July Notes

We shot scenarios that had us killing rabbits to plant our garden, taking care of soiled doves that were taking care of our husband, getting rid of rascals that wanted ruin our 4th of July party, getting people to leave our land, and getting out of an ambush. Everyone had fun. We had some gun problems but not as many as last month. Hope next month no one has any gun problems.
