Dead Bird

Who has finished Christmas shopping?  Who is almost flat broke?  Who owes your mom $17?  Me me me!  But the good news is I finished shopping.  And wrapping.  Now all we need to do is bake cookies.  My mom said she is ready for Christmas.  Me too!  But... Christmas without cookies is.... um.... well.... Christmas without cookies!  Now who wants that?  Don't answer that question!  Side bar!!

Last year my mom painted a Christmas tree on the pawn shop windows.  Lets do the math.

Tree Painting + dumb bird = Splat!

Remember the Christmas Windows from last year?  Here's a picture:

I wasn't there.  Here's how it was told to me.  One day everyone was at work and suddenly they heard a "thonk" come from the front window.  When Dad went outside to see what just crashed into the window there was a dead bird lying on the sidewalk below this tree. 

See what I mean?  That's what happened last year.

I still need to get the house pictures up.  Seven days till Christmas.  This year it is flying by fast.  It always takes forever for Christmas to get here.  Not this year.  Seems like yesterday was twenty days till'.  If you can't wait tell yourself this, "It used to be 20 days now it is 7.  You lasted 13 days you can last 7 more."

Merry Christmas,

where did the year go

well 21 days till Christmas... Yikes.  The year is gone.  The more you think about Christmas the longer Christmas is going to take to get here.  How many have started Christmas shopping.  I have.....barely.  I have gifts for like 3 people and I have a list of like 17.  Plus a birthday present for my sister.  So that makes it 18.  Where did the year go.  I'll tell you.  Poof.  G-o-n-e, gone.

Like that.


Here are pictures for you to view.  Plus revenge of the creeper.  If you are wondering what a creeper is it is a monster from minecraft.  It has four legs and explodes.  It is green and dangerous!  Back to the post.

Creeper revenge!

Now for pictures.

Grammar cat!
No thank you.
I don't like grammar.
Do you?

Hope you like you chicken gritty.
Or how about we have a pot cluck?
Get it? Pot cluck?  Pot luck?

Burn baby burn!
That isn't real fire.
hat is a good thing.
If it were real, hands wouldn't be in it.

"What are you looking at?
They're trying to eat me!"

"Sup' dude?"
"I'm just relaxing on the couch."
Scruffy relaxing on the couch.
Or trying to escape.

This is Sophie sleeping.
Good bye.


This is a post about deer.

  A few days ago I saw a deer at the chicken coop.  I think it was a buck within the six to eight point range.  I saw it when I was letting the chickens out.  A day or two after that I saw what I think was a doe run off in the woods when I was putting the chickens to bed. I had no idea what it was.  Was it a coyote?  A bobcat?  A Sasquatch?  The boogie man?  It about turned my legs into jelly it freaked me out so bad.  My mom said I had deer fever.  I say it was just terror.

When my dad got back from deer hunting in Grahn, KY he took my littlest sister deer hunting.  It was her first deer hunt.  Unfortunately, they didn't see anything.

Last weekend my dad took my little brother deer hunting, twice.  It was his first time deer hunting.  The first night Cole sat in the woods with dad, took a nap, and got so hungry they had to come home.  They were gone a total of 8 minutes.  Night two they headed out & Cole came back to the house alone after all of 30 minutes.  Dad stayed out and hunted until sun down.   Cole didn't get a deer. 

When my dad was at Grahn he shot a doe.  He saw a four point buck but let it walk.  He let it walk because everybody at deer camp tells him he shoots little deer.  He is more into provide food for the  family than shoot the big deer.  : )

And then there is my two deer that I shot.  The freezer is looking full.



 My dad set traps to catch the coyotes that could attack the chickens.  The thing is we haven't caught any coyotes.  Buzzards, & an oppossum.   Two buzzards to be exact.  My dad shot one and I shot one.  Other that that we haven't caught anything yet.  I said yet.
