  • Hunting is over; time to fish

    O.K., here it is! Hunting, except for coyotes, is over till April and the wild turkey season.
    What we're looking at now is fishing and getting ready to go fishing. Part of that "getting' ready" is practicing our casting, flippin' and pitchin'.
    And what better way to show how good you are than to engage in some friendly competition!
    To that end I have developed a pitchin'/flippin' game to test our skills. This venue will make its debut April 14 and 15.

  • It's that time of year

    Well, the calendar just flipped another page into the month of March. Where does the time go? I remember when I was in school, people would tell me that time seems to pass by faster as you get older. At the time I thought they were just saying that, but now I am beginning to see that they were right.
