There is reason for some excitement around here, the first batch of books, a whole shipping box worth has begun to find their new homes. The first book review comes from the owner of "Ducky" one of our Booker's sons, who we have never met, and she writes: "Brian O'Connor: Just read your book cover to cover! I love it! Footsie has definitely become Princeton's favorite game". If I don't say so, this is a wonderful way to start a long weekend.
From 11/23. Booker and I received an invitation to hunt a special place. It's been since 2006 when I had the opportunity to hunt a dog over a super-cover of quail. This one already numbers in the hundreds, Booker made 40 or 50 points , I really lost count; single, and coveys. He also did a great job of finding our downed birds.
I'm just a guy suffering with an infatuation with gundogs since childhood. Fourty some years later this is what you get.
