It is Travis' birthday today. 38 years ago he was born at about 5:30 AM. I was at the hospital for everything but of course back then no fathers were allowed in the room. I spent about an hour with Gail and Travis and then went south of Devils Lake and shot a nice 4 point buck. Got back to the hospital about noon. Now I am not sure I would recommend that schedule to all new fathers but it seems to me I did it with Gail's blessing. As I write this Travis is tailgating at the U for their 11 AM game today. It was so funny. He was here yesterday and I showed him a picture of him and his big jackrabbit he shot when he was about 10. He took the picture to tailgating as U of MN is playing the SD Jackrabbits. I think only Travis would do that.
I think I am going to spent most of the day cleaning up here. As I sort, recycle, throw ETC. the house gets to looking very messy. Maybe an orderly place will cheer me up a bit.
