Scrambled

We don’t have cable or satellite at our house, but we pick up a handful of the free local ‘antenna’ channels. Depending on the day and where I stand in the living room, they either come in or they don’t. (Which is okay, I’m rarely home enough or care to watch that much television but when I do, it’s frustrating!)

The scrambled signal is a really fascinating abstraction.

It’s been one hell of a year.

 

Warm End

The closing weekend of rifle season was in the 40s, a bit warm for hanging Jason’s second (lucky) deer so we set to processing it right away outside the cabin. We had no running water because the previous week’s cold snap froze the well pump underground so…. a case a bottled water a smooth hour later we had four legs and some trimmings rinsed and bagged to bring home. And a heart. So this makes just two deer for this year, but it’s two more than last year and with the disturbance of logging in our woods I’m pretty surprised and thankful.
