Christmas in Texas

This photo was taken on Christmas Day at my parents' house in Houston. That's my Uncle Rick (standing), me (farthest away), my sister Ellen, and my Dad.

Texas Xmas


In case you're worried, those are CO2 pellet guns we're shooting, not real firearms. And paper targets we're shooting at, not the neighbors.

Nice "shoot 'em up" family you've got there! The photographer did real good to catch y'all off guard. You have a determined look on your face...to shoot yourself in your foot. Ellen's two-fisted, double-barreled approach looks mighty scary. This is exactly how I imagined the typical Texan family: always ready to defend their territory against the Federal marshals. And don't kid yourself--BB and pellet guns can do a lot of damage if used by the wrong person. Thank you for posting that picture. I got a good laugh out it!

ellen looks mighty intense. i finally know what she looks like. can't tell if any of you resemble each other. too bad neal wasn't in the picture also. but i think i've seen a picture of him once.
sounds like a fun family.

i think i've only shot a real gun (.45? caliber) once in my life at target practice.

Oh no, Glen, you posted a picture of me looking manly and like a lunatic. And now that's what people think I look like. Find a hot picture of me and post that one, too. Although I realize looking for a hot picture of your sister might be, uh, weird.

PS-When Neal sent that picture, I said to myself, "Christmas with the Clampetts (sp)"

Dang! I came to visit on the wrong day:-). And Ellen, you look fine in that picture, though 'hot' pics are, of course, always welcome:-).

Because it'd been sitting on a table since January, in a pile of pictures I'd been meaning to send to Glen and Ellen. Last month, I finally got a round tuit.

You know what's funnny? I think the one not even holding a bb pistol (Uncle Rick) actually looks the most redneck out of all of us, what with his shootin' jacket (or whatever it is) on and the drink in his hand and all.

Glen, why do you always look pissed off in every picture you are in? You have to learn how to smile.
