Labor Day...end of summer?

Up in our nortern climes many people feel that the end of summer hits with Labor Day.

But, Really, Up here in the Nort land, summer is far from over.

I don't get mixed up in the EXACT date for the seasons.

Yes, school starts right after next weekend for the majority of districts.

For me, I will be enjoying the summer more with less crowds at my favorite weekend spots.

So, keep thinking summer is over...I will enjoy late summer and early fall quietly.


The trees are just starting to get a hint of color, but it is still Summer to me!

A Fun Campfire…
I love a campfire. Nothing more soothing or hypnotizing than a campfire. I have found that I live to get a good bed of coals, then I find 3 3-4 inch sticks. I make a triangle with them on top of the coals. Then, I take a hollow piece of log and set… more
He's got one and I am a bit jealous…
Yes, I am jealous. I grew up using one of these. It was a staple for many a farmer in our small community. My step-son found this nice intermediate gas/kerosene engine. It was used back in the time to run various small equipment. What will he do… more
Just a little humor for the day
I was once again told I was getting stuffy and boring. "You don't make me laugh anymore! " OK OK… Here are a few things to chuckle about… I guess the repair bills are higher than the tips. This is an important one for most bars! .. more
Do you proof read your writings?
I sometime have someone proof read my blogs and always my print ads. My grammar is not real good and my spelling is even worse. But, I know there are many times when it sounds just great… in our own mind, but them someone says… Do you realize… more
A thought to really think about

It is time to start thinking of buying hunting land
Yes, I know that you can not see 5 feet in front of you in good hunting woods, but there is a lot of work to be done before you set foot in the forest. Take these into consideration. How are you going to pay for this purchase? Loan, cash, C4Deed… more
Our Snowball bush loved all the rain this year…
As did most of the plants in my area, all the rain did them good. This bush even got a good dose of fertilizer which I am sure also helped. I had also trimmed it back a lot and that should also contributed to the bounty. That middle cluster is all… more
