Couldn't We Skip Deer Hunting Season This Year?
No, guess not. John and I don't hunt at all anymore and we don't eat the wild meat either. We've been there and done that. We ran into one of the owners at the ranch and the man he leases to hunt. They told us the season starts tomorrow so we will have to stay away from the back forty out of respect for their hunting unless there is a cow missing that we have to look for. In fact John will probably fence the cows out of there for now. I so miss driving back there to see what we can see. We drove in to Charlotte to see a house John's sister is fixing up. She hired a man who can't read or write. In this day and time I didn't know there was still anyone who couldn't. In spite of his handicap he is doing a beautiful job. My friend Barb who just lost her husband Jerome came down to visit for about five hours and we took her out to eat a barbeque lunch. She wants us to come spend a week-end with her sometime. She lives kind of in the country and you can watch the deer from her front porch. I'm still feeding my cottontail but I haven't seen it the last six times we've been out but all the food disappears. Onion skin is the only thing that didn't disappear. We don't have Josie any longer. John took her to auction Tuesday. Her mama number 12 seemed to be weaning her and leaving her alone so it was time. I sure miss that girl, but that's ranching and I knew the time would come. If I was younger and in good health and had a place to keep her I would like to have kept her for a pet but that would entail a lot I'm not able to do.
