He's Home!

The Great Hunter has returned!

And he was victorious! He shot a 260 lb Canadian Black Bear with one shot from his longbow. He said this was the best hunt that he has been on so far. They really enjoyed themselves.

We spent 3 days processing 2 of the bears. I have to say that bear meat is awesome. It is some of the tastiest meat I have ever had. Since he has started his big game hunting it has been so hard to go back to domestic meat. I am glad that he had a good time but even more glad to have him home.

He loves the counters and the new kitchen look!

We also started the big push to get the kids ready for the new school year. They go back on the 8th. Now it is school shopping, dentist appointments for teeth cleanings, checking out their new lockers, the hunt for the perfect jeans, haircuts, manicures, pedicures.... the list goes on....

We did manageto get in a last minute day trip to Cedar Point.

We had such a fun time! The kids rode all the thrill rides from 11 am (opening) to 9 pm (close). Did make for a long day. We only had one incident and of course the source was Boss Hogg.

Dad and the kids were out riding the rides and I took her to go to the kiddy park. On the way we passed a fountain that the kids can play in. Actually it is one of those cement pads that water spurts out of sporadically and kinda dances. I took off her shorts so they would not be totally soaked and started talking to the very nice lady next to me. Then "it" happened. She just started laughing! Why was she laughing? Cause when I was not keeping an eagle eye on the small child, she stripped down butt naked and was running around. I thought about not claiming her as mine and just leaving. I knew they would find me though and return her so I tried to runn after her to dress her.

One shot out and she very craftily dodged it, still naked. Unfortunately she ran into the center where 16 shot up and drenched her. Everywhere she turned she got squirted. She managed to get out of there and was looking back at them. She turned around to look at me and one got her right in the face.

I finally did get her dressed. Everytime we passed the spot she said "Bad water!" Would of been funnier if it had happened to someone else though.

For today we are off to check out lockers. Hopefully without incident, but I doubt it.

Oh, I loved the story of the fountains... I can remember my daughter and son doing that...He's 30 and she's 28 now so it was a long time ago !!!! My computer is home from the hospital and has made a full recovery...she says with finges crossed !!!
Would love to taste bear meat although was a little sad that such a 'cuddly' animal is now in your tummy. Wouldn't put me off though !!!! XXXX

You kill me!!!
I could see you leaving her butt a** naked running around in the water and pretending you did not belong to her : )
You could write a book; something similar to Life is NOT a bowl of Cherries.
I too love Bear meat; your husband is cool using a long bow; my brother in law use to hunt with one too. I hope you can fill the freezer up.
Thank you for coming by and saying "Hey."
I am back now and hopefully for good.
You thrill my world!!!
