  1. Where the hell did this blog come from? I just saw a comment you left somewhere else. I hunt and fish the Potomac, Shenandoah, and Monocacy (and blog about it occasionally) and I look forward to coming back to see more of your great work!

    The Mid-Atlantic needs more blogs like yours!

    • Wow, thank you for those kind words!! I took a look and your blog is great, definitely one I will be following! I have to pick your brain about duck hunting, I’ve never been but really want to try it. And we live right on the Potomac and have a lot of geese here, but I’m not quite sure how to get to them either. Anyway, stay in touch and again, thank you for finding me and commenting! Ed.

  2. Ed, Your blog is awesome! I left you another comment at the bottom of the long list of others from you being freshly pressed today.

    Out here in Calif., and I am sure back there too… Duck hunting is normally done in a duck blind. Well that is they way they do it here on the ranch. What kind of dog do you normally have out with you, and has he been trained to hunt with you? The dogs are an integral part of the hunting done here, as they run out and stir up the birds, which fly and the hunters then shoot. Unless you are like my neighbors who’s dogs are so good they just go out and bring back the bird before they have a chance to shoot it. They say it is nice because they don’t have buck shot in it. I personally am not a hunter, but I have been around it a good part of my life. I believe the geese you have there would be similar to pheasant where the dogs go out and stir them up, but I am not sure about that.

    I just know that the hunting dog is an integral part of the hunting that goes on here. I also know that the hunters wake me up almost every weekend morning shooting. I still often jump up and run to my door thinking someone is knocking.

    Your pictures of the hawks are beautiful, especially the white one Arc. What an experience you must of had. Thank you for sharing and congrats on being freshly pressed. I am going to go explore around more now.

    Peace and Harmony,

  6. Your piece about Guy Williams was exceptional. Particularly the liar characterization. Dead-on. I worked and fished and drank with Guy as a rookie newsman in Winston. We talked too rarely over the past 20 years, but drifted apart. Didn’t know he died until early January. In fact, I didn’t know he was sick. Would like to know a bit about his last few years. My email is listed below. Thanks for rekindling crazy stories, warm memories.
