I’m just back home from the holidays. This year, Diane and I went to Texas. While out-of-state hunters still get the shaft, at least they do offer a not-horrendously-priced 5-day small game license. Yes, getting multiple ones of that still worked out better than the full out-of-state license for a year. Anyway, if you’ve wondered if I fell off the face of the earth, no; but I could have hung out a “Gone to Texas” sign. Once I get some things organized, I’ll put up some pictures.
When we got home, we had to do a few fix-up things concerning the gate in the yard, the hawk mews, and the game bird pen. But for once the temperature was mild enough here to allow us to go out in T-shirt and jeans. That apparently is not expected to last long.
