Just clocked a gust at 54 mph on my weather station, and up here on my loft in my log home I feel like I'm riding in a boat on the waves. Ye Haw! Temps in the 60's too.

Have you watched your local weather? Looks like the bottoms gonna drop out AGAIN and we are to have some light snow this weekend and into the first part of the week. Sure wish the warm weather would set in I,m ready to do some Turkey huntin.
LOL At least the ice is off the ponds!
Hope to see you at the show. Are you going to be there. If you do not answer this I assume you are on the road.
I have a conflict and I'm burned out on shows and taxidermy in general right now. I have to push myself anymore to get anything done.
I have a really neat coffee table ice fishing scene for sale that I could bring, but it's not gonna happen.
There is a direct relationship between the rising temps and the activity of....LADY BUGS! Every one of those damn Indiana lady bugs that stowed away on my truck had a bagillion offspring, and now da windows are crawling with 'em. I'm gonna get you for this Cecil!
And there is no need to preserve them. The Indiana ones are of such high quality they don't need any preservation. A coyote chasing a lady bug is a classic habitat diarama!
Did I ever tell you the banana bug story? If not here it is.
A girl I dated's father was a carry out boy in a grocery store that had [expletive deleted]roaches when he was younger. (This was a story he liked to tell although the details changed each time the story was told.) Anyway, as he was bagging some bananas a customer noticed a [expletive deleted]roach in the bag. She screamed out, "Oh my God there's a [expletive deleted]roach in the bag!" Quick on his feet this guy said, "Oh no mam that's a banana bug and they help ripen the bananas." She replied, "Oh really, Where can I get some more?" He replied, "I'll put more in the bag for you," and he promptly put more in the bag. She left the story and the manager who was watching promptly fired him. However, when the manager told the owner about it the owner was so impressed he made the manager hire him back. The owner felt any kid that quick on his feet was an asset to the store.
I can hear it now. "Who's the A-hole who used ladybugs in that diorama with that huge perch? Apparently the idiot(Term of endearment used by R's. to describe D's.-LMAO) doesn't know NOTHING eats those [expletive deleted] little [expletive deleted]!
Yep...lady bugs, then mosquitoes, black flies, no-see-ums, deer flies.... Kinda makes ya realize that ZERO degrees had its advantages...eh?
How else do you think they get that nice orange color and nice dots? I'll tell you what bugs my fish don't like to eat. It's the Japanese bettles. My neighbor had set out traps for them and I collected a bunch for the bluegills in the pond and the bluegills wanted nothing to do with them.
If you're brookies were eating them, now's come your house was red with 'em? I think the next trip down I'm going to bring some fumigation ammunition. Japanese beetles...eh? Yeah, well we got Swedish pimples, Russian hooks, and Hawaiian wigglers. Howz about we try THEM in your front pond(LMAO)!
and next year when the perch are 2 pounders it will be $200.00 per minute plus $100.00 per perch with a $1000.00 minimum. But Hey you can use any bait you want so it's worth it right? LMAO
