Dog Days of Summer

If I was going to pick a month NOT to be in South Georgia, it would be the month of August which is also known as the Dog Days of Summer. I always believed it was called the Dog Days because only a dog could stand this heat, humidity, and gnats. I recently found out that it was named after … Read More

Not My Typical Blog

I have been deeply saddened by the recent events in our country with rioting and looting. I can actually understand wanting to take down Confederate statues. After all, history is written by the winners. I also understand the reasons for peaceful marches to highlight social injustices. What I do not understand is the looting and burning of property by a … Read More

This & That

They say that two things that man can catch up on the quickest are sex and rain. We are about caught up on rain, but we were very grateful to get it as it had gotten quite dry here. I could hardly believe my eyes when my rain gauge totaled 4.4 inches for the last few days. The pines and … Read More

Me and Rebel

Due to Martha’s many doctor’s appointments and trips to Augusta University, which by the way can’t be gotten to from here in less than five hours, I was unable to take my English Cocker, Rebel, into my home as early as I wanted to. Since Martha has gone to be with the Lord, Rebel has now come to my house … Read More

Tornados and Covid-19

Agriculture and timber were deemed essential businesses, but we tried to rotate employees, and keep them spread out. As to the tornado, I wanted to let everyone know that we are fine here. The tornado that formed was big and long lived. It began in Pelham which is our county, and then went on through, Moultrie, Nashville, Adel, and all … Read More

Martha Cox

If you have only been here in the past three years, you may not have known my Martha. If you have been, as so many of our guests, a long-term visitor to Riverview, you would have known my pretty, little brown eyed girl. You can probably close your eyes and see her walking from dining room to dining room with … Read More

Quail Hunting and Hospitals

I have spent 45+ years of my life in the quail hunting business. Due to Martha’s valiant fight with cancer, I have also spent a great deal of time in multiple hospitals in the past year. The one thing that I have quickly learned is that it is much easier to break into a hospital than to break out of … Read More

Cold Weather

Brrr, it is cold outside! I once was told not to knock the weather because without it, 90% of the population would not know how to start a conversation. However, I do believe that one of our Yankee guests left home to visit us without closing the door. We are staring at three days of much below normal temperatures.   … Read More

Perfect Quail Hunting Days

If I had promised a man a pretty day, and he would not accept yesterday or today as a pretty day, I would just have to be inclined to whip his butt. The last two days have been absolutely perfect quail hunting days. Then there is the icing on the cake which is a full moon. When that full moon … Read More

Getting Us Ready to Hunt Turkey At Riverview

Recently, we have been working hard to extend a selection of hunting and outdoor experiences to our clients, with turkey hunting being a main focus, and more to come. … Read More
