Gun Safety Then and Now

I learned gun safety from my father. He loved to hunt quail and took me with him at every opportunity. At age 5 or 6, it was a BIG DEAL to get to go with him and watch the dogs and take quail home for my mother and grandmother to prepare for dinner or breakfast. I have never dined any better.

Family time

I hope your Thanksgiving celebration was special and that you were able to spend some unhurried time with your family.

The icy weather conditions made it a bit challenging but we were happy to have our kids and grandkids home at various times throughout the weekend.

The success of Extension programs depends on the unselfish energy of such people who have spent considerable time supporting our endeavors for no monetary rewards.
