...and put up a parking lot.

Well, not yet, but soon. Not long ago I posted a story about the first turkey shoot I went to, and how they still hold the shoots there so I was planning on returning all these years later, maybe recapture some of the old magic.

I took a call from my father about some family health issues, etc. and as time passed I noted that I'd like to go to the turkey shoot this year. His response:

"What? You wanna buy the American Legion Hall?"

The site of that old turkey shoot of long ago memory is now for sale, with no shoots this year! :banghead:

Who is going to buy a run down American Legion Hall on the edge of a town of 700 people?

Looks like I'll just have to arrange a shoot-off with my brother elsewhere, sorta have our own little turkey shoot for bragging rights... :mad:

It's true what they say: You can never go home again. Pretty much all of my old haunts have been torn down or landscaped out of existence, and I'm not that old! :fire:

With our first baby due right around Christmastime, I guess it is time to start some new traditions, but it would have been nice to have some of the old traditions still be around. :cuss:

Oh well.

Uh, it's probably pretty darn cheap...

Here in my neck of the woods, every club, churc, and volunteer fire department is holding turkey shoots from now until Christmas. The old Lion's club building is still standing but it is vacant. That is where I wasted many a dollar trying to win a ham or tukey.

No, my friend. You can't go home again. I can take that old SKB automatic with the Polychoke on it and win enough at the other turkey shoots to make it worthwhile. They don't like for me to come around as that gun has won quite a few shoots. Set it on extra-full and it will do what it was hired to do.
