    OK the sequoias were saved because they were wrapped in aluminum foil, yeah ok. Trees that live to be 1,500 years old in California because they are fire resistant not because of foil. I will say if I was leading the hand crew that had to do the pointless work we would watch Slap Shot the night before and be like the Hanson bros putting on the foil in the morning.

    I just forced myself to watch and finish Operation: Rainfall

    Easily, and I mean easily, the worst movie I have ever seen. It was so godawful I fell asleep for about 20 minutes and the only reason I realized that I had slept is right before I fell asleep I let the dogs out and looked at the clock, and next thing i know is they started banging on the door to be let in and I looked at the clock and it was 20 minutes later. It was like Falling Skies condensed into a 3 hour mashup pile of dog crap with a topping of smegma. It got to a point where I literally forced myself to try to pay attention just to see if it was that I was incapable of following the 'plot'; or if the 'plot' was just that bad.

    I am still not sure, but I know I lost either way.

    This is one of the better fall plots in the Rocky laneway I've had. I plant it for Rivers blind a tower blind I built 6 yrs ago when my Grandson was born.
    Thanks to bees I can not get to the ladder. I went down today to fertilize the Brassica, rye and clover and the sorghum that's just starting to tassel.
    I shot rocks into the bushes and see the main Bush they are coming out of but it has to be under ground because I can not make out a hive. I also saw a hornet go into the rung on the 16' aluminium ladder. So that scares me. I'm so angry. Great plot and can't get to blind to hunt. I may have to take one of the climbers down.. maybe use the saddle. But that blind is so comfy.

    Glad I didn't plant food plots this year. We haven't had rain in over 60 days now, sixth driest year on record. Went out to the farm the other day and the gate lock had been cut. Made a few phone calls and found out that the fire dept had done it bc of a grass fire the other day, not on my place but about a mile away and one over zealous fireman cutting locks in anticipation. No biggie, $40 later I have a new lock. So being proactive I posted a new sign with my phone number just in case they have to do it again. Its been two days and I've received three calls from people wanting to hunt the place. One guy says he went ahead and jumped the gate and took a walk around, moron.

    Wow. Moron is putting it lightly. Let me guess how that conversation went.

    "Hello Mr. Okie. My name is I. M. Dumas. I saw your posted property. I completely ignored that it is posted private property and went in to take a look around and I have to tell you, I really like it. You know, it'd be a lot better spot if you had put in some food plots. I'll expect that in the future when I return to hunt it anytime I want just because you said yes once. Let your neighbors know that if I shoot something and it crosses onto their property that I'm just going to keep following it without wasting time to call you or them, okay. Do you run any game cameras? I'd really like to see what you have on the property without doing any work. Oh, and it'd be great if you kept one of your tractors on the farm so I can use it to retrieve any deer I shoot...make sure it's full of gas. I prefer written permission, it's just easier when the Game Wardens check me...I swear those guys seem to follow me around. Bring it by 1234 Poacher Lane as soon as you can."
    "What do you mean no?"

    Did one better. Buttered him up while getting his name and address, then explained how much I hate trespassers and if anything went missing this year I'd be blaming him and seeking compensation. I will give one of them credit though. He started by asking if he could trade some labor around the place in order to gain some permission. I have his number and he will get to hunt the place next year while I'm gone, he will also earn it...

    Earlier this morning, while surfing BH.com, I paused to pour my first cup of coffee. While standing at the counter getting ready to grab the coffee pot, I glanced out the front door and saw a coyote trotting across the edge of my property. I grabbed my rifle and threw off the scope covers .......... it was gone.

    Damn it! Too slow on the draw!

    Makes one wonder, what would have been the outcome had it been your second cup of coffee?

    The best part of waking up.....
