The deer will follow a coyote as he moves along; the magpie will surround a tree with a hawk in it and fly from tree to tree after him when he moves to a new perch. I think it's that same concept--if you can see something dangerous, you can make sure it doesn't get too close. He can't suddenly jump out from a hiding place and grab you.
Keep your friends close and your enemies closer!

Nuff said!

StrykersPerson Alright Frank.

Let's talk cameras. And go easy on me. Don't go all pixel on me. I can barely operate a computer.

I need a beginner camera. Cheap dollars.

And, don't tell me to order one from Amazon. I need to touch one before I purchase.

I don't think there is a camera shop in Guthrie, but I will check. There might be one on the wrong side of the turnpike.

That may be it, mel...when I tried to take pics before, and got too close, they took off on me but once I started talking to them I found I could get so much closer and they relaxed. Like I said, I think it was 2 years ago, a fawn came so close to me I could have reached out and touched it. Its mom was standing there, looking at me, then looking at it, and I stood perfectly still, talking to the fawn and it kept getting closer and closer, sniffing the air, trying to figure out what the heck I was. Made my day

TNfisher A few pics from the hike this morning


Go ahead and laugh but, I discovered about 3 years ago that if I start talking to the deer, they relax and I can get pretty close, and sometimes the younger ones will come up to me (I had a fawn come to less than 5 feet from me once). It's mainly the younger ones (curiosity?) but it works on some of the does as well. I'm not sure if the sound of my voice gives them something else to focus on and they forget there's a human close to them or what but it works, and when you're trying to get closeup pics like this, you take and use whatever you can The last 2 pics here, I was about 15 feet away from that deer and it just laid there and listened to me talk

Looks like once the family sets their mind to it they do their best to accomplish. Good trait...wish I had more of it! Maybe would settle on a hobby
Of all the things listed - I did martial arts the best....when I was younger. Many tournaments that I did ok at. Also helped the instructor. I think some of that training attributed to portions of my neck/back problems But was fun at the time.

SP mentioned her dad did Intarsia - When I looked at some videos - reminded me of stained glass. Which I also tried my hand at.


Reminds me of another story - Wife signed up for stained glass lessons. Turned out the place was just down the street from us. The Saturday came and I was on the computer early wife had left to go up the hill for the lesson. I got a call saying she was the only one there would I like to come up. So I got dressed and walked up to the house. Turns out the lady who was instructing went to the same high school I did in New York a few years ahead of me so I did not know her at the time. Plus it was a big school. Some how both of us ended up in same town in SC. Very small world at times.

Thks Mo for the kind words...I thought it neat, Andrew was interested in half your list of achievements...one time or another.

And KEN, you got Larry laughing.
- we were walking back to my '84 GMC truck, when the fight broke out
- son told fat kid to F-off, your not stealing my 1st base
- a quick Karate block, of the punch and a few seconds later...
- Andrew's foot came up so dame fast...dad could not even block it
- son was trained to kick & punch, straight through target...several inches
- fat bullies side of head went back sideways / in a split second & fight was over
- all the kid needed was a cup cake after he woke up and waddled his arse back to the coaches corner

-------------------------------------

#1 KSF..mastering "thinking outside the Box", at work and in play !!

Yep, Beau had fun remembering the karate stories and Andrew was so driven in competition // Dad always solved his growing up problems &/or personal development, via answering one simple question..."what can I do, to build up his young confidence", which as an adult, he has an abundance of.

Few more of BabyBear accomplishments...
- scouted via Atlanta Braves & Detroit Tigers recommending Scouts, as the top Canadian pitcher at 12 y/o // pitched 4 innings at Triple A tournament in Toronto & recorded 8 strike outs (he pitched hard, and had a natural fastball that would rise 4" in strike zone
- sons batting average @ 14, was 0.542 and on base percent was between 0.750 - 0.800.
- bad rotate'r cuff injury, left the game

Billiards qualified Top32 in Junior World 9 ball championships, won trip to Osaka Japan...and Dad went to.
- won the North American World Speed Pool Junior championships, potting 15 balls in 56 seconds (in the finals) // he also run an 8 ball rack off Adult World Champ
- also won the North American Junior Artistic "trick shot" Pool championships, in Tulsa, OK


Back to Martial Arts protection - Andrew was a skilled Brown Belt, at 12 years old...one under Black belt.
- he use to air round house kick dad in the living room, walking through
- Beau would give his s*it, saying one day your gonna miss...but he never did, and always managed to create enough wind, on the side of my head, to mess up the hair over my ear
- he meet the original bully 4 years later, while Andrew walked home with an expensive Saxophone...2 on 1, son said..."frig, another fight to finish"
- they wanted to see and hold the brass music instrument...and one knows, they would drop it on the pavement, nose first
- so grade7 or 8 Andrew, bent down with confidence...in front of their feet
- there you see it // but they wanted to hold it LOL
- NOPE, Andrew locked the case up, at their feet // got up, turned his back on the 2 and walked straight home
- he owned the much older BULLY, after solid training in Martial Arts
- Andrew had power, speed and control
- and SMRT Dad, built a young lads confidence / and the whole process, helped my own brain injury survivor (70 mph car meets my Ski-Doo collision injury) ...the analytical part, was important (to expand my way of thinking)
- killing 2 birds, with one stone

-----------

Mrs67 I know would like "Stain Glass"...could be a good hobby to take up plus get back to sewing...thks for sharing good story Mo

Toast does take skill as well...particularly if it is French Toast Hmm now I have to make some! I do like French Toast - butter and maple syrup.

