  Well, I finally got my gobbler.  Oh, it was not easy; mine never are.  I always seem to have to pay my dues with blood, sweat, tears and a whole lot of pride swallowing.  It all began last week as I took a few days off for my birthday and to turkey hunt.  I finally got on a good gobbling bird, maybe two.  ...

    As I write this article, it is raining cats and dogs.  It kind of reminds me of the wet springs we had when I was a child. My mother always said if I lived in a desert and if there was a thimble of water around, I would find it and make a mess.  I was just fascinated with water and apparently messed up a lot of...

  On March 12, 2014, a local father and son team doubled on Osceola long beards in Fla.  A couple of weeks ago, Steve Rawson called me to tell of an adventure that he and his son Landon had completed.  I was coming back from a three-day in-service training in Greenwood and also had to go to Ga. for a funeral that weekend.  ...

  The other day before turkey season opened I received several texts from my son such as, “Daddy, you need to get in there early before anyone else.  You need to be dedicated like you used to be.  Have you patterned your shotgun yet? Have you been listening?” I finally texted back, “Boy, you ain’t my...

  Miranda Lambert of country music fame has a new hit out called “Before Automatic.”  I thought it would be a good topic to write about this week because it fits what I had in mind.  Before I get into the meat of the story, I would like to touch on a couple of things.   I went to the local chapter of the...

  Well, the large lady has sung and deer season for our area is over. I can’t complain since I have had a good season, even though I was kind of a late bloomer with a couple of nice bucks towards the end. I did get a couple of fat does early on.  I did not beat my twin boys as they both got trophy bucks, but if I put all the...

  I once had a person say that calling my wife “woman” was degrading or derogatory.  I certainly do not mean it that way nor do I think the aforementioned is a definition in any way, shape, form or fashion in what I mean when I call my wife “woman.”  The good Lord sent me this good woman thirty some odd...

  I thought I would write this week about some great hunting dogs I have owned, been around or hunted behind.  Before I get to the meat of the story, I thought I would touch a little on my last story in a big way.  My son Jason received a call the other night from a lady who is kin to the gentleman I mentioned last week.  ...

  I told my wife last night that I have no earthly idea what I am going to write about this week. That might be the key - earthly.  I like to think that the good Lord inspires my articles.  They may be about "earthly" things, places or people, but the inspiration always seems to come from a higher being.  This...
