It’s been a while…

…since the last time I posted, but it was a busy holiday season and I had to take the month of January to recoup. Now it’s Valentine’s Day and there’s pics I never posted that I probably should so I can satisfy my need for order (in this case, sequential order). So below are some holiday pics so we can continue on schedule.

I also should include some pics of me at Tio’s farm where we caught over 20 fish(weighing maybe a total of 2 lbs). Now, when I say fishing I really mean drop my line in the water and pull the fish out – no hooking worms or getting the fish off the hook. I let daddy do that gross stuff for me. It got kind of cold when we went (daddy was unprepared so I had to wear on eof his sweatshirts), but we rode 4-wheelers until our face was numb. I couldn’t stop smiling the whole time and had to warm up next to the fire to melt my smile away. We also had an epic bonfire to burn off some old branches and stuff. That was cool enough, but we also started throwing firecrackers into the fire and scaring everyone. Daddy wouldn’t let me light the firecrackers because he was worried I would hurt myself so we could only throw them. He failed to mention he used to light them all the time when he was my age and he survived with all his fingers. Anyway, can’t wait until we go back.

I have only one burning desire….

…let me stand next to your fire. Those Hendrix lyrics kept coming out of daddy’s mouth the other weekend when we went to papa Dupree’s house and had a bonfire. It was the first one I’ve been to in a long time. The last one I was at was at Tio’s and we almost had to call the fire department for that one. Fortunately, this was better managed than that one. This one, I was also old enough to participate by throwing any piece of wood and just about anything that wasn’t too heavy to lift. It made me feel manly and primal. I even found myself grunting and mesmerized by the flames – I think I devolved back to a caveman for an minute.

I had a blast and it was good family time – can’t wait to do it again. I told mommy and daddy we could do it in our backyard next time. I’ll let you know how that works out.
