CATFISH SHALLOW, TURKEYS GOBBLING

I’ve limited my outdoor outings to one per week lately. With turkeys gobbling all across the state and blue catfish action red hot in the shallows, I simply cannot resist getting ‘out there’ in the woods and on the water. Not to worry though, I’m avoiding contact with large crowds; wearing latex gloves at the gas pumps and mask during those once a week trips to the grocery. As far as I know, social distancing with wild turkeys and blue catfish is still acceptable. After all, a camo face mask is necessary in the turkey woods and at the fish cleaning station, wearing gloves is always a good idea!

Being Left-Handed: Challenge or Advantage???

Growing up in small-town Forney in the 1950s, my sister and I were quite often “playmates,” since the neighborhood was not large. Needless to say, since we were fairly close in “years on earth,” we quite often “needled” each other about who had more various abilities. I let her know that since I was the first-born and a boy, I was the “special heir” and the oldest and wisest. She let me know that girls were supposed to be the “favorites” of the family and that being “left-handed” from birth made her part of a “special smarter/more creative” group of people!
