The last picture is of one of Linda's purchases for John - it is a talking skull - it sings "I ain't got no body" - get it? We played it for all the cars we passed and who passed us. We did not play it for the customs agent who gave us no trouble at all when we explained we had been over in the States for 54 hours. The colors were not as vibrant as ours are this week but they are further south so their time is coming.
We hit the Turtle Creek casino - I walked in with my $40 ready to play and I walked out with $40 from a great machine. Linda played $42 and lost it all. I think we were in there for all of 1/2 hour. Big gamblers we are.
It is a trip I would do again in a heartbeat. We had fun.

Sorry it is not clearer but I was rushing to get the shot. It was a fun encounter.
Wonder where he'll be on November 5th?????
I am in awe of nature at this time - my favourite season is now upon us.
We are having another dinner tomorrow - chicken and fish again. The last one of the year but we will be baking our world famous meat pies - so if you are interested...there will be fruit pies available for sale tomorrow at the meal. The pies for the dinner were made today and I have been appointed the meringue maker - and I was taught by the best so I am very proud of my meringue - it is piled high...
See Ya Bye

I'm glad I was in a trailer...
The first picture is of all our 4 wheelers on Ron's trailer - they just fit. We got there and got all set up and headed out for a hunt - it was a nice day - sunny and not too hot or cold. It was a bit nippy that nite but we stayed warm inside the trailer. The next day was an all dayer - after dinner, Rejean and Ron went out for another short hunt. Mary and I stayed behind and did the dishes - I manned the fire after. We heard a 4 wheeler come in and from my vantage point I could see up the road and into the camp so I was watching for the 4 wheeler. All of a sudden, I saw something that just didn't register as possible. I saw a big bull moose running thru the camp. I said to Mary, I think I just saw a moose running thru camp - she said sure you did. But then you could hear everyone laughing so I headed up and found out that yes it was a big bull moose run thru the camp. One of the guests was coming down the road on his quad and the moose was trotting in front of him down the road. He stayed behind the moose and gently steered him towards the camp to see if the moose would head down the road - and he did!!! Just imagine the faces on the campers seeing this big bull moose coming towards them - lucky all he did was pass by!!
We cooked up 3 spruce hens (the red meat is from them) and they were delicious. The rest we froze for later. On our last day I got one and Rejean got a flock - 3 birds in one spot.
Hopefully we will get another chance to get out for another hunt. I am beginning to like hunting just as much as fishing - who knew???
See Ya Bye
