If you’ve been to The Farm, you know that Jim handles the
outside and I handle the inside. This is really true when it comes to the
hunters. I don’t have any idea where to tell them to go hunt and what to do
when they shoot something.
Well, this past week we’ve been busy with many hunters. The
weather has been a little cold and rainy, but people still seem to be having a
good time. Jim wanted to run into town, and I told him that as soon as you get
down the road, the hunters are going to come in and want to look at the maps
with you to talk about where to hunt next.
“No,” he said. “I’ll be back before then.” And sure enough,
he wasn’t gone a half-hour before a few guys came in. So I thought, where should I send them?
I had no idea,
so I just guessed that maybe there would be some birds out on one of our trails
where there are some pines and balsam. Mostly, I picked it because it’s a nice
walk so at least they would get to see some scenery.
Well, wouldn’t you know, they came back in a few hours later
and said they flushed five birds. So I guess I knew what I was talking about.
Makes me wonder if maybe Jim should try his hand in the kitchen!
