Tomorrow I’m going shootin’. Yes I am. I’m heading to a shooting range following an invitation from a police guy and his girlfriend who read my blog.
Apparently, this is their new toy.*
I’m a little bit on the nervous side! It looks so…well, so real!
And I have had to think hard about the appropriate attire to wear. I’m sorted, I think….
*NB: I know this is not a toy. Yikes, a real firearm.
I wrote an article recently about the Confederate Flag and how we Brits might interpret it. Rememember…?
So, from that a Southern gentleman has been in communication with me, offering me lots of suggestions about the flag and information about the South in general, which has been fascinating.
He’s been telling me how he’s been reading and learing about U.S. history for 20 years now and is creating a piece about it. He’s also given me some authors to pursue – the writer, Jessica James, who lives in Virginia (I think). She has written a couple of historical fiction books, as has Virginia Beard Morton. Her book is ‘Marching Through Culpepper’, and it’s ‘a romance as well as history’. I like a bit of historical fiction, so I’ll be dipping my nose in, for sure.
Thank you, Southern Gent 🙂
