An exciting adventure looking at the land and the people around me.

Finding green anywhere this time of year has a charm. We don't seem to have very long seasons, the summer and winter weather is dominant this year. The stairs were a nice find especially when ascending this steep hill to return to my vehicle. The dogs are jealous of all the deer we see during rut. I have a hard time keeping them quiet and close to me. They busted out two huge bucks the other day while hiking and I was impressed when they stopped at my command . Chasing a deer isn't a good idea, they are too fast and don't need the additional trouble. Yesterday I was making clicking sounds to get a buck to look my direction and Daisy thought I needed kisses. Missed the shot, but know there will be more. I met a fellow from Pennsylvania the other day fishing who didn't get his out of state tag, but came along anyway. He would have melted seeing my file of shots I have taken this year. Told him we just lasso our deer, and he wasn't sure if that was a fib or truth. Of course while fishing the truth can get stretched a bit, and I am the best when I have the right audience. A friend who was a priest used to enjoy my bringing my daughters to visit him, just to hear how their fishing tales grew. He knew he could keep their interest by asking if any got away. We would work on a jigsaw puzzle he kept on a board just so he could place the last piece in it to say he had finished the puzzle. He them would glue it down and place it on his wall. Simple things bring the biggest happiness out on the prairie.
