Happy New Year.  The year 2021 was full of challenges.  We should take a moment to remember those we have lost, celebrate the new friends we have met and take stock of what we have learned.  

The New Year, 2022, will also be full of challenges, new friends and new opportunities to learn.  Let's all make the best of them.

Reports on the Illinois deer harvest show a 12% drop in the number of deer taken so far.  There is an antlerless season in January but the major numbers are in and shouldn’t affect the totals too much.  So far in 2021, a total of 71,675 deer have been harvested.  In 2020, the total was 77,160.  In 82 of the 100 counties where deer are hunted, it shows a drop in numbers.  Randolph County led the way in number of deer taken with 2,162, and Adams County following with 2,042.  Pike County slipped to seventh this year.  A warm second season and a full moon aided in keeping the numbers down.

Christmas is on our doorstep and with memories of Christmases past.  To say that Christmas was a big deal at the Pearson house would be an understatement.  Both my mother and father were into Christmas as far as a person could get.  Decorating for Christmas was the highlight of the year.  On Thanksgiving weekend all the Christmas decorating and lights had to be done and ready to turn on the day after Thanksgiving.  If that didn’t happen, I’m sure something cataclysmic would have occurred.  Fortunately, it never happened.  On the nice days of November, my dad would be stringing lights on the peak of the house and on every gable.  Boxes of decorations were dragged out of closets, staged and ready to go.  We lived on a corner and the windows facing the street were outlined in lights and those that did not have lights had an electric candle in each window.  Then there was the Christmas tree.  That was always dad’s job.  It could not have any bare spots in it, if at all possible.  If it did, the tree was carefully positioned to hide that spot from anyone looking at it through the living room window.  The Christmas tree was the center of it all.  It filled the living room.  The furniture had to be moved around to accommodate the tree and still be able to watch television.  When we started to decorate the tree, it was a project, a labor of love but a project nevertheless.  The rules were roughly, put on all the lights that you possibly could, add ornaments on all possible branches and then tinsel.  The biggest job was the tinsel.  Each piece had to be placed on the tree one by one.  None of this throwing stuff, that was a sacrilege.  If you have ever seen the tree in the movie “The Bishop’s Wife”, you would see our tree.

The Mayors Against Illegal Guns seems to remain clueless about what causes the major increase in the murder rate in America's largest cities.  These people cannot seem to grasp the idea that if you don't punish criminals, let criminals out of jail and let murderer's walk out of jail with small bonds or no bond at all, the murder rate will increase.  Dumb as a box of rocks is the phrase that comes to mind, or are they?  The Mayors Against Illegal Guns is a cover.  I believe their aim is your guns and my guns.  I believe their real goal is to make the uninformed ones believe that all guns are the problem.  When criminals are stopped by law-abiding citizens defending themselves, the media doesn't cover it or if they do, the story disappears in a matter of hours.  Thieves are getting bolder and bolder.  In Chicago, Joe Perillo who owns Gold Coast Exotic Motor Cars, stated that criminals made off with $2,000,000 worth of watches.  Some of those people who live on the Gold Coast believe crime won't affect them.  Of course, they have armed security in their Gold Coast high rises.  This might be a wakeup call to them, eh maybe, possibly, ok, maybe not.

Sunday morning, I was sitting in my mother-in-law’s kitchen gazing out the patio doors at the huge hard maple tree that dominates her back yard.  There were only two leaves still hanging on the tree.  A few minutes later a cold December rain began pattering against the doors and windows and the last two leaves that were on the maple tree floated to their final resting place on the ground.  Mother Nature had officially informed me that Fall was over and winter was on its way.
