Today I shot bows and experienced physics (Which evidently exists independent of the people experiencing it knowing what it is!) with a friend of mine from High School & her family. Now, this doesn't sound like a big deal except we went to High School in Germany and the base & school are closed now and we're about 4,600 miles from there now in Iowa & South Dakota. We met in a town west of Gayville, South Dakota. Seriously. I know the name of the town in which we met but how could I leave out that there's a town called Gayville in South Dakota?!? I couldn't!
We ate Mexican food for lunch. I'd cunningly timed my arrival around food and then they cunningly bought and then I gauchely forgot to tip. I always pay and I always put it all on my card! But they continued to associate with me so I'm happy. We went to an archery range because @recurveemma is an archer and I don't mean like Green Arrow with the boxing glove arrow I mean she was shooting at a target 70m away from her and hitting it every time. It was amazing to watch. She's doing the whole Olympic Trials thing and is seriously good. She gave me pointers and tips. You know what. Here, let's see some pictures first okay?
Olympian Lee Ford via twitter so there's a brush with greatness in addition to Michelle's cool family.
It was good to see Michelle again after too many years and to get to meet her family. I liked all of them and wish they lived closer. I'd shoot with them, or game with them any time and count it as time well spent.
I sincerely hope Emma's new training program is helpful to her and if it's not I don't know why it wouldn't be? "If you can dodge a wrench you can shoot in the wind" seems like good advice to me!
I've got the bug now and I want a bow lol.
