I guess Man is the closest thing we have as a predator Den.
Before the treat of viewing the first 2 hours of Downton Abbey 3 last evening, PBS broadcast "Secrets of Highclere Castle", the setting of the program. That episode was actually the first of a mini-series which will also explore Hampton Court (Henry VIII home castle), the Diana Spencer home, and one other which I can't remember.

Anyway ... on the Highclere Estate (5,000 acres which exceeds Central Park NYC according to the show) is a deer-stalker employed full-time to keep the deer populations of 3 species on the estate under control. As you stated, there is no animal predator there on the estate.

Whether it was for camera or really true, the man out in the dark of the morn on watch and readiness stated that killing them was not taken lightly, and a moment of solemn respectful prayer is due to the loss of life. That seems like that's from the ancient and Celts, as it is with the ancient first peoples here.

For ease of travel, I-65/I-70 for Quinny and I-70 for you is the route connection. Richmond or east edge of Indianapolis (or in between could be a meeting point).
Or an alternate would be US 30 (or 33 where need be) to Fort Wayne-ish. But, that's small towns and traffic lights -- in particular "The Region" as Quinny heads east.
Yeah, Muncie is an option. Right now, I can't commit for a Spring meeting so I have no "favor" for any option.

Just trying to help.

<quoted text>Hope you do, I suggested PM as my e-mail is not functioning,
I am working on it. LOL about the religious set-toos...that
sounds like fun, lol.
I was witness to some shocking things when I was small..just kidding,
but we had a bowl of Holy Water on the hat stand in the hall, my
Uncle would cross himself with it on his way out when he was going
to the 'dogs'(dog racing) for luck..my Grandmother would go mad with him.
I think your Grandpa can be excused drinking, all things considered!...:)
And didn't the Native Americans thank Mother Earth and say a prayer of gratitude to the animal they killed for the meat and hide (?)? Something I've read in many a book written by a Native American.

Our friend does not need any more encouragement Boomer.:-)

<quoted text>Mighty Quinn we will just have to agree to disagree. Grace is consistent in her view point and doesn't set the life of one animal over the life of another animal. To me a deer is the same as a hog and a cow. I am a meat eater
Human beings are also animals, and also meat. You are setting one life above another if you think you have carte blanche to kill any animal just because it provides meat.

Hey Quinn, 90 minutes from Columbus puts us on the other side of Richmond, Indiana. How far is that from you and the mister?
BTW, enjoyed the pic!
TKY! Just an extra.

Richmond would also work. Its over 90 minutes for us but no biggie. Check your map, Oak Forest IL is just off the IL/IN border and its a straight shot down I65 for us.

You bring your cars; I'll bring the dogs a and they can have a hoot n nanny!

Then let's push for two hours. Fort Wayne, Muncie, either is good. We all can find a good spot for lunch.

Pictures?? Just use as 'fits'.

Profiles?? Have 3 total and cross-referenced to some degree. I don't do the "cloak game".

Across A Crowded Room

Slow Hand Luke (Facebook/game profile includes McCoy)-- that's why some call me Luke.

We don't have commitments so timing pretty open for us. I don't mean to be indecisive, just accommodating. It's easier for us with no children-adult or small fry.

I know DW mentioned his daughter's wedding sometime this year so I imagine he's got lots of activities this year.

Up to you if you want to throw out some dates now or wait a while. Indy, Richmond or Shelbyville. Pick what suits you & Brighteyes and next decision is when......
