lol. I donít think anyone has more learning experiences than the Lions.


I have had meetings to attend and seed dealers to get together with to order next years seed. Should have the answers to all the worlds problems in another week or two at this rate. Itís nice to meet with people and get into some good discussions.

I did finish my Arrow

Some wrap the back first and pointed towards rear, then point to front and wrap front. It might be a better way to do it. Iíve never actually tried it.

I just wrap rear to side of shaft. You can change direction of rotation depending on which side you wrap them.

I donít always name my arrows, but some have special meanings for me.

This is one of those. I gathered everything on this arrow from my farm

ďFarm Fresh ď seemed kinda fitting

Very nice
The arrow looks great. I like the hand painted cresting. Machine cresting looks out of place in my opnion on a arrow such as yours. Thanks for posting.
take care,

Thanks Brian. Iím not sure if everyone likes my crest, but I do to. So I guess that makes at least two of us. I try not to make it too much, and something that is recognizable. I have tweaked it a little over the years, but itís basically the same crest I have used since I started making arrows . Itís nice when I go to a shooting event that if I lose an arrow and someone finds it. They know whose it is.

Still been keeping busy.

I have been spreading fertilizer again. And listening to RedEye radio. Got almost 100 acres spread this weekend.  Been to windy during the day so had to spread at night.

I got caught up to the trucks yesterday morning just as the sun was coming up.

Took a little nap and watched the Lions game. Theyíre actually getting to be entertaining to watch. Go Lions

I have two more trucks coming today but nothing really early so Iím going back to bed.

Been pretty busy yet with meetings, spreading fertilizer and working it in. Iím caught up for now with the fertilizer.

Yesterday my son, daughter in law and grandkids came over for an annual Christmas tree hunt and arrangement. I say arrangement because itís more like arranging big flowers than putting up a Christmas tree. I have put up a tree like this almost every year since 1984. It might look like a snoopy Christmas tree to some, but my family wonít use anything else. We love our Cedar Snoopy Christmas tree. It smells great and it doesnít shed a bunch of needles. And the price is right. I have a couple spots I have permission to harvest them.

I didnít get any pictures of harvest and not many of arranging them but I will post what I have.

We did two arrangements. My son and daughter in law getting the main tree secured in the stand. This is usually one of the tricky parts

I didnít get a picture of their tree when it was done but hereís ours. My wife wanted a smaller one this year as we have two new puppies that it will be their first Christmas tree.

She loved it. Said it was a cute little Christmas tree
