Cat Karma: A Dancing Rabbit Update

The other night, Highway MM from Rutledge to Memphis and back was two very different experiences. On my way, in the partial light and drizzle, it was a beautiful country drive: hills and curves and cows. I love these kinds of drives. I used to have to leave the city to take a country detour like this. […]

My trail cameras are not showing me anything that I want to hunt right now, so I’m waiting on getting into the woods. My goal every year is not to get tired, burnt out, or behind, before the best days of deer hunting get here. For me, those days begin about November 1st and run […]

Stay on the Porch

For the most part, I’ve never been afraid of dogs. There’s only been two times I’ve gotten bit, both by Chihuahuas. I think they both had some type of little-dog complex. But since deer hunters consistently go to and from their tree stand in the dark; if the neighbor or the local farmer has a […]

What Jesus Brings to the Table 

Written on September 4, 2018 at 3:01 pm, by

Fundamentally, basically, and quite-a-bitly, the world is either engaged in or sick of religion.  God didn’t come via His Son that we might have abundant religion.  Rather, Jesus came that we all might experience abundant life.  Yay Jesus!  And yay for us! The religious world has bought into two grand mistakes; attendance and doctrine.  Don’t […]