I definitely get the no extra work for supper. I figure if I want something different than what is prepared for me....then I should help do it.

We sometimes have Dirty Risotto. Recipe courtesy of Giada De Laurentiis. It has mushrooms in it that are coarsely chopped. I help chop them finer and with the spicy sausage I do not mind them in there - and I would go as far as say I do not really taste them....or I do and ok with it

https://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/...recipe-1915893

5 cups reduced-sodium chicken broth
2 tablespoons butter
2 ounces pancetta, chopped
1 link (about 6 ounces) spicy Italian sausage, casing removed
3/4 cup finely chopped onion
1 cup chopped red bell pepper
4 ounces button mushrooms, coarsely chopped
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1 1/2 cups Arborio rice or medium-grain white rice
3/4 cup dry white wine
1/2 cup freshly grated Parmesan
1 tablespoon chopped fresh Italian parsley leaves

When we go to friends house I usually try the food unless I absolutely know I will not like it.

We took Mila over to friends this last Friday - She was very good. The friends were here a few weeks ago and invited all of us over. They had a dober as well who they lost in March. They had a statue of a life size dober in the corner. When Mila saw it she gave it a few barks. But then left it alone for the rest of the night.

Back to the food - they had spinach spanakopita as part of the appetizers. I do not liked cooked spinach. In salad it is awesome. Nice spinach, walnut, strawberry and feta cheese salad is great. But I tried it again....was not a fan. The dinner consisted of a salad, wild rice dish, and lamb chops. Was very tasty!

I know folks go through a lot of work to make a dinner for guests - so I try a taste at least.

Last bit about food - When my wife and I were dating she had bought shrimp an prepared it for dinner. As mentioned I am not a seafood fan. But had to "man-up" since new relationship. I ate the shrimp until I was almost sick....but made it through

Here are a few things from the PapaBear family, done over the many years.

Guitar / Wish I had learned to play drums.

Oil Painting / Drawing - went to College with a kid that painted and he had his parents supplies / so Larry painted a barn sense, now to make a black walnut frame for my one and only 1974 art piece.

Sewing - GF (Mrs67) made her grade12 prom dress...she could sew.
- now if she could make me some seat covers for a truck or 2

Fencing - Nope

Bread Baking & Cooking - wife Nancy is a natural, learned from mother ...cooks & bakes like a trained chef.

Reading - Nancy is a master in reading, English & Latin. She can sit down and polish off 100 pages / while Larry is a poor reader, and enjoys learning and research instead via short text reading.

Photography - Larry enjoyed photo taking, on my cell phone now. Haven't used my 35 mm digital, in several years.

Online gaming - Andrew @ 17 was playing 4-8 tables @ a time, ranked semi pro. Games changed via USA Govn. over money laundering etc. and games setup to take out the pros...so play was retired

Martial arts - young 9 year old Andrew was bullied by a kid 4 years older that failed 2 grades. So dad said, "you dedicate yourself to karate, I will pay for it.
- soon he was doubling up on his classes and assisted the 4th degree sensei (wife of head school founder), teaching the junior class
- he would bring home all the 1st place trophy's in 3 forms of combat
- dad witnessed a baseball kid arguing with son over him playing 1st base and kid said he was taking the preferred position next game, because his father was the coach / even though Andrew was put on 1st because he was left handed
- kid threw a punch at 10 year old Andrew, while he blocked it and planted a solid round-house kick, across his left ear...and the fat kid, dropped to the ground like a rock in water /// no one ever messed with Andrew in school, for more than 20 seconds
- we drove home from the ball practice, laughing it up...all the way home
Master Sensei honored, in local news:
https://www.stthomastimesjournal.com...gwEnLr0S5GO6PE

Chess - 14 y/o son was checkmated quick, by a chess master in 10 [email protected] pool hall.
- so he asked mom to but him a computer chess game & studied the game several hours per day, next 10 days straight
- he finally beat the computer, entry level master level
- next day he challenged the chess master for a rematch & after 3.5 straight hours, Andrew had checkmated this master
- that was the last chess game, Andrew ever played / the challenge had been conquered
Great stories 6-7 ! Love the one : fat kid drops like a rock best I also did painting when I was younger - matter of fact still do !

I was out checking for eggs and he violated one of the hens right in front of me

Congrats on the eggs!
Doc sees and opportunity and takes it! Regardless of whom is there to witness...e-gads!
Thinking you should have fried chicken for dinner real soon!
Or teach those girls how to work as a pecking team.
Something has got to be done right away though......

I bet it is a great feeling to get your first eggs. Now you get to look forward to getting your own eggs you can put into many dishes!

One other thing I meant to reply about - Someone mentioned smell in relation to taste and food - Mel maybe
I think this is true - many of the foods I do not like I really do not even like the smell of them.
Examples - Mushrooms, do not like them much and do not like the smell of them cooking. Same with seafood and many cooked vegetables.
Flipside examples - I like blue cheese but it has a strong smell. I also like tuna fish for sandwiches.

Other part of food for me is texture - stewed or whole cooked tomatoes do not like. But puree (baby food if you must ) such as used in sauces I do like....strange I know.
Yes, that is strange to me. But, it's your thing. I have had people tell me that they like onions but don't like the texture. Go figure!

In this household, I refuse to go through even more work to puree food for the offended party (Mister). I've already cleaned the kitchen, sliced and diced and cooked! It irritates me when he picks stuff out. But, what am I to do?
