    I’ll likely kill a tree for Jesus. We usually do but not until December. I’m gonna buy a couple of those holiday light projectors this year. Put ‘em in the yard shining back on the house and the garage and call it good.

    I'll be running guided Christmas Tree trips after Thanksgiving....free range, organic, fair trade shade grown old growth trees harvested from the banks of OP rivers, then dragged across fish redds.
    Still got a few spots open......

    Actually, I visited every craft store in the area the other day looking for flower stamens used in artificial flower displays. I figured those might make for an inexpensive substitute of for crawfish/crab eyes. Alas - all those that I found had twisted paper stems, not plastic. Darn! They are most definitely less expensive however . . . I'll keep looking.

    That's how it gets started...

    I now am a preferred member. Meaning I can bring stuff back w/o a receipt and sometimes can get 25% off a full priced item!!!

    Hell, I've been on a first name basis with local craft store associates for years, lol. "Hey, it's the fly tyer guy" . . . ladies at Joanne's have sewn-up rod cases & camo covers for me over the years also.

    When I was pitching, I was a "crafty left-hander." I guess it carried over . . .

    Dug out the sled today and dressed it up a bit. Think we'll use it this year.

    Love the jammies b_illy!! What a great time of year to be a kid.

    Melissa picked up a new wreath and we hung it in the dining room this afternoon.

    I also changed out the table centerpiece to match it as best I could.

    Son of a b. Swimmy is killing it! Pace yourself, man.

    After the wind that's coming next week, I'm going to flock a bunch of leaves . . . as in "get them the flock out of my yard" . . .
