The Buck Stops here....
How abou that rack? Robin's cousin Lloyd shot this 16 point deer recently. He said it weighed in at 185 lbs. He said this was the largest rack he has ever shot and yes, he was shaking when he saw the rack but did not fully appreciate the size and number off points until he got right up on it - and started getting the shakes all over again. That is quite a trophy buck.
We spent the evening in Bogalusa visiting with family. That is where we saw the pictures of the deer and the antlers. The food was way too good. I almost ate too much! That is one thing I have to be careful about - this time of year is dangerous for guys like me that can "graze". The food was good, yes, but getting to spend time with family means a whole lot more. That is another main reason for the season.
Life passes so fast, it is so short and yet in the beginning it seems as though it is not passing fast enough. Then you find yourself wanting for it to slow down, especially as the kids get older. This tells me that our time here is very brief, a one shot kind of thing if you will. So, I want to give it my best shot.
I would like to take this time to wish all of you a very blessed Christmas. That God's Presence would grace all of your family/friend time and that Jesus would be lifted up.
More later . . .
