ARMED DELIVERY

Our neighbor's granddaughter delivered fresh tomatoes and cucumbers to us through the field. She carried the pellet rifle in case of snakes. I'm guessing she must fancy herself to pretty good shot to think she might be able to shoot a snake. Yikes!

  1. I think she just loves the image too. ;) Now that is a slight that's pretty alien to a Brit!

  2. That just shows you some of the different cultures around our vast country. I bet she can hit a snake with that pellet gun. Wade, against my wishes, has been teaching sweet Layla how to shoot a gun and she's only 4.

  3. My nieces could shot a snake out of the air - bet this girl could, too. :)

  4. LL Cool Joe -- What, no pistol packin' gals in the UK?

    Bonnie -- I hope he is teaching her with nerf dart guns and teaching her how to practice gun safety!

    Lynn -- I have to trust the hoe or shovel to kill snakes around here. I can't hit the broad side of a barn with a gun.

    Changes in the wind -- I knew you'd like her. I'm probably going to start calling her Calamity Jane:)

  5. I couldn't hit Kate Smith's backside with a fistful of beans but I'll bet young Calamity Jane here could get a snake with that gun.

    But,just in case, if there are snakes around she should be wearing real shoes...

  6. Sorry Annie, Wade is teaching Layla with a real gun. His philosophy is that she will learn gun safety and know how to handle a gun so she won't accidently shoot anyone. No nerf guns for them. I still protest loudly but it falls on deaf ears. I guess Rossi will be next.

  7. Oh and just so you know...Rossi was named after a gun manufacturer.

  8. I remember hearing that owning guns is against the Law in the UK, except for the Royal Guard n military.

    She must be a future member of the NRA! She must really hate snakes- They'd better hide! Walking in flip-flops can be dangerous.
