    Pearl my pheasant finder loves her picture taken life is short I have had a couple very successful friends money wise who have passed away young made me realize some things . By making this move I am able to bird hunt a lot witch I love I never get over watching a dog work I am 11 years old again with my first dog life is good. this era and a smaller house is cheaper per month by far than last place also so thats great . We have great neighbors that can,t do enough for you So all good. I am going to work on the geese and ducks at some point there are some around get Pearl one of those wet suites. I don,t spend much at Gabelas might go there for wet suit for Pearl. I use to like Gander MT They use to have great clearance deals and a few years back good prices on used shot guns not so much now
