How Sweet It Is!

Wow! What a phenomenal week we have enjoyed. My beloved DAWGS waxed the hated Gators butts, and The Braves are up 3-2 in the World Series. But WAY, more importantly, we are beginning our 5th week of hunting season, and we are so far ahead of last year’s pandemic season that we can’t even see it in our rearview mirror. The weather, guides, dogs, and guests couldn’t be happier. Well, the quail may not be so delighted.


Uh, but we do have a problem. If you have been trying to call for the last week, please know that we are still here and doing great. If you need to get in touch with us about reservations or your schedule, please email Cader IV at: [email protected]. Our phones have been out for a week, and we are having no luck with AT&T repair in India. These folks are very difficult for our southern ears to understand. Furthermore, they probably have no idea what state or even country we are located in. I remember the good old days when I could call someone whom I knew in Camilla, and tell him that I thought that the problem was at the old oak tree near Highway 311. Alas, that seems to be ancient history. If any of you know anyone higher up in AT&T, please let me know, and forward this blog to them.


Well, that is quite enough whining. Our first-year guides and dogs have been outstanding, and our phones were ringing for reservations until they stopped working. We have had some of the most delightful October hunting weather in my memory as well as the number of guests who have visited us during October. Jerry Cooper is smiling and humming which is always a good barometer for me as to how hunting season is going.


As I always attempt to do, please allow me to share a few humorous thoughts in closing that come from my strange mind or the Internet:

  1. This one is for Cader IV. When I say “ the other day”, I could be referencing anytime between yesterday and 15 years ago.
  2. I just had my patience tested by AT&T. It came back negative.
  3. I am convinced that the dance, “The Hokey Pokey” was invented by an old man. It sounds like what I go through each morning when I attempt to put my pants on. I stick my left foot in, I pull my left foot out, I do the Hokey Pokey, and I turn all about. Finally, I lean up against my bathroom counter, and achieve success!


Take care, and God bless y’all!
