It’s been a few days since my last post. Seems like every time I think of writing a new one, there’s something else I have to do or the computer is not at hand. I’m not a technophobe, but I don’t access the web with my phone, (it’s a PHONE!) and would rather not have it taking up room in my pocket most of the time. I’m not umbilically attached to devices, the internet, social media or the content found therein. Most of the time I don’t even think about it and when I go online I usually draw a blank about where to go or what to look for. To me, it’s a tool that’s useful when needed and is easily forgotten when not.
Well, that went sideways in a hurry! What I really was getting at is this; Thanksgiving and the days following were full of real and actual goings on that occupied most of my time. Visiting family, friends from out of town and busting a poacher ranked high on the list of good times. About the poacher, I’m a hunter and as such, poachers really burn my biscuits! They are greedy and stupid. How can they possibly take any pride in or satisfaction with their actions? They are thieves, they are selfish and they have no regard for game they kill or the conservation efforts that the rest of us appreciate. I can guarantee that he will take notice at the attention he is receiving from the conservation dept. and the legal system. ‘Nuff said.
On a lighter note, I’ve submitted an article to the winter edition of Saratoga Family magazine which comes out December 14, here’s the link. https://www.saratogatodaynewspaper.com/publications/saratoga-family Look for my submission to the fall edition on page 19.
