May I Have Your Autograph, Please?

Last week Allen took Gabby to meet the legendary Jim Shockey. Now I realize that most of you won't know his name, it's not like he is in the news headlines everyday, but he is on TV every week. On the Sportsman's Outdoors Channel. Jim and his wife Louise, from Team SHE Safari, were in Rogers signing autograph's and Allen took Gabby as she too dreams of being an avid hunter someday. Not that Brian doesn't, it's just that he's still pretty woolly and just the thought of him standing in line politely, wore everyone out. Makensie? she's not too sure she's comfortable with the whole idea of hunting yet. So Gabby won the bid to go.

Allen and Gabby were both so impressed with how friendly both Jim and his wife were. Not that he expected them to be rude, he just didn't think we would get a chance to actually talk with them.

Here is a picture of Gabby winning over two of her favorite celebrities.

That is stinkin' awesome. When my oldest gets TV time, he watches the outdoor channel. Brett and I find it so funny! So, we may be the only one's within shouting distance that know what you are talking about! Hee hee!

And, BIG news. We now have a set of antlers. No, no, we didn't gain them by the thrill of a hunt. Rather on a walk...There they were, a set antlers attached to a bit of skull, but that's easily taken care of. But, YEA for antlers. He's happy!

My Becca, who is almost 5, loves hunting with her daddy! She had asked for a pink gun for Christmas and we were not too keen on getting a 4 yr old a gun, not until she is older. Well, her uncle, also an avid hunter got wind of it and bought her a child sized pink Cricket (.22 riffle ???) Anyway, she was so happy. I'm not happy about it and it's safely locked up in the gun safe. She has been warned she does not touch it unless her Daddy is with her and told that it is NOT a toy. UGH!

A-congratulations on the antler find. Any antlers are pretty rare and to find both of them even more so. Exciting. Just wait til you see my living room next. There has been some updated decorating that I'm not sure you are going to like.

Gabby really wants a pink gun too. But no luck so far. She is getting a small .22 for her birthday but not pink. :)

I think my BIL found the pink youth gun at Wal-Mart. I've seen the pink camo ones at Bass Pro Shops and Academy Sports, but her's is solid pink.

Holy Cow! Hunting? I'm much too squeamish to even think about it.
Pink sounds great... on tools, maybe.
I have no idea who you are talking about, but YEEAAA-- still very happy for your darlin' girlie! :-)
