Christmas pic

I think this personifies Christmas at the Snagley Grandparents Farm house.
Bo and Son#1 playing Checkers.
I won.
He almost beat me at chess latter that day.
Yes he did get those overalls for Christmas and the checkers.
No the wood heater I am leaning against is not burning.
and yes I am devastatingly handsome

Chicken beak

I have not mentioned the chickens lately so I thought i would post a picture i took on Christmas. The one on the right whos back you see is named Tummy Ache, the one in the middle is named Aunt June, the one on the far left is named Speedy.

My boys turtle died. the vet said it was extremly old and most likely died of old age. My son was not in the best of spirits about the loss of his turtle.

In other animal related news, We have a forth cat that has showed up. it is a huge white cat that we are calling Biscuit Brain, (Biscuit for short). He or She refuses to allow us any closer that 10 feet.
My Father turns 87 this weekend.

I have been asked to join a hunting club.

For those of you who do not know a hunting club is a group of people who go together to lease land from a landowner for the purpose of hunting. There is no secret handshake or signet rings. Usually it takes several people to afford to lease the land. This plot of land is 300 acres. It has several ponds and lots of woods, turkeys, ducks, deer, and coyotes, plus fish in the off-season. Its only 200 per year plus some change for seed for off-season food plots. The other members are friends of mine so I think it would be a good deal.

My friend ,Woormwood, took me as a guest the other day and we had a good time. We sat in the rain and looked for deer. As is my custom I did not see any.

I am known for having a magnetic aura surrounding me that causes wildlife to head for the next county by my mere presence. I once caused a catfish to migrate into a swimming pool simply by picking up a fishing rod. However the day after I have been hunting or fishing, I get a report that the fishing or hunting was fantastic, best ever etc.
As I have estimated, Woormwoods goal was to invite me hunting have my aura shut down the deer, then have his kids come in the next day and shoot a deer.
This is not the first time this has happened to me. I once had a charter boat captain invite me for a free fishing trip the week before a fishing tournament, we were skunked that day but the next week he won the tournament.

On another note I was able to purchase the Remington 700sps I got some leupold scope mounts and a Bushnell 4200 scope. I even got a box of .308 Winchester.
Merry Christmas

Snagley Acres

Ok this is home.
The old barn is falling down. If i had the money i would rent a dump truck and haul it away.
this picture is old it does not include the hen house or chicken coop.
I cleared the fence row just after we moved in. and also the thickett just sse of the old barn. My garden is much larger that the one in the picture. I want to fence the place in again and add a new barn and some cows but as it seems i am poor it may take a while. If anyone wants to contribute to the build Snag a barn fund let me know.

Older kitchen pic

This is the kitchen from the afore blogged picture. I live in the house my parents lived in. They live in an apartment beside the house. Needless to say it is an old house.
This picture has my grandmother at far left my great aunt at center and my mom at right.
this is Christmas a long time ago.
My grandmother is preparing a ham. I remember she had this pan that was too small so every year my dad would cut the ham in half with a meat saw.
My Aunt is cooking home made rolls. My mom is reveling in having her two hero's in her kitchen for Christmas. I am still in bed. I am about 4 or 5 at the time of this picture.
What do you think of those house coats that someone made for them as Christmas presents.
I wish I was a kid again just for a day. I would most likely choose this day and sit and talk with my Grandmother, She lived in the apartment that my parents live in now.I miss those days when I knew nothing of the pain and trials of life. I wish I could just wake up to a big hug and a kiss and be sent outdoors for the day my biggest worry of the day would be trying to wear out the day.

in other news. My dad had a CAT scan and they have found no cancer after his surgery.

In yet other news. My 5 year old daughter had the flu. Yes, can you believe it the freaking flu.
If my 3 week old gets it he will be immediately admitted to the hospital.
It is always something. I am praying that the baby wont get the flu and have to be hospitalized. The doc said it is a bad thing or babies to have the flu.

In yet more news. I have had some unforeseen expenses come up and will not be able to buy the rifle I had been saving for, oh well I reckon if something needs shooting, I will do it with the old 30 30 for a while anyway.

A rare look into the Snagleys home

This is a photo of the youngest Snagley getting a bath.
He is in the kitchen sink. That's number 2 and 3 watching. Number one is on the other side.
Yes I know all about the counter tops. I am planning on replacing them sometime after I win the lottery, and have all four out of college. They are only 62 years old and i can get a few more years out of them yet.

In other news. I have placed an order for a Remington 700 in .308 for me and the boys. I already have a marlin 30 30 I want something that is a little flatter shooting with moderate recoil.

I plan on getting the rifle soon then starting to save for the scope mounts and scope. Recommendations are welcome.

1. I have not bought music in over 15 years
