Tomorrow, November 11, is the traditional day set aside to salute our Veterans. A tip of the hat and a sincere thanks to all of you that served and are serving is in order. None of us would be enjoying the freedoms we have without your service.
Even though tomorrow is actually Veteran’s Day, the post office is closed today. As a result, I had hoped we might see some more of the GEC Bull Moose arrive but it’s not gonna happen today! It took a while for them to take off but once people had them in hand a couple of folks came back for seconds. Nice pattern! I was also hoping the first of the Trestle Pine Gunflints would be coming in this week, but no such luck. On top of that, the Froglube liquid didn’t make it this week either!!!!
I’ll mention it again as the date gets closer that there is a gun show at the Moorhead, Minnesota National Guard Armory the Friday afternoon and Saturday following Thanksgiving. This condensed time show has really proven popular for both exhibitors and attendees. It goes from 4-8PM Friday afternoon and runs from 9-5 on Saturday. There’s quite a bit of room to move around and the quality/mixture of knives and gun stuff covers a broad spectrum. I’ll be there with three tables of assorted ‘stuff’.
The only other ‘news’ is we’ve officially iced in for the winter. The lake we live on is one of the last to freeze over in our area and last nite it became official. Wouldn’t recommend going ice fishing yet but with the way the weather has been I’m betting people will be on the ice Thanksgiving weekend.
I’ve been filling the feeders and this morning had Blue Jays, Cardinals, Nuthatches, Chickadees, the assorted Finch and a Pileated Woodpecker drop in. The poor squirrels hardly had a chance.
