A few quick words

Or as quick as they can be here on this sloooooooowwwww internet.

Yesterday it was off to Fredericksburg to gather food.  We have the girl from Operation Orphan coming tomorrow for her hunt, and I really don't know what to expect.  The last one (and I hope is isn't the same one!!) was quite a large girl with an appetite to match.

I am a bit nervous about it.  The time from when they come in from the hunt (about 10:30/11:00) to going out again (about 3) is a long time.  We only will have the one girl.  My BIL and SIL have boys later in the year, and they usually have 2-3 boys.  They entertain each other.

I am waiting for G to finish his morning rituals (takes him longer than me) so we can go out while it's still cool to fill the "house" feeder.  This is where I get to watch the deer in the evenings.  He wanted to "go out early" and I was feeling guilty because I slept in until 9.  I have really bad allergies.  My right ear is completely stopped up and drainage is killing me.

It is now after 10:30, and he has finally come out.  He read his book until almost 10.  That is his normal behavior these days.  Head stuck in a book.  Period.

So now off into the pasture to pour candy (corn) into the feeder!

That sounds interesting. Does G guide the hunt or do you just let them go out on their own?

I hope it goes better than the last one! :)

Also, I hope your ear gets better real soon.

Marti - Operation Orphan is the organizing group. For the girls, if I were a hunter - I would go out with her, but since I am not, and there must be a female with them, they send a guide. The guide from last year was so interesting. She is a vet from around your area. Hope we get another good one!

Sally - thanks for the good wishes!

Maybe the girl will feel like a short nap after lunch?
