I Wish Mother Nature Would Make Up Her Mind

The past few days here have been in the 90’s which is about 10- 15 degrees above normal for this time of the year. According to the weatherman who predicts the weather like I do the stock market, and thus why I’m still working for a living, it’s supposed to be stormy this afternoon. Following that, we should go to 10-15 degrees below normal.


They are calling for lows in the 40’s and highs in the low 70’s by Thursday. No wonder we stay sick all the time around here. When you add the sudden weather swings along with the tons of pollen in the air, it’s enough to choke a bull buffalo to the ground. However, I have no intentions of letting the weather get me down. I just finished re-lining all of my reels, and got new batteries on my bass boat. I plan to start either catching or hair-lipping some bass on a serious basis shortly. I’ve already been enough times to get the kinks out of me, and now I’m about to get them out of my equipment.


I have not posted much information lately because I have been working on our summer newsletter, “Summer Scene”. I really admire and respect writers who can crank out an article every day. I guess that I must have limited cranial capacity because I have been saving my few original thoughts and comments for The Summer Scene. An idea can get mighty lonesome sometimes wandering around in my mind! Since half the people I know are below average, I’m not overly concerned about it. However, every now and then I do think that I have lost my mind, but I’m fairly certain that my wife, Martha, is the one who took it!


Everything is going along just fine at Riverview so far into this late spring, and I will look forward to giving everyone a more detailed report in the summer newsletter in a few weeks. However, I have lived long enough to know that everything can change in the blink of an eye. But I am very comforted by the fact that God never blinks!
