One of the coolest things about living in Texas are the people you meet and decide to hang with. Heath and Janet are two of the kindest and funniest rednecks you’ll ever love. After a few months in Wichita Falls, they invited Oz and I over to shoot guns. SRSLY? Yup, cuz that’s what you do in Texas. Cool beans.
Two facts became apparent immediately. One, I suck at shooting. Two, Oz does not.
His first shot was just off the Bullseye. I barely hit the red dot with the 12 gauge. Huh.
Before we headed back north, Heath and Janet invited us over for one last shootout along with their old (my new) friend Veronique. I met Veronique at WFAC and quickly warmed to her French accent, her French humor, and her French cooking (seriously, she made me rabbit stew. It was amazing!)
Both Janet and V have had challenges this last year. They have taught me so much and I’m beyond thankful for them. They’ve given me perspective; they’ve shown me that it’s possible to accept what life throws your way without letting it beat you down; and they’ve taught me how to laugh in spite of rough times. They also taught me that YOU NEVER STOP SQUATTING. No matter what. If you want to know about two baddass Texas chicks (one with a French flair), look no further. These ladies set the pace. That they offer friendships free and clear of conditions and other bullshit that usually comes with girlfriends is the frosting on the meatloaf.
I’m looking forward to our next shoot out.
