If you’ve been having a problem with the RSS link, it’s been fixed. Sorry about the glitch.
More cartoons will be loaded this week or next: next batch will be published editorial (political) toons and a whole bunch from my Air Force times.
Have fished a couple of times for bass — catch and release. But the water’s still plenty cold and this morning we had a heavy frost. The Fly Factory and Ray’s Canoeing will have its grand opening in its new location across the street from where its old building used to be — at 11 PM, Saturday May 10. Live band.
I’m spending my time proofing Death Roe and planning UP sojourns for summer. Nomadic ways (not having a central Yoop location) require planning, meals, accomodations and even fishing gear, depending on the rivers to be researched. Film too, clothes for everything from 100+ degrees to below freezing, and footwear for similar extremes. Working with conservation officers is focused entirely on their job and situations; but research in summer is more on the setting and environment they work in, and later, in manuscripts, I marry the elements of job and place.
One of these days soon I’ll slide over to the Kalamazoo river, check the water level and temperature, and if it looks safely wadable I’ll visit the so-called Titty Bar Island Site and no I’m not telling where it is. Spring on the Kalamazoo usually features high dirty water and dicey footing.
