Tonight is New Year’s Eve 2008, and it was another good year with lots of blessings for My Shirley and Rad and me. Started off a little rough in January with multiple series of cortisone shots in my neck. Not recommended. I probably needed them from craning my neck during nightly billiards. Or gawking at girls. Now My Shirley and I play darts instead. She’s getting really good and whoops me regularly. The injections did the trick, though, and things got better from there. Recorded a radio spot for Cannon. Took some employees to the range and did some filming

I drove with my friend Scott. We motored a few hours to Cass County, Illinois, for Muzzleloading deer season. I had an either sex and an antlerless tag. We met a couple folks down at the home we stayed in that also had tags. The house was only a few minutes away from the Illinois river, which we had to cross to get to the island where we were to hunt. Crossing a pitch black river would be fun in an unfamiliar boat.
The first morning we were up about 5AM. The wet gusts were making the 17 degree weather
