She's 82, but not ready to give up yet and we aren't ready to give her up! I fly home next week to be there for the operation and some recovery time with the old gal.

I hope everything goes well, but as we all know, anytime you go to a hospital, there's always a chance you're not leaving standing up.
Know our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.

Not yet, been walking his hangout, found two scrap lines, several hookings but no day lite sighting yet. Been on pins and needles all weekend, it's youth hunt and afraid one of them snotty nose kids might luck out and get him.

I'll be back in woods this coming week with my bow, modern gun starts this coming Sat. and woods will be full of competition!

As far as the breakfast, if I ate all that I'd be asleep in record time, I tend to hunt just a little hungry! Hunt-kill-clean-cook-eat-nap-dominos, along with reliving every moment of the stalk!

Here's a saying for you.

"Oh darn! I forgot my wallet."

Tim,
That's what you say to Herb AFTER you have eaten.

Hey Muties, Winter is here in TC. Woke up at 7 a.m. to 57 degrees.

Yep, big freeze is on, 37 here at 7 am! Got to get DW to sew that button on that back flap on my long handles. So cold here my Labs are sleeping outside of their dog house so they can see the cold, it's epic!

Attention Fellow Mutants. These words and images just in from Suspinz - Sue and Walter.

Hi, Fellow Mutants! We are still more or less incommunicado but for occasional email, so here's one written on Thursday evening. Who knows when it will get out.

Talented fruit & vegetable carvers come up with different designs daily to decorate the buffets.

One evening I told the waiter I didn't want any dessert. "Nothing?!" "No, thank you; nothing." When all the desserts were served, the waiter asked me what I had ordered. "Nothing." And here is what he set in front of me:

Yesterday Martin & I joined the group going to visit the Embera Indians in their village up the San Juan de Piquini river in Panama. Our transportation was by authentic dugout canoes, powered by poles -- and outboard motors.

This day was just the best shore excursion. It was worth the whole trip. The woodcarvings are exquisite, not only in the workmanship, but with similar subjects depicted in imaginative, individual ways. Similarly, the women's basketry and beadwork showed their individual skill levels & personalities.

Missing the patter from y'all and I know there will be a ton of ketchup to do when we're stateside again. It's a sacrifice, but ya know: Somebody has to do it...and I'm Somebody!

Cheers!

Hey Tim !!!

Finding scrape lines and buck rubs on trees is always a good sign. Youth hunt is in September in Michigan, and yeah the snot nose kids get some great deer, I have always felt they should have to learn like I did sitting in deep snow and trying not to shiver to much.

Modern gun for Michigan doesnt start until November 15th its like a national holiday up there that one day.

As far as breakfast, I tend to hunt hungry as well, but there is one big difference between hunting in Arkansas and Michigan and that is temperature, when you are sitting in cold weather, and thats anything less than 32 degrees you need to keep a fire in the furnace to stay warm, even in warm hunting gear you still need to generate heat, cause the first 2 full days of gun season you stay out all day unless its just to bitterly cold. But after a day of hunting. Its supper, drinks and darts or something simular, and then starting the next morning at 5am all over again.

Cheers !!!

Hey Sue,

Thank you for the update, I know you wont get this till you get back, but I just had to comment lest I forget to do so when you return, the photos are fantastic, and it sounds like you have a joker for a waiter on that cruise, I would have loved to seen some more up close photos of the dugouts. I hope you are having a fantastic trip....

Cheers !!!

Strange but True

Hey Muteys !!!

I found this the other night while waiting for the cooks to make up my pizza pie.

George Bernard Shaw once said "If all the economists were laid end to end, they'd never reach a conclusion"

and another,

Those of you who are pregnant might want to take note of some old superstitions: It was once thought that hiding a knife under the mattress of a laboring woman would cut the birth pains. Also, unlocking all the doors in the house and tying knots in the curtains were believed to guarantee an easy delivery.

who woudda thought !!!!

Cheers !!!
