Next I put two dots with my magic marker where I want tips of quill to be placed. They are place lined up with string at front of fletch. On  top and one on bottom of arrow shaft. I wrap the exposed quill on with sinew and a little tb2 to waterproof it.

This is what I have so far

Had a really nice Thanksgiving with most of my siblings and family. Was beautiful day. Pretty white frost covered everything in the morning and the weather was nice.

We watched the Lions almost win their fourth game in a row. Not quite though. We are pretty use to not quite winning. No one was surprised when we kicked field goal to take lead with 23 seconds left and we still lost. At least it was a interesting game


Speaking of interesting games. Iím getting ready to go watch the Ubly high school state championship at Ford Field.

Should be fun.

I will let you know how it goes.

Go Bearcats

Take care

Thanks Brian. I forgot to show how I strip fletch at rear. Iíll try to remember to when I finish it up.

Just got back from Ford Field. Was a good game.

Started out pretty Rocky when Ubly fumbled on their first possession. They were marching down field and the fumble really took the wind out of their sails.

They quickly found themselves down 0-12 a situation they hadnít experienced.

They regrouped and fought back hard.

They tied it up 20-20 in the fourth quarter. Unfortunately they couldnít hold them. The final score was 20-26.

They have nothing to be ashamed of. Played a very good game

Tied up 20-20 in the fourth quarter. Was really getting interesting at this point.

Thanks Bob. Yes Iím sure it will be a memory to last a lifetime.

Iím really surprised how much my grandson learned being ball boy all season. Heís watched a lot of game film and learned a lot of formations. He definitely knows more about football already than I do.
The team really likes him and I hear it from them when I talk with them. Thatís pretty cool

Yeah Pappy in all honesty it might be a good thing. Sometimes you learn more from your loses than your wins.
