    Why are they going to be foaming? LOL ??? Depending on what Tom wants to do, I don't think you or anyone else will be foaming unless Andy really brings a big ass tortoise.... LOL

    Did I mention it's nice and cool tonight and I am hunting in the morning! ;D

    I don't believe that for a minute- you work harder than lots of guys & they don't hurt!! Tommy's stank socks will do though- you prolly use some froofroo girlie spray in your shoes so we only THINK you don't sweat.

    Sarahdj when does your dad start booking bear hunts? does he have a brochure you can mail so I can show my hunting buddies? Can I bring a fifty cent size painted turtle maybe I can keep up with Harley then.

    If my back don't get better soon, you could do a bus load of turtles and finish before me , It's been out going on 2 weeks and the way I've been hobbling around I make Dan look like an olympic runner. This one is freaking me out, because I did nothing really to put it out and it normally only lasts a couple of days when it does go out.

    Dan I don't know how you do it brother

    Dad books them all year starting at the end of the season, which was mid-October. He isn't by any means filled up yet, but there is a group of guys that wants to come together one week and they would fill it up. So- if you would want opening week (that's when my husband & I go) you might want to give him a ring. Shoot me your address & I'll send you a flyer. I keep them here in the shop. Applications are done over the internet in the spring & he will shoot you a reminder call once you get "on the list." Applying is free- you don't pay unless you get drawn. Cool!! Hope you come!!!

    On that note I have a story for you. A TRUE story at that. Many years ago I was racing stock cars. Long story short, I got hit from behind one night and it ended my racing forever. Snapped something in my back and lived with the pain for nearly 15 years. when I had my heart attack and opened my chest up they popped my back into place. Felt like a new man. Wear and tear on my body and I have this pinch in my left shoulder that I've been getting cortisone shots in for years just to be able to move my arm. 3 days ago I was at the winery helping my buddy. Some posts got thrown into a rolloff dumpster that he didn't want to throw away. He was using the backhoe and I was on the ground directing his moves for the bucket. A big piece of a aluminum that weighed around 100 lbs came out in the bucket and was on the ground. I grabbed it and went to fling it back up into the dumpster. When I got almost full swing my shoulder popped so hard. I swear I felt everything rip inside and immediately headed for my truck. I was done and in so much pain I didn't want Steve to know how much pain I was in. I literally could not lift my arm. All that night I kept a heating pad on it. The next day I was sore as hell. By day two I had almost no pain. Today I feel no pain and can move my shoulder and arm better than I have been able to in years. Sometimes I think we need readjusted. Maybe go tackle a bull and fight him to the ground. You will probably pop that back right back into place. Dan just needs to go stand in front of a train. I swear it will straight him right back up. ;)
