“What do you mean, ‘It’s day two?’” the mom asked.
And my niece replied, “It’s day two after my birthday, Mommy!”
She reminds me of my grandfather in his later years. If he was 86 years old, he would say, “I’m in my 87th year.”

One of my favorite places to hunt from is the barn, especially on the cold and windy days. I have it set up perfectly. I have two square bales stacked on top of one another to rest my gun on, and I sit on a third bale. Because this set-up is in the loft of the barn, I have a great view of the fields below.
