I’ve always prided myself on trying anything once. Now that doesn’t mean that I throw all caution to the wind and do things like swim with alligators, but generally I’m game for giving something a first shot. This especially goes for food unless its worms, bugs, and slugs.  That’s where I dr…

I've recently started learning how to play the bass guitar.  It's always been a dream of mine to be able to play music. I can remember back in my younger days I bought an electric guitar and had high aspirations of learning to play it.  I guess the visions of me standing in front of a sold o…

 I think most people would agree that this world is a mess. In the Message Bible I can’t remember where but it says Jesus came into our mess. And in the back of Psalms 107:11-12 the Passion Translation, we read “For we rebelled against God’s word (let me interject something here, it seems th…

I’m getting a little excited about the upcoming deer season. After last year, I feel like I need to redeem myself. My friends are going to take my hunter card if I don’t get in the woods more. So, I’m making plans now. I’m looking forward to being perched above my day to day life, with thoug…

We are quickly coming to everyone’s favorite time of year. The signs of summer’s close and the start of school, Labor Day, and another hunting season. Autumn in most states brings cool mornings and warm evenings. It’s the days that country folks enjoy the screen door and open windows. The ai…

Hunting season is upon us again. In my home state of Tennessee, squirrel season opens at the end of August and dove season on the first day of September. This is a great time to introduce young and new hunters to the shooting sports. Many times, deer season comes and goes without a single sh…

We sure have been blessed with several days of pretty weather.  We had a really nice day Sunday.  Dale, Shaleena, and I went to Berea to see Dale's children.  Jacob and his soon to be wife, Lizabeth, had a baby shower.  They are having a baby girl next month.  Jessica and Addily Grace was th…

The other night I was scrolling through my Facebook newsfeed, completely out of boredom.  It was late at night and I couldn't sleep, insomnia had kicked in hard.  I like a lot of bands’ pages, so I keep up with when they release new music or announce tour dates, because I'm a concert junkie.
