Deer Hunting

 November is noted for opening day of deer hunting season, in several States including Kentucky.

2014 marks the 40th year of deer hunting for my family.... Dad  and our neighbor Charlie Roberts started the event in the Seventy's.

Each year the second Saturday of November we gather at the Home place in Kentucky, to carry on their legacy.

Dad and Charlie have passed on now.

With their passing the family was faced with a choice; to keep the hunting going, or to let it go, I am proud to say we kept it going.

The annual event now includes grandchildren, brother-in-law's Uncles neighbors friends and many others.

Our family simply loves this event, it has become special in many ways.

Getting a deer, during the hunt, is secondary to the deer hunters .

One of my favorite things about this get together, is the dinner our sisters prepare for us, on Sunday after the hunting is over.

They invite neighbors and friends to join us . 

  And we Celebrate  deer hunting, thanksgiving and Christmas,  together, "One grand celebration " that covers each event .

What started out with two people, has grown to  super portions now .

 The blessings just seem to keep coming , Dad and Charlie we send our heart felt thanks to the both of you, for what you did to get this event going.

And a big thank you to all the faithful ones in our family who attend each year to keep it going.

I reckon that's what family's are for though, to help each other, and do things together and have fun doing it (Aye).

Speaking of family's I appreciate each of you my extended Facebook family, for taking time out of your busy day each week, to read "My Mediation" you're the greatest !!

I am truly blessed to have you as family.

Until next time, God Bless.
