QUICK! The both of you, get dressed, drive like mad to the Double D, get Zed and Sam’s blessing, and GET MARRIED! STAT!
Not sure if this applies to you directly BW, but excerpted from comment downthread…
“What if that young woman came to you and said, Daddy he’s so smart about worldly things, not just farming, and I do love to um, be with him…but Daddy he wants to marry me right now immediately and I just don’t feel ready for that, there are things I want to do and see before I settle down to a calm and loving life on the ranch…and who knows if that will even be possible with the winds of war and separation from a government that wants us gone…? What do you think I should do Daddy?
What would you tell your -still teenage- daughter then?”
Restored is good.
He’s raised the flagpole…
I’ve never tried that approach to sweet talking. Must have sounded like Mom and Daddy. Bet she gives him the “pet” name of “cockroach”.
Huh. I don’t recall ever seeing a straight-on profile (does that make any sense?) of Jack. Coulda been a movie star, methinks.
Will this be a “Proper Howard wedding”?
Not unless the pill fails. Sigh,
Reminds me of a scene in Larry Niven’s short story “Inconstant Moon”.
This seems to fit in with today’s story line “Trump Won – Natasha Owens”
Love the part about New York and California!
Cuz it’s true : )
Offense time, MAGA.
Call it a Restoration … bring on the American Renaissance.
Randy little minx.
Sweet words, Jack…
I know it’s been said several times before but it bears repetition; Jack needs to ask Zed for his blessing sooner than later…
Question is, would father any here that has lived and loved and suffered through their daughter’s transition from girl to woman give such advice as to jump in the car and run to Vegas for one of those canned weddings based on lust alone (yes even those knowing words of Jack that are lusty aphrodisiac to this young woman)?

Jack may be ready to take his wife and build his life, and might even be aware and prepared to take on the world outside to defend them, and he might even go to Zed for his blessing and get it (if he asks before Z has the heart-to-heart with Kiko as imagined above) but it ain’t their decision is it? I have seen Zed employ practical philosophy to life, as in the wise words of the old Chinks:
“One moment of patience may ward off great disaster. One moment of impatience may ruin a whole life.”
Girl sure leaped into his arms right then didn’t she? She might well be ready right now to embark on life with Jack…but she might not be and she should not and likely can not be pushed into it. And sure as hell her Daddy will be on her side either way.
Tell ya what though, all the drama of life and the world aside, that is a beautiful moment, and some incredibly sexy art right there. Good job CM!
Probably not gonna happen, but Oprah as DJT’s VP? Heh, doncha know she and others wish they could take back their own true words?
Since I am guessing most of us here are mean old buzzards; would you advise any young person to join the Military? Police? Big City School?
They would probably be further ahead to bunker down and prepare the best they can for the next years.
I figure when the rolling U.S. disaster finishes, most all illegals will stay home where they at least know how to live.
I’d advise the Texas Rangers unless they’ve gone woke
Unless young Jack is (in addition to ranching) a DPS State Trooper with years on the highways and byways, Texas Ranger is a long-term goal, but one his new future Daddy in law would probably approve of.That said, it would provide Chris Muir a whole bucket full of storylines to explore! And regarding wokeness, maybe the Rangers playing baseball in Arlington might have some of that…
Depends. The woke inclusive equality based military we and the soldiers themselves are currently suffering through?
Or the one to come, populated by the real soldiers, officers, and leaders of that one, added to the ready willing and able new recruits like Jack and Kiko?
The military of the disunited states has been made into a global laughingstock. The military of the new Constitutional Republic of America will stop the laughter and regain the respect of the world and the people they represent.
“would you advise any young person to join…”
No. They made their bed let them die in it.
Twenty-five years ago, I’d have said military or LEO was OK, based on my personal experiences (in the latter).
Ten years ago, I’d have still said LEO but not military.
I would never have recommended public education. Neither would my mother. She knew; she drove a school bus for a quarter of a century.
