Set my first trap in 1960. However, had a long lay off during my mid life years.

Apparently 55 years. Mom kept my essays from the second grade and there is one about me using limburger cheese to catch a barn rat.

But for fur trapping I will claim 46 years.

I got myself a seniors' GPS.
Not only does it tell me how to get to my destination,
it tells me why I wanted to go there.
