Debbie! I hope you like the painting and I hope all of you keep commenting! Spread the Love for May started today!

Today is a special day at my house-not only because it’s the second Spread the Love giveaway (another blog milestone)-it is also The Deer Hunter’s birthday!


He’s a great husband, a super Daddy, and one of the most compassionate people I have ever met. (of course he tries to hide it under all that tough deer hunter power stuff)

The Deer Hunter puts up with a lot from Chitter, Chatter and me- and I love him for every bit of it! Happy Birthday to The Stealthy Powerful Deer Hunter!


p.s. Many of my competent commentators have blogs of their own-A very interesting bunch of folks-you can read about parenting, farming, ranching, soaping, crafting, history, heritage, food, chickens, lizards, possums, ghosts, quilting and even cemeteries. Just click on their names in orange (up at the top of this post) to go for a visit. I know you’ll love them as much as I do!

    WOW! I am impressed with your talent for writing, Tipper. The array of emotions I feel while reading is amazing. A tear came to the eye as I was reading about your mom and I smiled to read about “Ramps” (Made me hungry–never tried them) and your love for the girls and husband. Yes, Tipper, you are blessed in so many ways. Thanks for sharing your life and keeping your heritage alive.

    In this time of divorce and unhappiness it is wonderful to hear a woman who adores her husband and family as you do and I happen to know that he feels the same about you and the girls and let’s don’t forget Ruby! What a beautiful wonder to see!!
    Congratulations to Debbie, hope she likes the Angel and hope she understands that it brings a very special blessing to her home.

    I come from a long line of deer hunters and my husband hunts as well. I had to laugh at the comments of Susan about dumb deer. All I can say is that they are eating every plant around my house. Darned deer.

    Almost too late! Sorry!
    Happy Birthday Deer Hunter!
    Congratulations Debbie!
    Too funny about the deer flinging themselves in front of your car!
    We have suicide deer, squirrels, opossums…also.

    deer hunter huh? 🙂 i was used to “ahi fever”…when the yellowfin tuna ran in hawaii…all the boaters called in sick to go fishing for the big ones. opening day of deer season here in da UP is like a holiday. schools are closed and so are some businesses. everybody goes to “deer camp”. it was sort of bizarre to me. me, i do not like the deer at all. if they dont step all over it, they eat it, or flinging themselves in front of your car…stupid stupid animals. congrats debbie on the win.
