The New Sweetheart of the Rodeo
Anna and I left Thursday for the Comancheria after a day of work in Northwest Arkansas. The last stop before we left Arkansas was in the berg of Decater - nestled about as close to Kansas and Oklahoma as you can get and still be considered an Arkie. The reason for the Decater stop was to pick up Judith, daughter of Jack the Dog. Things have a way of evening out. Very sadly, the best bird dog I will ever have the pleasure of following, Carmen, would succumb to a brain tumor the next day. Judith has big dog boots to fill.

The bird hunting was as bad as we expected, two coveys in two days. We shot none hoping for a mild winter and frequent rains next spring and summer to bring this magnificent game bird back to huntable numbers. That should be about the time Judith is ready to start raiding the Comancheria!
