Last night,my wife suggested I go out and practice --social distancing. She thought a good place for me to start,was in the parking lot of the bowling alley 8 miles away.
Now she knows the alley was closed down over 2 weeks ago and my bowling league was cancelled for the rest of the year.
She misses the one night a week she had the house to herself. LOL,she doesn't consider how I feel--no bowling,no grocery shopping,no shows to do.
I can't even take advantage of the lower gas prices.
My idea of a good place to social distance,would be 250 miles Norhtwest chasing beaver--but that isn't going to happen.
Maybe I should just go sit out in the car and dream. Keep the wife happy.

If my feet aren't wet,I must not be trapping.

Go fishing


I wonder if tap dancers walk into a room, look at the floor, and think, I'd tap that. I wonder about things.....

Fill up with cheap gas and take a road trip couple hours both ways. Change of scenery, especially nice scenery, is always nice.

Drink alcohol and misbehave.......oh wait that's me .... sorry!

I'm shooting starlings with a Ruger pellet gun for weasel bait next season.... grin


Keep your boots dry and your powder too.

I remember when a fur check was reality.....now I'm just trapping for the love of it.

Best Regards,

JT

Been a couple years since I had a whiskey sour.did have 2 beers last year.
Daughter is going grocery shopping for us today.She said she is also getting a bottle of sour and bringing me a bottle of whiskey. The bottle will probably last me till I die. I do have a bottle I won 35 or 40 years ago at a DU banquet. It is a snow goose filled with whiskey,the seal has never been broken.
Aged to perfection??

I've got a gallon of Canadian Club that I won in 65 that has never been opened, whiskey just isn't my thing so it just sits there getting better. I will have a beer or two once in a while that I can handle. It's h$@% to get old.

Yep ,getting old ain't for sissies.
LOL,when I was young and foolish,a 12 pack was just a warm up before going out drinking.
Now I am just old and foolish and a 12 pack lasts for decades.

Life sure is tough when you don't learn from the mistakes of others.

Bob,if I am going to break through the ice--it will be after beaver,not panfish.
Daughter was just here after getting groceries and furnace filters for us. She also brought me some whiskey and some sour.
She said she could have drank the whiskey after being in the stores---she said how stupid other people were,they refused to keep their distances from anyone.
I said I would make a sign for her back for the next time she goes out.It would read--IF YOU GET ANY CLOSER,I AM GOING TO (This word is unacceptable on Trapperman) ON YOUR SHOES.
And everyone wonders why so many of the American people must be told what they can and cannot do---they are just plain stupid.

Lester may rent out his tent for some northern beaver work;
but I think the price doubles when the coffee pot is included.

Now I am not real picky on the cleanliness of my coffee pot,but I have seen Les' stove. I have my doubts on the use of his coffee pot.

Daughter just called,she said it was so bad at wall mart,its a good thing she wasn't carrying.She said a lot of those there should have been shot.They had no consideration for other people.

Had to go to Walmart yesterday here. Yes only one entrance able to be used. All taped Like lanes between Enter & Exit. Signs that said to keep a 6 ft distance from others. Got what I needed. Surprised to see most of the check outs open. No line for me to check out. Surprised the Cashier actually was wiping down the spot to write checks and the keypad on the signature thing. I'll give them credit for the extra effort.
