Well it’s that time of the year and I’ve been doing these for several years and it always has to do with me sitting in a stand and thinking about an awful lot of memories.Well tomorrow I’ll spend my birthday at Vanderbilt having an electrophysiology procedure.This is a long name for what boils down to a device they put in a chamber of your heart that prevents blood clots and if all works according to Hoyle then I can quit taking blood thinners.I’ll still be thinking of all the great things that have come my way and of course wondering if that big ten point is in range of my stand. It’s been a helluva ride these past 76 years with a few regrets but over all I’ve been blessed with a great life. I married a great woman who is my best hunting buddy that in itself is priceless.One day I’ll tell the story that started about 4 years ago when I found out I had a daughter who was born in 1969 that I never knew existed plus I have 3 great grandchildren one 16 year old grandson who loves to hunt and fish.My daughter was given up for adoption when she was 5 days old in Ms where I attended college. Sorry I got a little carried away. I hope y’all have a great season and stick a big one.I’m already wondering about that big 10 point. Good luck all Lewis

I’m following. I love to hear reflections from the heart of experienced people.

I hope that big 10 walks by at 17 yards upwind, stops, and looks the other way.

Happy birthday sir and wishing you many, many more!

I hope your procedure goes well and you get a shot at that 10 point.

Reflecting is a good thing and I find the older I get the more I do it myself. I enjoyed your reflections and I appreciate you sharing them with us.

Happy birthday Lewis and good luck with the procedure and the 10 point from someone your age. And Lewis, I often say I'm glad I'm as old as I am with the way some things are trending theses days. We've had it pretty good and still looking for 10 pointers. I spent the last three days in a stand too. Doesn't get much better.

Happy Birthday and I will be praying for a successful procedure tomorrow, I still need to send you my pictures from AZ even though I did not kill an elk. We had a great time working them but it just didn't come together and I still consider it one of my top trips with GREAT FRIENDS to share my trip.
