It is the day after Turkey day and I got talked into shopping.Well, not so much of shopping but driving.With her knee doing well  and just a few things she feels she REALLY needs,we will be heading out.But the plan is easy.   I drop her off at the door and go park. She calls me when when is actually checking out.I drive up to the door and she gets in.3 stores, 3 ins and outs and then I head for home.I am lucky that in 2 stores the items was already on reserve.I don't know how where or what, but it means I will be home in short order!

It has been a long day.I just need to pretend that I am alone and sending funnies to friends.Sometimes this site is just what the Dr. ordered. A place to vent even if you are not specific about it.To all  my friends here I say thanks for that.

Black Friday shopping is almost upon us.I for one don't get it.People will stand in line for hours to get into a store only to find they ran out of the item they wanted.There a is pushing and running and even a few fights.All for a few dollars saved.Sorry, I will keep my head buried under my covers! And if it snows???

Our tradition is to raise our own.This year we have a hen.Her name is Mary.Remember I am on old farm boy and some things die hard,.So, Mary has been living the good life.She is plump and ready for our meal.The deed will be done on Tuesday.   There needs to be a couple of days for cool down and thenit is into the oven.There is noting like a fresh non frozen bird for Thanksgiving. Now if I can only find that darn bird.  Have not seen her in a couple of days.

Well, I will try this again.I have a neighbor who is of   Native American decent.We were taking about food and  hunting.He asked me if I knew the definition of a Vegetarian.I said, Yea, it is a person who abstains from eating the flesh of an animal.He replied that that was the white man's definition.The real definition is Bad Hunter! I guess I can not argue with that!

I was listening to some people in a diner I just left an hour ago.We got about 2 inches of fluffy snow.You would have thought we were in a 3 day blizzard.It made me think of the old tongue on the metal post.I have seen it and also how bad it is when you tear it off the metal.So when this cartoon was dropped into my lap I had to share it.

Snow in Minnesota is nothing to write home about.But people are complaining about the weather.But in all reality this is more the norm from some years back.But many people forget the cold early November days.I remember.Maybe it is because of the farm raising I had.We worked hard and many a day we had to thaw water pipes.I remember doing this in early November many times when we should have been hunting. For those who talk about global warming, you should be happy with the cold we have had the last two months.As for myself, it is what it is.Tomorrow will be another day of cold or maybe warm ( at least thawing) hopefully we see the sun.And we will go about our business waiting for spring to come! My wife's sentiment exactly

The election is almost over, it is just the kiss and cry area that needs to finish up their work.Some people are talking doom and gloom and others are saying they will change the world.One thing is for sure.  The sun will come up tomorrow.We will go back to work  and things will look much the same.Yes, in the future things may change but for the immediate future the sun domes upin the morning and set in the evening. I will sleep well tonight!

Cat owners will say...that their fur-ball rules the roost.Well I heard a cute story and I think cat lovers will agree. 21 dogs and a cat died in an accident.At the pearly gates they were asked by St. Peter...Way should I let you  in.The first dog a German Shepard said. Well, I have been a guard dog wiht the local police.   have put my self in harms way to protect the public.Well,  you certainly can come in.The second dog, a Rottweiler replied.   "I was a guard dog also but for my business owner who ran a auto salvage yard.  I protected the business and his family."   Yes that is good, you may come in.Next St. Peter looked at the cat who was looking with furrowed eyes looking up a St. Peter.       "Well said St. Peter to the cat."The cat in a very somber tone..."Sir...YOU are in my chair...

I woke up about 6 am.  I was smelling the flowers.They were pretty and the fragrance was strong.But when I looked out the window...it was brown and grey.There were no flowers or leaves on the trees.No Hummingbirds or butterfly's No, the world has no ended. I will weather the changes until the flowers and leaves return

If you have followed my blog the last few days, you know I am deer Hunting. My clients, city folk all the way asked why I hunt and what could be so enjoyable. Well I told them this is what I saw today...14 species of birds all day long.Rabbitsa Partridge.a black squirrelmany many grey squirrelsAnd way to many littler ed pine squirrels.I also say a fox and flash of a coyote. And yes, 7 deer which are still walking along. It is mother nature at it's best! Although a nice buck, still not the big boy I am after

I can hear it already...How can you  compare the two? Well, both take preparations, and precautions.They both have a way of claiming success. Although for many hunting is More about the chase than the harvesting.I have followed a deer for nearly 2 mines in snowstorm only to take a dozen photo's.Similar is finding the right home.  We have to search for our quarry and then see if it will work for our clients. Real Estate is much like hunting for me, it is the chase that is the most enjoyable most of the time. Many a deer has grown old because of a sleeping hunter!

I have my list and I am checking it twice and even 3 times.It is my  list for what I take in my back pack for hunting.Snacks, water, dry gloves just to name a few.I should not be worried, I am hunting about 300 yards from the house.I sold my large parcel last year.So I am relegated to a small piece of land. But it is all good.My goal has not changed.I hope to get some great pictures in the process!  Now if I only find where that deet is hiding!
