October Winter

 You can see we are all over the snow stakes!

 Sitting on the deck temporarily suspended!

Friday Bacon!

Once again, after long repast, I bring you, LAME FRIDAY BACON!

THE BACON CANDLE - Further proof that everything is better with bacon, including your stinky bathroom.
Now you can turn your love of bacon into a full-blown problem with the new BACON CANDLE.  Burn it with a coffee flavored candle and a french toast flavored candle and you'll have a laser awesome schnoz breakfast.
THE BACON CANDLE is hand made in the USA (take that China!) and comes in a 6oz. glass which can be recycled for whatever you have that needs decanting.

Mainville Pheasants

Although it took Shellelagh a few mintues to get warmed up, the short jaunt through Mainville's gamelands proved productive.

Two flushes and two clouds of feathers.

Minions in attendance, Bear (he drives Shellelagh around), Stew and Coach.

Well done!
