Well, THAT Didn't Go As I Had Planned!

Levi and I joined Mr. Adams on the last hunt of the Spring season and I had planned to blog from the boat, but the service there was SO terrible that I just couldn't pull it off. Sorry it seemed like I just fell off the face of the earth, but I was so busy getting the garden ready before we left that I just didn't have time to blog....

I plan to open the U-pick Garden on Monday, June 17th, so now that I'm home I better get moving fast! There is a lot to do to get ready for business.

And last but not least, I have exciting news..... Levi got the chance to hunt this time, and was fortunate to bag a beautiful black bear!

 Yes, Levi, you really are "SPECIAL"!


  1. Ha! he really is special! He looks pretty pleased.

  2. Sure is good to see your post again - now I can start my day properly! Have a good season in the garden.

  3. Congratulations again, Levi! Another accomplishment! :) Evonne

  4. Way to go Levi!! And absolutely! He is VERY special!! Blessings! Lisa
