What a way to celebrate the 4th

So, the morning started with the sound of chainsaws in the air and the smell of burnt two cycle fuel. Cutting down a bunch of trees that had died as a result of the drought last year. Then took a break and walked over to the range to do a little shooting. Well, it would have been a perfect day but there were mechanical problems to be had. We shall see how things shake out. Next up will be the ritualistic charring of dead mammal flesh and consumption of mass quantities. Soon as I start the fire and get the grille warmed up. Movies from then on out. Fun Day!

So for the three of you that refuse to stop coming here despite my failure to update lately, Between work (new job responsibilities) and home (dead trees left over from the drought, continued fire danger this year, trying to save the trees we have left, repairing fences, dealing with cows......) I've been busy and am going to be busy for a while. Probably not too many updates here. I haven't even been able to wrangle time in for teaching as much any more either. I guess this is a good problem to have though since things are going relatively well for us right now.
