Kill deer Eggs

Filed under: Uncategorized — Rowan @ 7:14 am

I found kill deer eggs on a gravel road when I was jogging with Grandpa and Connor. They were very hard to find. They were in the middle of the road. It wasn’t a busy road. There were five eggs. I probably would have stepped on them if I wasn’t paying attention.KillDeerEggs

Tieing flies

Filed under: Uncategorized — Connor @ 2:55 pm

I tied four flies and the third one came out just like grandpa’s. And I used one of the hooks – the one that doesn’t have a fly on it – for a herring rod. And the others are going to be used for fly fishing. I going to send one down to Idaho to my grandpa to use. I learned to tie flies by watching grandpa.connorflytiehelpconnortyingfirstflyconnorfirstfly

Gopher Story

Filed under: Nature,Travel — Connor @ 7:20 am

We set a gopher trap the night before last night and early yesterday morning I got up, got dressed, and went outside to check the gopher trap. AND we caught a gopher. I looked both ways before I went across the road and then I went and told grandpa that we got a gopher and I asked if I could pull the trap up and he said yes. I said, “I’ll just leave it in the trap until you do something with it.” He said he would come over with me right now. So grandpa took the gopher out of the trap and I saved it until Grams and Rowan got up and saw it. Grams took a picture of it.

It was a pocket gopher. It is called a pocket gopher because it has pockets on the side of its mouth and it gets dirt in its pokcetsgopher and then comes up and shoots it out.

I was riding Inky and Barney yesterday. It was fun. Barney wasn’t bucky except for two times. Next year if they still have Inky and Barney, they will put a saddle and bridle on them and they will give me some training and then I will be on my own.barneyconnorinkyconnor
