There is a Story afoot . . .



A story has attacked me . . . not sure where it's from, but I have been posting chapters as they come out of my fingers. Yes, I am still posting on firearms training and my new topic of basic prepping - all links are to the right of the blog, newest posts first on the lists. Feel free to ignore the story posts - they usually start with a chapter number. But, feel free to read the story as well and comment on it - I like how it's turning out so far! Links to the various chapters are at the right under . . .

Personal - Friendships . . . .

 

I have a belief that friendships are best fostered over a meal taken together. It is during the conversation that you can find the breadth and depth of a relationship. When the initial spark is fed and you get to see if you have a single, solitary item in common with this person . . . . or if there is a broader foundation to build from.

ME – Texting: Hey Ms. A, Susie and are going to be passing by on Friday. Would you be interested in getting together for supper??

Ms. A – Texting: Hi!!! Yes, it is only about 35-40 minutes south of us. We would love to come to see you!! Let me know a time and all that!

So plans were made, times and dates set . . . .

Tonight, after a year+ of reading “A Girl and Her Gun”’s blog – Susie and I had the great pleasure of meeting Ms. A and TSM over an absolutely amazing meal, a great bottle of wine and a “holy crap give me MORE of that” desert!

While you might expect the conversation would center on guns – it did not. It also included her training, Susie’s equestrian endeavors, our kids and grandkids, their kids and grandchild, jobs, individual passions . . . . and I got to truly “see” Ms. A – a passionate, chatty, funny, loving and friendly woman – who loves guns and trains with MMA fighters. And it all just fit together so well.

Thanks for the time with you and TSM tonight Ms. A – we’ll have to do this again sometime!

  1. Dang. You, your missus, AGirl and TSM all in the same room (with a "holy crap!" dessert, no less!)??? That explains why my wifi was wonky earlier. The sheer Awesome emanating from that room musta knocked a few satellites out of orbit. I'm jealous!
