    Living the dream; aka trapline

    When I lived in Alaska there were rivers and creeks galore. In fact I had a river in my backyard which I ran a trapline along.

    Just a couple of weeks ago, I picked up a wolverine hide from the tannery. It was the last fur that I have been waiting for in connection with my last winters efforts. The fur is ever so beautiful and soft. It even exceeds the softness of my lynx pelts.

    I really miss the lifestyle of running a trapline. There just aren't the number of rivers in Colorado that there were in Alaska. In addition, the winter season doesn't last nearly long enough here in Colorado.

    Whatever drugs you are on , can I have some. Winter is good for about six weeks tops.

    Had snow one day in Houston this year. In my book that is one day too many.
