Ever wonder why goofballs walk this earth? You know them, not a serious thought in their head for more than 58 seconds at a time. They believe that life is a playground, and they need to enjoy each and every ride that exists. And taking on a serious role, where they have to act the part of the heavy? “Not happening, dude! That’s not the way I roll!” But we absolutely love having them in our lives, anyway. They have the ability to bring light and laughter wherever they go.

Is everybody up for the first game?

The weatherman forecasted a decent chance of rain last week several days in advance and upon hearing the good news, I began making plans. I’ve got a corn feeder located close to a remote pond and my trail camera had evidenced the coming and going of several ‘eater’ size hogs for the past month. By the look at the pictures, it was clear they came as much for the water as they did the corn my feeder disturbed daily about sunset, they were usually wet from their ‘dips’ in the pond. Wild animals have the innate ability to survive and without sweat glands to help keep them cool, wild hogs naturally gravitate to water when it’s hot and dry. My supply of spicy breakfast sausage was in short supply and the stage seemed set for a hog hunt that was long overdue!
