This past Thursday DH & DS flew to South Dakota for a fun filled
weekend with "The Boys".
It was the annual pleasant & quail hunting trip that their boss gets up for
a few employees & customers.
Their destination was the Thumbleweed Lodge in
Harrold, South Dakota.
Here they are standing behind the birds from Friday mornings shoot.
They got home Monday night, tried, but full of great memories. You ask DS about the
hunt and all he can say is "awesome".
(It was his first experience at a nationally known hunting lodge)
And guess what was on our doorsteps Tuesday evening when I got home?
A box of 164 dressed pleasant breasts.
So I guess we will be eating pleasant this winter and some will be shared
with friends & family.

(Gee, I started this poster 4 days ago....maybe I'll get in finished now.)
Two weekends ago DH and I went to Asheville for a few days of R & R. It was a well desired treat to ourselves after the wedding. We stayed at the Grove Park Inn and had a great time. Of course we went into Biltmore Village for a little shopping and down town to "Topps" (a great shoe shop).
Our last night at the Grove Park we ate on the Sunset Terrace for supper. This is the view facing out from the open air porch.
Here we are after the sun went down.
The weekend after, I traveled back up I-40 to Montreat, NC for a quilting retreat.
There were 21 women total.
We pieced, laughed, talked, pieced, laughed and talked some more.
Designer Stitches came in Saturday morning to join us.
Quiltkemosabe got a few paper-pieced stars for the LQS block of the month finished.
LP got her LBB's all sewn in rows and attached to a quilt she has been working on for over 6 years. Was she happy to have it finished.
All in all everyone had a great time and no one would believe how many
quilts got completed. There are two quilt shops in Montreat, so of course,
there where trips to them to see what fabrics we could find. Some even made more than one trip. Also a few drove into Asheville to the quilt shop near Biltmore Village.
Quiltkemosabe & I even ate lunch in the village on Saturday after

Things here on Fernleaf Lane can now get back to normal.
The day after my last post DH, DS & wife and DD & boy friend went to Asheville
for "Christmas at Biltmore"
After dinner in the Stable Resturant and doing the candle light tour of the house, Allen dropped to his knee on the front steps of the house
and asked Ashley to be his wife, with all of us watching.
Of course she was surprised and said YES!
