“If you are a dreamer,come in. If you are a dreamer, a wisher, a liar, a hoper, a prayer, a magic-bean-buyer. If you're a pretender, come sit by my fire, for we have some flax-golden tales to spin. Come in! Come in!” ~Shel Silverstein
While a good number of you were living like high class ladies (well, perhaps...not ladies, bc I have seen some pictures that may indicate otherwise) in Chicago, I was hunting birds. That's right. I am a bird hunter. It's dove season. Poor little symbols of peace. Not to fear though...only one dove lost it's life due to my hunting prowess, and yes...I ate it for dinner. I will go out on a limb (bahaha....bird pun) and say that many of you have not eaten dove...because I had not ever partaken myself. Well, it's a lot of work to shoot those suckers, and you only can eat the breast, which is about 2 ounces...maybe. And it's kinda gamey. So, I won't be shooting said doves anymore. Because I hunt to eat people....mmmkay? In fact, this pretty little bovine below was just about 5 feet from me most of the time, giving me the stink eye...and I decided I would rather be a cow hunter or chicken hunter...because at least I could ENJOY the food part.
That's me. Don't I look like an official hunter?
Heather and her dad....Rusty. Heather is blind as a bat these days, and refuses to get her eyes checked...so she spent most of the time shooting clouds. Or butterflies that she thought were birds.
This is our new gun. Its a camo shotgun and not only is it our FIRST family gun, it's hot. I am jealous of it myself and I own it. I am shooting clay pigeons here. Or trying to shoot them...
This is Henry and Heather's dog (the other Heather), Dixie. I mean...come on. How cute is she?
Fisher took me on a four wheeling adventure on Sunday. The four wheeler would only go into first gear...otherwise I dont ride with Fisher...he is frightening.
It was a great weekend. We havent been to Defuniak since early June bc we have been busy, or they have been busy, or we have been broke, or out of town. But now that hunting season is starting, and we are armed...and because we missed them so much...we are going to be up there more often.
To get my hunting license, I have to take a hunting course....that children can take as well. that will be good fun! I get to shoot a shotgun, a rifle, a hand gun and a bow and arrow! You guys wanna come?
I had to stay off facebook this weekend as much as possible because all the Chicago updates were killin me. Killing me smalls. Maybe next year. Or why dont you all come and visit me? Sounds good.
I am a chronic make-believer. I amuse myself. I break out in random song at least 6 times an hour. I am me. I was banded on 1/27/2009. I look better tan. I am a mermaid. I believe you should give more than you take, laugh more than you cry, and eat cheetos when the urge arises. I have always been a dreamer. Life is unpredictable and I realize everyday how lucky I am. I think you should walk with your head up, shoulders back, look people in the eye, smile, have a good handshake, and be honest. I love cold sheets, colder air conditioning, swimming, my family, my animals, and my friends.
