Tuesday Morning Mystery


Taffy was very, very interested in something on the other side of the fence this morning.  She wouldn’t budge from this spot and kept barking and digging.  I went out to see what the fascination was, only to find absolutely nothing of interest.  Time went on and she kept carrying on, so I decided to take a closer look outside the fence.


I moved some leaves and fluff and found these little guys.  Some dumb bunny decided to nest right by the fence.  I covered them back up and tried to come up with a plan to keep the dogs from tunneling out of the yard.


This probably isn’t going to work, but it was the best I could come up with on the spur of the moment.  Now Taffy is pacing from one end of the tarp to the other.

Moth Hunter

Make sure to turn your volume up all the way.  Lily gets very vocal when hunting moths.

Glen shot three deer

Glen called home yesterday afternoon and the first words out of his mouth were, “You owe me a freezer”.  I was all like, Yay you shot two deer!  Nope, he shot three.  So we definitely need a new and bigger freezer.  Now I just hope the freezer is delivered before the deer are processed and ready to come home.


Deer Season Opens

This past weekend rifle season for deer opened.  This makes Glen a very happy boy.  Unfortunately this past weekend was warm and extremely windy.  Not the best conditions for hunting.



I told Glen if he shoots a deer, preferably two, I would fork out the dough and buy us a nice, big upright freezer.  Sadly, no deer yet.


Just imagine the deer in the target.  Here’s hoping for having to shell out big $$$ for a freezer

It’s Dove Season

Sunday morning dove season opened.  Glen got up bright and early only to be rained out by a pop up thunderstorm.  Glen and the neighbor decided to try their luck again that evening with much better results.  Yesterday we had dove for supper.  I had never eaten dove before, and found it to be quite tasty.  Glen seasoned them up three different ways.  He created an oriental marinade, habanero rub and Tastefully Simple Tuscan Herb.  I tried the habanero and it was way too freaking hot for me.  The Tuscan Herb was my favorite.  We also grilled fresh corn on the cob.  It tasted good, but holy cow it was chewy and stuck to all of my teeth.

A Note From Abroad

“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sailaway from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” ~ Mark Twain
