The “Mighty Hunters”…and me

Let me tell you how my son’s first deer hunt went. I want to warn you that our guide for the day, fellow blogger John Floyd, and my son William will try to tell you something different. Let me assure you that everything I am about to tell you is entirely accurate. I swear it’s […]

My son’s first hunt

October 1st was a perfect day for a boy’s first hunting trip ever. The sun was out, and it was warm. Intermittent clouds kept it from being too warm. While the start of the day was later than I would have liked, it didn’t really matter. I was going hunting. With my son. And we […]

Seriously…I hate open water fishing!

Fellow blogger and registered Maine Guide, John Floyd often posts pictures of big fish he has caught, and almost as often I comment on how I rarely even DREAM of catching fish that big! Accepting that catching a bass in the four-pound class is just not going to happen for me. Being a great guy, […]

Gooey blob in the middle of the road identified as Stetson man who melted (Humor)

Doug Alley

Stetson authorities called in scientists from around the world to help them identify a large gooey puddle that was found in the middle of the road early Wednesday morning. A local resident was walking along, seeking a “Cleary” that had popped up on his “Pokémon Go” app when he slipped in something in the street. […]

Worried about tick-borne illnesses? Get ticks tested for free!

Many of you know that I am not a big fan of ticks. They have literally prevented me from enjoying outings in the woods. I rarely venture out of my chicken patrolled yard. I hate ticks. I think we should use DDT for a number of years to reduce ticks, and many other insects that […]

The black fly report

Greetings one and all! First, I want to thank you all for participating in ‘Operation Feast On a Fat Guy’ Over 372,000 black flies from the greater Newport area participated, and in the end close to 600,000 were able to take part in the all you can eat buffet when we captured an unprotected man […]

Stetson man missing…Last seen being carried away in a cloud of blackflies.

A 46-year-old Stetson man is missing this morning, after going outside to do some yard work. His wife says he had been outside for just a few minutes, when she heard him muttering, and cursing, followed by a cry of surprise. She stepped out onto the porch, and saw him swatting at a large cloud […]

MUD SEASON…How do I hate thee? Let me count the ways!

Early spring in Maine, is a horrible, HORRIBLE time of year! Even when the sun is out, and it is warm, it is still miserable… Everything is brown and gray. The ground is wet and muddy. There is standing water and mud everywhere. My yard is a swamp!  My chickens are soggy, and my goats need muckers! The […]

Now that spring has sprung…So have my goats…

The days are getting longer, and warmer. My goats have been sticking close to their little barn all winter, and have been content to huddle together and chew their cud. Before I get too far into things, I should point out that I have added two more goats, to the herd of three I had. […]

Ah! The joy of Daylight Savings Time!

Daylight Savings Time… The time of year that we get an extra hour of daylight! I’m not really sure how it is an EXTRA hour…and I don’t know who started this deal in the first place…I suppose I could take a few minutes to look it up, but I’m too tired! My brain INSISTS it […]
