Dove season ended around here several weeks ago...the hunters get a little wacky during that time and you wake up every morning to the sound of shotguns going off all around you (one of the "nice" things about living in the country)! This was pretty much a shock to me the first time and you WILL wake up in a hurry! Anyway, right after we moved out here, Jim decided I'd go dove hunting with him. The deal is that you shoot them in the air as they're flying by - and this is not an easy thing to do since they're flying at super sonic speed to get away. After he shot one, he told me to go retrieve it (do I look like a hunting dog or what!!!!) which I did. I picked it up with two fingers, extended it about as far away from my body as I could, and brought it back to him. Then he told me I had to "clean" it (not pretty), but I figure the "retriever" is only required to do so much. The next year, he bought me a shotgun, told me how to aim at the dove, and shoot. This was just not going to happen with me but I accidentally shot one and immediately wanted to bury it and say a prayer or two!!! I'm just NOT a dove hunter at all I don't guess. One thing they don't have a season on around these parts are buzzards/vultures though. Thank goodness!!!
Anyway, I was checking blogs the other day and on Leslie's The Crooked Stamper blog she'd made a card using this same stamp and sentiment. I not only loved her card, but also the stamp! SO, I immediately HAD to have it. It's from Art Impressions - What's not to love!!!!!
Thanks for stopping by............and have a great weekend!
