This little boy was upset because someone stole his pumpkin and I know how he feels. I grew a prize-winning giant pumpkin once, and someone stole it off of my porch. I was upset at the time and I was an adult! I’m glad the Mom gave the thief a piece of her mind through this sign, but what would have been even better is if the thief’s parents had taught him when he was little, stealing is WRONG! You are breaking one of the 10 Commandments and if I catch you stealing I will punish you in a manner you will never forget. That is what happened to me, so now I know right from wrong. In case you have forgotten some of them, here are the 10 Commandments.
Have a Happy and Safe Halloween!

Ah, to be young again, this song gives me goose bumps everytime I hear it. Frank was the master of lyric phrasing, let’s give it a listen.
I saw this fellow sitting on the desk greeting people coming into the local Humane Society office. I took his picture and sent it to Sweet Thing and said he was looking for a good home. She said “NO!”
I saw this girl sitting outside of a store and sent the picture and said she was looking for a home and Sweet Thing said “NO!”
A local rescue society was outside of Tractor Supply trying to find home for these puppies, Sweet Thing said “NO!”. I knew she would, we have plenty of animals to care for already, I was just jerking her chain a bit!
I also encountered this Great Pyrenees as I was working this week. I was on my ATV and I needed to go down that dirt lane to reach a field, and this lane just happened to be right beside his house. Usually he doesn’t come this far from the house, but today he did and he would not let me pass. I wasn’t going to argue with him, he is the size of a small pony! After I get the homestead completely fenced in, I am thinking about getting one of these dogs myself. Shhh! Don’t tell Sweet Thing, she doesn’t know. Any of you have a Great Pyrenees?
Some stores in my area finally have some bulk ammo for sale. I picked up these two boxes at Wal-Mart, and I picked up some 9MM from Gander Mountain last week. The ammo from Wal-Mart was priced the same as it was prior to Sandy Hook, but the Gander Mountain ammo was about 20% higher. I am glad to finally see the supply increasing a bit, but there is still not any 22LR to speak of, and what little there is on the shelf is selling for 20 cents a round. No thanks, I’ll pass. I haven’t shot any since last winter. I had a supply laid by, but I wasn’t sure when or even if I would be able to replace it, so I have just been holding what I had. Now I feel comfortable enough to put one box back for later and shoot the other box to keep in practice.
It feels good to have ole’ Bessie bucking in my hand again! How is the ammo supply in your area?
