Frank Is Getting Ready For His Deer Hunting Trip ...
next month down in the Texas Hill Country. He is going to hopefully bag up to three whitetail does and possibly a wild hog as well. This is going to be a stand hunt and the hunters are responsible for their own field dressing. They have a cleaning area so Frank will be able to hang his deer up for field dressing and a walk in cooler for hanging the deer prior to going to the processor. He bought a new Schrade 152 Old Timer knife to use and a soft Arkansas Stone and some honing oil. Should be more than enough to do the job. Dudley can almost taste the bacon wrapped back straps on the grill!

Frank Bought Five New Tires For His Truck ...
a few days ago. He got some new BF Goodrich Mud Terrain T/A tires in 285x70x17 size. They are a full 33 inches in diameter and look great on his truck with the aggressive
tread pattern and white letters. He has a pretty cool truck with his Rancho
Quick Lift and Rancho
Shocks and his Ranch-Hand custom front and rear bumpers
and grill guard. Add the Off Road tires and he has one tough truck. The best thing is his truck is now fully paid off. He took out a five year loan when he purchased it in 2007 and he paid it off last week almost a year early. I have an idea he won't miss making those monthly truck payments!

Dudley Bought Two Tickets To The ...
Rangers second home game of the American League Division Series Playoffs yesterday. The Rangers have a three game lead in the AL West currently. The Rangers had a lottery to get a chance to purchase tickets. Frank and Dudley both signed up. Frank did not get drawn but Dudley did! The tickets were going fast Dudley logged on the website to buy tickets yesterday morning and got placed in the virtual waiting room. Dudley turned the volume up on the speakers and almost two hours later the alarm went off and Dudley got up and clicked on the pop up screen and got in and started searching for available tickets. Dudley's first several choices were not available and he ended up getting two tickets up on the third level behind home plate. The photo above shows the view of the field. Dudley decided not to go to this game, he will stay home and watch it on TV. Will let Frank take his girlfriend to the game if she can go or he can go with one of his other friends. Also bought a parking pass to the game. Hopefully the Rangers will win their division. If the Rangers can go all the way to the World Series again this year, Dudley will do his best to go to another World Series game, but that remains to be seen. Go Rangers!

Frank Had A Big Day Yesterday ...
he recently was hired as a salesman for New York Life Insurance Company. He has been studying to take a test to get his license with the state. He drove up to the town where he was to take the test in the DFW area, and decided to go eat lunch before he went to the testing center. He saw a McDonalds and pulled into the parking lot and noticed a late model Toyota Tundra lifted and sitting on 37 inch diameter tires. The truck had just pulled into the parking lot ahead of Frank and while he was drooling over the nice truck, he saw the driver was getting out and walking into the McDonalds. Frank was astounded to recognize it was Josh Hamilton of the Texas Rangers and the 2010 AL MVP! Frank rolled down his window and shouted hey Josh who waved at Frank as he was getting out of his truck. Frank went inside and went up to the counter and placed his order. He turned and introduced himself to Josh and they talked while they were waiting on their orders. Frank said they talked about deer hunting, trucks and baseball and Josh told him he was grabbing a bite to eat and then going to be with his wife who was going to give birth to their fourth child later that day. Frank congratulated him on the pending birth of his fourth daughter as he got his food and went and sat down to eat. Frank got his food and ate and as Josh was leaving he asked him if he would not mind signing his daily planner. Josh told him sure and gave him an autograph and they parted ways. Frank went and passed his test with flying colors after meeting the AL MVP, what an exciting day.

Frank And His Boss Went To The TCU Game ...
Friday night. The traffic down I-35 to Waco was terrible. They got to their seats around the start of the second quarter. The Frogs were getting beat pretty badly and TCU battled back late in the game taking the lead. It could have been a great win but the defense could not hold the lead and Baylor ended up with the win. Too many of the great players from the past few years graduated last year and TCU has a much weaker team. TCU has a great coach, it will be interesting to see what he can get out of the players he has now. Go Frogs!
