Although Pam Plummer grew up around hunters in her extended family, she seldom hunted, preferring instead to enjoy nature and the outdoors experience without a deer rifle in her hand. That all changed after a divorce a dozen or so years ago.
“After the divorce, my son, Casey, prodded me to get on with my life and find something fun and relaxing to do. He thought I should consider deer hunting, so I decided to give it a try. I’d go with him and he has always been supportive and a good teacher, showing me tips and hints to help me,” Plummer said.
Have you ever anticipated something that was to happen in the future — something that meant so much to you, and it did happen? Well, that is what is happening to me. It has to do with my book signings and the trip back home. I’m really excited about it.
I don’t know just how I reached this point, but I am actually going to offer my little book for sale.
Ever since Black Wednesday occurred in “Happy Valley,” Pa., — or is it now “Sad Valley?” — I keep having these recurring thoughts of what one of Joe Paterno’s closest friends would be thinking now.
I am referring to the late Eddie Robinson, the former Grambling State University coaching giant whose Division I record of 408 wins was surpassed by JoePa less than two weeks ago.
Robinson would be hurting for Paterno, who gave the Tigers’ longtime leader kudos (“it is really something I’m proud of, to be associated with Eddie Robinson”) when eclipsing his standard for wins.
While I have to admit didn’t feel good about the league situation as a whole while watching this year’s NFL Draft, I have to admit that as the first round wore on, my excitement level rose like area temperatures have this spring.
