Ah, Larry, we Texas boys would'a been perfectly at home. Only the Brits and their lookalikes would have stood out there like that. My goodness, even my coon hound gets under the house when it's cold 'n wet. Standard time honored hunters position in weather like that is sitting in our pickup trucks with the gun sticking out of the open window and the engine running. If it wuz good nuff fer Davy Crockett it's shore good nuff fer us. (And I've heard from a good source he had half the Mexican army in the back of his truck!)
