October Is Coming!

Even though I am not actively involved with the management of Riverview anymore, I enjoy coming to work for a half day each day. Since Cader IV’s office is right across the hall from me and he has a booming voice, I am able to pick up on a lot of what is going on these days. We have started running our dogs to get them in shape. None of our dogs or guides have Covid 19, and everyone is excited over the fact that the unrelenting heat of the summer is about to be gone.


We have two cold fronts coming to us back to back. These fronts are going to plummet our lows into the low 50’s and our highs into the low 70’s. Everyone here has a little more pep in their steps.


Another sign of fall is that our kitchen and housekeeping staff have reported for duty. They will be spending the next two weeks doing a deep clean of all of our cottages and the main Lodge. I also noticed that all of the men have begun pruning, weed eating, and manicuring the Lodge grounds. Cader IV told me that we will begin planting our winter grass around the cottages on Monday, and we have already planted the Lodge roadsides with winter grass.


There is so much doom and gloom out there that I thought that I would share some of the funniest things that I have read lately. Sadly, there is more truth than poetry in these one-liners, at least as they apply to me.


• Age 60 might be the new 40, but 9:00PM is the new midnight.
• I remember being able to get up without the sound effects.
• Remember if you lose a sock in the dryer, it comes back as a Tupperware lid that doesn’t fit any of your containers.
• I finally got 8 hours of sleep, but it took me three days.
• I don’t mean to interrupt people, but I just randomly remember things, and get really excited.


Speaking of excitement, we are all excited to begin our 63rd hunting season and look forward to visiting with y’all again soon.
