@70 Looking Back 5 years ago...........

This paragraph is still one of my favorites five years after I wrote it.  It doesn't seem to wear out!

"History doesn't have a reverse gear and there are no do-overs in parenting. We all have the same amount of time every single day to do our best. I always tried to accept the world for what it was and work hard to exploit the opportunities I was given. Sometimes they are hard to see. This past year I have shut off the TV and stayed away from the trance of the lies and bias of a defeated establishment. Hunting has shown me how important pacing one's life is and how important being able to haul ass is too. It's proven that you are only out of the game when you quit. There are a lot of high peaks and deep canyons in life, all possible to get over if you want to pay the price, your price, not mine. Those trips many times will take from you, to get you out of that comfort zone. Those ridges and that rough water will always be there. In my mind, I live deer every day all year long and have for years. What keeps me going is that I know my time is limited for quality hunting. The day will come when I won't get to hunt like I did. The legs won't allow it, so I feel like I have to give it everything I can, while I can. I still can. In closing let me tell you what I would like to see at 65 in 2019. To see less fraud and farce. To see fewer lies from society. To see less instant replay and less end-zone theatrics. To see less bullshit and more personal responsibility. Less government ie my tax dollars and more man up and do it. To see fewer tweets from our President on the stock market and Hillary Clinton brought to account. To see a far smaller balance sheet at our Central Bank and a Fed audit. To see a level playing field in our capital markets infrastructure. To see less war and less class warfare and to continue to hear less of a large sucking sound in D.C. In a perfect world, to have the Montana legislature shorten the mule deer season by a week to 10 days for more bucks, bigger bucks for the kids and hunters who hunt.

Hey, 65 isn't too old to dream!

Thanks for coming along with me!"
