Back from the moose hunt!

Back from the great wilderness.  My friend was successful in getting his moose.  It is quite impressive how,  a hunter can call out such a huge animal from the edge of the woods.  It is quite like what you see on television,  or on U tube.  And then,  one shot,  and it is all over.  A good 7 mm rifle does the trick,  and it is a beautiful rifle for to use in the woods.

The only think I can say,  is gutting the moose as fast as you can is,  as you probably are already aware of is important.  Letting the heat escape,  is a good thing.  Some people leave it hang in a cool place for 3 days or so. The group I was with,  decided to cut it up and put it in large freezers.  This was something new for me,  but skinning a moose was done before.  I found the skinning part went a little better for myself.

The warm weather of the moose hunt,  made it for us to guess if the hunt was any good.  Sometimes,  if it is too warm,  the moose may not be in the mood to move.  The second day of the hunt,  our hunter got our moose.  1000 lb or less, total,  and when cut, 620 approx lbs of meat.  It is nice to be out in the woods,  and even  nicer to meet other hunters.  I must say,  that in the end,  being a part of the hunt is great when you have success,  but even if we were not successful I would have enjoyed the time anyways.

As far as my book goes,  I got maybe another 10 friends on goodreads..  Thanks Goodreads!

My Dog has ate a Ferrero Rocher.

I had only went into a store to buy a few Ferrero Rocher packages of chocolates... Then, I went into the next store, not realizing that I left the small, 3 chocolates per package, delicious Rochers in my middle vehicle organizer. On the way back, I did not even notice.

I had got out of my vehicle, and only when I went to search for something on that side, it all came together. The package was torn, with only one individually wrapped Ferro Rocher out of its packaging. She had selected one, and even tore the golden foil paper from the once existing Rocher Chocolate.

I looked over at my Dog. This was a little too much for me to handle. I yelled "Pushkin! You ate one of my Ferrero Rocher!"  Is she the only dog in the world that probably ate a Ferrero Rocher.

Good point in standing, she actually thought the process through. She did not destroy the three chocolates in the package, all in one bite. She used her incisors, exactly as a surgeon would, to take apart the package from t…

The Self Publishing 12 days of Christmas for 95 % of us...

What does Christmas mean for the majority of us self published authors. I think of the 12 days of self publishing... Scrooge approved.

1. The usual "Gesh, I didn't know you wrote a book! Where did you find time for that" from festive long lost friends or relatives.

2. When your manly friends tell you "Oh, I did'nt have time to read your books, but my wife read it and she sure likes it... But she likes just about anything she reads"

3. Where can I get a copy of that. I don't got a credit card so I can't order it online... Do you got any free copies...

4. The wife tells you "Why are you spending so much time on that thing. You got wood to split!"

5. Your son tells you "You should have put more pictures in that novel, dad. Maybe then I would have read it"

6. Your local library tells you "Oh, what a cute little book... We will put it way up there on the top shelf where it will keep the dust from falling on the traditional books"
