When I was a kid my grandma would make oyster stew on xmas.

Even as a 5 yr old I loved it.

Then it was my dads turn to make it for yrs.

Well now its my turn. Made it Saturday.

But the only people that eat it is my 14 yr old granddaughter and me.

Oh well, lots of leftover stew.

Brad


WISH I HAD MORE TIME TO TRAP!

As a kid my family would all gather at Gramma Space's house for Christmas dinner. After dinner all the men and boys would go grouse hunting, coming back by 4 PM so Dad and I could milk the cows. Gramma Space died on my birthday in 1997, but the grouse disappeared 15 years before that when the wild turkeys that had been introduced in the late 1970's ate the chicks. Dad hunted with an Easter Arms double barrel 410. Many times he got his limit of 4 grouse with 4 shots. I used an Ithaca model 37 12 gauge pump, would load myself down with pockets full of shells and occasionally (probably by accident) hit a bird.

Catch if you used the entire roll it would probably take at least 30 minutes to unwrap laugh

Eating christmas dinner and listening to my oldest brothers bigfoot stories . He swears bigfoot is real and that UFO's are message ships from God. This years story is that the government funds major league sports so that the men are watching football instead of paying attention to what the government is doing behind our back.

Bubble lights, now those were really cool. I hadn't thought about those for years.
