    The first real cold front of the fall hits Friday evening into Saturday morning. We go from a high of 79 Friday morning to a low of 38 Saturday morning. But am I hunting? No, because the women's retreat at our church is this weekend so the wife is gone and I am playing single dad until she gets back Sunday afternoon. Normally, I might consider hiring a babysitter for the toddler and taking my older boys out. However, the toddler broke his foot the other day and is having a cast put on tomorrow. Hopefully I can get out for a Sunday afternoon hunt after she gets back.

    Possibly. Problem is finding a babysitter all the people I would ask are going to be out of town.

    Fly out to Sacramento to visit a potential new rep, find out that they shut down power in the area where we were going to visit. Turned out better having the meeting at the hotel I am staying at.

    If this was directed at me, please note that I stated that any hunting that took place this weekend would involve taking my sons that are old enough to go.

    Awesome brother. My oldest is 17 and I think the same thing about her growing so fast. She is also a really good hs athlete. What sport does your daughter play?
