The Bible. Not a Jesus juke, but after reading it over the course of two years, it has become a habit.

There are many terrible attributes of the lowly cob. Not the least of them is that it makes you look like a doof.

This was an excellent read. Enjoyed every single page.

"Inspired by the true blue-skinned people of Kentucky and the brave and dedicated Kentucky Pack Horse library service of the 1930s, The Book Woman of Troublesome Creek is a story of raw courage, fierce strength, and one woman's belief that books can carry us anywhere—even back home."

Have a book I've placed on hold at our Library, A Practical Guide to Culture : Helping the Next Generation Navigate Today's World / John Stonestreet & Brett Kunkle.

Looking forward to it.

WaHoo!
Fantastic. Keep posting about your pup’s progress (with pics).

As Spaulding Hoffhacker says, “When better bird dogs are made, they’ll be setters.”
