Off They Go!

Well, it’s time for the annual hike/camp-out male bonding extraordinaire.

They’re all packed up and ready to go!  A weekend of hiking, fishing, kungfu fighting, sleepin’ out under the stars…campfires, funny stories, smelly socks galore…what more could a guy ask for?  Here are my cute little whippersnappers…

I send them off – sweet, innocent little lads; and after a weekend testosterone injection of being solely in the company of their father, uncles, grand-dad, and cousins – they come back to me a tad more in tune with nature, and their manhood.  It’ll take me a whole year to get that gruntin’ and scratchin’ and snorting out of their systems… then I’ll turn around in time to send them out again!  The male species – such a wonder to behold!  I just love it!



  1. Miss them already!!!
