Poor old Joe Teti. Dual Survival seems to be a kind of death trap for the people they pick to co star in the show. First Dave Canterbury gets eased out in a welter of gossipy allegations on the internet that he "padded" his military record.
Now Joe Teti is on the receiving end of the same sort of treatment. There are stories circulating on the internet that he does not have the experience he claimed, and that much of his time in Afghanistan and Iraq was not spent as a soldier but as a Blackwater style contractor.
Whatever the truth of it, it's pretty hard for a individual to defend himself against a whispering campaign on the internet.
Personally, I find the man even more arrogant and abrasive than Dave Canterbury was, but personality is just something we all have to deal with. I'm not Mr. Sunshine myself. Given that Cody Lundin got the axe, if they get rid of Teti they'll have to virtually start a new show.
There are so many survival shows on television now, and some of them are so bizarre, that I stick to Les Stroud's productions and don't watch the rest anymore. I'd watch Hawkes and his buxom wife if they were still on, but their show "Lost Survivors" is not currently being shown on the Travel Channel at the moment. I did watch the first episode of Season 4 of Dual Survival, but I understand Lundin is only in the first four shows. Don't know if I will watch after that.
Today was the one day of the Great Rabies Clinic.The Rotary club sponsors it and the veterinarians contribute their time . If you take a dog to a vets office, the fee for rabies and distemper shots is $145.00.
If you go to the clinic, the fee is $24.00.
So we loaded up the dogs and went to the fire station. It's on top of a low mountain. There's no parking up there to speak of, so I figured someone would block my truck in and they did. It's just part and parcel of the way things work.
So is having to "chat" with the people in line behind you and in front of you. Years ago it was local people with big hound dogs and pit bulls.
Now it's people from up North who moved to Florida to retire, then move to the North Georgia mountains at least part of the year. They are called "half way backs" because they move half way back to where they came from. These people don't have big dogs. They have very tiny dogs that don't look like dogs. That's ok, times change. I'm just glad to have it over with.
The weather has been spectacular. Warm, and dry. Life is so much easier when the weather cooperates. I can see why people move to Florida. Sure, it's hot down there, but you rarely freeze or have to put up with snow.
