About Me

I have been on DU since 2006 under \"SteveM\" and later \"SteveW.\" Due to an account mix-up and a computer crash, I have \"rejoined\" as Eleanors38, but my history at DU includes the names cited.

Dove still persistently flying into degraded sunflower patch...

Even on an overcast, windy, rather cool day, dove were still flying into an oat field with a "perennial" patch of sunflowers. Durable, late afternoon field! Got six with 12 shells, fired from an IC choked Rem 870, all on the fly. Funny, how your shooting improves over the season!

In a peculiar twist, general gun deer season opens on November 5, while the first half of the long dove season overlaps to Nov 6. I have not seen that before, so I may try for a deer, and if everyone else gets one on the fifth, go for a few more dove on the sixth. What a treasure to hunt both species on well-kept land.

35,000 vote in Travis Co. first day. My line was 30 mins, so I sped it up...

by voting straight Demo.

I have noted 2, 3, or 4 identical posts in succession in various groups, fora...

Is this a glitch on your end, or a posting error? No quibbles with post appropriateness, but I don't know without searching each where the core of the discussion lies or if a post is a road to no where. Can this be corrected? Thanks in advance.

Grim trigger warning: Google "pictures 1928 hurricane."

Old tale my Grandmother told of that hurricane when it moved upstate and passed over Pasco County:

"Oh, that wind bent the trees over close to the ground. Then, we ran out to tend to the animals and get wood, then ran back in [the eye]. Well that wind came back the other way, and straightened those trees back up!"

Some humor during a bad time.

Note that the 1928 hurricane tracked a path similar to some projections of Matthew. God, I hope it doesn't squat on Lake Okeechobee (40 miles across) and create another self-contained storm surge! This is where over 2,500 souls drowned as "their eyes were watching God" (Z. N. hurston).
