I have so many fond memories of Aunt June and the ol Homestead. She out lived all of her Siblings. The words "tough as nails" falls short in describing her. One of my fondest Memories of Aunt June, is somewhere in a box and buried by years of dust. I have a recipe for Groundhog that she wrote out for me way back in the 70s. Aunt June always had a Beautiful and well kept Flower and Vegetable Garden, near the small pond area of her yard. After looking at all the Beautiful Flowers, she gave me the tour of her vegetable garden. She had a big ol fat Groundhog marauding her garden, again, and one summer while visiting with her, she showed me the damage he had recently done, decimating the tops off her prized vegetables. She pointed out to the pasture where she always had seen him. Low and behold, there he was, standing straight up at one of his many burrows, about 180 yards out. We both laughed and she hollered at him. I told her that if she wanted him dispatched, I could solve that menace right now. She said something to the effect of what a bother it would be and that it would be difficult to sneak up on him. I said who has to sneak, I have my ol trusty .243 with me, that can sneak a career ending round right to him, from her fence row. She gave the go ahead, though she seemed sceptical about the outcome. I retrieved my Rifle, a Remington 788 with a Bushnell 3x9x40 scope, loaded magazine with 3 rounds of 75 gr Hollowpoints and came back to the fence. June was laughing because she said he must have overheard us and no longer visible. I sat down and whistled two or three pathetic whistles, then I heard June give a crisp clear and loud whistle, and then there he stood up, which was an unfortunate mistake for him. I had a solid rest on the lower portion of the fence post, steadied the crosshairs on his chest and slowly squeezed the trigger. I recognized the thud of the Hollowpoint impact hitting it's intended target, but Aunt June thought I likely had missed him. I unloaded my Rifle and placed it back in my Vehicle. (A maroon 1974 Chevy Nova 4 Door) I walked out into the pasture to the burrow and found the just retired garden menace almost in half. I held him up so June could see him and I left him for the crows to feed on. Once I had climbed back over the fence onto June's lawn, she asked where is he. I said he will be a fat meal for the crows, and she about had a fit, asking me why I wasn't skinning him out and fixing him for dinner. I told her that I had dispatched hundreds of them over the years and never ate a single one. June wasn't having any of that as she went in the house to copy down her Groundhog Receipe and gave it to me. To make a long story short, I took my pocket knife and went back to the pasture and field dressed the critter. I used her hose to rinse him off, placed him in rolled up newspaper and bag, and cooked it later that evening, long and slow according to her recipe in a crockpot. Yes, Aunt June was exactly right, it was very sweet and tender and matched any BBQ Beef that I have ever had. After all, this critter had only eaten the very best vegetables, from Aunt June's Beautiful Garden. Oh what precious memories ... 1 Thessalonians 4:13-18 God's Promises regarding Believers Who Have Died, and passed from Death to Life Eternal. 13 Brothers and sisters, we do not want you to be uninformed about those who sleep in death, so that you do not grieve like the rest of mankind, who have no hope. 14 For we believe that Jesus died and rose again, and so we believe that God will bring with Jesus those who have fallen asleep in him. 15 According to the Lord’s word, we tell you that we who are still alive, who are left until the coming of the Lord, will certainly not precede those who have fallen asleep. 16 For the Lord himself will come down from heaven, with a loud command, with the voice of the archangel and with the trumpet call of God, and the dead in Christ will rise first. 17 After that, we who are still alive and are left will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And so we will be with the Lord forever. 18 Therefore encourage one another with these words. No Jesus .... No Peace Know Jesus .... Know Peace Christ Jesus The Prince of Peace! Our entire Family sends our Heartfelt condolences to ALL Family and Friends of Aunt June and we join in prayerful agreement for God's Blessings, Peace, Comfort and Salvation to ALL whosoever, shall know Jesus as their personal Savior and Lord!!! In The name that Heaven ALWAYS Honors, Jesus Messiah, Savior and Lord ... AMEN!
