We always get one, it never fails. A new year I mean. We received one even in the year 2000. No matter what happens, time moves along,
The New Year is traditionally a time for fresh starts, celebrations, resolve, and deep breaths. Let the future come, we are ready for it.
Our life here at Lost Creek has changed; we have moved, we have retired, we have added more chuck wagon teaching to our roster, are heading back into the world of commerce for J Ts goods, we have made a commitment to dedicate ourselves to a bit of growth, and we hope to always improve, always inspire,always kick out and move!
We wish for you the same, A year of blessings and aspirations, a year of positive change and love.
From Lost Creek to You! Happy Tidings and Great Cheer!
Our JT has an annual hunting expedition down to Windom with his old buddy Wally. Every year he gears up, sorts through his blaze orange clothing, prepares his weapon, oils his boots, and sets off.
He always gets a deer, usually early Saturday morning. I think for him, the hunting is a combination of putting food on the table and being with like minds. Men who can get down and grubby, take naps, drink beer, talk about manly things. They have a week of fried potatoes and bacon, steaks, smoked meats, and bad movies on Wally’s ancient VCR. A week of bonding and becoming hunters, ancient providers.
We are not sure if we are mourning the ending of summer or reveling in the beginning of Autumn. Tilly loves the heat and sun, while JT loves cool breezes and chilly nights. Maybe what is happening is that we are hoping for the compromise of Fall, sunny afternoons, yet bright colored trees, cool breezes, with brilliant blue lakes resting in the daylight.
Autumn, time to pack away our summer gear, no more events season, maybe put away the grass cutter, and check out the snow shovels.
Cool nights, sunny days, hey what could be better?
