Almost finished chopping up the giant black walnut I dropped a few weeks ago.

Killed 3 chains on one cut only to find a dozen jacketed bullets within the middle 10" of the tree. Was 30" diameter at that point.

They were not from me. The only fmj bullets that could be in trees would be on the west side of my property. I mostly shoot plain lead 22s but an occasional 9mm or 38 might drop a raccoon if I see one and that's what's on my belt.

These looked like full rifle rounds 308 or 30-06.

Anyway. My back isn't up for splitting any more of it. Theres 5 or 6 logs left to split and they're probably 200lbs or more each. I felt like I was flipping tractor tires in a crossfit gym moving those logs to the splitter. Thank God I bought a splitter that tilts vertically. I'd never be able to lift those.

Hanging around while our oldest granddaughter has soccer practice. I’m totally amazed that two parents would sit in their vehicles with the engines running for the entire time! I guess the cost of gas doesn’t bother them one iota! Brick wall

Around here I'd say it was because it was cold outside. No idea what the excuse would be in your beck of the ocean

Well, it is 79 degrees right now (…with the wind-chill factor seems more like 76…) so I guess it’s too warm for them?

Storm coming in and temps only getting up to 64 with a chance for a little rain. It will be back into the mid 70's in two days. Gotta get out there early.

Up, coffeed, dog walked... saw a deer on the morning walk through the neighborhood. What kind? I dunno, but Tank did not want to chase it. It scared the crap out of a cat. Walked across the street, car slowed down for it, then it ducked into a yard to get back to the woods.

Kinda cool. Had a small rack on it... maybe 120-150 lbs?

I'm funnin with ya....deer down here are notorious small. There's very little for them to eat and most graze around lakes and creeks...and that brings me to swamps. Just not like sorgum, corn, apples and beets for them to forage on to get huge.

Tall, spindly legs. Didn't get a great look, but it had a small set of antlers. Not sure how many points. Wife and I were looking at it, watched a cat sh*t itself and bolt... Tank had his nose to the ground (as usual) so I don't think he saw it until it was headed through the yard.

When he sees small game, like armadillos, geese, ducks, cats... he wants to chase. He chases the small lizards and kills them and leaves 'em there. Would love to see what he'd do with an iguana. My guess is - "crunch"... "shake"... dead.

Another day of leaf blowing and dog walking. Good to have 12,000 steps in the bank by noon.
Winds are up today on our way to another 70 we don't deserve.
Tomorrow through the weekend it is looking like cold (seasonal) temps and 2-3 inches of rain.

Great nap weather.

Finally caught one of the skunks. But it was a lil juvenile. I think momma skunk moved in mid summer to have her babies and this was one of them. Didn't have much stink to it, but I got it with a clean killshot don't think it had time to spray.

Dug around the garage and shed and found two more traps. Chained em to trees baited and set em.

I been slacking on the critter culling. Think I've only shot one raccoon since last spring and that wasn't even a trap kill. That was the rooster woke me up at 3am and I went outside in my underpants to find a fat raccoon trying to pry the roof open again. Must've been the fugger that got in through the roof 2 years ago and killed everything. Shot him from the deck and went back to bed.

Cause I been slacking, I won't be surprised to catch three a night for a while.

If only they were good eating. Seems like such a waste tossing 50lbs of meat in the compost pile every week

Got my seasonal flu shot, not COVID, at my allergy Doc's office yesterday. Holly cow, I feel worse than when I had COVID. This is the first time I'v ever had much of a reaction to a flu shoy. mayve feverish and a sore arm. This time I feel like crap and I've got crud draining that is causeing a lot of coughing. Ithought I had COVID again, so I took a COVID test, but it was negative.

Got mine a couple of weeks ago and had that reaction for the first time ever also. It only lasted about one day.

Gene Rebound Friday. Am all for that.
Spoiled with a couple more hours of early September weather before we the November Wisconsin awakens mid morning.
Average high today is 48. Current temperature is 63.
Need to get the greyhound moving.
Four hours of leaf management over the last two days provided the benefit of a combined 22.5 miles of walking.

Dragging a bit this morning.

Good Friday Morning! It's an overcast 51° on the way to 78° today.

Morning gents. Kinda cold this morning since a front passed yesterday. 43/63 and sunny.

We closed on the mountain house sale yesterday. A little sad and happy at the same time but the unsolicited offer was just too good to pass up. Haven't decided what to do with the loot but there is going to be a big capitol gains tax to calculate first.

I made burgers yesterday pan fried in wagyu beef tallow.

I also fried my right hand. Immediately wrapped it in ice and kept it iced for about 6 hours. It's a balloon this morning. Can only use my left hand. 700 degree oil on skin isn't the best idea.

Major wind rolling in overnight. Getting put on storm duty for the expected outages. Let's hope it's not too bad.

Up at 5. Did the coffee and the dog walk... then we did a short road trip to St Augustine to walk around and have lunch. Pupper liked the walking and new smells... back at home.

Sinus infection coming on, I can feel it. Time to start flushing with saline and see if a little bourbon won't kill it. I'll drink the bourbon, not flush my sinuses with it... although that'd prolly get me drunk as hell.

We got a piece of the southern end of the storm and got 50-60 mph gusts and 30 mph pretty much constant.
