    My Dad had an eye surgery and could not work and mom had to take care of him and us 5 kids. That is why we had to spend the summer on the lake. It was not so bad, we caught loads of frogs and had frog races and got to walk to a store most days with a nickle to get a sucker. Plus if we got an Indian head on the paper we could get a free sucker the next time! [​IMG]

    Chicanoe - next time you hug your friend, hold on another few seconds for me. I wish (there I go again) I could give it to him in person.

    Well, I was looking out the bathroom window this morning and saw a rounded something on the front lawn that resembled an egg. Got busy and didn't think too much about it until later in the day when I looked out the window again and it seemed somewhat puffier. Uh-oh. Was it a mushroom about to release its spores? Well, no, because that patch of lawn was kind of dry and sickly. DH and I went out to investigate. It was a cottontail....just the tail all round and fluffy on the lawn. (Remember the movie "Blue Velvet"? "I was walking along and found an ear....") Anyway, looks like the coyotes are back! [​IMG] And hopefully they'll keep returning now that they know they can find a rabbit dinner. Honestly, the rabbit population is getting ridiculous...they don't even try to hide anymore. They just hunker down on the lawn and hope you don't notice them. Daily I'm collapsing new tunnels in VeggieLand.

    I sent DH out to do cleanup detail. He has been happily telling everyone within earshot about how he bagged some tail this afternoon.... (!!) Sigh.....

    It's been a long time since I've cooked a deer's rump..roast. With the very same veggies you mentioned. I used to hunt those big ol mule deer out here. Can't do that anymore. Hiking..up big hills. Not good. That crock pot right there sure looks good though.
