Country Life in Texas


Country life in Texas is alright. Sometimes it means doing a little bit of porch 'smithing to fix a recalcitrant trigger on a Marlin 981T. Fortunately the job was simple; tighten the screw, LSP.

At other times it's all about cleaning some rimfires after Evening Prayer. I use a bore snake, or "pull-through," as we used to call them in what was once Great Britain.

Don't get me wrong, I love England, even if it is a pathetic comsymp nanny state run by a crew of corrupt and sinister Old Etonians. Good luck with that.

Speaking of England, a recent survey (via Breitbart) reveals that 2% of CofE clergy don't believe in God and another 9% think that it's impossible to know what God's like.

How many of those are bishops?

Big white roosters have setup in my yard. Make of that what you will and God bless Texas.

Shoot straight,

You're better off in Texas.

Ah, now that's a peaceful interlude in the otherwise constant stream of depressing news EVERYWHERE. What good country living! Glad you shared.

Enjoy those boots for now. You've got some hippie shoes coming your way.

LSP said...

I might well be, LL. Lot of freedom compared to England.

I'm a little bit scared at the prospect of this mystery footwear...

You are fortunate to be in Texas.
Glad to see you taking a bit of a shooty break from trying to save us all.
I wouldn't worry over much about the shoes... we only tease the ones we really care about. Blessed Be.

Hippie shoes....from Austin.

Wearing them will demonstrate your humility.

LSP said...

They say that patience, and humility, are great virtues.

I fear I'm about to be tested.

Hippies. What no account thieves.

jenny said...

Demonstrate humility, LL?!?! Hardly! He will be instantly stylish, hip, prone to peace, love, and labyrinths, and FILLED WITH COMPASSION for hippies. Just you wait and see. These'll be life-changers, I'm sure of it.
Even this blog's gonna get all sweet and adorable once he has these shoes on his feet.

LSP said...

Ahem.

LL said...

Pretty Jenny: Can LSP still wear his cowboy hat when he's wearing his new sandals or will he need to wear a mitre style hat?

Just curious.

jenny said...

I expect the Jesus sandals will demand long hair and a beard. No hat at all. For that matter, the hippie shoes he has coming will also go well with a long beard (this is how most Austinites wear them). So perhaps he just needs to start growing out a beard now in order to accessorize all future footwear.
