Hey Swamper, I have been busy working alot, hell they only give us one weekend a month off and the rest we work at least one day = 4 days off a month sucks. We are hoping the go 12 hour rotation shifts so we get more time off. January was a very bad month i lost my mother to two blood clots in her lungs after she had surgery the day before. So thanks to my mother and all her hard work and savings over the years my brother, his two kids and i came into her left behind 401 k policies and life insurance. I was able to buy some new toys that i have been wanting for awhile and i need a new boat badly, pay off all my bills and 2 new vehicles, payed off all moms bills and her funeral bill also i close on a new house next month. Mom wasn't poor in any means and she made sure her loved one were set after her passing. If i had the choice i would give all the money away to have mom back, i never got to say goodbye before she left and that really sucks. I am not a member of Fingerlakes i thought about it but we heard there was alot of political crap going on in the club, instead i am a member of leatherstocking hunting retriever association a very nice club and they help out all the time when need,  even with new comers. We have been running the dogs in NAHRA and are looking to run in Baldwinsville June 1 and 2. Sadie needs one for her starter title and i have been running Ginger in intermediate, she has been giving me a hard time on her blind mark. She is needing more lining drills on blinds, i have been so busy working and all just having been training like i should. Hell i haven't even got the new boat out yet and i have been itching to go bullhead fishing but the work schedule screws everything up. I only went out ice fishing once last winter and didnt get out at all the winter before. Life is such i guess. Good talking to you swamper.

sorry about your mother pook.

sounds like she was  a very special person.

i'm sure she is glad you are enjoying her hard earned money in ways that make you happy.

i'm beginning to understand about needing lots of time to get dogs ready for testing.  sage is coming along now and i'm pretty confident he will get his Junior this summer.  don't think i'll be working for a higher title after the Junior. it's a goal I set and will finish.

have fun this summer and I hope you get to enjoy your new toys and home.

Hey Thanks Swamper. Yeah it sucks loosing mom. She had surgery the day before for a high hiatal hernia and the next day 2 blood clots to the lungs. The doc said he couldn't save her even if he was standing next to her. They revived her several times but couldn't get her lungs to stay working. I guess i am sort of glad that it happen that way because if they had to put her on life support, i would have had to call the shot and make they remove the life support. That would of tore me up inside to have to pull the plug on my mother. The only good thing is it happen fast and she didn't suffer. Thanks again Swamper.

Hey Swamper, Good luck with the training and hunt test. I think we are headed to Baldwinville June 1 and 2 for the Leatherstocking event. I am waiting on the open registration to be available. Sadie need one more for her starter title and Ginger will be running Intermediate. Ed and i had a great time there last year and i won alot of stuff at the dinner. Leatherstocking puts on a great event with alot of good people.
