We've worked far too hard lately, and everyone felt the need to blow off a little steam last weekend. What better way than to load up onto the back of a flatbed ranch truck and take a tour of our booming prairie dog town (located just outside our yard). The weekend involved a variety of weapons and family members. The cast of characters above includes husband Jim, son Cass, and nephew Kyle.
Although weapons passed back and forth between all involved, 20-year old Cass moved some dirt with an SKS.
Kyle had kind of a Dirty Harry vibe going on with a S&W .44. He's 26 and freshly out of the military.
Husband Jim proved worthy of the biggest bragging rights. He succeeded in killing several prairie dogs with his bow and arrows. Instead of broadheads, he was using target tips! At first, the arrows just bounced off the prairie dogs, but then he got good at it. In this photo, Kyle's "got your back."
Cass and Kyle were both so well dressed I had to laugh. What a couple of goons! Anyone driving by probably thought we were crazy. We are, but it sure was fun.
