the hunt?

I spent the last two days on a ranch with my dad brother friends labs and a bunch of guns.

The last time I fired a weapon Reagan might have still been in the white house.....

Anyhow. After a few safety issues ( the shotgun's safety really liked to stay engaged) I actually took a few shots to get the feeling back in my veins...With doves, quail, rabbit and pheasant (why we all went out as it was opening day) we had a bunch of wildlife to view. We took a break to buy a sickle bar mower in Woodland from a guy who has 100 tractors.........yes thats 100.

Anyhow if you say I collect something it often is no big deal if you have 100 - " Hey I have 100 nickels" ...not too impressive BUT when the item is tractors you must have ( a bunch in a few barns too) a wad of cash and Cooter Brown like mentality.....

So dad and I spend 450.00 and get a mower for dads 1954 Farmall tractor. Its raining and mud is everywhere, but dad decides to go home and we to pick up wine. LOTS of cheese and wine.

My body quits at 1030p.m. I don't even say I'm going down. It is lights out in London! I had called another hunter ( Rich) to meet up on Sunday with his friend ( now my attorney) and his son and their two dogs. We follow the labs around flushing up pheasant and they also ruin our chance at the wood ducks.......oh well. We are very surprised though at the end of the day when we run the property later and come upon a bunch of turkeys. I later talk to Rebecca, and say " Do you have turkeys?" and she replies, No.
Uh well we just shot one.......

I am going back next weekend for sure. I was going surfing but there was this tanker accident that has a lot a oil in the SF bay. Unbelievable.

Anyhow. Although I never killed anything ( the little doves were just too little) I hope to get a turkey, duck or pheasant.....
Now I want to get a deer in the winter as well. A far jump from the vegi i had been for 10 years.....

Whats this got to do with 3057?

This weekend was lost to an adventure. I never got to work on the house. I did a few times feel bad, but I though hey i could work on the house in the rain another time. It was sunny today....It was a great day BUT i should have been working on the windows in the kitchen. Bad homeowner.....

and then he said goodnight.
