No pictures, yet, but Gabrielle has made her brothers jealous again.

She went turkey hunting this morning with her boyfriend, Kylan. He called and she shot. She bagged her very first turkey.

This is just such strange activity coming from a girl who would run the blackbirds off before her older brother could shoot any with his bb gun. I recall nearly violent arguments about how people shouldn't be hunting animals when there's so much food to be purchased in grocery stores. Days of cold shoulder toward her brother for what she considered the unjustified killing of a deer.

Turkeys are very elusive and difficult to hunt. Kylan must have done a good job calling, and she must have done a good job shooting. When I get pictures to post, I will.

In the meantime, here's some of the others from Friday. The first is Zack on my grandpa's old tractor. He's moving the tire brusing rocks from one spot to another on the driveway. I need to order a load of gravel, and I'll do that in a couple weeks. Then he can move rocks with better results, I hope!

Here's a picture of Loretta:

And one of Garrison:

An attractive family and an attractive tractor. I'm looking forward to seeing a photo of the girl with her turkey. One of my brothers -- an excellent hunter -- just spent an entire week in the woods ,turkey hunting, and didn't get but one.

I'm sure she'll have pictures and when I get them, I'll post one or two.

Good job for her! Maybe it's the need to impress her boyfriend that did it. hehe Many a woman I know have gone hunting to impress boyfriends. hehe

Ha, I think you're right. Without that motivation, I don't think she'd ever have changed her stance.
