Big Red AKA Number 1 Son and I put up some lights around the veradah and the eavestrough, at the front of the house.

Left the side of the place free of lights. We're on a corner with a creek and a designated wetland area across the street from us and I don't like to disturb the neighbouring coyotes, wolves, deer, occasional moose, and lately, a Martin.

Neighbours are all former city dwellers and are wondering "What happened to my cat?"

Posters up looking for lost cats all over the neighbourhood. Tried telling one citidiot and got a blank look like I was making things up.

Now:

GET OFF MY LAWN!

HAH!

I recall them little "Kittys"

Here in Ontario, it seems some "Stuff"-for-Brains, sitting in the Lands and Flowers offices inToronto, (the Centre of the Universe) decided it would be a good idea to re-introduce the Eastern Cougar. (They tried to deny it. but were caught out a few years ago)

Last year, on 417, a truck struck and killed one.

Ontario Provincial Police showed up and their report ID's the beast as a cougar.

The Merry Men from Lands and Flowers showed up to claim the remains and ID'd it as "a large fur bearing animal".

These little Kitty's get quite big out here where there is lot's to eat ....

I have seen Trail-cam pictures of one leaping a 6 foot high fence with a 40 pound dog in it's mouth in the middle of a town ...

That dog was the third the house owner "lost" in under 2 years and the reason for the trail-cam ...

 

Cat Food = small dog

My woes? !

We ain't got enough time right now. Maybe later over a rum or three. (You know, the one Red Storm and I like: that 8 year old Bacardi the folks below the Medicine Line can't get!)

OK, OK, Knees are aching pretty good even with the braces, pills and cortisone; snowed last night and it's still coming down - about 4" on my rear deck right now.

Good thing # 1 son is home from work today HE can shovel while I try to run the snow blower after it stops.

Found out I'm now married to a 71 year old woman, who now claims she's going to start counting backwards. Oh well, I suppose she's going to start on me on the 25th when I turn 73.

Oh well, coffee's made and the waffle iron just "beeped"

Later 'Gator

According to the Doc I should be all finished with my treatments by early April. It looks like chemo will restart in early Jan based on the way my incision is healing and then I'll have 6 chemo treatments and then back to normal life. From what Alberta Annie told Granny it sounds like the June Match in Granum may not happen so it could be the Palmers Gulch match when we get to shoot together again. If the mate for the gun I won there last year shows up in time I may shoot FC. I ordered it in early Nov and they said it could be up to a years wait so I'm not holding my breath.

Yep. Same here. Don't want to spend time loading in summer. Too short up here to waste inside loading.

Counted up the scheduled matches, figured out the ~round count, checked the number of loaded rounds left over from this years supply, counted empties and started the process. (Missed four year enders as well as the Upper and Lower Canada Wild Bunch Championship's after that that fall I took and busted three ribs, so I had around 500+ rounds of .45 Colt left over, plus shotgun and .45 ACP)

 

The dry tumbler first, de-prime only, check case length, trim and de-burr, then into the Sonic cleaner. (I like my brass nice and shiny! Must be the magpie in me!)

I'll load enough to ensure I can get through the matches with some practice along the way.

 

Local LEO's did a "GULP" one day, when they stopped for coffee and saw the stocked ammo shelves in the gun/loading room.

I showed them the match schedule, numbers of stages and the anticipated round count and they understood.

Trying to get them to join us for some of the fun, but their shift schedules and young families kinda preclude that, but they have a standing invite.

Must say one lad was really intrigued by my shiny SASS .45's so I may see him one day when match days and his Saturday off coincide.

NOW GET OFF MY SNOW COVERED LAWN!

(Yer gonna disturb the cinch bugs in there!)

Come ta think on it Ah don't much care for Bitter People either ....

 

But a Bearsign or two would set right fine bout now ...

 

Mud ole boy , my local range 7 1/2 miles from my door doesn't have a real Long-range side match ,,, and Alberta Frontier Shooters lost the range they had last you was up here with the sweet long range set-up ... They have since moved to a new range near Rocky Mountain House ,,,, but with-out a real long-range set-up ...

Palmers Gulch at Heffley Creek has the best long range set-up up this way ...
