Over all things were going pretty well. Jeanie was still having one or two seizures every month but it had been that way for years. She was in her words having " The time of her life". The shoots were going about like normal. I was doing less work because of my shorten hours. Some of the shooters were grumbling about that, they had been as the saying goes " spoiled rotten". Before Jeanie, I spent many many hours a day in the shop and I seldom turned down a job. I had a lot more going for me now, Jeanie was just really fun to be with 24/7
We were just really getting started for the year. After this shoot we would be heading north to cooler country for the rest of the summer. I was anxious for Jeanie to meet my Daughter and her family. This was home country and I had so much I wanted to show Jeanie,and gun clubs are like Bars once you have seen one you have just about seen them all.

We had a fun time with Sandy and her family, We showed Jeanie the sights of Amarillo.
The next stop after the shoot was My hometown, if a country boy has a hometown. Stinnett,Texas home of the Mighty Stinnett Rattlers.Between Amarillo and the old home place 65 miles to the north is where about 1/3 of my stories come from. Those were much softer, gentler days for the most part. I had some good times in " The Panhandle" but the one that ended the best for me is about Sandy and we will get to that another time.
