Tree Extravaganza

Well here at the Biggs/Riffe household we have been having a good ol’ fashion tree trimming.  Well…is there such a thing?? I don’t know but here are some pictures for you all to look at and I will tell you that these trees have been here since I moved here when I was 7 which would be 1977. They were all in danger of falling on my grand-fathers home or our home. I can tell you that when the trees hit the ground you could feel the ground move here in the basement of the house.  OOOOOOooo!!

This is Matthew in the blue shirt and Dad in the bibs and dad’s friend Charlie that is attached to a tree. LOL~~ Charlie has been cutting trees for years and still loves the job.

If you would have told me that Matthew got a BASKET rack I would have been confused?? Say what…huh…he doesn’t like baskets?? I am sorta’ confused?? LOL~~well this is his basket rack and when you see it you will realize how wrong I was!!

He caught a 9 point basket rack right here on the property.  Matthew explained that the rack grows up and in and will eventually weave into one another~~ So if your like me and know about 1 fact concerning deer or hunting or their rack then you will consider yourself schooled on your 1st rack fact!! LOL~~~

I will tell you that the biggest baby here on the farm was not one bit impressed with the basket rack because she had to hear the gun shot right up by her brand-spanking-new stall!!

There she is and you can tell that she has that head thrown back with disgust and her ears are scanning the area to make sure she is safe!! So SanDee is hoping not to hear the thunder of the gun anytime soon. She really is the biggest baby here…and I don’t mean in size I mean she really is a baby!!!

Have a great and happy day!!!

DEATH~~2 of a kind~~

Well~~my “GRAN”mother passed away a year ago coming on July the 4th of this year.  I have missed her greatly and I guess so did her favorite tree!! I can remember when papa planted this tree for her and now it has gone on!! So it may be a death of 2 kinds but I view it in the same way.  I will miss that good ol’ tree yet I find it fitting that it has gone on!! Now I look forward to watching my brother and his family replace it with life and watch it grow as I am doing his children.  LIFE—man I am really getting to see it come full circle.  I think that is a sign that I really am in fact getting old…doesn’t matter how much hair dye or make-up I can pile one!!! LOL!!

What are these things for??

I can NOT believe had David Costas is growing.  He is doing so many things on his own and changing by the day.

Just look at that lil’ one grabbing those toes.  He is even trying to talk to me about it in the 3rd pic.  I am sure he is asking me what he should do with these things?? I mean if nothing else they come in handy when he needs something to chew on.  These next 2 picture are for you~~I am making a conscious effort to make sure that I am also in front of the lens!!
