~~My daughter flew home to Tampa today~~
She’s my treasure.
She’s my best friend.
She tells me the truth.
Our visit was wonderful, just too short. Mom and Dad loved having
her around. She made us laugh and filled our tummies with some

for her smiling face.

Deer hunting is a big part of my family’s life. (sorry if this is offensive to you)
The men hunt, the women cook from recipes handed down thru the ages.
*smothered venison steak, venison chili, venison burgers, roast venison, etc.*
One recipe is TOP SECRET, shared with a select few.
Supposedly, it’s the best venison jerky recipe the world has ever known.
Dad and Danielle decided to stink up the place by concocting a batch.
They were quite proud of their masterpiece!
yes, she did approve these pics…
(We ARE a very exciting family!)
My cousin’s family has beautiful property surrounding a huge ‘pond’ stocked with fish.
We love spending time there watching for deer and eagles, fishing for bass and crappie.
Although the fish weren’t biting that day it was still great to be there.

NOT the big catch of the day
Dani caught a nice bass but it flopped off the boat before I could get a picture!

We love this place and are so grateful for the tranquility it offers.
(Not to mention the yummy fish!)
