piece of bone in the woods…

“The tongue has no bones, yet it breaks bones” Greek Proverb

a piece of bone, amongst many others, deep into the woods. The bone & moss caught my eye for whatever reason.

Ranch Life: What does this mean?

I came across these two poles some fifteen feet or more in the air with strands of barbed wire strung across the from pole to pole and wedged in between the strands of wire was a large bone (femur?). Now I have no idea what that signifies. Maybe nothing but good humor or something more obvious to those that are around the ranch life. I took a photograph and planned to research the meaning. I have come up with zip, zero, nada.

Maybe it is a good luck gesture…or to ward off bad juju gesture…or a sign of the cattle and ranch life…or some one has a big appetite. Maybe someday some one will comment here and let us know. Probably obvious, but not to me.

OK: Update….I contacted some land owners near this interesting landmark and received this explanation for the large bone suspended between posts on barbed wire: some time ago the owners of the land placed the large bone up above as a humorous item to promote conversation and suggest the cattle rancher’s life out West. So, kind of artistic and tongue in cheek.

Casting the Fly Rod: Both Hands

SwittersB

Yes, that’s actually me fishing. Hard to believe. Now aside from the fact that I am a terrible double hauler…there is something else about this shot for you to consider for your own evolution.

My right wrist is fully fused. It has been for the better part of maybe 15 years. A titanium bar extends from right behind my middle knuckle half way up my forearm, secured with 7 screws. The wrist bone is actually a lot of hip bone, as the original bone was so badly damaged with arthritis it had to be removed and hip bone fused into the location. So, I can still cast ok with the right arm, my natural arm. But, my finger tips are partly numb and my knuckles are slightly swollen and painful.

But, after that surgery, a very painful ordeal I might add, I started out of necessity to cast with my left hand/arm. Yes, at first it was clumsy. At first, I played with the roll cast. But, today I am a passable caster with my left arm and you should be too. Not that you will have surgery necessarily.

But, injuries happen. Surgeries happen. Pain happens. Give it a try on a small scale. You won’t be wasting valuable fishing time. Or, go to a nearby park or your back yard or school yard and practice the stroke, the line management in your right hand, the single haul and if you are real coordinated the double haul (eventually). It will add to you arsenal, to your presentation. Of course, you will have to adapt to that reel handle being where it has always been should you catch a fish. Easy enough to switch over to the other hand as ‘normal’ to play the fish.

C. S. Lewis on Do Gooder Tyranny

“Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience.”
