Not All Can Kiss My Rear End

I don't want you all to think life is miserable ALL the time. Actually, it isn't at all. Just a bit trying. I've waited a long time to meet a great guy and I'm not going to give anyone any reason to believe I don't deserve him. I just need a ranting post every now and then...

Burning the fields behind the house a few weeks ago. I didn't know this was happening and heard the roar while trying to unpack in the back room. Being a wildland firefighter I knew what it was, but it freaked me out until I saw that it was a controlled burn through the dry grass. Then it was just fun to watch!

The poultry can roam free here!!! They are so such happy little (and not so little) birds! Notice how the Turkey is always strutting his stuff? He's a Blue Slate and weighs about 50 lbs. Nate has named him 'Hank', and won't let me have him butchered - however he's getting a little aggressive and I might bring him to auction anyway.

We have apples!!! It's just a little tree, but there were a half dozen on it this year. Unfortunately we had a horrid wind storm and now they are all on the ground. I did go get them but they are a bit tart!

Tart apples make the best apple pie!

Everyone needs to be able to rant. It sounds like you have a good grip on what is going on around you and good for you for actively deciding to not let it affect you as a person. Doesn't mean that sometimes it won't hurt your feelings or make you extremely angry.

BTW-Hank is gorgeous. I don't ever remember seeing a turkey that color.

You have such a talent for photography. I love the first photo. Also, I agree that everyone needs to vent. You can tell by the way your write that you love Nate and his daughter. Keep your chin up....everything has a way of working out.

I love the apple picture :)
Make a pie and keep your chin up, and remember - you can always TP!

Rant away!! We all need to vent every now and then! And girl, I am jealous of your beautiful view from your back yard!! And those birds are crazy! Just wandering around. That would be free coyote food here. And cool picture of the controlled fire.
