Hump Day! (and I'm home!)

Hello Cyber World, I'm back from the farm and never been happier about it!

I spent 8 glorious days with Scarlett and Jimmy (with a small break in the middle) and you know the one nice thing about going home? It makes me more thankful for having gotten an education and the hell out of Dodge!!! *haha*

My dad just had back surgery so I had to help out a little more than usual. Typical farm stuff...put out hay, patch fence, count cows, feed bulls, blah, blah, blah. Nothing real exciting. Scarlett and I got along really well and we took Grandma to go see Cats in Tampa for New Year's Eve! It.Was.Awesome!

I ended up going down to the 'hunting camp' when we got back to the show and saw a lot of old friends. We ran the dogs, caught a deer and drank a lot of beer! LOL You know the saying, "same shit, different day"? Yes, well...it's true. Give a bunch of guys a wooden shack and too much beer and you get the same thing every time...how dumb can we get? This is the conversation (and scene) I walked in on:

Doug: You go first
Dale: I'm not going first. You're the one that thought of it...you go first!
Doug: But you won't do it if I go first.
Dale: You calling me a liar?
(oh, here we go...)
Doug: No, I'm calling you a pansy ass because you won't do it.
(at this point there is a loud guffaw from the 15+ people egging these two idiots on)
Dale: Fine, put your money down.
(20's are set on the table)
Doug: Ready?
(head nod from Dale)
Doug: On the count of three....1, 2, 3
(and at this point, Dale downs an entire glass of pickled hog's feet juice.)

No, Doug didn't drink it. He wasn't that stupid! Laughing and puking (on Dale's part) ensued.

That's the most disgusting, hilarious thing I've ever heard. Sounds like an average day with my family, much to the amusement of MM. :)
