NEW YEAR 2007

Prince is asleep and so is Mimi and the Maggie dog.

Puppy got up at 8pm and will stay up all night playing computor games with his pals.

I get up at 5am each day so I was wiped out and took a 2 hr nap and here I am posting at an hour I usually am asleep. My Grandmother always said the first 12 days of January determined what you would do for each month. She had a list of superstitions that would go around the world a few times. Everytime you itched, dropped or said something she had a superstitions for it. Just remember if anything on the left side of your body itches it will be a woman and I am sure this was thought up by a man as the right side itching is a man. How come they get to be Right?

This is how it goes, if you right ear itches you will be told something by a man. But if your right nostril itched a man was coming to your house. Yikes. If your right eye itched you were gonna be made mad but if your left eye itched you were gonna be pleased.

She was a round little woman who was almost as wide as tall. Her hair was a dark blonde that she kept in a bun with a hairnet over it. She had twinkling blue eyes and a laugh that was a shrill high HEE Hee HEE. She always wore a print dress with a very long apron over it and funny brown shoes with cotton stockings. (a light brown) Today she would be diagnoised with complusive cleaning disorder but too us grand kids she was just super clean. The kitchen had to be swept after each meal and then mopped once a day. I just thought all Grandmothers were like that. Anyway she was the BEST COOK WHO EVER LIVED AND she was the queen of all the ole sayings or as they say superstitions.

Back to this brand new year. Kitty plans to be SELFISH. Do things I like to do rather than what others need to be done. The kittyjustice will be that I will locate long lost me and be happier.

I get so tired of doing the right thing. I will leave the sandbox for others to clean. Now where are my brushes.

According to Grand Ma I will be blogging the first thing each January morning. I will try to see what else I can come up with.

WHAT TOOK YOU SO LONG? I have been here for quite some time. Kittys are slow and MD is fast.

MAGGIE AT WORK

For two weeks each morning the little puppy goes to work. I tell her "Paper" and she runs down the hill like a bullet shot from a cannon and hits the paper with her nose and her whole body passes her head and she is at the right position to start up the hill.

If she gets the end of the paper she trips over it and finally will stop and get a better grip in the middle but sometimes she gets the closed end and the paper drops out all the way up the hill.

Today however she managed to get it in the middle but dropped it a few times thus paper was out of the sack but she had the sack also. She is so funny as she will through her head back and prance up the hill. She usually gets up the hill and is waiting for me on the porch with the paper at her feet. As soon as I step unto the porch, she grabs the paper and awaits the door to open.

She then will dash into the kitchen and drop the paper by the sliding glass door and then heads for the utility room for her pay. The good girl gets a begging strip and half a big dog biscuit.

The kittyjustice is that I do not have to walk down the hill unless to pick up the papers that have fallen out.

MORE SKY

We have more sky on the hill with the fall of all the leaves. Prince and Puppy still have lots on the ground to take to their final resting place. Wherever that might be.
NOT VERY LADY LIKEMaggie loves to look at the world differently. Actually, she wants a tummy rub.

SEA OF LEAVES
THE OLD RACK

This old rack was saved by Prince as it was down on the farm in a gulley with brush growing up all around it. It took him all afternoon to cut it from its prison .

Now it graces our front yard as rusty yard art. The wheels ared bent and the seat is missing but I just think it is a true work of art.



VIEW FROM THE BIG OAK

Daylight had just started to appear as I sat by the big oak. It was like sitting in a large cereal bowl with the earth as the bowl. I saw 2 deer under the power line headed right on the horizon and I knew they were heading for Little Brother.

Then I saw 4 deer on the horizon under the power line heading left to the low gap. It took them about 30 mins to travel the ridge and appear at the low gap. Then to my luck they were coming down the hill in my direction. I could not believe my good fortune.

I raise my trusty 308 put the cross hairs of the scope on the front deer and pulled the trigger. The four deer just stood there looking at each. I saw the front deer ask "What was that?" My new magazine that Little Brother gave me would not inject a shell into the chamber so I took one from my pocket and put in the chamber. The front four had ran off toward the pond out of site but here came a straggler. I lifted the 308 and used the open sites. Down she went at the bottom of the valley and she did not get up and run. The reason ole dead eye kitty had hit her in the neck. WOW I had not shot the gun for over ten years and I was still a good shot.

I puffed up like a very proud cat and thought I had best go field dress her as it was really tooooo warm for this time of year.

As I had sat under the oak, acorns fell down like rain. I was glad I had on a good hat.

The kittyjustice is that you should never ever take a gun on a hunt that you have not shot in ten years.

It felt good to be outside and KILL ONE OF THE TOMATO THIEVES.


FOX SQUIRREL

November 28 was an unseasonable warm day. My Little Brother had come down to hunt the tomato thieves with me. Well, I got one huge one that morning so I took my camera with me to take pictures if I came across anything interesting. This big oak is where I had been hunting when I downed one tomato thief so I thought I will go back and sit at the base to see if any others return for me to shoot.

As soon as I got close, this huge fox squirrel jumped on my tree. He did not move as I got the camera out of my pocket to capture him on film. After several shots, I took a step forward to get a better picture and he ran up the tree onto a tiny limb and looked down upon me. I took several more pictures and then I sat down at the base of the tree.

BOOM!!!!! BOOM!!!!! My Little Brother's 3006 sounded like a cannon. I thought if he got anything he will come get me. NOT. He did not want to ruin my hunting.

Before he could get to the spot he wanted to hunt he saw a sampling moving very vigerously and that when he saw the five points. The first shot hit a limb and cut it from a small tree but the second shot just like sissy had met the target. It had rolled down hill and he had not seen it so at first he was disgusted that he had missed not once but twice. When he went up to check it out he looked down the hill and there he was. He was disappointed as the tomato thief did have 5 points on one side but the other side had been lost in a fight. So I guess you could call him a 6 pointer as he had one tiny one left on the side which was missing.

Now after the two big booms, old fox squirrel sat in the tree fussing at me all afternoon. He would move from tree to tree but never took his eyes off me as he knew I was the cause of the BIG BOOM.

The kittyjustice is that you do not sit under a big tree that a fox squirrel has gone up as he will not leave you alone and no other game will come near you.
