I've been a bad little blogger this week. Tuesday totally escaped me and I'm late today. (For varying degrees of late. I usually have this pre-scheduled.)
I was watching a long compilation video of lab puppies the other day and as I watched, I felt myself getting the urge to get a puppy. So I stopped watching the video. I don't need that kind of mind control in my life. Cuz I do not need a puppy in my life.
Today's the day I need to renew our fishing licenses. They run for a year and this was the day last year, I guess, since this is the expiration date on our current ones. It's all online now, so no big deal. And they're only like $12 a pop. Which makes me wonder why people fish without a license. The fine is gonna be way more than $12 if the DNR catches you. Derp. Maybe they like livin' on the edge. Maybe they feel like they're stickin' it to the man. Maybe they're just lazy morons.
My only issue with fishing licenses is that if I go 5 miles south of here, I can't fish without an 'out of state' Arkansas license (unless I'm on the lake, then it's okay because there's some kind of agreement between MO and AR on the lake). And out of state licenses are expensive. Man, there's this one place we found that looks awesome for fishing, but it's in AR and I'm not buying another license just to fish there. I'll stay in MO.
Speaking of fishing, this morning I saw an article about a new legislative bill in Maine that would make it a Class E misdemeanor to fish with anything that isn't biodegradable - hooks, lures, etc. Umm, yah. Another reason not to go to Maine.
Every day, several times a day it seems, I see another thing that makes me wonder what in the hell is wrong with people. Then I run into a little old lady at the Walmart who reminds me that the majority of people are still sane and nice and good. This last little old lady was 81, maybe 80 pounds soaking wet, and probably about 4'5". Sharp as a knife, she was. I helped her out by reading labels of stuff that was too high for her to look at. Then we got to chatting. Helluva gal. I actually run into people like that all the time. Yes, at the Walmart. Good people out living their lives without being drawn into the shittiness we're blasted with in the news every day. (Remember, the good outnumber the bad - they just don't get as much press.)
And on that note, I'll let you go live your lives. Have an awesome day. And find some good out there while you're at it. ;o)
