Wrapping Up Friday
Today I have to pick up Miss Denise at the airport in Memphis. She has been in California for the last two weeks visiting her son, Josh, who has just graduated high school and she made the trip for his Graduation and to visit all her old friends. It has been mighty quiet around here without her. I sure am glad she is coming home, our crazy dog is a handful without any help.
Received a pic from my friend, Marian about her new hunting camp near Vicksburg. It is not too far down the road from us and I hope to get over to visit this summer. She and Bob are very excited about it and seem to feel like they have fallen into a group of old friends. I wish them luck hunting there and think it will be a good match too.
My brother James recently sent this pic of his daughter Eleasah with a nice bear that she took. These kids are in the wilds of Alaska and have to know how to hunt and shoot as soon as they are able to even lift a rifle. She is a pretty little thing and we hope to see them in October.
I posted about our work camp recently and it was hot, hot, hot. Luckily I broke the tractor late Saturday afternoon so that we did not all die of heat exhaustion.
After the work is done and as the sun dips below the treeline is the perfect time to gather at the back table for a cold beer and talk before supper is started. Sometimes deer come out in the fields for us to watch as we discuss the day. Nothing like an ice cold beer after a day of 100 degree heat.
