    Texans definitely know how to cook a brisket. Hate to say it but the absolute best I've ever eaten, including my own, was in Tulsa Ok lol. Mine came out pretty good. Slow smoked for about 8 hrs using a mixture of Red Oak and Hickory.

    Lolz. Wish everybody that wanted some could have had some. Guess I'd best go scrub up for dinner. Leftovers. Drive careful, it's amateur weekend on the roads around here.

    Tutoring report.

    I started with the boy this time. He was expecting friends to visit, and he wanted to finish so he could play with them.

    He did some worksheets, then read about Harry Houdini. He was fascinated, as I expected he'd be.

    Then the girl. Worksheets, as usual. We are working to understand past, present, and future tenses. She's starting to get it. But she referred to something of her brother's as hers, so back to a sheet on his, hers, and its. Then she read from a Fly Guy book. This is a very simple series of stories about a boy with a pet fly.

    When I was leaving, the kids' mom introduced me to her friend, whose sons were there to play with the kids. This new mom wants me to tutor her boys, too. They have spent the last few years in China, so they are way behind in their English reading. She said the younger, who's 10, was reading at first grade level, and the older one, 13, is reading at about 3rd grade level. I think the new family is just here for the summer, so this won't be a permanent thing. I hope I can make a significant difference in such a short time.

    Discovered an intruder in the back yard this morning - thought I'd share:



    Oh, the only time his tail went up was to flick a bug or three, but his ears never left me.....



    This is in Huntsville Ontario, not my normal realm.

    It's so neat to see deer! What are the bare patches on him all about, I wonder? Are you on vacation in Ontario?

    I've wondered about the bare patches too. Kinda looks like mange but I'm more inclined to think it has something to do with summer starting comparatively late. Of course, it could just be the result of rubbing against trees to itch the mosquito bites (they're rather large and ferocious up here).

    For the past couple of years, I've come up here late in the spring to visit my parents. They tend to be a bit older than me (a personal choice, I suspect), so I guess you might say that they're a bit long in the tooth. I get to spoil them for a few weeks and then I go home, leaving them with a hole in their life - it's my way of getting even for being forced to be their kid for all those years.

    The deer was a fawn a few years ago and it used to come and eat all of the flowers in the front garden. Mom wasn't pleased. Now, apparently, he's content to eat the leaves off of the trees. I wonder if his patchiness has to do with his diet. Still, I have to appreciate his way of viewing me - he'd turn his back on me quite carelessly and the only thing that showed that he was still paying attention was the tilt of his ears. They always faced me. He knew I wasn't a threat but he's not crazy enough to trust me completely....

    Very cool and nice shots. Every time I see a deer it's like the first time. I get all excited and want to get a pic. Nice to see you posting.
