Ruth the Riflewoman Gift Color by Jaguaro Ruth the Riflewoman Gift Color by Jaguaro
On my gift list is The Purple Airedale ([link]). Here's one of her favorite characters, Ruth Powers, defending her little Laura Powers from the bad guys...angry townspeople who want to pick on Ruth in The Simpsons world.

Ruth is featured in a Simpsons episode or two (voice by Pamela Reed). In one, she's in a Thelma and Louise story with Marge. In another, Bart romantically pursues her daughter (voiced by Sara Gilbert). Maybe it was the same episode.

PS: I got the idea from a kids book about pioneer days, with some caption like "Pioneer women knew how to shoot." Sorry I messed up the building and all, but we could blame a faulty rural contractor.

No problem at all. Glad your internet connection is up and at em.

PS: I hear they are about to determine that internet connectivity is a "fundamental right." Sounds silly, but I dare the critic to go a week or two without it!

Thanks! It was a gift art for the Purple Airedale. I just saw the image in one of my daughter's books that talks about "how pioneer women learned how to shoot" and got inspired.

As a cowgal with Texan blood, you remind me of
Lucas McCain of the RIFLEMAN, played by
CHUCK CONNORS.
Jerry, my hubbie & I watch that everyday on
ENCORE WESTERN channel on our DISH NETWORK set, Jag.

Of course, I am purty handy with a six-gun,
long rifle, bow & arrow...I even hunt for deer!
No daughter of a Texan worth their salt would NOT know how to shoot a gun or use a bow & arrow!

Of course, it helps when your marriage partner
is 1/4 Cherokee Indian and learnt how from
his full-blooded Cherokee grandma!

I was actually thinking exactly of Chuck Conners when I named this. He was a pretty good ball player too.

As for me, I'm decent with the rifle. Haven't had many opportunities with a pistol. Shot a decoy deer in the nose with a bow and arrow, so that department needs work.

Quite all right, Jag.
Bein' a country & cowgirl woman, it's, heck, 2nd nature
to me!

'bout Chuck?
Did y'all know he was trying to be an NFL player as well?
For the CHICAGO BEARS!
He was also in the Boston Celtics & the Brooklyn Dodgers!

So he did THREE pro sports!

As I also love pro wrestling, I wonder how he would have done
in the WWE today?

Just takes LOTS o';practice to be good at using firearms...

I knew the baseball bit (even the Dodgers), but not the others.
Nah. He's a UFC kinda guy!

Whoops! I got that wrong. It isn't Laura Powers that Ruth is defending. It is Anna.

I was wondering why I did the hair wrong.
