Another beautiful autumn day here, apart from walking the dog I have five knives to sharpen, freebies this time. smile
My step daughter has a catering business so I get all of hers to do.
Typical for all in the trade, you never get them until the edges are fairly non existant. grin
Have a great day everyone.

Winter here is a little chilly for hanging a hammock for all but the most dedicated.

Summer runs in the low to mid 70's and mid 40's at night for the most part. That's perfect for hanging a hammock. Once in a while, it will get up into the 80's but it would have to be a scorcher in the low country for it to get that high here.

Winter is the preferable time to camp and hunt. There are many who head off to camp all year round, the dedicated ones, that is. grin

Mid 70's and mid 40's at night is beautiful weather for camping.

Out summers are a SOB when it gets really hot.

As a youngster, I'd consider laying around the house some sort of cruel punishment ...prison! I loved being outside even if it meant working with/for my father and uncles... but they did some neat $hit, time to time.

I was rarely inside long enough to just lay around. I was outside if I could be. That doesn't mean I wasn't taking a nap in a field or propped up against a tree.

As soon as I woke up I was out and rarely came back until night unless I had chores or my parents required my presence.

Neither was I, I meant Owen guns laying around. grin

In fact I was kept and lived at my grandparents from the age of five, as my mother spent most of her time looking for me after I had cleared out. laugh

Ian- Got it, my blunder... smile

But it did stir a bit of discussion.

Till I hit somewhere around 50, I had a majority of my nights outside- had several caches placed around for the few necessaries I did not want to carry. Had an old barn that was my favorite for winter (rainy) nights that had a tin roof. Grand music it was. Then I met and Married Rose. She prefers I sleep inside, but allows as how it is OK to return to my "roots" when I need it... smile smile

How about you?

Well, I've got the swag packed in the back of my truck, taking my Trapper 30-30 and some of my taylor made ammo (lead projectiles)and two packets of hornady leverevolutions to try out, the mountains are going to be cold at this time of the year, but I'll be tucked in my swag on the back of my truck.

With the cover over me, counting sheep. laugh

I'll leave you all with an Aussie bush poem!


Drover's Dream

One night when travelling sheep,
my companions lay asleep,
There was not a star to illuminate the sky,
I was dreaming, I suppose,
for my eyes were nearly closed,
When a very strange procession passed me by...

First there came a kangaroo,
with his swag of blankets blue,
A dingo ran beside him for a mate,
They were travelling mighty fast,
and they shouted as they passed,
"We'll have to jog along, it's getting late".

The pelican and the crane,
they came in from off the plain,
To amuse the company with a Highland Fling,
The dear old bandicoot,
played a tune upon his flute,
And the native bears sat round them in a ring.

The drongo and the crow,
sang us songs of long ago,
While the frill-necked lizard listened with a smile.
And the emu standing near,
with his claw up to his ear
Said, "Funniest thing I've heard for quite a while".

The frogs from out the swamp,
where the atmosphere is damp,
Came bounding in and sat upon the stones,
They each unrolled their swags,
and produced from out their bags,
The violin, the banjo and the bones.

The goanna and the snake,
and the adder wide awake,
With the alligator danced "The Soldier's Joy",
In the spreading silky oak,
the jackass cracked a joke,
And the magpie sang "The Wild Colonial Boy".

Some brolgas darted out,
from the tea-tree all about,
And performed a set of Lancers very well.
Then the parrot green and blue,
gave the orchestra its cue
To strike up "The Old Log Cabin in the Dell."

I was dreaming, I suppose,
of these entertaining shows,
But it never crossed my mind I was asleep,
Till the Boss beneath the cart,
woke me up with such a start,
Yelling, "Dreamy, where the hell are all the bloody sheep?" grin
