    Same here. There are a few legal advantages to marrying--inheritance issues, visitation rights in case of hospitalization, +??

    My wife & I did the Ancestry.com test kits before Christmas. They found a first cousin who has been searching for her history since her adoptive parents died.

    My DNA & hers were a strong match. It seems that my mother's sister gave a child up for adoption in 1963 in Hamilton, Ontario.
    We were connected by email through the site & I told her to call me.


    We talked for over an hour. I tried to fill her in on some medical histories and family lore. She had done extensive research on her birth mother & our shared grandparents. My aunt, who is now 85, denies she is the mother.

    My mother, 91 years old, also gave a child up for adoption in 1960. My newly found cousin had found my long lost sister in her research & they visited each other over Christmas. They are in the same town.

    I wasn't looking for any new relatives but here they are. I will share a 5 generation family photo with them and my grandfather's WWI US Army history. And anything else that they may need (except money).

    Funny how life works.

    Been thinking about doing a dna test myself.My mother is was adopted sometime in the late 20's.Zero information.Worth a try,l guess.
    All kinds of info on my dads side.All the way back to the mid 1800's! That was awesome reading about family members and where they lived.

    Out getting stuck in the snow with some friends for two hours before we were able to snow shoe over 10 miles the last couple days, bagging a lake at 8400'. Camping in the backcountry for two nights. Basecamp was maybe under two miles in on Thursday, leaving our rigs about 2PM, out today, Saturday. Only 18 or 19F Friday morning, beat the forecasted storm out today.

    70 mile stretch of I-80 near Lake Tahoe here in Kalifornia was closed since yesterday, I see just reopened 10 minutes ago. People scrambled to get motel rooms last night I guess per the news. I don't feel sorry for people who traveled to go skiing or to visit Reno/Tahoe area coming up east bound from Kalifornia when they had many days notice of this big storm. It started snowing on my trip back home on Saturday around midday. 10" to 12" of snow here, has settled good with the light rain overnight on it. Gotta buy a new snow shovel, broke my Melnor one going back to the early 80's.

    :bananadance: :yay: Shot a buck today with the flintlock, miracles do happen!
    Of course it had to be a buck that lost it's horns so it gets tagged as a doe, totally legal and I still have my backtag which I can shoot a buck or doe with during flintlock only. Now I need to be the dog and get one to my buddy, at least we have meat that equals one deer each and anything else is a bonus.

    Yea, until the smoke screen clears it's more or less :fingerscrossed: and :pray: ! :laughing:
    Last time after the smoke cleared, the deer was still standing there looking at me. :facepalm:It takes awhile to get reloaded, by that time they are long gone!
    I know I shot it, I'll be the only one cleaning the gun, I never leave black powder fouling in overnight and they are a PITB to clean properly.

    Can't believe I have to get out the lawnmower again. It just can't wait until spring. Stop complaining & get to work!

    Evening all:
    I hope it isn't this hard next year, we need to regroup and do things a little differently, especially during archery season. So far we have seen around 130 deer and our success rate is dismal, four days left till it's over!

    Carl I hope during the last four days of the season you harvest " Ole Elmer" or whatever you call the largest buck in your hunting area.

    Then time to think about walleye fishing.

    Hear on the news that the Dems want more gun regs? What's new Pelosi. Even inherited weapons would have to go thru gun shops to be transferred! How crazy is that! Who holds them until transfer is done and what if it doesn't? I'm mostly thinking heirlooms, granddad's stuff.

    Afternoon all:
    The good news for you guys is that there are only 3 days left of hunting stories, the bad news is that I have another one! :rolleyes: :laughing:
    Today I was the dog for my buddy, first area I got a doe to fly by him at full speed, he never got a shot! Second area I got 2 buck out to him, 1 was legal, little far but he took a standing shot and the flintlock didn't fire! :facepalm: We are both shaking our heads and laughing at the same time over how this hunting season has gone so far.

    Nowhere do I see any plan to fire up a grill. ;)

    On a serious note do you age the venison or smoke the sausage?

    We aged both deer, the guy that makes the sausage does smoking, but I don't get the sausage smoked. He makes excellent deer sticks/slim jims also, but usually I only get them made if I have a 2nd deer. When I do get them made they don't last long :drool:, plus I give some away to buddies.

    Haven’t shared much on this thread lately but wanted to share my latest “upgrade”. Took advantage of the last MobTown armor sale and bought the final skid plate (transfer case) At 70 I have to consider what I can still do laying on my back in the driveway. Takes me a little longer then younger folks but finished the install in 3 hours. Now off to find some rock.
