Way too busy today…
I would say “don’t work too hard” but I think you’re past that point.
Barb, is Allan feeling any better? Shame you had to miss the par-tay.
I swear, the weekends are getting shorter. We had a small tragedy at the farm- a deer got injured crossing the fence in the back of the property, and then Brownie went to see if he could “help”. After we got him off, the poor thing was clearly not going to recover. We made a feeble attempt to end the deers suffering, but when I went out Saturday morning, it was still alive. Second attempt was successful. Now I have a reason to purchase a small handgun. Ick.
Christmas shopping is proceeding… many kids games bought yesterday, as well as some fishing tackle for the older kids. Shopping for the mizzus continues!
There was some riding, just not enough.
Allan is still sickly – its some sort of stomach bug, so you know he’s a fun guy…….
We were bummed to miss the party, but luckily, there was a backup party for me to attend, one we have missed every year because its always the same date as the Hyox party. I hope he’s feeling a little better today, but I left before he was awake.
As for the deer, did you take it to be processed? That’s a lot of tasty venison.
I did basically nothing all weekend – besides care for a sickly hubby. Falcons blew it as expected. They tried to stay in there, but just couldn’t do it.
Processed only by the other critters in the neighborhood. There are certainly places that do such work around the house, but actually, the thought never crossed my mind. I’m too much of a softie- it was all I could do to “dispatch” using the most humane method we had.
“Processed only by the other critters in the neighborhood” made me laugh out loud. 😀
Well, we have lots of vultures and coyotes… there is rarely a deer carcas or piece of roadkill that lasts for very long. The ecosystem is pretty balanced.
Yeah, working hard a-gain. At least I convinced myself to MARTA home last night instead of remaining at the office.
Still driving the Jackmobile to MARTA and training to and fro. I’m going to risk things a bit tonight by driving to Monday Night Brewing for an old-timey Tweetup, hopefully seeing some friends I’ve not seen in too long.
I need to make time this week to test drive and buy a new car. I could push the Jackmobile literally and figuratively, but I’d rather not; to steal your phrase it’s time to allow other critters process it.
I’ve always heard that adrenaline taints the meat. Don’t know if it’s true or not. This makes 4 that have met their demise due in some part to our dogs. We are definitely in the market for a pistol. I don’t want any of us to go through that again. ðŸ˜©
We knocked out some serious shopping yesterday. We have 17 kids between our two families and god children. I think our genes are sufficiently represented.
The Geminids were viewed from the hot tub with a drink in hand. That did not suck!
Debbie – I have heard that too, but you figure, wouldn’t any deer being hunted be full of adrenaline? I told Allan I’d rather have a hand gun than the rifle he got, but really, I’m not into guns, so does it really matter? I hope to never actually have to use it for anything (other than targets)
So, I’m doing very well on buying myself things for Christmas. I bought an outfit that I didn’t wear for Saturday, decided the boots weren’t comfortable enough after wearing around the house, returned them & then proceeded to by 2 more pair.
Barb, I envision a happy little deer being capped by one good shot, as opposed to some long draw out pursuit, so I don’t think there is much adrenaline there.
And neither of us are “gun” folks- I’ve killed some targets and some bottles and cans, but that is about it. I wished I had a gun when Parker had colic’d all night long- we had to wait on the vet to do it.
