WE DROVE INTO HAMILTON YESTERDAY AFTERNOON TO ATTEND THE ANNUAL APPLE DAYS...MAINLY TO BUY ME ONE OF THEIR DELICIOUS APPLES PIES.

WE DIDN'T ARRIVE TILL ALMOST 3:30 AND AS WE APPROACHED THE APPLE PIE BOOTH MY HEART SANK AS WE SAW NO PIES IN SIGHT. JW ASKED THE LADY BEHIND THE REGISTER IF SHE HAD ANY PIES LEFT AND SAID "YOU WON'T BELIEVE THIS! BUT I HAVE BEEN TELLING FOLKS SINCE ONE O'CLOCK THAT WE WERE SOLD OUT AND WE JUST FOUND THIS COOLER FULL OF PIES!!!" AWESOME! SO WE CAME AWAY WITH A WONDERFUL LOOKING HOMEMADE PIE.
WE WERE THRILLED TO SEE THAT THE PRICE OF GAS HAD ONCE MORE DROPPED AS WE PULLED INTO THE GAS STATION TO FILL UP. THERE ACTUALLY IS A STATION FARTHER UP THE STREET THAT IS SELLING THEIR GAS FOR $3.36 A GALLON BUT IF YOU DON'T PAY CASH THEY CHARGE 11 CENTS MORE A GALLON FOR CREDIT OR DEBIT!! WOW! AND SINCE WE HAD SPENT MOST OF OUR CASH AT THE APPLE DAYS EVENT WE OPTED FOR THE SECOND STATION.
JW ADDED ANOTHER WONDERFUL MOOSE TO MY COLLECTION. HE'S BEAUTIFUL.
AS WE WERE LEAVING THE HOT SPRINGS THE OTHER DAY WE SPOTTED A HERD OF BLACK COWS IN A FIELD NEXT TO THE HIGHWAY. SOMETHING CAUGHT MY EYE AND I SAID"SOMETHING LOOKS STRANGE IN THAT HERD." AS WE LOOKED CLOSER THERE WAS A LARGE BLACK MOOSE HIDING AMONG THE HERD OF COWS!! AS HUNTING SEASON IS APPROACHING I CERTAINLY HOPE HE FINDS A BETTER PLACE TO HID. BUT THEN AGAIN, YOU ARE NOT ALLOWED TO HUNT IN PRIVATE PASTURES SO MAYBE HE IS MUCH MORE SMARTER THAN WE THOUGHT!!

HI KEEWEE, AFTER ENCOUNTERING SO MANY MOOSE SINCE MOVING HERE I DID SOME READING AND ACCORDING TO THE INDIAN LEGENDS AND MY BIRTH SIGN THE MOOSE IS MY SPIRIT ANIMAL. SO THAT EXPLAINS WHY I GET TO SEE SO MANY OF THEM SO UP CLOSE.
