I'm at Kurt and May's place. They've reinforced their fence and added slats to keep prying eyes--dead or alive--from seeing people inside.

I brought a shotgun and shells for Kurt. Like me, he'll have a back-up weapon--his antique Civil War cavalry sabre--in case we see zombies.

We've already bagged two pheasants. There were five on the side of the road. They slunk into brush as we approached and stood still, hiding.

They probably thought we were zombies and didn't want to fly off unless they had to. The dead catch animal prey by wearing them out.

Yesterday, I thought the birds' behavior might be changing. We're definitely seeing a pattern. Anyway, the tactic doesn't help against guns.

We got six pheasants in total. To help the population rebuild, we didn't shoot any females. We'll clean them at Kurt and May's place.

Kurt caught on fast. I suppose all our time together patrolling for zombies made communication easier for us. #zombie #zombies #zompocalypse

We made a pheasant stew using some of last year's preserved veggies and potatoes. Kurt and May peppered me with questions while we worked.

They wanted to know everything that happened during my diplomatic mission. I didn't hold back when talking about my failures. #zompocalypse

It felt good, talking it out with them. They're so young. Still teens! They see things differently. This world will be theirs to rebuild.

I didn't tell them about my "retirement" discussion with Pete.
