Been busy around here

I haven't posted much lately and have been kind of busy with other things. For one, the forum I run at The Mountain has been giving me a lot of problems and I have been spending time there trying to get it fixed.

Anyway, we finally got some rain here and it was a welcome relief on the long dry spell we had. It rained like a frog strangler last night for about an hour, probably got about 2 inches of rain just guesstimating it. We have rain in the forecast for the next week or so and we really need it. I have trees that have died from lack of rain. I don't think some of them will live even with rain that has started as it came way too late.

Just wanted to get on here for a few minutes and check in. You can find me spending more time Here until I get this problem fixed.

I rode by my pea patch this afternoon on the four wheeler and the deer has taken it over. We had quit picking the peas from lack of rain, but we got enough to last for a good long while in the freezer. The deer must have been there this morning as the tracks were fresh after the big rain we got last night. I have never seen that many deer tracks in one place before. So there must be a nice little herd of deer laying over in the hollow next to my pea patch. Sure wish it was hunting season as I'd put a couple of those babies in the freezer with the peas. If there's anything that I don't like better than some good venison, I don't know what it is.

Got to go, there's a big thunder bumper headed this way right now and I don't want lightning running in on the computer.

Glad everything is okay with you. I'm too much of a city girl to not be rooting for the deer to get away!!!!!!

Nanc was telling me that the freeze they got after it started warming up, seems to have done in the acorns and such. So you will probably have some hungry deer hanging around. Thinning out the numbers may help the rest survive.
I love venison jerky!
Good morning, G*D bless and Maranatha!

cheryl, city girls have to eat too and if you ever tasted any venison that was cooked right, you wouldn't want to eat any other kind of processed meat.

tmw, we did have a big freeze at the first of the year and it wiped out most all the acorns. So the deer have to find other things to eat, which here at my house they found the left over pea patch. I kind of left it for them anyway and glad they found it. That will keep them close by.

I had the teeniest taste of antelope jerky once. It was extremely tender and very tasty!

we're due some much needed rain today - 80% chance!

we really need it over at our cabin - everything was so dry when we went for this past holiday weekend.
