A quick note: My dad and I have been fixing my backyard fence all day, and one of my old buddies from my baseball days is getting married tonight, so I'm a bit out of pocket.
Gotta get these things out of the way before the season starts, ya know?
Apologies to everyone, especially all our new subscribers. I'm not usually out of pocket for this much time.

Ok- this one time- only because you have been killing it lately
You're killing us wes! #kidding
You're not out of town, so the "Rucker Rule" isn't in play. Go enjoy yourself one last time before the season starts!!!
Enjoy the day with your Dad!
We will be looking forward to updates tomorrow and a GAME WEEK VIP report Monday AM......
Nothin' beats a day with ol' Rawhide Rucker.
Give that man enough beef jerky, Bud Lights, Camel Lights and aspirin, and he'll build anything. He's like the Energizer Bunny — except he'd never wear pink and cusses a lot.
Rawhide is a man's man. Wouldn't trade him for any dad in the world, and I only wish he knew I wasn't kidding when I said that.
From where that man came from to where he helped take his children a few decades down the road ... there are special places in heaven for people like him.
I work all the time because my dad works all the time. I wear a beard because my dad's had a beard most of his life. I do many things because my dad does them. But I can't do half the things he does, because there aren't many men like him anymore.
I've got the same type of Dad Wes, Those Appalachian Mountain men are rough around the edges but damn they are Men among men. I swear sometimes it's gotta be the damn Moonshine that keeps my dad going because there's no way in hell someone 70 years old is supposed to be in that type of shape eating everything fried, smokes, chews tobacco and drinks like he does all the while working like a dog!
God Love em!
Fence. Rebuilt. Boom.
Now ... who wants to come finish clearing the scraps, dirt and tree roots from what used to be an Amazon jungle in the back left corner of the yard? I can't drink all these beers and do it myself because I have to do the VIP Room later, and The Redhead just had to go to Nashville to see her BFF today so she didn't have to help. YOU'RE NOT THE ONLY ONE WITH A WEDDING RECEPTION HANGOVER, REDHEAD!!!
Maybe that rebuilt fence will keep the raccoons out, Wes?!
If I wasn't 6 hrs away - I have a tractor and we could knock that out with plenty of time for those beers!
I wish I had more +'s to give you. +1
Agree tnbear +1
"Old School"! A strong defense wins championships!
enjoy your time as it goes by quick ; first year i will spend without my dad cheering on our Vols
I was hoping so, but my dad said it wouldn't. They're smart little devils. Apparently they'll find a way unless they're dead.
it wasn't my dad but my grandfather that influenced my life. born in 1902 built barns for a living his whole life. i mean the man was climbing on the roofs of 8 tier barns with me when he was 83 yrs. old.
only thing we didn,t have in common was he would not walk across the rd. to see a football game and i will go across the country to see tennessee.
caught me sittin down on the job 1 time and told me my ass would be glad when my body died. i didn't do it again. GO BIG ORANGE!!!
GO BIG ORANGE!!!
call the turtle man. he will teach you how to catch them with your bare hands.
I used to live in Atlanta in an apartment on Collier Rd. There was a family of Racoons that lived in a ravine next to I-75. They would climb up a 15-20 foot tree to get over the fence and get into the complexes garbage cans. There's was one occasion when I opened the can and nearly crapped my pants. One day one of them scared the wrong woman, and she took a broom stick to it. Very clever creatures.
