AND we have yet to celebrate Turkey Day!

One of my wishes when I depart this world is for all (families, towns, cities, stores, online vendors, fly angling forums etc.) to start celebrating Christmas on 5 July.  Then every rational thinking living being with an IQ above room temperature will have an additional arrow in their quiver to confirm human beings are absurd.

I likes them lights but it seems to me that in prior years we could tap them with our finger and pop them. Or perhaps I am mistaken. 🤔

Since the Scrooge-like character has expressed his viewpoint, in the holiday spirit we should be reminded to be sensitive to those with different beliefs and practices, perchance we hurt someone's feelings.

Many choose to celebrate the coming of the Christian lord.

Others may choose to celebrate the Festival of Lights.

Some folks celebrate their culture/heritage during the winter holiday season.

And of course there is the option to just say Bah Humbug and forget the whole thing.

If none of those are found to be suitable, don't forget Festivus.

No! It was the digital equivalent of popping bubble wrap.  

I'm disappointed, but my wife will be pleased.  I often check the forum from bed last thing, and a failure to turn down the sound along with a slip of the finger (no boys, not that slip of a finger), would scare the crap out of her.

Yup, it worked.

Happy Turkey Day, you bunch of peckerwoods, dipsticks, and wingnuts!

May your reels sing with sand, your tippets break, your knots fail, your lines crack, your tip top bur, your flies unfurl, your ferrules stick, your waders leak, your bait fishing sinking lines float and your floating lines sink, your smart phones/cameras take a dip, your beer is flat and warm, and every weighed bead headed monstrosity you call flies find a ledge in 5' of water!  No snapping of rods; that's going too far and just too cruel of a wish.

I don't hear them pop. Maybe I have a soft hardware issue. 🤔

I hear them on my laptop and my Android phone.  I find I need to wait a bit first - possibly some background whichamacallits are loading.
