The deer are out again!

We've got deer again! They run through our back yard every morning and run through our side field every evening. It drives the dog absolutely crazy!

We also saw a bear a couple weeks ago. We just saw the tail end as it ran away from us, but it was still exciting (and just a tad scary).
Although bow hunting season is now going on, the real hunting season doesn't start for another week or two. When it does, we will hear shotgun blast after shotgun blast as people here stock their freezers with meat for the year.

It's starting to get COLD!

It might even snow next week! Although I *LOVE* snow, I do miss the summer warmth as well. So - I thought I'd share a picture from our vacation this summer. This was from the beach and my son actually did catch some fish!

The phone is ringing off the hook!

This is absolutely driving me nuts! I keep getting these recorded calls from the presidential candidates. Although we've gotten them in the past three weeks, I've already gotten six today and it's only midafternoon! It's not even a real person - it's some recording that says, "Hello Mike - this is Barack Obama (or John McCain)".

I'm not Mike and I certainly don't sound like him, but I guess the recording doesn't really care. And to be honest - no pre-recorded phone call message is going to change my mind about who to vote for.

I don't know what the candidates really think they're going to achieve since the only thing it achieves in me is a sense of aggravation.
