We are going to put blue lights on the fence this year at some point. These are last years pics. At least we had snow. The weather has been unseasonably warm, rainy, blah, and crappy.

Annie and I had Bailey's Irish Cream and coffee and went on a tree tippin mission. Well, I had Bailey's, she drank some mud. We both sported our traditional hunting season blaze orange attire and decorated the mini barn.

4 AM conversation with the great white hunter.

Matt: Hon, where's my rattle?
Me: My guess is you left it in your crib many, many years ago.
Matt: Very funny. My deer rattle.
Me: Just what does one do with a deer rattle?
Matt: For 2 to 3 weeks, known as ruttin' season, the bucks have one thing only on their minds, finding a doe.
Me: I find it hard to believe that anything called "buck" only gets horny once a year.
Matt: Yeah, but he has a hard-on for 2 to 3 weeks.
Me: The Viagra commercials warn that any erection lasting more than 4 hours, you should seek medical attention.
Matt: Not when you are called "buck." You use the deer rattle so the buck will think you are a doe and come charging straight for you.
Me: I hope you shoot him before he catches you.
Matt: Not as much as I do.

Don't try this at home.

Thanksgiving Day I put the finishing touches on my wood project. I am very thankful it is done. I am not telling anyone other than my faithful readers that it was a kit. If anyone asks, I am going to say I cut down a tree out back and carved the pieces out with Matt's hunting knife.

Still reading the Bible!

I tried another recipe from the "Cake Mix Bible" I got for my birthday. It's a coconut, pecan thing.

It doesn't look exactly like the picture because I didn't toast the coconut on top. Matt had a piece and said "I would feed this to anyone." I guess that means it is pretty good.

Matt King Cole!

Put some Nate King Cole on the stereo, add a couple of White Russians and you have Matt King Cole and his big dog too!!

Just antoher Friday night in Carmel. Christmas catalog shopping was also appearing live!

Still cleaning up "My pictures"

I have been trying to organize "our pictures." In the process I came across this picture of Christina and I at National Games in Iowa. I know I have blogged it in the past, but it is one of my favorite photos. We were just having such a great time and I was so proud to be there with her representing Team Maine!

It makes a village!!!

Annie and I sported our hunter orange and dug up bulbs and planted tulips on Saturday. Sunday morning I woke up to a mess in the kitchen. Annie was rushed to the ER vet due to frequent urination, blood in her urine, and puckin. I know, too much information. She has a bladder infection and is on 2 new meds. The vet said this is common in older dogs. When did my dog get to be older? I swear she was just a puppy and still acts like one.

I am finally at Step 3, glue the pieces.

gluing those little windows in those little houses requires twizzers and patience.

It's coming together and soon to be done.

Run Bambi Run!

Matt put the beans in the crock pot at 4 am and left to chase the elusive white tail deer. I made the rounds to: TJ Maxx, Mardens, and Walmart. Did a little Christmas shopping and treated myself to Ruby Tuesday's for lunch. I am in the thick of Step 2 - paint the little wooden pieces.

This is way more than I anticipated.
