What’s wrong with this picture?
You see that great shot? I’ll give you 3 guesses as to who it is… A. Heather B. Sam C. Garrett. Here’s the breakdown. The last round of the turkey shoot is called a money shoot. Instead of winning a turkey or ham, you win money. In this particular shoot, there was $55 up for grabs. Remember, it’s not about how many pellets hit the target, but the pellet that is the closest to the target wins. So who was the winner?
All the guys were standing around the table comparing the targets, deciding which target was the closest. After going through about fifty targets and everybody agreed which target was the best, they announced 36. I couldn’t remember my number, but the 36 sounded familiar, so I looked at Sam and he rolled his eyes at me, and said, “Oh my God, that’s you!” I told the lady that it was my card, and all the dudes in the circle kind of looked at me in shock, as one redneck yelled out, ” LEFTY ONE IT!”. Sam was not very happy about it and proceeded to not bother collecting his card, and couldn’t believe I won. My target had hardly any pellet marks in it, unlike all of Sam’s cards, who were full of pellet marks, I just assured him I made sure to have the one pellet count!
Just to give everybody a little taste of a Turkey Shoot, we are going to have one in Parker when we are home for Christmas. It will be Sunday, December 26th, if you want to come out and shoot, let me know!
Over Thanksgiving my mom, Rick, Brittany, her boyfriend, Sam and I went to Tennessee to visit with Rick’s Dad and step-mom. I didn’t take too many pictures, so here are the few I did take. It is already really cold up there, so everything looks dead, but I’ve been up here when it is green, and it is beautiful! This is the view out of Ken and Sue’s house. Now, the people of Tennessee are different than the people of South Carolina. Meet Derryl, the neighbor. He is what we will refer to as a “Hillbilly”. Need I say more. Rick, Ken, and Derryl chopped wood while Sam watched. If you have a lawn mower, you must have a trailer that goes with it. Derryl drives this on the road in front of the house. While they were out chopping wood, I was inside making jam. I made some gooseberry and blueberry jam, which by the was is delish!On Saturday, we went to Knoxville for the Tennessee vs Kentucky game. The Tennessee campus is beautiful, it reminds me a lot of UofA, in that it’s all made of red brick. The most impressive part is all the fans that come out to cheer on their team. Before the game, they have what’s called a Vol walk, where all the football players walk through the fans, followed by the band. Here are some of the actual football pictures. I would love to be able to take pictures on the field!! Someday… One of my favorites!My second favorite part of the event, SMOKEY!! This dog runs the show!!
A Couple of weeks ago Sam and I went up to see the Sawyers Family in Atlanta. We went to the Georgia Aquarium, and here are some of the pictures. Kevin, Issac, and Maylee waiting for Uncle Sam to finish picking up our tickets. Max pretty much slept the whole time, I wish I could nap wherever I wanted!
There were sooo many fish!! The aquarium was way cool, and I would highly recommend visiting it if you are ever in the Atlanta area. Jennie, Maylee and Isaac in front of a huge viewing window. One of the best parts of the aquarium was a huge tunnel that you walked through as the fish swam all around you. There were so may cool fish in this huge tank!That’s one big stingray!
We also watched a 3D movie…Kevin and Max. Yeah we got Max that cute outfit… no big deal…Touching the stingrays and sharks. Isaac says this is his favorite part.There were a lot of fun little hidaways for kids. Maylee and Isaac found one. Maylee pooped out at the end on her Uncle Sam.The Aquarium was super fun, hopefully we can get back to Atlanta soon!
