  1. Dodge trucks won more often than the other trucks.
  2. I also liked Windows 7 better than Windows 10, but was forced to start using 10 when I got a new desktop. I knew how to do everything in 7, and it seemed much easier to use than 10. Now I just flounder around sometimes, sometimes find what I need, and other times, just give up.
  3. Hope she doesn't spot regularly. I would have gone with 4 because two spotters agreed that 4 were missed. One did not agree that 5 were missed, and one was NOT spotting at all.
  4. Big and close doesn't guarantee all hits on a target. I've seen a target the size of a buffalo (BIG) at pistol distance and watched shooters "walk up and off" that huge target.
  5. Lorelei married the young dentist, Roy. His practice was very successful and Roy even hired another dentist when the practice became too large for only one dentist to handle. They had two children, a girl, Jeanette, and a boy, Lee Walton. The town was so progressive they allowed Lorelei to continue teaching even after she got married which was almost unheard of back then. Years later, when the town had grown so much that it needed more than one school, Lorelei retired from teaching, but the town made her superintendent of the Stone Creek school system so she continued to watch over the students until she finally retired at age 70. After she retired, the elementary school was named after her. She and Roy still enjoyed hunting together and target practicing for many years.
  6. Joined in 2003, but went life within a year. Didn't get a 15 year pin last year which (correct me if I'm wrong) is when they started giving out the pins I think. Is it because lifers don't get pins. Have even upgraded my SASS membership.
  7. "Well, with all the things that have been going on lately, the watches and everything, we haven't had much time to spend together. We've had dinner at the hotel once and at the café a few times. We did some practice pistol shooting once right after he arrived, but that's is so far. Hopefully things will settle down soon and we'll see how it goes." Lorelei answered to Sarah Jane's question. Lorelei had heard of people hearing voices from the dead and about "spirits" watching over people. She had aunts and uncles that lived in Kentucky that came to visit once when she was a child and heard them discussing "talking to the spirits watching over them and of having 'visions'." They seemed to accept these happenings without fear or question, sort of like having faith in God, so maybe this was a common thing for some people in especially trying situations.
  8. Whole house generators are wonderful in these situations. After living through Hurricane Alicia for a week without power less than a week after a C-section, I swore that if I ever moved and could afford one, I would have one. When through Hurricane Harvey in 2017, but only lost power for 30 minutes while a couple of weeks ago, the power company was working and the power was out over 4 hours. Generator came on less than 15 seconds after the power went off. Summer in Houston/Gulf Coast area without a/c is a killer. We're expecting 100 or more temps for 3 days this week. I couldn't live without a/c.
  9. Before EOT moved to Founder's Ranch, we could never attend because I was a school teacher. Shot Founder's Ranch Invitational the first year and EOT several times after that because of the timing and the fact it was in New Mexico which is so much closer than California. I know for a fact that there are several clubs in Texas that are no longer SASS affiliated, but still shoot monthly and have a fair turnout (at least 2 or 3 posses) each month.
  10. Being old, decrepit, and slightly senile, I don't remember exactly what they looked like, but they were just regular glasses, from the 50s, not colored glass.
  11. Glasses were in some box, but I don't remember what it was. Mom got a full set of eight.
  12. I took out a 30 year mortgage (knowing full well I probably won't still be here in 30 years), but I should have it paid off in less than 15 years because I pay 3-4 times the actual principal each month (right now about $200/month so I add $400-$800 per month)which will pay off the loan in 10-15 years. If for some reason I have to fall back to just the actual amount due because of unexpected expenses, I won't be in trouble. I made sure there is no penalty for early pay-off.
  13. Lorelei knew that Roy had hunted back at his home with both a rifle and shotgun, but learned he had never shot pistols so she made him promise to meet at the general store after school tomorrow and get a set of pistols so she could take him out to practice on Saturday. They then stopped by the Sheriff's office to see what plans were being made to protect Stone Creek from Gardner and his men. Lorelei knew Gardner hated Doc and probably had plans for someone to take him out just like they had taken out Matthias. She couldn't let that happen especially now that Sarah Jane was expecting their first child. Sheriff Cody informed them of the strange happenings going on at Gardner's old place and suggested that a meeting be held to set up watches for the town like they had done in the past. Lorelei said she would get with Kris and Calico as soon as she could to set up a meeting to plan for the watches.
