How old is he? He could be 20. Could be more like 28. He’s 28.
His name is Bob Jones and he’s trying to get a bird out of a tree. He’s aiming and shooting. (We can’t have that!) When the birds fly out of the tree, he’ll fire. He’ll get the bird, but he won’t necessarily eat it. He might just be hunting for fun. I’ve seen boys do that.
I hope he doesn’t shoot in the air and have it come down on some kid. It’s very easy for that to happen. The kids don’t know what they’re doing, running around. That would be terrible!
This is in Texas and it might be part of a reenactment. But that hat...! There’s something funny about his hat, shirt, and jeans. And his neck has a white cloth around it. This strikes me as being out of the Revolutionary period.
Of course, Bob has a family. He’s married to Emma. If he’s 28, he probably has children. Most of them do! He has two. Emma and the kids are at home.
And what about those little structures on the right? There’s a slab of cement and a donkey. And there’s a dead bird on the ground – one of the birds that he shot. What would Bob use a donkey for? He probably uses it to get him out of there.
I would say that Bob is a guy that hunts every year. He really loves to do that. He might also be one of the guys that takes care of things when there are problems. A state job. But his clothes don’t look that way – just in a few details.
There’s a storm getting ready to come his way. Rain can take hours to form, but it’s about time. Soon, it will start raining, and when it does, Bob will run for the hills.
