While I encourage comments from followers of my (non alcohol related) ramblings, I was nevertheless somewhat confused, puzzled, even wounded - take your pick - by Dr Manhattan's most recent comment. He/she has commented favorably in the past and if memory serves me well even issued a warning of the consequences of giving out too much information. Perhaps the most recent comment is yet another warning expressing concern for the amount of alcohol I imbibe. Let me assure you Dr M. that the alcohol consumption is consistent and unvarying. One perfect manhattan a night measured carefully and consumed slowly.
If the comment refers to the spelling, punctuation and organization skills of the writer - I plead nolo contendere. For thirty three years secretaries took care of that stuff for me. In the past, an early morning review of my late night postings easily corrected a good percentage of the grammatical errors. Alas, this is no longer possible as I can correct the Angler 119 blog page as many times as I want but the Troutfitter says you should have done a better job in the first place, no second chances.
Upon review of yesterday's post I did find a few technical defugalties that were missed. For purposes of clarification: In line 3 - "game" should have been "clubs", the two periods after tee should have been deleted, a comma added and the capital N at the start of line four reduced to the lower case. The reference to apples is from an incident two weeks ago and perhaps should have been footnoted. The big long paragraph (4) was something of a mishmash and would probably be your best argument that I had too many sales up in a stiff breeze. It certainly would have read better if the rain/fog sentence was moved up to the number two position. The now third sentence should have had a "but" in place of the "and" following sulfurs and an "only"inserted between the saw and the one. Under "The fishing" the "it's" should have been changed to " it would be". For purposes of clarification perhaps it would have been more helpful to suggest some of the things that are available to do mid-day in the area such as golfing, or visiting the Fly-fishing museum. The last sentence came out of the blue. Watched president Trump talking about the unprecedented size of the California forest fires and the unprecedented back to back hurricanes and then saw a Lincoln project ad showing Fox news and Rush Limbaugh explaining how both global warming and covid- 19 were just part of a plot to make Trump look bad. Not sure where the thought for the title came from -all the leaves are brown---
If you want to read about current water levels go to WBA, if you want to know the rain will probably go around us or soak into the ground and that it's it a good day to be on the river read DRC. Only the most adventurous should come here, it's dangerous, you might trip over an innuendo or fall right into a double entendre.
The fishing - Wasn't worth talking about.
