Went and picked up the newest member of the family.



Dang! First you get married, then you move, now a dog? I don't even know you any more!

I would have had a hard time moving a new woman in on the same property with my ex.  *6'  I had a dog before but she was a country dog used to going where she wanted, when she wanted. She couldn't do that here so I left her with my ex.

Hawg, nice looking addition.

Thanks, she is a beautiful dog, well mannered and playful. I just can't turn her loose outside because the husky curiosity will lead her who knows where.

Just set a batch of cured maple-pepper bacon to drying to be smoked in the morning. Also smoking a couple kinds of cheddar cheese and some cheese curds.

Productive morning so far...

Bacon, cheddar cheese and cheese curds are in the smoker. Coffee is made. Bacon is frying.

Have to wait here today. FedEx is supposed to be delivering my Redhawk back to me, and it requires a signature.

I keep modeling my retirement plans off of your posts EM. Have you considered opening an EM's Desert Resort and Restaurant for hungry Colt Country posters?

Stuck at home today. FedEx is supposed to deliver a package from Ruger that I have to sign for. So, until they get here, I'm trapped with a fire burning in the wood stove, a pot of coffee, and a smoker full of bacon and cheese.

On the down side, I likely won't get to have lunch with my wife...

Got my Redhawk back. According to the paperwork, they replaced the firing pin and the recoil plate.

It's been a very strange day. First of all we had to go to a funeral for a close family friend who died of colon cancer. The doctors gave him up to three years to live. He died 3 weeks later.

After that we stopped at a buddy's house. He recently got an artificial heart valve. The doctors cleared him for most normal activities, but told him his days of stout recoil were over. They told him no more 12-gauge (20 gauge or less), no heavy 30-06 loads, etc. He sent all his 12 gauge rounds home with us for my wife. Just counted it. It's over 1200 rounds.

Then on our way home, we get a call from my wife's best girl friend's husband, who was working out of town this week. She had been "missing" since yesterday. They have custody of their grandson. She was supposed to be taking the boy to his mother's house for the day today and never showed. Her phone was going right to voice mail. No one had heard from her, or seen her.. We told him to call the cops and have them swing by the house for a welfare check. He did so. So did her daughter. And our daughter. And two other family members. Everyone had the same idea at the same time and my wife was freaking out. The cops found the garage door open and were in the house when she pulled up in her car with the grandson. Her cell phone had updated and shut itself off, and she didn't realize it. She had called her daughter to tell her she wouldn't be by with the grandson until tomorrow (Sunday), but the message never arrived at the daughters phone. Then she went Christmas shopping.

After checking to make sure she was okay, the cops told her, there are a lot of people who really like you.

Received the frame for my 1851 Pietta project today.
Then set in my recliner the rest of the day.

My MIL is always complaining about how cold her room is at night. So, for Christmas, we got her a nice very warm plush blanket. Her reaction? "I could cut this up and make curtains for my room. Or maybe a robe."
