I'm back!

Well I finally came home yesterday. It was a good vacation. But it was also a long vacation. I couldn't wait to get back home. My dad and I hunted deer from Sun. morning till Fri. morning. We saw 1 buck the whole trip on the first hunt day. It just finished snowing on the mountain next to us so I was taking pictures of the first snow. We drove 50 yards and there was a forked horn buck standing 40 feet from the truck. By the time I recognized it as a legal deer he jumped over the brush to never be seen again. We did see on average 15 does a day. Most of them we could set our watches by them. They were in the same place at the same time every day. It was cold on the mountain we were hunting for the first few days. We were waking up and it was 36 degrees in the tent. By Tue. it was warming up to being 42 when we woke up. We went into town on Tue. to take showers. It cost $5.00 for the shower but it was the best 5 bucks I ever spent.
On Fri. we drove over to Tule Lake for the opener of goose season. The first goose hunt of the season was simply amazing. My dad got a bird with the first shot of the season. That's the first time I've ever seen him do that. He got a Speckle Belly. He also got the next bird a Canada goose. That thing was HUGE! So he limited out on dark geese in 1 hour. While me I missed on my first 3 shots of the day. Finally I got my bird. I shot my first Canadian Honker. I've waited my whole life to get one of those birds. That one bird will feed my family at least 2 meals. Plus my dad gave me his birds too. That was it for the day. We left with 2 birds. We passed on a lot of ducks but I didn't travel 380 miles for ducks. I can shoot ducks all season long here on the delta. But we don't get many Honkers here. Sun. we only hunted for 1.5 hours and we packed up. We had been gone for along time and had a 7 hour drive to get home.
The trip was great as I've already said. The only part that I wasn't to crazy about was listening to counrty music the whole time. But now as I'm typing I've got the radio on to country music and my wife isn't even home. Some of the songs are really good at explaining things I want to say. Others are good at explaining my wifes point of view. There was even one song that made me get to the point where I was ready to cry. Don't know who sings it but it is about a girl who has cancer and loses her hair before prom and her date shaved his head. It's called some thing like 'Sabath is scared today' or something like that. If I can find the video's to some of them I might post them on the site. Not sure yet though.
So I got to my house at 6 last night. My wife had dinner ready when I got home. God I love that woman. I unpacked after dinner showed the kids the pictures I took while on the trip and went to bed about 10:30. Of course we didn't get to sleep till after 1 in the morning. We had the most amazing session of making love that we have had in a long time. The best thing was that even after not touching each other in 9 days we went real slow. When we finally released I couldn't tell you when I came that hard before. Except possibly when I came home from Basic Training.
This morning she let me sleep till 9, and when I woke up she had gone to the store and bought some donughts for breakfast and gave me a glass of OJ. She is even asking me to stay home from work tomorrow. So I think that I feel a case of the flu coming on. *cough cough*. Other than that nothing much is happening. It's good to be home. Just wish the kids would stop yelling at each other.
My wife said she didn't really miss me to much. She says she even sleeps better without me. I guess it is a lot quieter without me snoring. Although I don't think I could be worse than my dad. WOW! In a tent thats just to much. I don't know how my mom does it. Well whether she missed me or not if she wants me home tommorow I won't let her down. She wants me home 2 days in a row. It's amazing.
