Anyone Heard From Ol' Rich Pouncey?

He was that naval captain who lived down in Florida. Haven't seen hide nor hair of him in a long time...

    Last I heard, Rich was so busy with the corn meal and the garden produce growing operation that he was working really long hours. So much so that he doesn't have anything resembling spare time.

    Mike pretty well covered it. Debbie and I drove out to see him and Maria a couple weeks after the hurricane and they were ok but busier than ever. Rich was already selling his grits faster than he could grind them and he experimented with putting some in the smoker to see what they would taste like and after he sent samples to a few customers, another market exploded. He had his son in law make him a smoke house and he's now smoking 600lbs at a time. He pretty well works from sun up to sun down, seven days a week. Did I mention that he turned 80 in December?

    Well, I think I called the right telephone number and left a message. We'll see if I hear back. If anyone has his number and could pm me, I'll verify I have the right one...

    80 years old and working those hours?  Lordy, what a constitution !!  Hope that schedule doesn't do him in!

    I'm not on here a lot but I had wondered the same thing. I had not seen any post by him in awhile. Glad to hear he's just busy, and at 80, that's great. I understand, I'll be 79 on Friday. Or would have been, if there was a 29th. Turn 20 by birthdays next year.

    Being born on Feb. 29th in a leap year does bring up some logistical quandaries. Do you celebrate the birthday on Feb. 28th in non leap years, or March 1st?

    I missed born at 1:00PM...........missed Leap Year by 11 hours. I'll be 63 on Thursday.
    Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death,
    I will fear no evil: For I carry a .308 and not a .270

    You're one day older than Debbie, she turns 63 on Friday.

    You gotta see that dude in the woods.  He doesn't look close to 80 years old.  Gets around better than some guys 30 years his junior.

    Mike, just for the record, I usually celebrate Feb. 28th but if I get a happy birthday on Mar 1st, I'll take it.

    Paul, are you still climbing 14ers?

    Jerry, I climbed Mt. Blanca, 14'345' two years ago. That was my second attempt to do that one. But I'm slowing down, I've climbed six total, first one was when I was 70. I've made a couple of pretty good hike/climbs on Zapeta Falls lake trail past couple of years with my nephew and his mother. That is a little below the summit of the first 14er I climbed. I still enjoy it but I tire more than I once did...;)

    Damn, Paul......I live at 6300 ASL and the mailbox 80' away in the winter makes me wonder if there's anything worth fetching. 

    14K.....maybe when I was 50. Not anymore.
