Looking at the canals, I wanted to get in a boat,throw in a days rations,--with my old British Seagull engine and slowly Putt-Putt off to Distant Lands-:)

You've seen the attached before--would love to live there--Grape Arbor on top, "eine Kuhe", wind and water--

Yeah, I love that painting! I don't think I'll go into Venice, it will be too crowded at Easter, and thus loses its charm I hope to walk in the Marmolada! I'm not so much a fan of Auntie Lena, but like the song about the canals (grachten) and Deep in my heart you guessed?

Speaking of magical this mornings drive in to work was very pleasant just finished raining and that fresh rain smell was in the air, the mist still hadnt lifted giving the landscape thet ehtereal feeling and really made the green of the wheat fields and trees pop. I like walking in the woods and meadows on these mornings, the fog mist makes everything seem mysterious, as you walk shadows slowly turn into trees, barns, hills. And like a snowstorm it makes the world close in on you and feel very cozy, personal, like all thet exists at the moment are your immediate surroundings or what is visible through the fog and mist. The mist cloaks all things and softens the hard edges, makes it dreamy if you will.


Enough rambling for now hope you have a good day. My trees arrived last evening so I need to finalize where I am going to plant all seven of them. Looks like a busy weekend for me. Hopefully it will dry out some by then so I can get them in.


Jeff:)

Boy, you did have a magical morning , Jeff--Love that type of respite--really a much needed diversion.

Tree planting time--only thing better than fresh fruit is more of same--:)

Fruit trees are a lost art.
Truth be told, they might be more in danger than vegetable seeds.

Ax: Pics finally of archery range.
http://gallery.me.com/thedegraffs/10...13027481390001

Target after the boys and I shot today, my five year old actually does pretty good at hitting the target most of the time.

http://gallery.me.com/thedegraffs/10...13027481400001

Quiver and Ben Pearson Longbow have a flemish string on order.

Other bow is a Ben Pearson too Collegian Model light target recurve about 25 to 30 lb got it cheap on ebay and figured it would be good for developing proper form with the lighter draw.

Ok last bows for the night the vintage bear tigercat recurve i have been shooting another ebay deal. 40# 62" long it does shoot smooth.

http://gallery.me.com/thedegraffs/10...13027481520001

http://gallery.me.com/thedegraffs/10...13027481530001


I dont have a string yet for the little target recurve but have one on the way plan on using it at first for target practice and fine tuning my draw, anchor, release etc. Then moving up to the 40# recurve and 50# longbow and passing it on to my ten year old for his next bow.

It went well, Sir Ax. Thanks for asking.
We got to go to a lot of the art studios in Gatlinburg and enjoyed our cabin immensely with the exception that there were bunch of.......ummm..............
Non-American's who rented the cabin next door and they were playing gangster rap, etc...........very loudly. Could not enjoy the porch because of it and could not call in a complaint, because it was through another rental company.
We decided to get a more remote cabin next time.
BTW, we didn't realize it, but our favorite artist has a website. His drawings on Appalachian people are just incredible.

Tweed,

Appreciate your offer to tell my friend in Gatlingburg, hello for me, didn't see your post until after you had left.

Remote Cabin--Buddy, the one I'd like to rent would be 5 miles, by foot--:D

Jeff,

Can't believe it--some very fine equipment there.
Old Ben and I would get along, very well, and the quiver--top notch, good leather,hand tooled, and W.Diamondback insert.

The Collegian--quarter draw for 10 seconds, repeat and work up to Full Draw and 30 seconds, over time, good break in for the muscles and tendons.--Nice bow.

Had a Wing Archery Thunderbird, 62" extremely fast and smooth--the "Bear Bunch"--really gave me a hard time, till they shot it.

I'm exasperated---Lettuce!!--it will hardly make here,either dies , bolts or flops out--guess it might do well in late winter--just too hot.Lots of folks here, what little makes, pour hot bacon grease over a bowlful and chow down--Let me know when the Port Orfords come in.

You got a nice place there, and tell the Lads, "Keep it in the Ten Ring", they appear to be doing well with the bows.

