Yeah. My goal is to run out the geese without running the ducks off. The other thing is that I've got waaaay to many ducks using this particular field after dark. I'm just trying to walk the fine line between altering their habits without sending em packing. Can't wait for this full moon to be a distant memory.

Outside of the obvious name for a black lab I'm gonna say Spook is my favorite.

We can always build you one. A table saw and a router is all we will need.

Well, Tasha spent more time overnight with me through the season than I expected, and the queen bed we were sharing just wasn't cutting it, so I replaced it. In the process, I checked into prices on a bed frame and got some serious sticker shock. They wanted $800 for what I would call a cheap, pathetic excuse for a headboard & some rails. In light of this information, I decided that a cheap, pathetic excuse for a bed should start off by being cheap, so I built that one from scraps. Wound up having to buy a box of screws, (2) 8' 1x10's, and a dozen joist hangers, so the project came in at just under $30.

Pretty sexy Cannon.. I'm still waiting for some WMA boarding land to come up for sale. My plan was to just adapt one of those Pre built sheds with a loft with a wood-stove and some bunk beds.
