    Damn hot today . Heats been kicking my ***.
    Did get some good news after 22 years on the same job they decided I don't have to be oncall anymore.
    Thought that was a pretty good gesture on their part.
    Hope everyone is doing well and staying safe.

    At this rate I'll be out of shells and water to damn expensive to flood them out.

    3 Sandhill cranes in back of house. Strange place to see them.

    Tried making some nice fish taco's last night out of the crappie I have been catching. They turned out really good.

    Sorry to hear about your wife's job. When is your banquet supposed to be? Weird times for sure.

    Sorry to hear about your wife Nobands. Sorry I haven't posted for awhile it's been a crazy year. Been working around the house and getting a lot of hunting items done.
    Hope everyone is getting along.

    Well hell. Great to hear from you Belle and DZ Glad all is good .
    We will survive the job thing , just another reason to 2020 over , gone and done !!
    Our banquet is set now for August 29th. Hopefully we can pull it off. DU , Pheasant forever and all other organizations going to need some dollars coming in .
    Lots of changes to holding a banquet now though, seems like a new obstacle comes up as soon as you get over the last hurdle.

    Maybe you should look for an outdoor area vs indoor and move it to an early afternoon and BBQ setting. Everyone loves being outdoors, right?

    True .
    We've tossed it around just cant find really any outdoor venues.
    At least without going broke. Right now our funds are spent .
    Probably going to send back some stuff.
    Whatever we can send them at the end of the night will be important and appreciated. A few early ticket buyers are electing not to attend ,but dont want refunds . Props to them for supporting.

    You got any water out that way?
    Ours is drying up fast.
