Missouri Amazon

Missouri Amazon

Hello everyone, from Drenching Rabbit! While it seems like there was probably a time when northeast Missouri was not like the Amazon, that is simply a distant memory right now. We have been getting wet on the regular with little chance of reprieve in sight. Some of the plants are happy, though not always the […]

New Placement

I know you may not want to hear about it but I’ve scheduled a few days away next week to work on the upcoming deer season. Since I won’t be able to hunt this location until November, I need to get as much preparation done now in order to limit my groundwork then. I’ve got […]

Enduring The Ruption Family

It is such a challenge being a person.  Have you ever noticed? One of the strongest difficulties is a family who seems to live on every one’s street. Meet the Ruption twins, Dis and Inter. These two are not easy to handle.  They are truly a hand full.  Their cousins are of the Un family; […]

Rutledge Renegades

Our sympathy to family and friends of Helen Purdy.  Also our sympathy to family and friends of Byron Ewalt. Carol and Joe Murfin, Marvia and Gary Livingood and Gloria Guinn came to Martin Guinn’s at Colony to help dad and Reva Hustead celebrate Father’s Day with a Bar-B-Que. Paul and Lydia Zimmerman went to Pennsylvania […]

Hot & Stormy

Hot & Stormy

Phew! Hot and stormy, wet and muggy, tons going on– must be summertime at DR! Tereza here with the news of the week that was, or at least what I can recall of it from my memory, word from community mates, and the info on my calendar… Three tri-community folk had birthday events this week. […]

Compartmentalizing

Men have this uncanny ability to compartmentalize most of what we do. We can simply, mentally, separate one thing from another. We can neatly detach our fatherhood from our hunting and fishing, and each of these from us being a husband. Some say we are organized; my wife would beg to differ or even laugh […]

The Fledge

The Fledge

It’s always a busy summer here at the trails.  The mowing in itself has been taking a lot of time.  Trying to get it done between rains, whew.  We had 6.07 inches of precipitation in May and well on our way to catching that here in the middle of June.  We have also been devoting […]

Rutledge Renegades

Reva Hustead and Martin Guinn went to LaBelle Park to attend the Hustead Reunion on Sunday, June 14th. Reva and Martin went to Palmyra, Kirksville and Hannibal. Dorothy Hunolt and Marjorie Peterson went to Bloomfield, Iowa. Mona E. Tague and daughters Jennifer and Valerie got to Quarry at Concentration Camp Mauthausen, Austria. On Friday, June […]

Encouragement

One of the hardest things to do, it seems like, is find the good in situations. Sometimes as a hunter or a fisherman we tend to measure our day according to whether or not we have brought home something for the wall or the table. Without these trophies, sometimes we bemoan the day, cast blame, […]

Growing

Growing

While the June-bearing strawberries are starting to taper off now, berry season has just begun. Raspberries and mulberries have been full-on in the past week, and this morning Sara brought in our first major harvest of black raspberries. Not having brought a bowl to the garden they were cradled in the trough of a very large and healthy […]
