    Mine was this past spring...when we made it to the water blind in our first AA event. Got big plans in the fall in addition to some new young bullets.
    Hey Allen, I remember a good one on you. First time I ever met you. Bee sting?

    Yeah...that only cost me an overnight at the Rhea County ER. You probably don't remember the double D/Q in OK where we switched on the go bird and had a 12 hour drive home without picking up a damn bird...

    Field Trial in mountains

    Bird boy and girl in holding blind. Boy calls on radio and says he needs to see a doctor. When asked why he says "I have bee sting"
    When asked where .... well I leave that for you to ponder

    No... But I've done that kind of stuff so many times if I had a dollar for every time I went out in the first series... I could buy a new dog truck... Or at least a new dog!

    You were handling Ammo right behind us...we waited to watch her run before we started to haul our azz back home. I'm pretty sure y'all finished.

    Oh that's a good one Ted and brings back a memory!

    In Alaska back in the late 80's we had a teenage girl that was working as a bird thrower, blind planter etc... One trial for some reason she and a teenage boy were planting the blind together... You know where this is going...

    The first 10 dogs or so went along fine... Then all of a sudden the judge yells "plant the blind". (Before we used radios)... Nothing... "plant the blind"... Nothing... "plant the blind"... Nothing. Hmmm... Marshal walks out there to see what's going on, the two teenagers are steaming up the holding blind "playing house". Ahem...

    I had almost forgotten about that. She got all the birds down there, but we were not in synch. She is so tuned in to Bill P. that it was foreign to her working for a different handler. Fun time though, met some great folks...

    After Clint's long hiatus away from the game he decided to show up at a trial where his long lost buddy Lanse Brown just happens to be, as he approaches the gallery a loud bellowing voice yells out " hey Mallari are you still sleeping with doctors wives?"

    Of course the crowd is silent and all Clint can say to Lanse is " I would like you to meet my wife MaryKent" took a few minutes to straighten that uncomfortable situation out. It's all good now

    Everyone has wonderful stories to share, thank you all for sharing they are a joy to read. Mine, several come to mind first few while judging. Have had the honor of judging while 2 folks have won double headers, both of them were ladies, 6 or 7 aa judging assignments and 2 double header winners, very cool! Had the honor of judging a very nice young man handling a very good yellow dog as a junior handler in a derby, very cool! Call me a big teddy bear but when handlers have tears of joy in their eyes when their dog does good still gets me, very cool!

    As far as for me on the line was the last series at Cajun Riveria in my 4th or 5th AA stake second time with Pepper and he did very well in the last series even though I pointed him the wrong way on the last bird, he bailed me out and we placed 3rd! Then another is with the big yella Fred at Topeka did very well on the last series and we placed second! Was very proud of that big boy!!

    Great memories Regards!
