    The mallards have landed

    A while back, we talked about the upcoming winter.

    Migrating ducks and geese winter on the pond behind my house. Today, I saw the mallards for the first time.

    You folks up north getting cold yet?

    Get the shotgun, it is supper time!!!!!!

    Not bad, 28 degrees above this morning. Should have finished knocking that hornet's nest down!

    68-69 degrees today. Great outside working weather.

    Have heard the pellet stove kick in a few times overnight, but been beautiful days here.

    We are in the 50's at night and 60's during the day, it's just now starting to feel like hunting season. In fact I plan to put a nice tended yearling in the freezer this evening.
    I dream a lot. I do more painting when I'm not painting. It's in the subconscious.

    Partly cloudy here on the NW coast. About 50 at night and 60-65 during the day. Nice fall day getting ready for the rainy season and HALLOWEEN! Trick or treat!

    I'll let you know when the geese arrive. If you all have a cold winter, my pond won't be big enough!

    I better lay in a supply of corn. I'm a sucker. I feed them. They are beautiful.

    Cold?....maybe by the wifes standards we are....

    But about ducks.....

    I'd really like to shoot a nice mallard, thats one duck I want mounted and on the wall.....the other is a wood duck.

    I got a redhead (duck)on the wall, the taxidermist did a lousy job on.....I want to put it out in the barn to hide it, wife said I paid good money for it and it stays in the house.....durn thing is ugly.
