Dan, I'm not seeing 'jackalope' on your list. Someone was obviously not paying attention....

AH, so it is....Glad you all are having a great time and a productive dig season. Be sure not to bury anyone in the quarry when closing up for the season, no matter how tempting it might be.

Did you say Wild Turkey? Goble Goble Goble. Have a safe trip home and hurry back. I got the Wild Turkey, right by the Little Miami River. I'm ready to throw our poles in!
