Re: First in Five Seasons

My son was my best hunting buddy & then he went this vegan route....to say I was flabbergasted would be mildly! I was lost forsaken & lonely. But I kept mouth SHUT! I did antagonize him or criticize him...would let time & nature work it's course. Then one BINGO he was back! I was saved & born again!...
