On a car trip back from Texas on 2nd December I took a moment to reflect on Jack's and my time spent here. Hope you enjoy this reflection.
As our time here draws to a close and we head back to Australia with many great memories and friendships, sprinkled with the odd trophy or two from many many great shoots. I wondered how best to say 'thanks for having us'.
So as I sit in the passenger seat with no car projects, the following comes to mind and covers everyone we've ever met, everything we have been fortunate to experience and the thought of many great opportunities for the future.
Oklahoma, heart of America
Nothing could be finer
Than sitting here thinking
Of More than a one liner
For places we've travelled
You've been central to all
Our home away from home
Winter, Spring, Summer or Fall
It's certainly the case of
'I've been everywhere man'
Of this wonderful nation
We most truly are a great fan
History graces the pages
Of Jack and Kat's story
Civil Wars, cattle trails, railways with
Cowboys and cowgirls in all their glory
We can be so very thankful
For all the friendships made
The fun, good times, the laughter
Of which we'd never trade
It has been a momentous ride
Shooting with the best of the best
Enhancing our skills along the way
Being able to pass it on to the rest
You've given us an experience
We will never forget
We will be back for sure
On that your last dollar can bet
On behalf of Jack and Kat
Thanks for having us as your guest
We will see you along the trail
'Til then, we wish you all the very best.
We will miss this place and everyone we've met. Take care of each other, play hard, laugh much, live each and every moment you've been given because life is too short!! Maybe we will see some of you visit with us in Aus one day.
P.S. I'll still be doing our blog and will probably be mixed with other stuff but hope it keeps you interested and entertained!
