Friday I took the kids to our place for ‘science class’. Caught 2 coons, a pile of tadpoles, and the little girl picked a bunch of wildflowers.

Due to the virus, plans are being cancelled, including birthday parties. A friend of ours daughters party was one of them. Several kids in our community made signs for her and sat in the yard to whoop and holler when she drove by to see. It was a pretty neat way to show some love to friends even though this crazy time. Here is my crew with their sign.

No killing involved.....but we cleaned the shop a little bit. I found some old headlights from my dodge and chuncked them on the ground. My son says...”Dad, can I smash it??!” Both boys got a headlight and had a ball.

The wife had a front row seat to the show.....I swear my dog is a Democrat.

Me and a buddy went out to set a hog trap.

Granddaughter came along and was dying to shoot. She hit an old Roundup jug from 25 yards, and center punched an old feed bucket on the next shot.

I was very impressed. And now she wants her own 1911

So proud

My girls have been enjoying fishing every afternoon. They’ve been having a blast catching perch off a rooster tail, and even more fun when my oldest hooked and landed a 7 pound channel cat.

We don't give them much of a break around here. Kids love catching them, and I love eating them.

We are too, business as usual except no overtime. Kids are out of school and I have quite a bit of time off. We're making the most of it.

The kid in me went camping and fishing over the weekend. It was great, no one within a 100 foot of my fishing spot on the bulkhead and people kept their distance.

We got a basic little treehouse built that hangs over our fence with a view of the pond. I still need to put some rails up and I have a stack of cut crepe myrtle branches I'm going to use.

The boys threw the tents up last night, they made it almost till 11 before they decided to come back in lol.
