Tour(still playing catch-up ;) )

So, I promised you a tour…  Don’t let it be said that I don’t keep my promises. 😉

What does a momma who loves some fresh venison, appreciates a good shot, but has no desire to sit in a deer stand do in the “deer woods”?  She quilts!  I made a crazy quilt the first two years we went, and the last two years, I’ve worked on my “Green Quilt.”  Why green? Well it’s my favorite color, of course! 😉

Aaannnddd…where else can you have army trucks and flowers right next to each other?

In the morning, you’ve got to have a little comfort. So, remember my eggnog milkshake?  Well, how about eggnog coffee?

I had my Daddy try it.  Lol! His response was, “That’s TERRIBLE!”  Well, I like it!  Yummy :))

You saw what we did when we drove up in the night, here’s what it looks like in the light of day.

And where the momma and girls stay….Thank you, Daddy!! (complete with working plumbing!!)

And a few more sights….

Know what this is for?  Don’t worry, by the time they get here, they don’t feel a thing…hehehehe…

Yeah, if you’re a bambi lovin’ tree hugger…. you might want to stop reading this….NOW  😉

You gotta appreciate a good group of men with a great sense of humor….

For the “harvest”, and just in case you can’t read the sign…

Lol!!!  Is that not hilarious?  Love it!  LOVE a man with a sense of humor!!!!

What do you do if it’s drizzling and you’re bored in the camp house?  You talk your Grandpa into going outside and letting you shoot the BB gun…

Okay, you’ve been warned once, but I’m telling you, DO NOT read further if you are opposed to blood, guts, or dead deer…

My Little Guy got his first deer!  Well, he might have had some help, but please don’t tell him!  He and his Grandpa had a very productive morning!

Okay, there was one more pic I wanted to share, but even with my warnings, I’m afraid it’s just too graphic for some of my readers.  It is of a 13 year old girl getting a lesson in cleaning and dressing out a deer.  Why would I want to share that?  Because 30 years ago, that was me.  No, I’m not 40….yet!  But, I got an earlier start. Hehehe…
The take was great!  Archer got two, Daddy got one, Brother took two, and, of course, Little Guy got his first!!  Way to go Guys!!  Lot’s to be thankful for!

Happy Thanksgiving!!!

Ha! Ha!  Yeah, I know Thanksgiving has come and gone, BUT I’ve been without internet, since last week.  :-/  So you’re getting my posts from last week…this week. 😉  Sooooooo this is what I wrote last Wednesday night.

Oh, my, this connection is incredibly slow! Let’s see how far we get, okay? 😉
Our Thanksgiving is a little different, as I said last week.  First, all the cooking is done before hand, at home, because on Wednesday morning, we pack it all up and head for the deer woods.  Yes, the deer woods.  Now for all you city slickers out there, *read “Kansas”*. Hehehehe…. That just means where you go to hunt.  For us it happens to be a lease in Sheridan, Arkansas.  There deer don’t grow huge, but they are plentiful.  When we drove up tonight, this is what we saw….

And this is where we have our Thanksgiving…

Where the boys sleep…

Where the momma sleeps…Yes, I know, I do have the better end of the deal. 😉

This is Mr. D with BettySmiles and Little Guy, showing them pictures from is trail cam…

 Earlier in the day Dad had called to say that D had cleaned the floor for us (me) to come.  Yeah, I’m not exactly laughing, just a slight giggle…I mean, have you seen the floor?  BUT…how incredibly sweet.  Although some may call him a bear, I think I’ll just call him, “Teddy.” 😉 

Tomorrow you’ll get a tour in the “daylight.” 

The "No Man Bashing" Zone

I love men.  I’ve been blessed to know and love some of the most precious men the Good Lord ever created.  I have loved my Daddy since the day I was born, I have been blessed with three, yes, THREE of the most wonderful Grandfathers…EVER.  On November 2, many years ago, God and my parents gave me a gift, that I call Brother…love him, beyond words.  Growing up, I had friends who happened to be boys, Men of God who taught me well(sometimes I listened, sometimes…ummmm…not so much).  Heck, I even had a high school sweetheart, that I can still think of as sweet(even if his FB profile pic, this summer, looked like a stinking Corona ad, not nice, P).  When the time came I found a man to marry who adores me…still have not figured out why.  Together we have had two beautiful boys(I’m their momma, I can call them beautiful. 😉  ).  I tell you all this so you will not think I am horrible for what I am about to share with you.

So last Thursday, I get this in my email from Archer.  It came with a note of apology…that now he understands…and will not ask to go to the grocery store with me…ever…again…

I laughed so hard that my kiddos all came to check on me and ask if I were alright.  😉  Enjoy…..
