“Not Like It Used To Be”

You all know this was a holiday week, and like many of you, I was “outta the office” for much of the week.  Then I had some “technical difficulties” making a blog post.  As a result, I just posted yesterday, going to follow that up with another one today.  Like I will tell you with everything I post, you can take it or leave it.

It is the end of a short week.  I am going to keep it light.  I got a kick out of this short clip from Hank Patterson:

Know the feeling?  I often wonder if things we experienced when we were younger just seem like they were better than now?  I believe it has something to do with encountering things for the first time?

Or maybe it is just because the older I get, the better I was?

We often believe things are greener on the other side of the fence or “back in the day”!  Saved a quote from a fellow biologist here at Game & Parks, a wildlife biologist, about the grass always being greener:

The grass is always greener, sometimes it just looks that way, sometimes it’s because it’s cut differently, sometimes it’s the dirt, and sometimes it’s manure.

Have a great weekend, spend some time on the water, appreciate every second of it.  Appreciate every fish you catch!
