Well, those times work inversely with blogging. When you have lay-low times in life, you write big-bad, thick, hearty blog posts. When you are running around with your tail taped on, you write small easy posts.
Well, I have been running hard lately, so it's officially time for a nice laid back post.
I decided to do a post on the things that really just make my day a good day. Those things that I really look forward to. The things that if I had the chance, would do a lot more of, or the things in every day life I really enjoy. I am pretty easy to please, and the things I enjoy aren't an exception.
No particular order. :)
Boy-Oh-Boy do I love to shoot. Any weapon, any caliber, any target. I prefer my handgun or a fined tuned rifle with good sights or a good scope. Love lever actions, love a good scoped hunting rifle. Just something about putting that hole where you want it......
|My .40 Springfield. Daily-carry weapon of choice.|
Oh Golly, love to fish. I haven't fished but once this year, and let me tell you, it's been hard. Times are hard, budgets are tight, and fishing is one of those things that goes by the wayside for the things that matter more. Loving wading in up to my waist and just casting by a brush snag waiting for something......
~ Hangin out with friends......
~ Being goofy with friends...
Oh yeah, love hunting. This will be my fifth bird season I believe, and I will be officially going on my first deer hunt in October. Pray hard for that! Anything I can hunt, I do and I enjoy. I love game meat.
|This past year was the first year I was ever able to get my limit bird hunting.|
My big 'ole fluffy dog. Dixie. Such a goofy, fluffy, happy, dingy, loopy, lovely dog. Always look forward to seeing her going back to the barn.
Tall glasses of sweet tea.
Homemade, with honey please.
~ Playing in the waves.
Didn't think of me as much of a beach-boy did ya? Oh man, I love the beach, boogie-boardin, the surf...... I would love to learn to surf one day.
~ Swimming in lakes.
I've swam in pools a heap, and it really doesn't turn me on. Far too tame. In a rocky lake with steep rocky cliff sides and no bottom four feet away from shore? Now were talkin. Heaps more adventurous and.... scary, honestly.
|Me havin a ball at the Blue Ridge Resevoir this past June.|
~ Road trips.
Gotta love road trips. All the gear stuffed in the back, driving for hours past new scenery headed someplace exciting. In the past few years, I have been to Colorado twice, been to Oregon once, to California once, and I am headed back to Colorado mid September.
~ People talkin' southern,
~ Good firm handshakes,
Last but not least......
~ Southern food - mashed puhtayta's, fried chicken, fried okra, dumplins, gravy....... oh boy, I had better stop now before I start droolin...
Well folks, that's about all I can think of now. Just a few things that really make me smile. How 'bout you?
