Goal for the future

I just saw this and it kinda pissed me off: http://bangordailynews.com/2011/07/14/uncategorized/republican-lawmaker-to-lead-sportsman%E2%80%99s-alliance-of-maine/

Maybe its the stereotype that Maine hunters and sportsman are Republicans who love their guns (maybe that’s just my stereotype) but to me, you don’t normally hear the words ‘democrat’ and ‘hunting’ in the same sentence. You definitely don’t hear the words ‘women’ ‘sportsman’s alliance’ and ‘hunting’ in the same sentence unless its as a special kind of hunting group just for women. Seriously – like I am any worst of a hunter because I am a girl.

So, as part of my retirement plan (groom snowmobile trails around central Maine!), I will figure out what I need to have done/on my resume in order to be qualified and then make a run. Can you imagine?? LIBERAL, FEMALE heads Sportsman’s Alliance of Maine. Priceless. Now, to figure out how to make it happen.

First though. I need sleep.

Catching bass and watching for water snakes

I have no idea what Staci said after the words "water snake" came out of her mouth. I went into panic mode wondering if I was going to snag one with my fishing pole or if every bubble that came up from under the canoe was a snake below us. But, the plan was to catch...
