Game On! The Glory of October

Whitetail crossing Maryland's Bohemia River at Dawn
It's October. Some years it's dominated by rain and unpredictability; this year we're still on a thread of a drought and mild temperatures.

It's a month full of hunting, fishing, family "fall" activities, and trying to wrap up work that can't, or at least shouldn't, continue past our first hard freeze in late December or January (or in last winter's case...never).

I'm hardly writing at all right now.  But I'll be back very soon. See you all then.

Built this bog in September...now watching it fill with water and turn green...

How is your brother?

I'll assume you mean the youngest one. He's good - busy. Working 3 weeks on / off out of a tugboat company in New York City. Hitting the water HARD every time he comes home. Found himself a nice young lady and they are getting along pretty well. Not sure he even reads this blog, and (as far as I know) he has totally stopped writing, which I think was prompted by some laptop problems, and just turned into a lack of wanting to write anymore (just a guess). Saw him 3 weeks ago for my son's birthday, fished with him 8 weeks ago.

Thanks for stopping by, Rev!

I figured as much. I was in NYC/NJ for 15 years.

Our family's from NYC and the way I usually state it is that I always look forward to going, and I always look forward to leaving.

I've often said that I could live and work there if I knew it was for a set amount of time (i.e. 5 years) and then I'd be wherever I wanted to be (i.e. Costa Rica) for the rest of my life after that. But I'm smart enough to know that life doesn't work out that way!
