When they close the range for deer season and you have to pack up the long gun...

When the rains haven't come...

When you are trying for incognito at the parish picnic and your neighbors shout Hello and call your name, just as Padre is shaking your hand...



  1. The life of Brig, the magnificent!

  2. Brighid,
    I find myself coming to yours and Home on the Range blogs more and more. I enjoy the renewal of my soul and the pictures that you both post. I know life is busy for you, but I know I speak for many when I say that I appreciate the effort when you are able to post.
    My life is happy and I am married to a wonderful woman, but I also like to see how people from different places in the country with different perspectives see things. Thank you for letting me see a part of your life. May you continue to enjoy many more years.

  3. I don't 'see' you being incognito... EVER! :-)

  4. I missed you at the Bass Pro Shop! Cool place.

  5. LL: Damn Straight! LOL

    PIGPEN51: Thank You for the kind words, they mean a lot.

    OLDNFO: Doesn't seem to keep me from trying... maybe the flaming red wig is too much...

    WOODSTERMAN: I missed being there to see you in action!

  6. What IS that thing in the first picture? I've never seen anything like it.

  7. Jenny: that thing is a compressed air cannon, used for 'punkin chukking.' I think the record for blowing an intact pumpkin out of one of these babies is around 2300 feet (almost half a mile). Most use punkin chukkers trebuche's (an ancient siege machine), but compressed air cannons are most excellent as well.

  8. Thanks, Fredd! I had no idea that "sport" existed, but I feel more pleased with the world now, somehow.


  9. JENNY: see Fredd's explanation.
    FREDD: Thanks for explaining the pumpkin cannon, you did a much better job than I would have.
