Our Back Yard

Here's a picture of our back yard - part of it.

On Thursday we met with the current owner at the property. Got along real well; he's much like us. He opened the sliding glass door in the dining area and asked if we hunt deer. "Not really," we said. "Well, my wife has stood right here every year for 22 years and shot a deer in the back yard."

Somehow, I managed to forget taking a picture of the lake and our shared waterfront access. Next trip.

Two of our neighbors are Harley owners and most of the neighbors seem to be laid back, do-it-yourself kind of people. In the winter there are about five families living in the plotted area next to us. Most own 2-4 of the 100x100 foot lots. Out 11 acres borders this plotted area. It and the lots were all part of a 40 acre parcel that was divided in 1961. Somebody had the foresight to buy several lots to equal 11 acres and we are so grateful they did!

Well, it's time to commune with my cat. She sat on Sweetie's son's lap most of the time we were gone and our dog Lady has not stopped crying since we walked in the door. We're very loved!

I'm so happy for you both. This is a wonderful thing which has happened.

Congrats on the new place.You really should consider getting a deer in the fall since they are in the yard. Is very easy to butcher, can be done a little at a time. Then you can it all up. Once it is canned you cant tell its deer.Like the most tender of beef cuts.

I hope you enjoy many years in the new place, and that it's everything it's supposed to be and more.

As for the deer: I don't hunt, normally, but I can imagine some situations in which having deer come so close would be to one's advantage.
