Hunting’s opening day in Sierra set for Sept. 28

Not long ago I heard a story about a school teacher in Montana who asked students on a quiz to name the four seasons. The most common answer she got was Trout Season, Deer Season, Elk Season, and Duck Season. That's sort of the way my mind works too. Opening Day of both deer season and bear season for the Sierra Nevada Mountains is Saturday, Sept. 28. Deer season runs six weeks until Nov. 3, while bear season lasts until Dec. 29.

Hunt of a Lifetime vs. Make-A-Wish

I watched the evening news the other day and saw where a group of local motorcycle enthusiasts were having a Sunday ride to raise money for charity. Despite the bad press that motorcyclists occasionally suffer from, I have found them to generally be a compassionate, caring group of people. My brother, Chris, rode a Harley until his death and it seemed that his motorcycle club was always raising money for kids or veterans. The motorcycle folks are all right. I wonder though, if they are aware of the discriminatory policy of the Make-A-Wish Foundation when it comes to granting kids ...

A short while ago, my daughter came from the East Coast with my grandkids to visit for awhile. She asked me if I would take her and the grandkids out to the woods along the river to pick rose hips. I cut some empty milk jugs to fashion collection containers and off we went to the wild rose patches in the woods.
