Sunday has often been known as the day of rest. Over the past decade Sunday has become a day much like another other day in the week.
This Sunday however harked back to a by gone age. I woke up, went for a walk ,sat in the sun & watched the text commentary of the Newcastle game.
After the most relaxed start to a day in almost a year. We went to get some lunch at Logan's roadhouse. They could not get us a table for 40mins as it was so busy. No problem. I just went outside and enjoyed the sun, the time flew by. A fried chicken starter was followed by shrimp rice & fries.
After lunch Charlotte & I headed back to the hotel for a short nap then waited outside for Randy & Bobbie Joe to collect us to go shooting.
When we arrived there were already people there. JD who runs classes allowing people to get gun licences took Charlotte through our paces and got us going. The emphasis was on having fun but safely. We took turns firing 9mm, 22mm, & 45mm pistols as well a .8 special revolver with a kick to it. I rounded the afternoon off by taking a turn on Cameron's 18inch pump action shotgun. Which I probably needed some more instruction on than Cameron's 'just shoot'. The afternoon was a great experience which we are both very grateful to the Taylor's for. As ammunition is hard to find an increasingly expensive at the moment. Charlotte did have everyone worked at one stage by picking up a gun & holding it in people's direction.
When we returned to the hotel Alan & Ellen had arrived from Virginia. We introduced them to Randy & Bobbie Joe, who supplied me with a Taylor's Forklift cap & a crate of beer. Following chats at the hotel the Taylor's headed home for their now cold pizza that Cameron had bought on his way home & we headed downtown for dinner.
The cafe was a cross between a bar and a restaurant that catered to a mixed cliental of locals & students. Probably not the best of meals I have had in Greenville but the conversation made the occasion.
