    Thanks, pard

    Yeah, we've read up

    I, personally, wouldn't immediately go the mesh route, but she doesn't want to fiddle around

    It's a hope the mesh mess has been resolved.

    One would think, once the issues have been exposed and all are aware, faulty meshes are a thing of the past...

    Been awhile since I posted here

    Nuthin’ much has changed

    The black bear was offed today
    He got in one too many garbage cans

    In other news, we took care of another woodrat



    ‘Twas a long ride down the path
    He didn’t seem to enjoy it much



    Cracked the cage open about an inch and he was gone


    Doing the drying of laundry inside these days, as ol’ sol is gettin’ rather stingy with the warm rays



    Days are getting shorter, movies are getting longer


    Beddy bye comes earlier



    Making pic frames to occupy my time ‘tween chores





    Our youngest granddaughter visited

    Didn’t seem all that impressed



    Maybe it was the bursting bloomers




    Walked the meadow

    Looking for tracks

    Found a critter hole about the size a badger would make




    My lady w/be getting EKGs in a couple days, before her surgery

    Other than snow blower territory wars commencing early, we’re doin’ good


    Keep a fire

    Gary I've eaten and enjoyed deer, caribou and moose but I've often wondered how bear meat would taste.....how is it ?

    Dunno
    Never tasted it

    The bear was put down about a mile away from us

    A hunter family (with kids) got a bit edgy after Mr Bear’s constant twice daily visits

    One guy had an unspent bear tag

    It’s no longer unspent

    350 lbs
    That’s a lota bear

    He talked about bear meat
    Liked it
    But only as thuringer or jerked meat (a bit of a copout)

    I’ve run into both sides
    Some hate it
    Some love it

    I have been dining on elk meat of late

    Now THAT’S good stuff

    Very little fat

    Yet sooooo tender
