    It was a typical Northeartern Fall day today, so I decided to take my english setter of LLewellin strain, out for a run and a decent walk for myself. I love this time of year with cool temps and color everywhere.

    For ones who like to use their imagination, I wore blue jeans and a long sleeve jersey shirt tucked in and black ball cap. Not sun glasses today as the sun wasn't shining in ones face, but rather being lower in the sky. Fininshed off in kangaroo leather field boots, tough leather but lightweight sorta like me when I have to be.

    With my blankpistol hanging out of my front pocket, no I don't shoot blanks but my pistol does, I proceeded to walk down the long lane through the tall trees.

    My mind drifted as I walked along, but I continued to handle the setter as she searched for her favorite quarry, the ruffed grouse.


    After traveling ~1 mile on different lanes and through small sapling and brair, the setter came on point looking like and Edmund Osthaus painting, after which the bird rocket toward the blue sky above. This is sweet.

    I had a nice walk back to my jeep.


    this was part of my day today. Thanks for reading.

    These indian-summer days are still sunny and warm enough, as long as you keep your heart rate up doing something. If you slow down, you need to put on a shirt. I finished stacking the last of the firewood this afternoon. Could go cut some more I guess - plenty of beetle-killed pine trees in my woods, and the dogs are up for it.
