    Today is my birthday. I grilled Elk T-Bones and Bacon-Wrapped Cream Cheese-stuffed venison backstraps on Sunday. I have eaten Elk or Deer Steaks three days in a row. My wife surprised me with homemade Cinnamon Rolls for breakfast this morning.

    Man these things seem real appealing these days. Get me a little property on a creek or river that is close to some large public hunting area. Install one of these.

    Many years back I did a deep dive on alt energy. Apart from the permits, environmental impact studies, state BS and approvals from folks like core of engineers... It can be otherwise cheap, affordable if you have reliable flow and sufficient head.

    My wife has some cousins in Lynchburg... Otherwise the Galax- Wytheville twin cities is about as inconvenient as any.

    2021 Total Archery Challenge in TN or maybe an R100 would also be good excuses.

    I have two more sons coming up behind him. If I play this right, by the time my youngest is out of the house, I will have plenty of disposable income to pay a neighborhood kid to do it at that point.

    Brag alert. After 12 total awards and accolades tonight at graduation my oldest brings it home with a outstanding Athlete of the year award and then Women of the year award. I could not be more proud. Only regret is when we watched the video of it everyone starts clapping but there is a distinct "F%4 Yeah" heard from the guy in my seat videoing you can dress me up but not class me up apparently.
