Getting Something Done


While we were tooling around Vicksburg, some work got done Saturday. Austin, Michael and Burney were on the wood splitting and stacking detail. They did a great job and got us enough firewood ready so that we do not have to burn furniture when it gets cold.

Sunday came and Mark, Burney and I went over and put a new stand up. It is on the side of a large knoll and looks down into a bowl where we have cut out a new field.
It is a very pretty and scenic spot. Hey! The Scenic Stand!







While we were doing that, Paul led his delegation over to the cornfields. Their job was to pick and shuck two big barrels of corn. By the time we got there, they had almost come to blows. Mark and I sat back and laughed as they argued. Here are some of the exciting pics of the corn shucking.

That time of year! And loving every minute of it.

I have to say, picking and shucking two big barrels of corn doesn't sound like much fun. Sounds like you had the better job putting up the Scenic Stand.

Nothing like the smell of a gulf coast lawyer shucking corn in the morning.

2 barrels of corn. You all wouldn't be planning on baiting any DUCKS would you?

"Corn shucking"... funny. Someone commented on my blog recently that they thought it was funny that I said we were "peeling" corn. I didn't know I was doing it wrong! I guess I better learn to start shucking.

Wow! Looks like a great stand location. Can't wait to read about the deer take at that location.

Ok So..what about shucking the corn made them turn on each other? Was it the trading of secrets or Orville Redenbacher *That I call Orville Bread and Butter* or was it that they ran out of Forest Gump ideas on the 50 ways to use corn?

fried corn
popped corn
boiled corn
creamed corn


ya get the idea...??

lurve ya man,
