Daisycutter is back

Good to see you're still knocking them down. Nice kill with the 1911. I've only gone hog hunting once and it was a bust. We heard them, but never saw them.

I'm going thru a move right now, so I'm going to have to find all new places to hunt. I can still go to my folks for deer and turkey, but they will now be out of state for me.

Anyway, it's good to see you back.

a hard to sell location and the neighbor has been wiping out trees bordering my property, looks like a war zone. I could be stuck here for a long time.
There's a small herd of hogs in the hollows here, loggers have disturbed them so I may not be seeing anymore unless I head out some distance. Haven't popped armadillos with my Sig .380 in several months. At least the deer are hanging around, for now.
Thanks for the welcome, good to 'see' you.

Yep

The last 2 months have been crazy. The first part of May, my father in law had a brain aneurysm and we almost lost him. The next week I find out that I have barrets esophagus and then have surgery the 3rd week of May. The week before my surgery, I get offered a promotion to director of purchasing for my company. I accepted and the Monday after surgery, I was in my new office right there in Bentonville. So for the last 4 weeks I've been living in a hotel and coming home on the weekends. We should close on the new house middle of July. We liked Bella Vista, so that's where we're going. Seems like a nice place, but the roads are confusing.

When I was looking at houses and thought of you. If I remember, you live to west of bentonville. Nice area, but we wanted to stay closer to the east and north for our families to have less travel. I'm looking forward to getting out in the woods down there. Nice to know that there will be some good folk around when we get all moved.

Will talk more later, got to go help feed the kids.

I hope you recover quickly with very little pain.

Still not having any interested shoppers looking at my house and if there were any they'd see the 'hell on earth' scene from the loggers across the road from my house. If that one real estate shopper that does not care that the property across the road looks like a WW2 battlefield comes through I'll be on my way to sunny Florida. Not holding my breath.
So, been out to the lease lately?

TG, tell me more

For now I'm not expecting this house to sell before winter, if that is the case I would want a short term rental, probably four months.
After winter and when this place sells I'd be back to looking for a house to buy so what do you have?
I've been considering Tampa and Coral Gables but Pensacola is not out of the question.

Warm, Daisy?

It's going to be Texas hot! But, gotta do it. Been a bit since I pulled my weight out there. Time to Git-r-done.
The rancher hired some "exterminators" on helicopters to thin out the pig and coyote, but the pigs are making a comeback already. I think Jason might be able to do a little hunting this go around. :) I agree. Video games, thpppt.

I always have a hard time deciding which is better. Blazing Saddles or Young Frankenstein.

May favorite quote from the movie:

"They said you was hung"

"And they was right!"

the epitome of comic movies, everything in it was funny, " It's twoo, it's twoo" .
Brooks was married to Anne Bancroft. I don't think any other actress could have
done what she did for "The Graduate", damn, that woman was HAWT, and pathetic.

estate for about 30 years, lots of buying, fixing up and renting out and selling. I don't want to pick up a hammer, just sit back and enjoy NO snow and ice.
I have friends in Coral Gables who were my neighbors in Arkansas 20 years ago, they talked me into trying Florida.
I did work in Winter Haven a few years ago roofing houses that had hurricane damage. I liked it there.
