  1. Got off the boat today, duck huntin in the morning. Life is good
  2. North Fl, I would recommend pretty much anywhere north of the beach towns is nice, close enough to go to the beach on a whim and far enough you aren’t right in the tourist trap area. If you want to live on the coast, I’d look around Apalachicola, East Point, Carrabelle, Pannacea,
  3. Nah, I don’t care. I live in Covington county. Promise, you couldn’t find my house on purpose. You might get lost and stumble across it, but it’d be pure luck
  4. For the weather and price you are lookin for I’d look around South Al, Ga, Ms, or North Fl. We have a few cold days come winter, maybe 4-5 days highs in the mid 30’s, most of the time in the winter you are looking at mid 50’s up to mid 70’s. Me personally I wouldn’t do the big towns, strange folks live there. Yea we get some hurricanes, I live about 80 miles from the coast, worst I’ve seen was several years ago one came in as a Cat 4, we lost power for a couple days then everything went back to normal. If however you do move to the South, there are some things you’ll have to get used to. 1) We talk to everybody at the store 2) sweet tea is served for all meals and snacks 3) Y’all is both singular and plural 4) life moves a little slower down here 5) our accents, you can tell what state or even what part of the state they are from by their accent. 6) past times, in order- huntin, fishin, football (not soccer), goin to church, goin to The Walmart, 7) our words, example Fixinto- that don’t mean we are going to fix something, that means we are about to. Example- I’m Fixin to go to the Store 8) Drinks- the cold, carbonated deliciousness we all love, is called a Coke, don’t matter what kind it actually is, example- you go to the store, somebody asks you if you want a Coke, you say yes then they ask what kind. 9) Gas station food is unbelievable!!! Nothin better than a bacon egg and cheese biscuit from the store for breakfast, Hunt Brothers pizza for dinner or supper or some fried chicken. 10) Our meals, y’all may call them Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner. Down here they are called Breakfast, Dinner and Supper. 11) the “G” in ING is silent. It’s pronounced, riddin, drivin, singgin, etc. 12) If you get stuck in the mud/snow (on the 2 days a year it might actually snow) don’t worry, somebody will be along here directly with a tow strap in their truck and they’ll pull you out.
  5. Harvest was good. Corn cut 200/bbl/acer, rice avg cutting 160/bushel/ acer, beans cut 40/bushel/ acer
  6. Made my decision, submitted paperwork to apply to test for my big license. Hopefully test in late March / Early April.
  7. Yea I figure why not. Go take a gander, don’t like what I see don’t go back
  8. Nope still out here like always. And you know what they say about the best way to get over one right?
  9. Don’t know even if it’s not I’m not going to stress it
  10. It’s nice right now, seas are running 3-5’ we are heading southeast on a course of about 125. But come Wednesday it’s going to go to crap again. Yet another cotton pickin hurricane. Done rode out 3 this year, may as well make it 4.
  11. My son has been going to the biggest church in our county. Last time I was off I just spouted off a smart remark about him finding me a singles group. Wasn’t even serious at all. Little turd shoots me a message last week sayin yea they have one I’m going to get you some information I really think you need to go. I swear between him and my dad they’d marry me off to about any woman that’ll look twice at me. Seein as he put forth the effort to find one, reckon I’ll go check it out.
  12. Well ain’t this just a thread full of awesomeness!! Glad to see it on here and lots of folks in it that have been on here a while. Lemme see, my son is doing great in college, work is steady, few more classes for me and I’ll be upgrading my captains license again, bigger boat = more money. I’m buyin me a new double wide after the first of the year prolly a 32x80 3-4 bed / 2-3 bath. Not sure what I’m going to do with all that room but it’ll be nice to have. If 4 bed 1 room will be used for hanging waders and decoys, another room for my guns, bows, fishin rods, huntin clothes and trail cams. Coal dog is doing good, just pure spoiled rotten. Early teal season was epic!!! Had 4 good days of huntin before a front rolled in killed 112. Deer season opens this weekend, good thing bc I’ve been out of ground meat since July and sausage since May so it’s time to break out the grinder, mixer and smoker and restock the deep freeze. Oh and that boy of mine has decided I need a wife so has found me a singles group at his church. Smh!!
  13. Yea so I went on a date. Great idea right? And I liked the lady. One big problem, actually several big problems. 1) I almost called her your name on more than one occasion 2) I like her but liking someone means letting yourself have feelings, letting yourself have feelings means opening yourself up for possible heart ache again. I’m not over you, it still hurts. Badly. Like I said last time I posted in this thread, everybody has that one person you never get over. For me you are that one person. I love you
  14. Well it hit home today, my sons step dad has the Covid, my son is getting tested tommorow
  15. Been helping a buddy of mine get a crop put in on my off time. So far we’ve got 2000acers of rice, 1000 of corn, 500 of Milo and working on our last 1500 of soybeans. Good times, long days and plenty of good hard work.
  16. Can’t complain, got off the boat Friday, got up Saturday morning, planted my dove field, about 6-7 acers of brown top millet, talked to the core group from my old deer lease and made plans to all get together for a dove shoot in September kind of a memorial hunt for a good friend of ours that passed away last month. After that got my camper set up at the lake, then to end the day me and Thomas threw some steaks on the grill. Went to sleep with a lab laying on my feet. It was a great day
  17. I’ll tell you like I told my ex one time while we were kinda together and kinda broke off. If somebody breaks in don’t worry about the stuff just spray and pray. Wall and stuff can be rebuilt, can’t rebuild you.
  18. Hang tight and stay locked and locked and loaded
  19. Hope y’all all come through it with shinin colors
  20. Honestly I don’t see a reason to stress out about it. Survival rate is 98%, lots of folks had it way before the media got a hold of it and blew it way out of proportion. If you are going to get it you are going to get it, sure you can do common sense things like use hand sanitizer etc but you do that to avoid catching cold or flu or pretty much anything else.
  21. Dude I’ve had a flipping blast during this meltdown. I got off the boat March 8th for what I thought was my regular 14 days off, two days later got an email saying I’d be off for 30. Called the personell manager just to make sure I was reading it right, that I was getting 30 days off during turkey season. When he confirmed that I just about jumped out of my truck I was so happy. Went and bought a 10lb roll of ground meat and some other stuff plus 3 24 packs of MT Dew, and 4 3lb bags of Reese’s went me butt home and had a blast. My day consisted of getting up at 4:30, let Coal out, get a shower, cook breakfast for us, let Coal back in, go turkey huntin till 10 or so, come in, cook lunch for Me, Thomas and Coal, Thomas would come up about 11:15 eat lunch hang out, then go back to work, then I’d either go back turkey huntin or go fishin until about dark, come in cook supper, shower, watch TV and crash about 9:30-10:00. Came back to work April 10, stayed until April 16, got laid off, went to Kentucky, turkey hunted a few days then went to Arkansas and helped a good friend of mine get his crops planted. Then the company I work for called me back.
  22. It’s amazing how one like from you on an Instagram post can ruin my day. I dream about you most every night. Haven’t seen you since January but I miss you every day. I guess there’s that one person you never get over and I reckon you are that one for me. I loved you then, I love you now, I love you for always. I miss my family.
