Been a good week. Took it off, to get some work done around the house. Got most of the garden put in, cut down a lot of trees. Funny how trees grow great where you don't want them, but won't grow at all where you do. Had kind of a combined birthday celebration today, with smoked buffalo roast, smoked beef ribs, homemade bread, and a fresh homemade cherry pie. Little brandy and a fine cigar afterward, and life is good. Had a nice visit with my sons, and one of them told me some things I thought I would never hear from him. Good things, and I feel better as a father for them.
