There, that is all the sun in weeks. I was blessed with warm weather for a few days and went out fishing yesterday for the entire morning catching large numbers of trout. I put all of them back except a few I invited over for lunch after they swallowed the hook too deep. It rained on me, but it was worth getting wet having fun.This water stays open most of the winter and is what attracts all the eagles to feast on fish. I am about eighty miles upstream from the Mississippi River so they work any open water in between.

Poor guy just wanted to chat with someone, he has a rather forlorn look. By the sounds being carried over the prairie, many bulls are doing more than chatting.
This is a time of year when we need to look back and find those simple things that have made our lives happy. Some need to dwell on that happy more than the sad. Holidays can be tough, I make a different celebration than what I did over a decade ago. I am the oldest member in my family and have outlived all my siblings, parents and other family. I have developed an extended family who I share the thoughts and ideas with, many of them are you. Happiness will stay with you forever if you keep it close to your heart. I send out wishes of health and happiness to all I know and love, carried on a gentle prairie breeze.

Just horsing around, this herd of over twenty all matched. I see kids riding them, but didn't realize how big of herd this family had.
A bull shares stories with some babies. For some reason I identified with this guy, I always can find a tale to share.
A Red Fox running from me fast up over the hill. With the help of Lisa Two Bears saying she had blogged for five years I looked back and realized I have been doing it for four years on 12/2. There are many who have been with me all that time, and even more who have joined through the years. It is fun to have friends all over and share our thoughts and lives.
