Ups and downs; good and bad of 2018

OUT DOORS

I’m sitting here at my computer on the first day of 2018….Oops…2019. I’m betting I’m not the only one who will have trouble remembering that last year is gone and will have to adjust to writing the correct date of the new one.

At any rate, I have looked back over what I have written about over the past year to share some of the ups and downs; the good and the not-so-good that took place during the past 12 months.

To begin, let me put to rest the assumption that as an outdoors writer, I always use my “skill and expertise” to take my share of wild game. Not so in 2018. I didn’t get a wild turkey gobbler nor did I waylay a deer. I suppose I’m stuck with having to eat chicken, pork and beef in 2019.
