondering why there are several hundred boaters lined up trying to figure out how to get around them down to the water, and that might explain why Ma is holding a tray of fresh brownies for the crowd behind the scenes.

I just noticed. That's not a hand bag, that's a creel. Goes with the net next to it.

I know I'm not sticking my S&W in a yucky, fishy creel. Or my Grandfather's S&W either.

OK RED you were right the first time. Sorry I misread it to be a 55 or 56 as I thought that SS had closed in that era.

66 Mercury it is.
