    When you hope your 3rd wife will be more understanding of not having enough money or time to paint the house, but that you can afford the time and money for the next new prospect.
    Just for the record I have very fine dogs. Some of the best in the whole country....or at least on my own block anyhow.

    When touring a duck club as a hopeful new member the first question you ask is..... Can I train my dogs here in the off season.
    Then during duck season picking up early so you can run a setup or two since you are already out there...

    ...when you drive ANYWHERE thinking, "Man, I'd sure like to run a blind in that field or across that pond." Even in places you will never be again!

    ...when you give your four-year-old daughter a "Back" cast and then an "Over" to help her find her lost frisbee in a grass field behind the house, making your friends laugh hysterically, but all you can think is, "Damn, why won't that kid take an ANGLE back?"

    or when your husband catches you doing a double take on a field/pond while driving down the road ... and he doesn't ask anymore because he already knows.

    Just might need more than 12 steps for this one....


    Or when you email the FT running order to your smart phone so that when call backs are posted on RTF it'll be easier to see which of your friends carried to the next series while your traveling.

    Yep ... way more than12 ...

    I wrote a column for Front and Finish magazine for a few years, and one of the articles was about just this subject. Couldn't figure out how to attach a PDF, so here is the link:

    ...your friends ask what the metal contraption is on the back of the truck.
    ...you have to warn your family not to use the garage freezer during the holidays, it's for the training ducks.
    ...you would rather get a dog for your 10th anniversary! Who says diamonds are a girl's best friend?
