Holy smokes! How would you like to see that set of antlers in the woods the first morning? Good morning all!

By Marianne Y (Marianne) on Thursday, November 15, 2007 - 07:38 am:

Good Morning, Everyone! Congratulations on your Early Bird, Theresa.

Happy Hunting to all of the hunters going out there today, on the first day of firearm season, but most important, Be Safe. And, I hope there are no firearms accidents in Michigan this year, unlike most past years. There have been some funny, but sad stories in the news in the past year, about guys being shot by their dogs, true in least 2 cases of that (I don't know where, sorry), guys shooting themselves in the foot (literally), the leg, you name it. As for me, I will be staying away from beautiful woods-type area for the next 15 days. :-)

So that's why they call them hunting dogs, they know how to shoot?

Good Morning.
Today is my dads birthday and he loved his birthday falling on opening day. dad's been gone now 17 years and when he passed the fun and excitment of deer season went with longer was our house filled with hunters the night of the 14th celebrating dad's birthday with lots of beer and poker and great the years went by it was a standing joke on the list of guys who drank too many and couldn't make it in the woods the next day. mom and I did all the cooking and cleaning. we didn't mind. we looked as forward to the hunt as them.
So as I remember my dad today{BILLY BALOWAARA)I also want to wish all the hunters a safe and successful hunt.

Good morning everyone, what a wonderful day here!!!

By Brooke (Lovethekeweenaw) on Thursday, November 15, 2007 - 10:17 am:

Good Morning, heard my first gun shot dropping my son off at school. Saw my first casualty (by car not gun) on my way to work.

By Marianne Y (Marianne) on Thursday, November 15, 2007 - 10:46 am:

May the hunters' harvest be bountiful! The deer herd does need to be thinned, according to DNR, for their own health. And, thinning the herd should reduce the casulties by car. :-)

Due to the popularity of the Survivor shows, Wisconsin is planning to do its own, entitled 'Survivor, Wisconsin Style.'

The contestants will start in Milwaukee , travel up to Sheboygan and on to Manitowoc and Green Bay . Then they will head over to Wausau and up to Rhinelander and Minocqua. From there they will proceed to Ashland and Superior . Then back down through Rice Lake , Balsam Lake , Chetek, over to Eau Claire , through ! La Cross e , over to Madison , and then back to Milwaukee .

Each contestant will be driving a pink Volvo with Minnesota license plates and a large bumper sticker that reads 'Brett Favre is Gay. Deer hunting is murder. Go, Vikings.'

The first one who makes it back to Milwaukee alive wins.

The twin spires, many Sunday masses, weddings, baptism and funeral services, all part of my life in Gods country.........

Today is my grandson Tim Ozanich's fifth birthday he is having a party and inviting Jimmie the fat white cat to it. Has anyone else bought Thomas the train toys? Boy talk about being expensive.

By Marianne Y (Marianne) on Thursday, November 15, 2007 - 02:31 pm:

We have a lot of the Thomas the Tank Toys, from 10 years and more ago. Yes, they are expensive. If I remember correctly, they are interchangeable with Brio, though, so that should help some.

I do know that a lot of the Thomas the Tank toys are on recall lists because of lead paint; and, of course they were made in China. Anyway, you might want to check if what you are looking at is on the recall list. Or, if your grandkids are old enough, and won't put them in their mouth, then maybe it doesn't matter. (On the other hand, my guys have busy fingers, & a lot of stuff, mainly pens and pencils, now, get chewed on, while doing homework, etc.) BTW, Happy Birthday to the Birthday boy!

By k j (Kathiscc) on Thursday, November 15, 2007 - 05:30 pm:

If they brought wolves back, they wouldn't need to thin the herd.

By Snowman (Snowman) on Thursday, November 15, 2007 - 06:26 pm:

I still want to know what breed of dog knows how to shoot? Maybe a Shootzu???

By Marianne Y (Marianne) on Thursday, November 15, 2007 - 07:19 pm:

Haha, Snowman. Of the shootings that I remember hearing about: one was a gun that was left on a kitchen table or something, and there was excitement in the room, the dog was jumping up & down, & accidentally got its paw on the trigger, I think it was. In the second one, the dog was left in the front of a pickup was, and a similar thing happened. The truck's door was left open, the dog was jumping up & down on the front seat, and got his paw caught in the trigger mechanism. That was funny also because the guy was shot in his rear end by his dog. Ouch! Both were freak accidents, but they were both cases of the guns' being left in unsafe conditions (ie, the trigger mechanisms must have been left unlocked, and the guns were not put away. I am not a hunter or particularly interested in weapons, so if I have some terminology wrong, I am sorry.) In a way, it's kind of like when someone leaves their gun where their child either knows where it is, or can find it easily, and then someone gets injured or killed.

Or, it's kind of like the lab who managed to launch his owner's pickup into the lake when his owner left the truck running and the keys in the ignition, while he ran into the house to get something. The lab managed to get the truck into gear, and the rest is history (oh, but that dog was smart enough to jump out the window before the truck went into the lake!) :-)

By Marianne Y (Marianne) on Thursday, November 15, 2007 - 07:23 pm:

Well, I guess you could call them gun dogs. Or, maybe their call names were Shooter or something?
