The reality of what just transpired kicks me between the shoulders and I scramble out of the blind leaving my bow behind and head toward my arrow. I find it covered with dark blood. It doesn’t look like a lung shot to me….I smell the arrow and the scent of heavy blood fills my nostrils.I head back to my blind and simply give things time. Finally I start my blood trail finding nothing, not a drop and I note one of the small game trails the buck used to blaze away toward the Southwest. Man my mind was racing as I walked that little deer trail, working down through the brush 20 yards, staring for sign and not finding much...I note up ahead.
I yell out THANK YOU LORD!!!!! I move around to the left to see where I hit him and find a perfect heart shot.

I’m a Dad, ex-military officer and an outdoor kind of guy centered with God, country, family and friends enjoying life’s blessings. I have a big penchant for fun, laughter and always view life in a very positive manner. I’m a straight up guy, it’s how I live. Life is way too short for fluff and games. I enjoy travel, camping, hiking, kayaking the Guadalupe River, archery, fishing/hunting, golf, surfing, evenings in any city, nights under the stars, thunderstorms during warm summer nights, campfires, everything water and recreation, the ocean-mountains-desert-woodlands and everything in the USA. I enjoy meeting new friends and playing catch up with old friends. I have a passion for photography, most particularly outdoor photography and enjoy pursuing that one photographic moment, where ever that moment takes me. I love muscle cars and periodically roll the Texas Hill County, in a classic Z/28, going to no place in particular taking all things in. During my early years I wore a uniform and served my country giving it my all. The highs and lows mixed with heavy shots of adrenaline in a true humanitarian mission at sea became a part of me. I could not leave it, I was addicted, and during this period of my life, I honestly thought this world was normal living. The excitement and adventure of never knowing what Mother Nature would bring, how challenging the situation was at hand, coupled with saving lives in the worst of situations was the ultimate reward. In retrospect, I would do it all over again - OH YEAH! We pushed our lives at times, God watching over us, and we did everything we could possible do. The ultimate America’s Team - SEMPER PARATUS! God Bless those who lost a love one at Sea. “Fair Winds and Following Seas” to the souls we could not save. Good deeds will be rewarded when you least expect it. So live life pure, stay positive, focused and follow your heart. Smile like you have never smiled before, even when it hurts inside. In time that smile will take over everything you do. Embrace change, learn to give unselfishly, live your life as if it’s your last day on Earth. Always remember to give thanks, show love and God Bless! Rob

Take a look at HEMA's product page. You can't order anything and it's in Dutch but wait a couple of seconds and watch what happens. This company has a sense of humor and a great web developer. I thought you might enjoy it! :)

All You Need to Know About Life
You Can Learn from a Leprechaun...
Life is too short for long faces.
When you’re happy — sing.
When you’re sad —sing louder!
Expect magic to happen, and it will.
If you can’t find a rainbow, paint your own.
The word “impossible” is NOT an Irish word.
Never walk so tall that you can’t see the “wee folk.”
If you’re feeling blue, wear lots of green and think hopeful thoughts.
No one ever outgrows the need for warm hugs, special dreams,
or a wee bit of mischief.
Quit trying to catch a leprechaun, and just BE one!
Have a Happy-go-lucky St. Patrick’s Day!

Don Marco was born in Northern Minnesota in the late 1920's. His interest in art was evident even before starting school. As a young adult in the Army Air Corp, he began his life's career in Air Traffic Control, which continued until his retirement from Honolulu International Airport in 1973. Much of his spare time was spent as a professional artist. Before retirement, Don started developing a technique to create fine art, using Crayola Crayons. Shortly after retiring, he published his first print. Living in Southern California, his work was in demand, including commissions from Burt Reynolds and a one-man show at his Dinner Theater in Florida.
Hard to imagine these are done with crayons! What talent! Charming, Just Charming!
