They shot 'em a deer TWO actually

Mason shot his deer on Sunday. He was walking a little taller when he got home. Tyler shot his on Tuesday. He was also very happy with himself. So it looks like Alan & I will need to make good on the agreement to buy a good meat drier so the boys can make a bunch of jerky. It's all very exciting you know.

Working at our local polling place on Tueday was very exciting. There were about 30 people in line about 10 minutes before we opened. They all stepped inside and said the "Pledge of Alligience" with us right before 7:00, then the polls opened and WOW!! We were busy most of the day. The polls closed at 7 p.m. and after the county checked our records to make sure we hadn't messed anything up we were allowed to leave a little after 8 pm. That was nice cause after getting up at 5 am I was pretty tired!! I don't know if I will volunteer again to do it, but it was very enjoyable and I have a new respect for the people who make go so smoothly.

Deer is wonderful. Home made jerky is a lot of fun too. What a long day for you at the polls.

Congrats to the boys. Amazing how they can grow an inch or two in one day after an accomplishment like that! Your experience at the voting booth is very interesting, can't wait to get to visit with you a little more about it.

Hunting is so exciting! Of course, I only went once, and I was only 8 (or maybe 9, but I think 8), so when we actually saw a deer, I was like "What do I do? What do I do?" Dad says "Get your gun," Looking back, I find it very humorous. It's not the same in writing, but...

So, what I was getting around to saying is "Congratulations!" to Tyler & Mason. To me, hunting seems so much more exciting than voting! But to each their own! LOL.
