OCTOBER ACTION PISTOL MATCH (Sholar Powell):
We had the highest turnout of the year for our last match….guess the free fried chicken had an impact on attendance! Had plans for 7-8 shooters, and we ended up with at least twice that number of both shooters and spectators. Kevin Hill had to make a quick run to Leland for re-supply on fried bird. Campbell succeeded in locking his keys in his truck for the 40-leventh time this year. When it was mentioned that a lot of folks kept spare keys in their wallets, Ray pointed to his wallet on the dash…..sometimes you just can’t help it. He coat-hangered her loose and was back in business shortly. Ray also had a “Cowboy” portion of the match; shooters used both pistols and rifles to shoot the Plate and Mover matches. We shot the match as a “freebie” for an end of the year treat, so all scores are reported rather than winners. Hope to see all of these shooters back for the first match of 2008 in April.

Headline: Rumor Confirmed, Local Lawyer Has No Heart
afternoon a cowboy lawyer Slowpoke was riding in his covered wagon when he saw
two men along the roadside eating grass. Disturbed, he stopped and he got out
to investigate. He asked one man, "Why are you eating grass?"
"We don't have any money for food," the poor man replied. "We have to eat grass."
then, you can come with me to my house and I'll feed you," the lawyer said.
"But sir, I have a wife and two children with me. They are over there, under that tree."

Turning to the other poor man he stated, "You come with us, also." The second man, in a pitiful voice, then said, "But sir, I also have a wife and SIX children with me!"
”Bring them all, as well," the lawyer answered.
all entered the covered wagon, which was no easy task, even for a wagon as large
as the lawyers. Once underway, one of the poor fellows turned to the lawyer and
said, "Sir, you are too kind. Thank you for taking all of us with you."
The lawyer replied, "Glad to do it. You'll really love my place. The grass is almost a foot high."
