lately, at the end of the day, after school, gets my daughter Iri busey on her "dog mushing" class.
Having discussed this since last year, we have been on the look out for pups with potential, and haveing gone through about a dozen, we have kept three so far as "GOOD!"
Soooooo, besides having the girl run our Icenets with us, she has been setting a snare line in the last few days as the dog food is about 1/2 gone.
Keeping those dogs fed is as important as feeding your family, so if thats what she wants , thats what shes gettin'.
I make her take her .22 every time, as well, and she called me (on her cell phone) just after she missed the Blackest Fox she had ever seen....( Fox trap lesson, next!) seems he was a following her , and she made a snap shot and placed it right between the fox's feet, under the belly, and she saw where the hit , walked over, and was certain that there was no blood trail.... a bit low, but heck, she s learning.
Anyhoo......... the gist of the cell call was that she now must have a semi auto !! ~~!!LOL!!~~
Soooooo, me and the guys worked up a frame for the wife to strech Seals skins on, and the younger son has left a couple to do such with.
Soon, it'l join the others and become a canvas....just have to spend some time in the deep cold now to whiten the skin side , now that every drop of oily grease has been removed. these will make excellent canvass's for the wife to draw on with India Ink.
Working on skins, outboards, equipment in general sure beats waving a fist at the Internet ~~LOL!!~~
