We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
Lovely day of fishing with "Gwynnie" today on his beautiful stream. Is there a name for the color of the earliest spring leaves in New England, that easy-on-the-eyes translucent yellow and green?
A darn shame Capt. Tom couldn't join us to offer me some fishin' tips and some photo tips.
Pool on the stream. There's a Red Tail nest down a little ways. We saw a Bald Eagle en route. Woods were full of singing flycatchers, warblers, and thrushes mostly headed further north. Atlantic Flyway.
Brought home a good-sized Brookie who obviously thrashed in the leaves for a minute. I considered a new recipe - oak-leaf-encrusted trout. Will cook him up for dinner tonight for Mrs. BD as an early Mother's Day treat. Orange flesh, like Salmon.
(No wonder Dunkin Donuts pays Maggie's $5 million/year for publicity...it's a good deal for them. Next, we'll work on a similiar deal with HARPOON BREWERY, makers of delicious brews. Consider it, fellas - Maggie's is an elite market!)
The color of spring in Connecticut - kind of a reverse fall - is always beautiful. And Harpoon - just had their Oyster Stout again tonight. It's an amazing brew that is only around for a short while. Enjoy it if you can.
