I turned 36 today. 35 is ancient history. I don't really get depressed about it like some people. But I guess it's officially upper 30s now so that's kinda creepy. Here's the cake that Michael picked out for me. I doesn't really make much sense because I want nothing to do with Basketball or Football, but he got it for me so I loved it.
Anyway, here's a recap of my day that I took off from work:
1.I took my 2 year old son to get a flu shot. He didn't even flinch. On the way out he said "Dad, why did that lady give me a needle? It didn't hurt." He took it like a champion. I then proceeded to get him ice cream at McDonalds at 10:30am because that's the kind of dad I am. (don't judge, it's my birthday)
2.I got a ton of cash and gift cards so I went to Cabelas to get a new switch rod. They didn't have it in stock and are ordering it. I have a 12 foot 8 weight coming my way on Friday. Watch out Salmon River. I'm going to make you my bitch.
3.I made a quick 25 minute stop at the Little Lehigh on my way home. I bagged one 15 inch bow and I didn't feel like taking a picture of it. The rest of the fish were assholes and wouldn't take anything. I did see some olives though, which was encouraging.
4.I headed back home to assist with stocking the local creek behind my house. They barely put any fish in, they skipped half of the holes that would be best suited for trout, and they were almost all 8-10 inch rainbows. There goes my local winter fishery. I must say, it pissed me off because that stream has pretty much been DEVOID of other fisherman all summer, and now I see idiots with snelled hooks and powerbait littering up the place. I did pick up a few mutants on a black bugger one my way home at a spot that was stocked two hours previously, but again, I didn't feel like taking pictures.
5.THIS GUY IS MY HERO TODAY.
6.My iPhone died not once, but TWICE, from the 80+ Facebook notifcations telling me that people posted "Happy Birthday" on my wall. I appreciated it, but I think that some people ONLY use Facebook to say Happy Bday to others. Speaking of iPhone, well played Apple. You lost me as a customer. I held off on getting a new phone for 6 months in hopes of a new amazing phone and you release a 4S?!?! I'm going Android!
Anyway, it's been a long day, I have quite a few beers in me, and I'm off to bed. Night.
