Meanwhile, in the Twilight Zone…

Dec 31, 2012 by

Today is the weirdest day ever.

My dad came down to coyote hunt.  You have to be pretty motivated to drive an hour in the snow just for the possibility of killing a coyote.

Anyone who knows my dad knows that he does his research.  So, today’s hunt was not just any hunt.  Today’s hunt included three Google Earth maps he printed: our property, the farms surrounding our property and Goofy Ridge.  He also was full of new information gleaned from the “professionals” onweirdo sitescoyote hunting internet forums.  Who knew there was such a thing as a coyote hunting internet forum?  What, exactly, makes you a “professional” coyote hunter anyway?  Hell, the only thing his “research” didn’t include was a color-coded spreadsheet.

I, on the other hand, am spending this last day of 2012 with an ear infection, strep throat and pneumonia.  Or, in the words of the Beastie Boys, PARRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRTY!

Even though 2012 isn’t ending on the best note, we’ve had a lot of highlights this year:

-G$ taking his first steps, saying his first words (“mama” was #1 because he is a very smart little boy), getting his first teeth, and turning one.  Of course, the true milestone is that we kept him alive for an entire year! 😉

-Trips to Nassau, Cardinals games, Sunnen Lake, Myrtle Beach and MAUI!

-Harvest starting and ending early!

-Getting below my “I swore I’ll never get to” weight!

-Great blog feedback from all of you!


Thank you all for another great year at Growing on Goofy!  My big new blog announcement is coming up soon, so keep an eye out. 🙂
