I feel for you. I'm having that kind of month. My topper was breaking my ankle and foot last week. Doing what, you might ask? Plugging in an electric cord! Don't ask how cuz I'm not sure. It has been said of me, in the past, and I quote-
"When life deals people lemons, most make lemonade, you, (as in me), however, squeeze them into your eyes"! Keep your chin up, life will turn good again.

I've always heard that without hardtimes and rough seas we wouldn't appreciate goodtimes and calm waters. I wonder about that when it comes to getting kids hunting and fishing. With the hunting programs, magazines, and etc. avaliable today, I wonder if kids are gonna think its never gonna be hard to have success. Then when they do, will they continue to persue it or just give up. I worry about that with my kids.
