I got up at 3:18 a.m. Saturday to go to the bathroom. Now mind you, I was really tired because my son, Jacques, had a dance contest the night before in Fort Smith, Ark., and we didn't get home until 12:15 a.m.
We took showers, and it was about 1:30 a.m. when we all got to bed. I haven't been up that late since New Year' Eve 2002!
So, I'm headed into the bathroom, and some how I got tangled in my wife Jenny's bra that was hanging on the door knob.

Christmas break has started, and I am ready for a hunting trip. Several of my buddies are heading to my lease in Clayton to do some bow hunting and camping.
It is going to be a good time, and, hopefully, some good hunting. The weather is going to be a little warm until this weekend, and then it is supposed to cool off again.
This is the time of year when the bucks should be chasing the does around that are coming into estrous for the second rut. I have heard some hunters talking about seeing bucks on the move in the last few days.
