Ah yes, leeks. Nature's laxative, along with sauerkraut and fresh sweet corn.

How's it going John?

If I was any better I would be dangerous :wink:

Business is slow but getting better, good enough there is tanqueray in my tonic now rather than gordons, hired a man on.....we'll see how long it lasts.

Jr. and my turkey season starts tommorrow, have had tom's at three different properties we can hunt and in the last week they have all disapeared, still lots of horny jakes running around, jr. may try one of them with his bow.

Have been out jacklighting a bit already, real early spring here, preacher thinks he can out bowfish jr......he just might, those trips out on the lake till 3 in the morning seem to take a bit more of a toll than they used to :help:

How's things out there? My buddy out there got his certs for cropdusting but ran out of work, went to a trruck driving school and got his cdl license all the way through hazardous and got fired a week into his first job, can't get hired with a termination on his record, now he's trying to get on the fire dept......we'll see, he's dumb as a box of rocks at times but an extremely dedicated worker with a good dose of common sense, I think fire fighter might be right up his alley

Got your garden in?

Things are ok here. Got some garden in but not pushing it, I seem to be losing interest in it after, oh, 50 years of it. I haven't been out tick collecting, I mean turkey hunting, yet. It started a couple weeks ago and I've was away the first two weekends and busy yesterday. Not really enough into it to take off work. I did buy a neat new hawk call I've been using to mess with the birds and squirrels at the feeders.

Oh it's not too bad. You'll catch up. Me saying that about gardening got me thinking that it has been that long, actually a bit longer, since I remember being about 3 and helping my dad put in a garden and feeding the turkeys we raised, along with going with him to test milk at the dairy farms. Oh, and something I think would be called road hunting today. I just know the Winchester went everywhere. He's been dead 50 years last month and I was 6 when that happened.
