The 2012 NASCAR season has one weekend remaining and by surprise, it’s Brad Keselowski who has all the pressure in his court this weekend.
I am not shocked that Keselowski made The Chase, but I didn’t see him winning the Championship coming into the year. Perhaps, by mid-season, everybody knew, Keselowski would be a force to reckon with.
What caught us all off guard was the fact that Jimmie Johnson blew a tire and pounded the wall last week at Phoenix. It looked like Johnson was about to become Mr. Six-Time, leaving him one championship shy of the elite, Richard Petty and Dale Earnhardt.
Perhaps it is because of the recent and current wars that we are more sensitive. Perhaps because of the immense amount of our men and women who have volunteered to serve in our armed forces. Whatever the case, it is good to see that we are spending more time thanking and saluting those who are and have served on Veterans Day.

My family and I live out on a farm where we have horses and board other people’s horses. We also raise yellow Labrador retrievers.
One day I went out in the backyard where one of the labs, Princess, was barking. She was about a year old, and playful and fun. She was on a lead and had wrapped her wire all the way around the tree to the point where she could only lie down. She had no room to move. She barked for help.

Most of us hunters like to consider ourselves of the diehard variety. We’re not afraid to get up early, stay out late, and do whatever it takes to get our deer; unless it’s walk more than about a quarter of a mile from our vehicle. It’s true. Most hunters don’t hunt too far off the beaten path. I’ve actually seen some folks ride their four-wheeler up to the very tree they are hunting in. They say the deer never notice. I say they do.
