Latrisha Michelle

Happy Birthday darlin. My youngest daughter. Goes by Trish now. Would have been named Hope if I hadn't been tricky and out foxed her mom. Here mom named our first daughter. I figured it was my turn. Love Ya, Dad.

Country Dogs Are Different

If anything the wimp factor between country dogs and city dogs seems to be widening:

City dogs wear knitted
turtlenecks and scented
shampoo to ward off ticks.
Country dogs wear ticks the
size of pocket watches.

City dogs answer to
"Mitten" and "Buffy"
Country dogs aswer to
"Butch" and "Mollie".

City dogs fetch cute little
rubber squeaky toys.
Country dogs fetch cow bones
and the neighbor's chickens
...dead or alive.

City dogs sip from mono-
grammed plastic bowls.
Country dogs drink from
mud holes and swim in green
farm ponds.

City dogs chase the vacuum
cleaner cord as it wiggles
from room to room.
Country dogs chase anything
that moves, including

Grandpa Buck

Went and pulled the SD cards out of my cameras this afternoon. The camera that captured the twins had a lot more pictures of the twins and a number of other does with single fawns. As I downloaded them to my computer I noticed this old boy. Grandpa Buck showed up about 1:30 A. M. last saturday night. Probably checking on his twins don't you imagine. X.

Fawns During Daytime

The cameras are motion activated. The daylight pictures are in color. If it's dark enough for the flash to go off the pictures come out in black and white. I have quite a few pictures of this doe and her twins, both during the day and at night. X.

One of my game cameras captured these deer just as it was beginning to turn light this past tuesday morning. The adult doe in the background has twin fawns. The picture snapped just as one was nursing it's mother. X.

Chigger Attack!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Ok, this isn't the greatest looking leg in the world without chigger bites, but with them it is plumb ugly:^( August is probably the worst month in the summer for these little varmints. Probably got most of them while I was out in the woods setting up some game cameras. I think our yard and garden is loaded as well.
I forgot to use any OFF. Sulfur powder is also a good deterrant. Anyhow, if you happen to fall victum as I have, you have my sympathy. X.

'The Last Time' By S.X.W.

When I was drinking I became consumed by the alcohol and what it could do for me. It was my way of dealing with the horrors of war. I drank to illiminate feeling. It almost cost me my life and sanity. I truly hope "that" last time was my last time.

I can barely remember the last time I laughed so hard it hurt. Don't get me wrong, I still have laughter in my life. I just wish "that" last time I laughed so hard, wasn't my last time.

The last time I saw my blood brother, Uncle Sam, he was dieing. It was an overcast day except for the few moments the clouds parted and the sun shined thru long enough to show him the way, as he passed to a new adventure.

Can you remember the last time you hugged a loved one tightly and wished you could just hold them forever. I do.

The last time I failed to be true to myself. I died a little on the inside.

The last time I faced Death. I lived. SXW

The recent weather pattern has made me wonder how we would cope with this horrible heat and humidity without the air conditioning or even electricity to propel a fan. Many would perish I'm sure. Makes one wonder if global warming isn't for real.
Imagine this lasting through out the year. If so, I would think there might be a shift in populations to cooler climates to the north. So, get prepared Canada! X.
