Opposition In All Things

Last post, Addiction or Commitment, caused quite the uproar among readers. I received countless words of advice. For Which I am grateful.

I had a comment from the one and only upset reader. This reader just so happens to be the cute girl that gave me the look. Apparently she found my blog and is a faithful reader. Thursday night we were watching the Utah State Aggies play Hawaii, when she leaned over and whispered in my ear "So that is why we didn't go out in the fall." I knew she knew.

That experience has got me pondering about this blog. Is it a blog about hunting or relationships? I also wonder how much insight to my personal life should I leak onto these pages?

Since pondering I have come to the conclusion that hunting and everything else in life is about relationships. So today I pledge my love to my best girlfriend, my dog Lady. She never gets upset when I blog about our adventures together, and she likes all the pictures I take.

This blog is dedicated to hunting with my dog Lady, but i'll continue to include lots of life's oppositions "the good, the bad, and the ugly."

A wise man once wrote "For it must needs be, that there is an opposition in all things... even the forbidden fruit in opposition to the tree of life; the one being sweet and the other bitter."

Man's best friend, and for good reason! The more we hunt the more our dogs love us. With wives, I think the opposite is true. Like I said, the trick is to find one who understands the addiction: "I hunt, therefore I am."

Its true! Dogs are mans best friend, could that be because we can actually be right with them. Or for the fact that when we do get mad at them all we have to do to get them to like us again is give them a treat?? haha
