The Check Is In The Mail...

...and on its way to the taxidermist in Eustis, Maine. After just over a year, the taxidermist shop called us to let us know that the rug and skull mount from the bear that Brendan shot last year (on his first ever big game trip) was ready to be shipped to us. With me having been ill for a while, and also with me being the great procrastinator, it took about another few weeks before I got the check in the mail; but I did get that done today. I am anxious to see the finished product, something I hope will have been prepared well enough to last a lifetime or longer, it sure costs enough. I think though the cost will have been well worth it, what with all the good memories that the rug will invoke over the years to come.

Once we get it, we will post pics of it.

All the best,
Glenn B

so are you giving the bear skin rug to Brendan for Christmas??

Heck no, it is his as soon as it gets here. He shot the bear, and he even paid for half of the cost of the rug. Now you may wonder, did that surprise me? A bit, but not much, he is good that way.
