This was originally posted to Facebook, knowing that more of Shelby’s friends and relatives would find it there before they would find it on my blog.
So proud of Shelby, she has recently been demonstrating so much maturity and responsibility… if I coulda been half of who she is gonna be……. /;^) You Go Girl.
We spent some time this afternoon at the Swan Creek shooting range, brushing up on firearm and range safety. Had some lunch too.. She has a good eye, and a steady hand. Little girlz’a growin up. Makes a Daddy proud, to see her so confident .!. /;^) — with Shelby Anne Sieg.

A good eye, and a steady aim. Such determination.
Even the old man got off a few rounds
Not as interested in the 9mm CPX2, kinda loud.
Firearm & range safety : practice & confidence is valuable
We appreciate all the FB friends that have LIKEd and COMMENTd on the post.
Well, at least parts of it . . .
The sky often has a lot of water in it.
When it has way too much water, it rains.
When the air is cold enough, that rain can become snow. Here in Huntsville, we have had LOTs of rain this week, enough to elevate concern for flooding on several rivers, large creeks and even the Tennessee River was a concern in places. But here in North Alabama, flooding is common enough to not panic.
BUT then, the forecast includes sub-freezing temperatures and that scary word “snow“.
OMG, WTF, etc… You would think the sky was gonna fall .!.
Well, the sky fell today – and there was a wide-spread panic. Continue reading
I don’t frequently make such an endorsement on my blog.
This is a unique situation tho, and I felt a call to action . . .
There is a limited time to respond, or this won’t happen. This is a once-in-a -lifetime opportunity to be a part of such a unique project. Only here, only now.
My friend Earl Carter is preparing to publish a book, but this is more than a book of pictures. Earl has an ability to capture so much more than just light. He knows the people in his photographs, and they invite him into their soul through their eyes. This remarkable presence is more than photography; you learn so much about these people by looking at these pictures, as if you were there…..
Samples of Earl Carter’s Photography

Earl has been a photojournalist for the last 45 years, working at the Miami Herald, the Huntsville (AL) Times, and the Kingsport (TN) Times-News. This will become a valued collector’s piece, but not unless the funding is secured through this unique channel. I’ll let Earl explain it via his KickStarter website.
Please feel free to re-post, like, re-tweet – somehow tell all your friends; get the word out now. We only have until Sept. 8th, 2012 to gather enough pledges to get this published. This is a simple process, and a clever way to make this happen. With enough support this will become a reality.
You can get a preview of “The Appalachian Album“, and look back over some of the material that Earl has been collecting.
You don’t even need to tell him that I sent you, just go do it.
