It's cutting them loose and having the pack run the rabbit until it gives up and goes in a hole or gets caught. And although the dogs usually don't catch it, they run like they want to. Just me and my pack of hounds, in any condition, on any day, in the roughest places I can find . . .

I am Starting to Hate My Big Orange Coat

I have this really nice orange coat that I bought from Cabellas a few years ago.  It is warm as can be and it will keep you dry in any weather.  I have worn it in below zero temperatures.  I have worn it in blizzard conditions.  I have worn it in freezing rain.  It has never let me down in all the times I have worn it.

Honestly though, I am totally, friggin sick of it.  I want some spring.  This has been a weird winter, and we have had some pretty decent weather.  But every other week we have had snow and cold and wind.  I am sick of my big orange coat.  I am ready to hang it up in the garage and get it out next winter.

Every spring I wash it and hang it on the rack.  It just sits there for month after month until the next winter.  Bring on the heat.  Let the sun shine.  I am ready to put up my big orange coat for another year.  I am glad I have such a nice coat that will always keep me warm, but it just can't compete with spring.  I am ready for warm sun, daffodils, blooming Buckeye trees and red buds.  I want some spring.


  1. I understand what you are saying, but my goodness, you get all this extra time off to go out and playl

  2. You are sooooo right. I hope to get some time tomorrow to wear my big orange coat. : )

  3. I kinda of like it because thats when I get to do most of my running,but I do agree Im sick of the snow,its just when I hear birds start chirping then its almost time to go back to work!:(
