Its been 1 year!

Its been 1 year!

Wow! It has been a year since I started seriously blogging.

It all started with a Hemingway quote on Twitter. Followed by some tweets and emails and before I knew it, I was being interviewed about my hunting. If it were not for Rabid, who knows if this blog would even exist.

It has been a whirlwind of a year and I am so grateful for the many, many new friends I have met. Here are a few that really helped me get started, gave me a boost of confidence in myself and my writing and still make me smile when I get a comment from them.

Thanks to each and every one of you who read my posts, add your comments and continue to encourage me to keep blogging!!!

Also, there will be a special give away coming up soon – in celebration of this blog’s 1 year, celebrating 10 years of hunting with my Dad and I have a kinda big birthday at the end of the month… so I want to do a great give-a-way! Check back in a couple of days for the announcement!

This is proof that there was a cribbage game with Rabid. You can ask him what the score was.

My parents have had a snowshoe hare around the house for a few months.  Typically, we see one and within a week it is gone (via interaction with a vehicle) but recently, there were two and then three.  All of the adults and kids were outside playing and...
