    When you start making mental notes of churches with extra big lawns...

    .... And then you make mental notes of when there are no cars in the parking lots!

    When at least 30 of the previous 40 odd posts are something you've either done or seriously considered.

    When riding in the passenger seat of the car you tell people to turn right or left by "casting" them in that direction...

    When you marry your wife because she came to you and said I think you need a new another lab. And she was serious!

    when your planning (as I now am) to drive 300miles to attend a picnic test to see if we're ready for a HT in may that's another 300 miles away

    New vehicle purchases are based solely on room for kennels crates, dogs and training paraphenalia you have accumulated.

    When "the white house" refers to the state cattle ranch in Greensboro & you sleep like a baby 100 feet away from the residents.

    *When you send the teenage daughter to the basement freezer for the bucket of birthday ice cream and she yells back, "I can't find it" and you answer: "Look under the dead ducks!" Not sure why she came up all "grossed out", the ducks were all wrapped in newspaper and double bagged and the ice cream was in a 5 qt pail!!

    *When you direct your teenage daughter out in the yard while mowing (she was supposed to be picking up branches and other "stuff" too big to hit with the riding mower) with a whistle and hand signals. Got a lot of dirty looks but she "sat" crisply on the whistle and took precise angle backs!!!

    *When your new fall wardrobe consists of new camo shirts and pants instead of the "other" type of clothes.

    *When you complain about gas prices and having to drive an hour for major shopping (clothes (besides new camo of course!), large meat purchases, and going to a movie) but routinely drive 5+ hours for hunt tests and training days, and over 8 hrs one way for breeding a female in heat
