I know today is the day I share some more of my dad’s story…but I need to find/work on some photos. Today’s story is going to be about hunting, which I grew up around. And there are some stories…but, hopefully later today I will have something to share.

“Backwards spelled forward
is backwards.”
~ Buster Guru

yep, you read that right…

“You are not crazy
if you talk to yourself
or if you answer yourself.
You are only crazy
if you interrupt your own conversation.”

During my senior year in high school, my dad came home from work and handed me a piece of paper:

Employment Oppotrunity
Call XXX-XXXX
Ask for Miss Lyon

So, I call the number…a man answered “Catoctin Mountain Zoo, so and so speaking” and I asked for Miss Lyon. He asked me to repeat, then started laughing, saying “Miss Lyon’s here, but she’s out sunning herself right now.” Then, “Someone’s pulling your leg, you’ve reached the Catoctin Mountain Zoo…” I walked upstairs, with tears in my eyes, laughing, embarrassed…my parents were sitting at the dining room table. Dad asked me if I had reached Miss Lyon, I replied..”Yeah, but she was busy sunning herself.” Of course, this got a laugh out of him, and an apology. I was supposed to get the answering system! He had played this joke on some of the women he worked with… I can laugh about it now!

“Sometimes, I start a sentence
and I don’t even know where it’s going.
I just hope I find it along the way.”

does more harm
than a want of knowledge.”

Hope you have a great day!

Thanks for that, ground.
If you fall
I’ll be there

Take care
Stay safe
Much love
