Monday through Wednesday I went to a wrestling camp. hard to go from little 7th and 8th grades to high schoolers but I should get used to it anyway, i'm going to be a freshman. only got one win and then hurt my thumb and I cant wrestle one handed. I had to teach a kid there, it was his first day and he thought he could take on the world, then I demonstrated a move on him and he said "that hurt too much, go easier on me." I got kinda got frustrated at him but and almost told him he joined the wrong sport, then I realized that a-lot of kids at my school don't do anything physical and just play video games.

I did a 10k (6.2 miles) road race with my daughter today.  She ran it and got 9th place overall and was the first female to finish.  This was her 3rd time winning that race.  I walked it with my elk pack that weighs 40 lbs.  I finished 10th out of 68 walkers.  My goal was to beat 1 hour and 40 minutes.  I finished at 1 hour and 26 minutes.  Somehow we forgot to get a picture together.

Very cool, Clint.  :OK   You're gonna have to carry rocks in your pockets to keep from blowing away. How much weight have you lost so far?

Thanks BJ.

Pat,  90 lbs and holding steady.  I'd like to lose another 10 or 15 lbs before my elk trip.  But I don't know if that will happen.

Good job Clint. 90 pounds. That is dedication. Most important though is doing this with your daughter. Sounds as though she did a great job.

Clint, you are looking lean and mean!  Good work! Finishing 10th with a 40 lb pack as a handicap is something to brag about.  If you run outa arrows on those elk you can always walk 'em into the ground!

I am proud of you for taking care of yourself like this. And for being there for your family!  You are a good man, sir.

I loaded up a bunch of stuff and headed to the youth mentor day yesterday. I went last year and was pretty impressed with the effort this local Sportsmans Club put into this event. They asked me if I would come back and I told them I'd love to if it worked out with my farming schedule.

My buddies Gary and Randy came along to help out. Took a couple pictures before event got to busy to. We were very well received. I had hides, stone points and knives, a bunch of selfbows and my presentation pole. I had some staves in different stages from bark on to roughed out. I had my two buck racks and the bows I shot them with. I had a bunch of PA magazines including the one I wrote the article about attending this event last year.
It was a lot of fun and I'm sure I will try to do it again next year. Would definitely encourage anyone to do something like this. They did a great job putting it together and it was very well attended.

I have had a great garden this year and given away bushels of tomatoes and okra. today I looked the accumulation of both on my kitchen counter and thought "I like stewed tomatoes and okra, why not can some for the future?"

I did need a few more tomatoes after culling all the bad spots and green cores from my tomato stash so I added a can of diced tomatoes I had in the cabinet. It wasn't until after the can was in the pot that I realized it was italian spiced with a good bit of oregano in it, this made for an interesting mix.

I added an onion and a couple of cloves of garlic as I cooked down the mix for canning.

I have a variety of different size canners, the 8qt vintage Presto in the picture was on the Facebook Marketplace for $15, the lady who sold it had just put all new seals in it which cost about $8 so it was too good of a bargain to pass up.

I grew up eating okra and tomatoes and fried okra and steamed okra.YUM!
 I put up lots of tomato sauce I make each year. The last few years I've been buying boxed of tomatoes from the farmers market(about $7 per box later in the summer) for my tomato sauce with onions, peppers, garlic and herbs and spices. We had 3 failure years in a row with our garden with either crows or the blight taking it all. I freeze my sauce in gallon ziplock bags and it's so nice to have real, flavorful tomato sauce in January and February.
 I have a great, simple pickled okra recipe if anyone is interested. Doesn't go through a hot bath, just boiling liquid into the jar of okra, garlic and dill seeds. Makes great tarter sauce, too.
