    I am wildly pizzed!!!
    First Saturday of bow so I know guys will be pushing the deer around even more than opening day. DR. Sends out 2 e- mails, calls, 2 times leaving a message and sends 2 texts letting us know a flue clinic starts at 7, a.m. Me and two others show up way early to be first in and NO ONE is there. Guy gets out of car and reads a note..Then comes over to our two cars to say..note says OOPPSSS..... We sent out wrong day it's next .... Saturday....WTH!!!
    So run errands and go to DD to get monthly coffee. Take out is 21 vehicles long and inside is a bunch of angry people yelling I ordered from home on an app. Where's order!. Sorry 4 people called in today and app. orders do not get priority...I waited 20 mins in line to buy 4 bags of coffee that went up 2.00 a pound.. I then turn to people behind me and say " your silver lining, at least you do not have to wait for them to make my order". Surprisingly it got a laugh out of them.
    It's been such a fun morning,I just barely miss not sitting quietly in a tree watching the woods wake up..:rant:

    Ultra Type A personality. Ha. I bet you want to throw the idiots off the road and control the actual flow of traffic. Hahahaha. Put on some Pink Floyd and take some Cbd for your commute home.

    I don't want to control traffic, honestly I am not a road rager, I don't like Pink Floyd or the F'ing Eagles. I see idiots everywhere if I started throwing I could never stop. I should try my wife's essential oils, or crystals.

    You had Rush, Jerry Rafferty, Molly Hatchet and Little River Band besides Floyd and the Eagles. That was a great time to be growing up and listening to great songs.

    Working from home today at noon figured I would run into town and wash my truck using the free $3 worth of car wash tokens I get for every 150 gallons of gas I buy. I used 1 cycle to since off 1 cycle with the foamy brush, 3rd cycle to rinse and the carwash is not working. I bolted home to rinse the soap off the truck, will take the truck to a full service carwash in the city tomorrow. Thanks for nothing.

    Rain the last two days. But had a break at noon. Took AJ for a run and to check cams...activity where I was opening day. Any ways get home to check forecast. No Rain until . 10 pm. Ok, I go to woods to empty vacuum canister , to get a bit done before going out on a hunt and the skies open up . Mind you heavy hoodie and shirt under it. Duck boot shoes on. Less than 2 mins, shoes are filled and soaked to skin,driveway flooded. OH I had opened the house windows all sills soaked and floor under them.
