Went to the Gun Show with Holly and JPG, and to everyone's delight, Bayou Renaissance Man and LawDog were along for the occasion, and they are just as entertaining and erudite in person as they are on the page. I could blather on about the occasion, but I'd never come up with so eloquent a description of the day so I'll just leave it at "Yeah! What he said."
I did get a really nice belt and a holster, so I'm all set. Oh, and there had to be conchos (the belt needed a little extra va-va-voom), so I picked a set of those, so that represents the jewelry-buying portion of the event.
I must say I was not prepared for the odd cross-section of humanity represented therein, and this has to be one of the ultimate people-watching gatherings to be found, and I'll be going to more of these.
