Johnny's Got a Gun

Image hosted by

I could wait no longer, John is now armed. He is the proud new owner of an air rifle. He takes all the saftey rules very seriously and has been practicing his aim on tin cans. This photo is from yesterday at supper time. He keeps it in the gun cabinet with dads arsenal. He is looking foward to hunting squirrels with it.

Squirrels, run for the hills!

(Millie will be jealous when she sees this. Her weapon lately has been the wooden leg of a children's chair that came loose coupled with her voice saying, "shoot, shoot, shoot".)

Good luck with your hunting, Johnny!

When we come over we'll be sure to annouce our arrival (outside of shooting distance).

Scott, great posting! I remember when my father started training me on a Crossman pellet gun when I was real little. When I was old enough to hunt he made me carry an ancient empty 10 gauge shotgun with him on every hunt for year, and treat it as though it was loaded. Let me tell you, that old blunder bust was heavy, but it sure made an impression upon me. The next year, after I earned the money and bought a new Savage 12 gauge, we went for the first quail hunt. Upon arriving and gearing up to hunt, my father simply said, “son, you take that valley . . . I’ll take the other and we will meet at the top of the mountain.” It was then that my father trusted me to hunt by myself. BTW, I have finally launched my blog, The Rural Missourian, hope you have a chance to drop in and leave a comment every now and then.

My dad is a hunter, and my brother picked up that gene, but I guess it was a recessive gene in my case, because I spent more time with my nose in a book than having it stuck up next to a barrel peering down at the sights.

I regret that now (not the reading, but the failing to get real comfortable with a gun), and I'm having a hard time breaking into that part of where I want to go. I'm hoping I can remedy the lack of training my sons in these things, at least with the younger ones. I don't have a lot of time left with the oldest son.

Anyway, Valerie says something like, "Yeah for babies" and I say, "Yeah for training the babies to be men with guns" I guess Noah won't be too far behind John.

Hey Rich and Christina

Thanks for stopping in.


I'm not sure what an orb is. If its all them spots.....them is fly specks, more commonly known as turds. Thank you for being so observant though.

Definitions of Orbs
This is the most common type of spirit energy to be captured on film. These will appear as solid or transparent "balls". They appear in many shapes and some colors, with white being the most common. Then again they could be floating turds..They may be nothin at all i just see what i think looks like orbs ...check it out if you wanna
