Dudley Is Going To Get His Concrete Block Fence Repaired ...



The fence was built in 1958 and through the decades, the mortor joints have weakened from water penetration and the blocks have been damaged from trees falling on the top of the fence. A Stone Mason came out and wrote a three part estimate. The guy that came out knows what he is doing having done brick work himself for many years. He is a neighbor and lives on the next street over from the Dudley Domicile. They are going to do 2/3 of the work as soon as they can get it scheduled. Dudley is going to have the rest of the work done this Summer. Will be nice to get the fence back in shape with all the missing and cracked blocks repaired or replaced.

Frank's Group At Muddy Waters Outfitters Duck Hunting Lodge On The Red River ...


Looks like they whacked em and stacked em this morning!


All of the hunters and two of the guides from this mornings hunt. The Outfitter said they set a new record for the total number of ducks taken by one group of hunters at one time in one location. Every man got his limit!



 

Heard From Frank This Afternoon ...




He said they had a great hunt this morning up on a private lake near Burkburnett, TX just south of the Red River. Frank and Jeff and four of their buddies that live in Houston were in one group that hunted with another group of four hunters and two guides. Frank said they all got a limit of ducks. Sounds like a great hunt. Waiting on a trophy pic of Frank and all of the ducks and hunters from the lodge.

Frank And Jeff Are Up At A Duck Hunting Lodge On The Red River ...






north of Wichita Falls. They are going Duck hunting in the morning somewhere in the area. The Outfitter they are using has a bunch of places leased. They scout and put their hunters on a hole that they know the ducks will be showing up at. Hopefully they will all get a limit of ducks and may be a Goose or two killed. The last photo was of a group of 6 hunters from this morning. Looks like they killed several Mallard Drakes! Frank said they ate Steaks for dinner. Four of Frank's Buddies drove up from Houston. They are looking forward to listening to their Guide call the ducks in range and blasting the ducks out of the sky with their shotguns. Watching the ducks fall in the water with a splash and then watching the dog work to retrieve the ducks maskes for a great hunt. Dudley is looking forward to getting a report tomorrow afternoon and seeing some pictures!

 

Dudley Bought A Garcia Deer Hunting Book ...



By Russell Tinsley. Dudley already has a copy of this long out of print booklet. They don't come up for sale very often. Got a chance to get this one for a low price and plan on giving it to Jeff to add to his growing Deer Hunting Library!

 

Dudley Upgraded His Book Texas Rlectric Railway By Johnnie J Myers ...


Dudley had bought a like new copy of this long out of print book but was dissapointed to find that the 4 fold out route maps were missing. Dudley has found a copy still in shrink wrap that reportedly was never opened and has the original maps with it. Looking forward to receiving it. Am going to see if the local library would like my other copy of this book. Dudley is a member of a closed group on fb that shares photos and info on the old electric streetcars and electric railways in the State. The author of this book is a member and he is an authority on the subject. He and Dudley comment back and forth on a regular basis about the subject. Dudley has learned a lot, Johnnie is a smart man and has spent years on research.
