Default So, the wife and daughter left me......

........ for the week, and went to Disneyland. For now it's just me and my 4 month old Golden Retriever pup, Charlie. So far for dinners we've had elk burgers, pulled wild boar/pork, Mule Deer back strap, roasted antelope butt-roast, bacon wrapped dove breasts, roasted Mallards, and last night some pheasant. Tonight, Cottontail is on the menu. Enjoyed with ice cold beer of course, and a nice fat cigar afterwards while the pup and I patrol the boundary line looking for whistle-pigs. All followed up by late night action movies of my choosing.

Also, Charlie is pretty popular at the dog park..... the women can't keep their hands off him.

Cold hard reality descends on Wednesday, but until then we're livin' it up.

Yup. Dove and quail everywhere, geese flying over the house every evening. Couldn't get a handle on ducks this year; Found some nice ponds but the weather was too mild. Still managed to kill some big fat Mallards though.... Don't know where they were spending their time, but they were the best ducks I've ever eaten.

Lots of Euro doves in the backyard, and a pellet pistol keeps the freezer stocked.

Ahhh.... another sunset patrolling the perimeter with my pal Charlie, followed by a smoked Mule Deer shoulder roast, cold beer, and another nice fat cigar.

In the Midwest, groundhogs are commonly referred to as whistle-pigs. Around here, they are small little rodents that are very similar to (maybe a variant of?) ground squirrels. They hibernate during the winter, and come out in the spring. They sit atop their burrows, whistling to each other. Soon it will be breeding time, and the fields will be over-run with them.

I experienced something like this in Oct 2009. Wife was pregnant with first child and went to Disney World with the in-laws. While she was gone I painted the livingroom. It wasn't easy because the walls are 14' tall, but I got it done with my little ladder. She came home and asked about it. I told her I was able to get stuff done because she wasn't around to get in the way or stop me because she wanted to talk.

That's the last time we had separate vacations.

Nothing but action/shoot-em-up's and westerns, for a whole week with not one second of noise or interruptions. That alone was worth the Disneyland bite to the wallet.

And yeah - my wife doesn't even know CalGuns exists, let alone log in to read it.
