oh, deer

Brian went hunting on the first day of buck and snagged his first non-vehicular deer. Some people around here were surprised to hear it was his first. But, unlike most people, he hasn't been hunting since he was a teen--he just started a few years ago.

Anyway, he picked up the meat this week and now our freezer is officially full. Between that and the side of beef I split with my mom this fall, there is plenty for carnivores to eat at our house. Not sure what I'm going to do with all of it. But, I think it's going to involve a smoker.

the big bad city

I didn't even think I was in the mood for an Ed McBain book, but it turns out I'm always in the mood for an Ed McBain book. This one was from his Carella series, which is my favorite. Nothing special going on just some good crime fiction.

My rating: 3.5/5

Today is Buster's 10th birthday! That's a lot of barking. The old guy isn't slowing down, though (ok, so he might sleep a little more than he used to). So, I guess this means we have two really old dogs (Lizzy turns 16 next month).
