what you wish for//and what you get

Today was my first day waking up at the ranch by myself. Plumbing and heating still not working. Scheduled to get a roommate but have not yet. Just me and Lovely Rita here. trying to prevent her from drooling on my key board at this moment.

Pretty relaxing day, went into town and picked up some local micro brews and took a hike along the hill behind the ranch. Felt completely winded and not adjusted to this 7thousand foot plus region quite yet. but it was good to go anyway. After finally dragging my sea level body up to the top of the mountain we were rudely welcomed by a very upset grouse. With no manners what so ever the grouse proceeded to nip at our feet, untie our shoes, and smack us with some sort of evolved wing flap thing. They said it was a sage grouse, I am not convinced, and after doing some of my own research am leaning possibly to the ruffed grouse. I didnt have my camera, so there is no telling!

After twenty minutes or so of this uninterrupted rude behavior from the grouse, i deterred the wild beast by chucking snow balls at him until he retreated to the brush. Who would have guessed that would be the perfect solution.

Later went to dinner where i managed to sneak another meal in without anyone having to find out i’m a vegetarian… so far does not seem to be accepted practice.
