Then off to the range. Belle and I stopped at a gas station in Woodworth, LA for gas station food. For those of you who aren't familiar, gas station food has pretty much replaced the little diner in most small towns. Every gas station in every small town has a grill and a fry-station, and they do breakfast and lunch. It's pretty durned good food, too. Belle had fried chicken livers and fried okra, while I went more conventional with chicken strips, french fries and a biscuit.
Oh, yeah, gas-station food is what's happeing in the Small Town South. Yeah, there are tables in the place and we ate sitting down, with napkins and everything. If you haven't eaten gas station food, you've never lived.
Then, off to the range, where we talked about the upcoming Louisiana State Championship and did some practicing to keep our eye on the target.

And, of course, Blue Eyed Belle, calling the line. We all take turns being a range officer, so that everyone gets a chance to shoot. Belle recently got her Rangemaster Pin from the association, so she's a certified Rangemaster. Even though Thorn Valley is a small club, three rangemasters will come in handy with the State Championship coming up.
And, while we're at it, one more plug for the event.
Planning continues, and it's not that far away. It'll be here before we know it.
