Summertime is finally here!

Just kidding! But there is a new ad up for a new camp out in Tombstone, Arizona! That’s right! Two of the Gals of the West have teamed up to put on a summer camp filled with blasting bullets and having a great time. Sally (aka Shot) and Angus both have teamed up with their saloon, Tumbleweed, to put on a camp that teaches you how to shoot. It has basic gun safety lessons, what ammo for what gun and cleaning care as well as having a couple drinks on the house. This camp is perfect for beginners to experts alike and will sure to be a week to remember (unless you drink a lot, then maybe not so much.) This poster was made using graphics found on google and


This was worth 3.5 stars.

A picture’s worth a thousand words


For this assignment we were to find a picture of a couple in love and create a back story to it. I just googled a picture for this and the one above was the one I liked the most. Here goes my extremely made up story about them!

It was August 10th, 9:34 a.m., Josie had just woken up. She lived in a small apartment with her boyfriend Ryan, however he was deployed, and had been for a year, so she was waking up alone again. She got up, made some coffee and toast and sat out on the small balcony that over looked the ocean. It was a Saturday and she had nowhere to hurry off to since Ryan was coming home at some point that week so she took off work. It had been a stressful week since each day was passing at the blink of an eye and there was still no word from him or of him. He normally had his phone or his laptop but his phone fell and broke and he couldn’t get in contact with her unless it was through email. Since he had been traveling back to the states he hadn’t been able to talk to her in 2 weeks.

She checked her cell to see if his parents had texted her saying that they were on their way to pick her up and all of them would go to the airport. No such text came, so she went about her usual day. She cleaned the apartment, went to the gym, walked their dog and read a good book. Her best friend Shauna called her and made plans for them to meet up for lunch. Josie was apprehensive at first since she wanted to be home for when she got the text, but it had been almost a week and she could use a little socializing and some good food. Her and Shauna were to meet at the cutest little Bistro in town near a flower shop. It had been Josie’s favorite since that’s where she met Ryan. He was waiting tables and Josie happened to be at one of the tables he was assigned. He flirted but she had no desire to be charmed by him. Eventually he woo’d her enough to go on a date and the rest is history.

When Josie showed up Shauna was nowhere in sight. Nor was anyone else at the Bistro or in the flower shop or anywhere. Josie quickly became concerned and all of the sudden a song started playing from the speaker system at the Bistro. It was her and Ryan’s song, a slow duet of two pianos. It was their first dance at a friends wedding they had attended. Josie heard footsteps and coming out of the flower shop was Ryan with the biggest bouquet of roses she had ever seen. She ran towards him and hugged him, lightly crying into his neck. He picked her up and put her in front of himself and he got down on one knee. He proposed, she said yes, and the picture above was captured by Shauna. It turns out Ryan had been home since Monday but he wanted to propose in a wonderful way. Josie had never been happier and the rest is history.

What’s in Sally’s satchel?

Hey y’all it’s Sally! I saw that one of the assignments this week was to show what’s in your bag so I thought I would show my trinkets and handy things I carry around with me!


First things first, I’m a bartender so I obviously have a shot glass in my satchel. Ain’t no way I’m leaving home or the saloon without it. This one is special too since it was given to me as a gift my an ol’ cowgirl I haven’t seen in a while.

Then I have a bullet shell from the first gun I ever shot with my Pa and brothers. I kept the shell because it reminds me of the simpler times when I was a child running around my home.

Next is a lighter. I have this in case someone wants a fancy drink on fire. Also it’s great if I get stuck out in the middle of nowhere and need to build a fire and keep warm. It’s happened quite a few times. My brothers like to mess with me to say the least.

Sunglasses are also a must out west. With the heat, dust and the sun, I need to protect my eyes! Plus I make ’em look real nice with my pretty cowgirl boots.

The other two things are lip balm and a nail file. I may not be much of a looker but I do like to keep my nails looking clean and my lips nice and smooth. Plus the peppermint in the lip balm keeps my breath nice and fresh.

I don’t ever carry cash on me just because there are few who have it out for me and the last thing I need is to get ransacked and end up dirt poor f you’re wondering why I don’t have money! But that’s all there is to my satchel!

That’s Not What I Expected

This is my first ever visual assignment I am doing! Can you guess what this is? Hint: It’s not just simply Captain America! I chose this assignment because I love taking pictures, especially close ups. Now since it isn’t warm or nice and snowy out I had to settle on something indoors that I really liked. If there’s one thing you should know about me it’s that I love most Marvel movies so I thought taking a picture of this would be fun! This doesn’t necessarily relate to the Western theme but if there was a sheriff in town, I would definitely hope it would be Captain America. I simply used my phone camera, took a picture and uploaded it to flickr. and then embedded it into this post. Can’t wait to see what you all guess!
