Buzzard Luck Continues


It seems there is no end to our buzzard luck.  Joe got the tractor running again Thursday.  Friday morning it rained, so we couldn’t get anything done, that’s not a complaint by the way, the rain is a blessing.  Friday afternoon it cleared off, and Tracy was able to get most of Mama’s grass cut.  When he tried to crank the tractor today to finish the grass cutting, it was acting up again.

The Garden

Last year the Briary River crew decided to grow a summer garden, the main staple of which was beans and corn.  This year we decided to start early with a winter garden then a summer garden.  We have some idea of what we are doing since we all grew up working in our parents gardens but we are also trying to branch out and try new things.

Buzzard Luck


It seems that we here at Briary River have Buzzard Luck.  We can’t kill nuthin’, and ain’t nuthin’ dyin’.  We decided a while back that we were going to try to grow some corn to feed the deer this fall.  About a month back Tracy and I turned the field and got it ready to plant.

BO and his phesant.

Today all the guys at Briary River went on our 2nd Annual Upland Bird hunt at Spring Grove Preserve.  It was Bo’s first trip with us and we had a ball.  It was a chore to get the weather to cooperate with us today, but in the end, it was a great day.
