Deer season is a biggie in Alabama*
When the first boy is born into a family of women, well it's a learning curve. Last year I followed Davis and his pals to the fabulous Barber Motorsports Museum. A first for me. Well this year, we were off to unchartered territory once again. I followed five hyped- to- the- max six year olds to of all places........the Bass Pro Shop in Leeds. Good heavens I wasn't prepared for all that. How can I explain it? A grand cathedral housing everything ever invented pertaining to hunting, fishing, ( and cooking it too), camping, and boating , plus all the toys that go with all of that? Oh and throw in every imaginable piece of clothing/accessories that might pertain to the aforementioned activities. In addition, a corps of taxidermists must have spent their entire careers stuffing every species of wildlife found in Alabama to be displayed in their semi -natural habitats! Melissa and I wandered around with our mouths wide open. Good thing Davis's Poppa was along to lead the gang through the place. She and I were pretty useless. A good day was had by all. Davis got his first fishing pole and all the kiddos got a cap. Life is good at the Bass Pro Shop.
I have more photos . Just wait.
* Before anyone gets all distressed about deer hunting, even I know that the deer population is out of control here as it is in many parts of the country. The deer season doesn't begin to control it. End of discussion.
