What I Found

I've been going through closets.  I've been finding lots of interesting things, including this: 
The cap gun is probably mine from my Annie Oakley days.  The holster looks too new for a 60 something year old leather strap and pouch.  I have no idea where it came from or why I have it.

It was startling.  I picked up a folder and my eyes got stuck.  

The boots have a high heel.  Unless Little Cuter takes ownership I guess I'll have to take responsibility.  

TBG took one look at it and said THROW IT OUT! Why do we have that?  THROW IT OUT!  

And I did.

For a while, the Annie Oakley/Calamity Jane piece of me treasured that cap gun.  I loved the lurking and the skulking and the bam-bam-shoot-em-up adventures my cousins and siblings and I had in and around our abutting yards.  

Those are powerful memories.

My, how times have changed.  



  1. Times have changed indeed. I don't know if kids still have cap guns but they certainly have virtual access to fire power. I'm not sure that's fun, and it's surely not much exercise.

    1. When I saw what Grand Theft Auto was I couldn't believe I'd bought it for Big Cuter for Xmas. When he asked me for coins to play Mortal Combat at an arcade I refused. Was I hypocritical? I prefer to think of it as evolved..... or woke???? as in Awake to the issue?
