A hunting we will go

Mother's property covers five acres, much of which is wooded. Occasionally, a local hunter will ask Mother if he may hunt on her property. Mother usually allows such activity. One such hunter said to Mother that he was concerned about how Mother would know when he was lurking about.

"How will you know when I'm here?" he asserted. "I'll figure out a way to alert you!"

The next day, mother woke early and went to retrieve the paper. Upon her porch she found this:

Hunting is not very nice.

Does he hunt deer? Deer tasted like dog and dog tastes like goat is what someone told me.

Gross..

If Mom ever gets tired of Phil she can just send Cheney out there to shoot his face off.



Good call Toby.

Dear everyone:

The bad guys are on my ass. It's terrible. I am going to wait till it snows and go on and take Phil's snow block maker and make me an igloo and sit in there and sip whiskey and eat goat meat like Bostick was talking about.

I'm a-skairt and full of awfulness. Send power rays and shit like that.
