New Addition


When I went out to move the herd on Saturday, I noticed an unidentified black object in the pasture with the cows.  It was bigger than a cow pie, but smaller than a cow and it was not moving. Hmmm…”what’s that?”, I thought. As I got closer, the unidentified object sprung to its feet and scampered … Read the Rest


Birthday Wishes


“Being in a hurry. Getting to the next thing without fully entering the thing in front of me. I cannot think of a single advantage I’ve ever gained from being in a hurry.

I did not grow up in a hunting family so the world of ducks and deer and camouflage was completely new to me.  While Caleb and I were dating I got to tag along on my first hunt, one that he looked forward to all year- the Thanksgiving duck/goose hunt in Arkansas.  We stayed in what … Read the Rest


A Little Poetry
