I couldn't repeat that accident if I tried. My skin is very thin, and I make it a point to try to take care of it. I had one wound on the same leg that put me in a wheelchair for a year. I ended up getting a huge skin graft on the wound. I still have the wheelchair as a reminder to take care of my skin.

I mixed up a big batch of hamburger for jerky. 4 pounds of farm raised beef and 4 pounds of organically raised gmo free venison. Choose your weapon.

Just out of curiosity - how do you know what the deer have been eating?

Since these are raised deer, I would guess the same way you know what any other free ranging animal eats. The person / people raising them know where they have access to food.

I didn't see where he said they are raised deer. It's really difficult to contain deer.

What are you doing?

I suspect Farmer Jon was being facitious. His deer were probably wild harvested, and ate whatever they wanted. Our wild deer here just help themselves to whatever I've planted. It's all non-GMO. They don't care.

We debated a 45 minute each way Costco run, then decided we didn't want to brave the rainy cold ickyness, so we just hung out at home. Got a load of laundry done, that's about it.

Somebody make it STOP!

Trying to list the blessings in my life. At this moment, it looks like the Klondike Dark Chocolate coated ice cream is topping my short list.

The dryer came. Himself got it hooked up in record time. As in it took forever to get the two segments of dryer vent hose connected. AND the poor guy bled all over the dryer, the floor, and the step stool.

Finally I get to wash clothes. Yay! I'm almost out of sox. Wait - what? Why will the washer door not latch? (I have a front-load washer) Arrrrrrgggghhhhh! The connector part in the washer has a broken piece of plastic and the latch in the door can't get in. At least it's only 9 years old, so finding parts won't be an issue. Himself will be looking for the best deal for that part online - right after he finishes HIS Klondike bar!

Gotta keep laughing so I don't start crying.
