So I went to trim some shooting lanes at my deer stand and a 10pt buck and a doe walked up on me and stood watching for a few minutes until they winded me. It was a nice 10pt too, when he ran away it was like watching a bush running because he took so many leaves off the low trees.

Yesterday I got the deck sanded down and the new spindles put up. Today I'm staining the deck, staining our fence, and the neighbors fence. Then getting a big piece of poster board and making a stencil of our bay window dormer to get a blind made for it. Then I'm going to fill in the holes under the deck my dog has dug.

Tomorrow I'm going to go see if I can get this 10pt buck before I have to take DW to dialysis. That would make my week. One of the guys I work with got a button buck yesterday in Kansas, which counts as a doe.

When I was working on our deck yesterday the neighbors kids came over to help DW make some brownies. They are for our other neighbor, cause we have to take their plate back they gave us apple cake on, so we made brownies in return. Anyway, DW made just enough to give away, not expecting the kids. So today the kids are coming over again and DW is making brownies for them. She makes it all from scratch, none of the mix in a box stuff.

And finally, DW and I aren't a match at all for a kidney transplant. Mayo said she would have to do treatments every other day for 3 months there and even then it wouldn't be for sure. So we need to find a B blood type, or an O without kids. Good times. But we are on the paired kidney exchange at Mayo, and working to get on Barnes Jewish in St. Louis. DW has about 14 months on the list in Kansas City, and you can move your time on the list around, so we're moving her 14 months to Mayo and restarting her time on the list in Kansas City. Good times. We have to go up to Mayo sometime, find out today, in order to get DW on the active list for up there.

That's about it. Off to feed the dog and get started on my list for the day.

    I'm sorry you aren't a match with one another. I hope she gets the kidney she needs soon.

    I'm glad that you are still out and about with all the other stuff that is going on! That sounds like a nice buck, and I hope he sticks around for you. That would lead to a nice little bonus in the freezer!
    Sorry that you didn't match up on the kidney, but hang in there. You are fortunate to have the support of your unit and some good (albeit sometimes frustrating) health insurance through the military. All the best...
