Jonathan
Hey, good morning everybody. Thank you so much for tuning in to the land show. I’m Jonathan Goode. I’m your host here with our producer my good friend Skipper. Skipper, how’re you doing this morning?

Skipper
Doing wonderful. I went out on the back porch this morning and took the dogs out and boy that kind of cool morning was out there, crisp. Just gorgeous weather right now.

Jonathan
It is man the Lord has blessed us with some beautiful weather and if you’re just tuning in for the first time, if you are on the farm or in the forest, if you’re on a tractor in the truck, this is the show for you. This is the last show we talked about anything and everything that’s going on in the outdoors and man it is a pleasant time to be out right now. I think this this is the Lord’s way of saying if you can survive Alabama summers then He’ll bless us. I mean, these 55 degree mornings have been amazing. And I’ve been seeing a lot of pictures of a lot of people been doing dove shoots here the last two, three weekends. That first weekend Labor Day was was really hot but man folks are out there. Skipper a lot of folks are watching football, Alabama, Auburn football. Last weekend. There were some nail biters we got some games today.

Skipper
I think it was something in the water last weekend. It was like a lot of a lot of teams struggled in. Think so just for a minute there Bama. You know, of course I tell everybody you know you pull for your team. I’m an Auburn fan, right? I know. There’s a lot of Bama fans out there. But just for a minute. I was about to give some of my Bama buddies, a little bit of ribbon. But they pulled it out. But it was a you know, it was a weird weekend.

Jonathan
Yeah, it was and it was it was awesome. I’m looking forward to this event. I mean, this cool weather has been great. I have been looking forward to having the first fire in the fire pit. And so our family we’re gonna plan to sit out this evening and do that. You know, it’s I was thinking on the ride and I was thinking about this fire. We’re gonna have some s’mores. My kids enjoy that. And, you know, with all the technological advances that humankind has made, is there anything better than sitting out in cool weather and watching a fire…
