Brett’s visit

Brett was  a visitor on November 20, 2010 and he was a busy fellow.  We got up at 5am and in the deer stand before daylight.  Very foggy, no chance of seeing a deer.  Prior to his visit, I had put my dummy deer near a feeder that he would be watching.  About 8:30am, the fog began to disappear and he noticed the dummy.  “Papaw, I see a deer.  Ok shoot him.”  He put the cross hair of 22.250 on his shoulder and fires.  “Did you get him?”  Brett looks at me and says, “he’s a fake”.  We go to check the dummy and sure enough, the bullet was a killing shot.

Then to nursing home to visit with mother until her lunch time.  He did not care to discuss the deer that he shot.

From the nursing home it was off to Milam Settlers Day 2010.   Brett enjoyed visiting booths with handmade hunting items.  He just had to have a homemade small cross bow.  Then to learn how to throw a ‘tomahawk’ at a log.  From there, he watch the making of lead balls used for the older black powder rifle and then to join a cowboy with ‘lariat spinning’.  We wandered til about 2pm and back home to get short rest.

By 3:30pm, we were back in deer stand.  To past the time, he did some whittling on a sword.  We stayed til dark and saw nothing other than a big bright moon.

On Sunday Brett passed out a big bag of bananas to staff /residence.  They named him the ‘little banana man’.  Then Brett and I joined Ma for a 9am church service.

And then we joined Nanna for services First United Methodist Church and lunch after the service.

And finally Brett loaded up with Nannie for trip back to his home.

A good time was had by all.
