my bird hunters...

glad they let me take a picture...
2nd picture, if you could see them they would probably look annoyed...
Tyler gets a bird, Derick will get one soon...

mine is better than yours...

most of the football players have these. You see them hanging on the garage or front porch. I for some reason didn't see the order form or my son neglected to tell me about ordering. Well i WANTED one, too! so i had steven cut it out for me and i painted it
i really like it!

Happy 93rd Birthday gram...

my gram & i at camp...
oh how i love the old bird

to borrow or not to borrow

so last year my son borrowed a flag from my friend Kathy. Well it never made it back to her so i had to replace it. They don't make them anymore so this was a challenge. I bought a flag online and had to stencil it, i think it turned out ok and she liked it so thats that. moral of this story...don't let my son borrow anything from you
