Of course it means I have to figure new shooting locations.
But with a Kentuckian as current world champ, you should be overjoyed!

I am, and his brother/cousin/whatever's shop is about 100 yards from my shop so I see him every time he comes into Lexington. He is living large now with a shiny new Viper.

Funny story about Nicky. NONE of the state media gave him any coverage for the entire year as he was running his championship. It came time for the Kentucky Sportsman of the Year and he got voted down in the 20s. Several of us went to the banquet and one of the guys who was actually a bit more pissed than me [all I did was call and lecture every sportswriter/talking head in the state] got up, looked at the dais, and loudly stated “Anyone who hasn’t won a World Championship, get your ass off the stage!”.

The Kentucky Basketball coach asked the sports writer who was setting on the dais next to him what that was about. When he found out, he stood up, went down to Nicky’s table, and sat with him. Several others followed. Things went amuck from there. The sportswriters/talking heads spent the next two weeks falling all over themselves apologizing for their voting error.

McBear,
Kentucky

Being smart is knowing the difference, in a sticky situation between a well delivered anecdote and a well delivered antidote - bear.
