Sometimes it astonishes me, just wandering around in the world.
The way people act, and don't act.
I keep such standards for myself, and those around me, and I am so often challenged by the integrity of those around me.
Those who surpass me, who inspire me to Pay Attention.
Those who have no attention to their place in society, those who don't care how their inaction allows problems in other people's lives, they also inspire me.
Not in a nice or friendly way.
The life of an Old Country Texan is full of all kinds of personal responsibility.
I spent every day in the company of a .357 Ruger.
I had to take responsibility for that.
I had 45 acres I was responsible for defending from dumpers, trespassers, and other morons.
I was always armed.
Now, in Maryland, I have a little more faith in the FPD, but I still need some firepower.. contemplating and negotiating.
