    Big derby weekend coming up. For a lot of us this means “Derby parties.” Whether you have a horse to bet on, or just taking an opportunity to hang with some friends, please be safe!
    Along with the parties will be some alcohol consumption by many. I don’t pass judgment, as long as you’re of age. So, all I’ve got to say is if you drink don’t ruin a great time by driving!
    The turkey hunting has been on my back burner for the last week. Meetings, doctor visits and the weather sure cut into my hunting.
