Thought I'd Say Howdy.

Postby Cappy_TX » Sat Oct 08, 2005 5:18 pm

I've been known for a few years in the cyberworld as Nevada Jim. I'm 63 years old and have raised, trained and loved gun dawgs for almost 50 years. My first 6 were pointing breeds, dawgs # 7 & 8 are Yellow Labs.

My wife Carol is a duck and upland hunter, and loves training the dawgs.
We retired to N TX where we built a home on 132 acres and put in 5 dawg training - duck shooting ponds.

Cappy is a 6-1/2 year old male and the apple of his Daddy's eye. Not only the best overall gun dawg I've ever owned, obviously a best buddy too. Image

Remi is our yellow female that just turned a year old. Here she is on her first live mallard retrieve ... Image
Cappy and Remi aren't my whole life, they just made my life whole.

Yeah KC ... That was one of the FEW benefits my old job had before retiring. The boss was really cheap. I often didn't get paid. In addition to working 60 hours a week or more in the office, I also had to play janitor and a host of other unpaid positions.

If I could say anything nice about the boss at all, I guess his good part was he let my wife work there too, I was allowed to dress very casually, bring my dawgs into the office, and he let my wife and me take time off together almost every Friday during season for a long duck hunting weekend.

Here's a pic of Carol on a Friday morning "work day" last november ... Image

Oppps, I almost forgot ... I owned the company. :laughing:

I would like to start my own company also, but I would probably work to much to get a chance to go hunting. That is why I am waiting till spring to open it.
