    He's had his ass whooped for being rude and smarting off to the teachers. Also got detention for that. Tried to skip it, got busted, escorted to detention, and his ass whooped again when I got home.

    I've whooped his ass for being rude and disrespectful to me. Then again. And again.

    Whooped his ass for smarting off to me when I told him to clean his room.

    Again last night for smarting off to me, Connie, and her daughter at dinner.

    Have whooped his ass for lying. Several times.

    And ass whoopings are a last resort for me. I've had him doing extra chores. More work that's about a 6th grader's version of hard labor. And what they used to call "writing lines" when I was in school. "I will not lie" 400 times. He's been grounded since about a week after school started.

    I have whooped this little shit's ass more times in the past two months than I have in the previous 11 years combined I believe.
    I'm really not too sure what to do anymore. It's too the point where I'm actually considering just saying "f**k it" and sending him to live with his mom. Let her f**king deal with it. Can't get any peace, cause as soon as I have to deal with his f**king shit, I have to deal with that f**king b****. Calling me all pissed off, throwing a fit and shit.
    Take him fishing or camping, maybe he’s acting out for attention.

    Tried a new material. Buffalo horn. It's absolutely beautiful, but damn does it take a long time to get that way. I probably spent 2-3 hours just sanding and polishing. As a comparison, the giraffe bone grips I make can be sanded and polished in about an hour.

    Muzzle blast tends to cause me to flinch more than recoil and God help me if the rifle has a muzzle brake.

    Just bought my hunting license and a tag for a buck. Muzzleloader season starts the 28th, and I'm going to be able to go home on the 30th and stay for a few days. I'm going to make sure the gun is sighted in on the 31st, and hopefully go hunting that night, Wednesday, and Thursday morning. There's a big ol 8 point that's been hanging around lately, and I wouldn't mind having him in my freezer.

    Our muzzle loader season starts today, I’m taking my daughter to a couple soccer game in Little Rock so maybe tomorrow I can get out if it doesn’t rain. I didn’t get out last weekend and make mock scapes lie I usually do, may do that this weekend. I usually get out and mostly rifle hunt when the weather cools off more, it’s supposed to be 80 today.

    Temps will drop this week, next weekend the highs will be 45 compared to the 80 we had today.

    Happy to report the kid is doing much better.
    He got into a fight on the 13th. I whooped his ass. Skipped detention again on the 16th, I whooped his ass. Got into another fight with the same kid while IN DETENTION on the 17th, and I absolutely tore his little ass the **** up. That was Tuesday last week. And apparently this other kid has a reputation as a troublemaker about as bad as Junior.

    His principal called me while I was at work last Friday, the 20th. She must have me on speed dial as often as she's called me. I saw the number on my phone and screamed until my throat was raw. Then I screamed some more. I didn't answer the phone. I screamed one more time, went outside and took a sledgehammer to a chunk of old concrete slab we've been trying to get someone to come out and remove with a backhoe. Didn't do as much damage to it as I felt like I should have.
    Then I screamed again and tasted a little blood. My blood pressure was way up, my head felt like it was splitting wide open, I could feel my pulse slamming in my head, throat and chest. My chest was hurting. Pretty sure I was on the verge of having a heart attack. Could barely even breathe. Went inside and chewed some aspirin and cried while I calmed down.

    Looked at my phone again, no voicemail. That's odd as hell. There's usually a voicemail saying "Mr. SHC, we have a problem with your son... again. Please give me a call back as soon as you can."
    But there was nothing.
    Well, I have the school's number and her personal cell (yes, it's been that bad), so I gave her a call back anyway.

    Apparently he's been on his absolute best behavior since last Wednesday, the 18th, but still wasn't doing his classwork.
    It's hard for me to try and say whooping his ass fixed his behavior, but it looks like it.
    I'd already made him appointments at the doctor and for counseling. He started back on ADHD meds two days ago, Wednesday. That same afternoon, I got texts from several of his teachers and the principal, complimenting him for diligently doing his classwork and for his behavior over the previous week. One of them stopped me at the car pick up lane yesterday and told me he'd had a repeat performance of good behavior and doing his work.
    He's yet to visit a counselor. Not sure when the appointment is, but I have it written down on my car window.

    The past few days have been such a relief. He's been polite and respectful at home. No more lying as far as I can tell. I took the morning off yesterday to take the girl to the doctor (she's sick). That was a quick errand, but I went ahead and stayed home the rest of the day because I was actually feeling too GOOD to go back to work.
    I haven't slept much the past several weeks. Too much stress. I've been getting between one and three hours between 0200 and 0400-0500 during the week since around the beginning of September. On the weekends I've been falling asleep around 0130-0200 and sleeping in until about 0630.
    I've lost 13 pounds because I've just had no appetite.

    I really hope it stays this way. Maybe I can get back to eating and sleeping.
    Don't ever think that because I'm peaceful, that I've forgotten how to be violent.

    I love the fall, there’s something magical about November. I love the hunting season and women in my family love to bake! I got apple dumplings and roast beef sliders yesterday after work and watched football all afternoon. My MIL brought over a couple more pies, sugar cream and cherry! I have to get more exercise and hunt!

    Mine too. Perfect temps, pretty colors, bonfires. Can't beat it. Spring is nice, winters are nasty, summer is brutal, but there's not a damn thing wrong with fall.

    My ex wife has officially accused the judge who presided over our divorce of accepting a bribe on my behalf.

    I'm absolutely laughing my ass off!
    First off, it ain't true at all. She's doing like Hillary, just refusing to go away even after she lost.
    Second, she keeps making noise about taking me back to court. The last thing on earth she should want to do is stir up that whole mess.
    IF she ever gets around to taking me back to court, you'd better believe that not only will we bring up the past, but I'll also be bringing up the additional dirt that I've gotten on her since then, AND I'll be trying to use this against her as an indication of her character.

    And something I guess she doesn't realize is... She's told people she wants to take me to court in Maryland. But if she takes me back to court, we have to go straight back in front of the same judge in Mississippi so that she can ask her to relinquish jurisdiction, and I'll be contesting that request. I don't imagine that request will go far after something like this!

    She's such an idiot that it's almost comical.

    By the way, if anyone would like to help.
    This is one of our dogs. As it says in the post, she was stolen last week, and found on the side of the road 30 miles from home with a broken leg less than an hour later. WE got her back the next night around midnight, when word got around that an elderly couple on their way home from church had picked her up and were looking for her owners. They'd contacted a friend of theirs who runs a facebook page for lost pets, who we'd just contacted a few hours earlier. The vet thinks someone kicked her because of the absence of any other injuries.
    Doc said there's no chance it'll heal right, and if he performs surgery for the broken bone it'll just make the bone heal straight, but because of massive nerve damage she'll never be able to use it again, she'll always be in pain, and it will actually lower her quality of life. So we don't have much choice but to amputate her leg.
    She's one of the sweetest little dogs you could meet, and by far my favorite of the pack.

    I'm furious that it's happened, but there's really not much I can do about it right now except to do what I can to help her get better.

    It’s like when a new Glock comes out, they all look the same. At least the metal guns can change the color of the slides & grips.