Package arrived many thanks I brewed up a pot of the Sumatra this AM superb, I see why it is your favorite. The Boys were thrilled with the baseball cards, (five year old slept with them). My wife thought the Peridot was beautiful and you must be a bit Psychic as that is her birthstone. I will put the points and knocks to use as well as the feathers. Again the package was a very pleasant surprise.


I got one batch of cedar arrows last evening and will post some pics soon. Also got the flemish string will have to try it out when I get a moment.

I will send the stuff for my Mom out to her, I am sure she will be delighted. Did you find those garnets? They were beauties.

Beginning to worry a bit, guess postal service delayed it a bit.

Glad to see you got it and hope eveyone enjoys--

On the Peridot if you can find rough stones, Peridot can be melted, into a larger one,then faceted--wow three carat Peridot necklace.

I used to do faceting, I believe the garnets were from Burma or India, Opal from Coober Peddy,Au.--NC garnets are prime--they are very deep red and prettier than rubies.Have quite a few 'Bama garnets in the rough.

Excited about the Flemish string--Will send you the 2nd # of Sumatra,I promised at Xmas, the shelf was bare of it for some time, only one left.

Stau safe, Ax! Those storms are supposed to arrive here in the middle of the night. I hate when that happens. If I have to face a storm, I'd rather do it in the daylight.

Camp Stew:

Dutch Oven, good cut of meat, potatos, onions, carrotts, and garlic/salt pepper to taste.
cup or two of water.

Dig a pit deep enough so the top of oven has at least 4 -6 inches top clearance, fill bottom of pit with hot coals from campfire, put aluminum foil between lid and pot, and place in pit, cover all around and on top with more coals---and cover with some dirt.

Go off and do your thing for the day and supper will be waiting.:D

If you have a top bread insert for the oven, put in cornbread mix or bisquits.

The mornings bit of useless knowledge:--Absinthe.(The Green Faerie"

French wine grape crops failed so Absinthe was born to substitute.Origionally all natural organic ingrediants.

Wine producers waged sabotage campaigns as it gained over wine, thus "poison", and people go "mad", and some did after 15-20/day:D.

Wine makers finally won out---

Ax: Bought the tigercat because the price and weight were right. For a recurve it is actually decent length 62", smoother and faster then the popular 56" or 58" ones. I like longer limbs too smoother and faster overall. Have seen a few 64" hunting or mid weight recurves and some long up to 68" or 70" target recurves like the Wing Archery Presentation II. One on ebay now 35#.

The tigercat for a 40# bow really flings the arrows. Puts them through the Indian cord target matt I bought the 25# bow doesnt. And on stacked cardboard/partical board targets at local archery range it buries them pretty deep, so they are difficult to pull. I dont have a chronograph and am not really worried about actual velocity just know they penetrate real good.

Good morning Ax. Not much new here my potatoes are popping out of the ground after the recent rains, getting some asparagus we ate a batch monday for dinner.
Shot some of the port orford arrows last evening they fly pretty well out of the tigercat, need to try flinging a few with the longbow.

I am grouping pretty decent at ten yards, still a few flyers here and there where I mess up a release, dont anchor in the exact same spot or some other form error but getting tighter and more consistent. Backed up to 20 yards groups opened up double in size or more but still not bad. Backed up to thirty I can keep them all on the 36" diameter target but forget about the ten ring, do manage to keep most in 3-ring or higher a flyer here and there in the 1 or 2 ring but none off target or completely outside the scoring rings.

Looking forward to a Dinner date with my wife tonight, kids are at grandma's for easter break so we get a chance to go out just the two of us. It is always nice when we get the chance to have a date night.

"Dig a hole about this deep, put in a handful of 13-13-13 in the bottom, two handfuls if you have small hands,add a handful of lime, and mix it up Real Good, put about this much soil on top of it".

"Pinch off the bottom branches of the plant (pinch, it seals it off), those hairy things are roots, and bury it up to the first big branch, 'cept for lookin after it ,all along, and maybe some Stop-Rot--have all you want."
