We take care of the land...it takes care of us.

We're just a couple of country dwellers......

that love nature, hunting, fishing, gardening, campfires, crafting, cooking, canning, laughter and living!!

Ya just never know what I'll blog about next...

So visit us often!

Spring weather 
has arrived

Just in time 
for Easter Weekend...

ready for a 

Sall and the cats 
have been giving me
a minute by minute
snow melt report
from the front porch....

I guess it's been 
melting so fast you can 
see it disappear
(so they say)

I've been busy
with a new project
(stay tuned for that)...

but, we 
did manage to pull
ourselves away 
from the excitement at home
to watch the 
Annual Gann Valley 
Easter Egg Hunt

population:  14 

I think their Annual Easter Egg Hunt
is just as popular as Pheasant Hunting
is in South Dakota...

kids came out in DROVES!!!

Kids of all ages...

all geared with running shoes,
and a bucket, basket
or a bag!!

I had forgotten 
how serious it was 
to hunt eggs...

of course, around here, 
we start honing our
hunting skills very early!!

I think the town
must have hid 50 or 60 plastic
candy filled eggs
for every resident
in town!


Every kid came back with
handfuls of candy
and a big grin!

 What a fun day for the kids
(and me too!)

The next time you're
in Gann Valley stop in for a soda
and leave'em a little egg money:)

Happy Easter!!

It looks like a great time was had by all. My Grandmother either went to school or taught at Gann Valley. I can't remember which. It was nice to see some photos since I've never been there.
