New Year

Can you believe it is almost February?  An entire month into 2018.  The holidays and past month have been somewhat of a blur, time really does seem to travel faster the older you get.  The last time I wrote to you it was opening day of deer season.  I’m sorry to report I did not…

Gophers, Deer and a Desk

This past weekend marked opening day of deer season in Texas.  And, considering we have a half of beef and several wild pigs in the freezer, I have decided to trophy hunt.  In other words, unless it is a massive buck, I’m just gonna sit and watch and enjoy being perched in a tree.  Alone.…

Wicked Walk 9/30/2015

My last walk of September was, as you may recall, taken in Wyoming.  Our annual elk hunting trip hit the Cowboy State this year, thanks to careful planning and the luck of the draw.  I’ll touch more on our 2 week adventure later this week but for now I’d like to share the photos I…
