Well the turtle hunting went okay, I came home with two more...and ran into a friend who pointed out some good spots for the next time I go hunting those suckers....
I did get one gutted, dried, cut, and have done the dreamcatcher inside of it...now all it needs is some clear coat and decorations....then it will be ready to be sold or given away....
The two I caught the other day are gutted and are out drying in the sun....I think today I will do some work on them, if the sun ever decides to pop out...
P.S. Yes some of them had eggs inside of them but we saved them and are incubating them to return them to the wild after they hatch to help with the turtle population.
We also went to a real awesome spot while we were looking....to a river, with tons of rocks in it and a lagoon downstream....we played Lewis and Clark....hopping from rock to rock across the river, well sometimes wading, hiking this way and that just exploring the beauty around us....we are hoping to go there again sometime...maybe the next time I am here...then we can camp a few nights out there....
It was so great to get outside and be active, to feel like a kid, looking at things with the mind and eyes I had as a child....
great quality time with "Eddy" and I that is for sure, it is something we have not done together before...and even though it was a mission for me and my hobby he paid for the whole trip so that was awesome as hell....we put about a 100 miles on the vehichle too....cause after we went there we also went to another favorite place of ours, then to another lake area...
All in all a great day!
last night we played dice with a neighbor and then came home and played some more, Eddy is ahead of me in the scores but we had a blast....played a total of 10 games of ten thousand....he has 6 of the ten games, leaving me with four....I think we may play again tonight.....time will tell.
I think I am going to go hoe this weekend maybe tonight or at least by Sunday....funny how two days visit turned into two weeks....but I do need to get back home so I can have my daughter over for a visit....I need my fix of time with her....and I know she cannot wait to be with me again...
Once she comes to place her and I will have a day or two of just us then we will head to my sisters for a week visit...my sister finally broke down and called me at Eddies, and the first thing she said was "I miss you"....I loved it, and had been missing her too, so that was like so cool to hear her voice as I had been planning to call her later in the evening....
Anyhow thats all I got for now...You all have a GREAT day or if I do not get back on here in the next coupe of days have a GREAT weekend!
