I finely finished another book. “If You Didn’t Bring Jerky, What Did I Just Eat?” by Bill Heavey. He is an editor at large for Field and Stream and appears in The Washington Post, Outside, Men’s Journal and other publications. He is billed as the funnest writer since Patrick McManus but he isn’t. He is amusing sometimes thou. If I can find his other two books at the library I will read them too. His story’s are about hunting and fish around Washington DC, with lots of trips out west to hunt caribou,elk,deer and cougar’s. He goes fishing for taimen in Mongolia and claims to use prairie dog for bait, they’re really big fish. Bass fishing in Cuba is enlightening and I’m surprised he made it home from caribou hunting above the arctic circle. The one thing that’s constant is that no matter how prepared or knowledgeable he is he’s no good at any of these things. He does have enough success to keep trying thou. In one story he and a buddy go fishing in the Potomac River next to Fort Lesley McNair witch is a secure facility. They end up with surveillance cameras, armed guards and a 84 foot Coast Guard Cutter watching the fish from a canoe. Like I say the book is amusing.
I think I read another book but I can’t remember it atoll or what I did with it. If anyone finds it let me know. ” A Confederation of Valor” by Tanya Huff and ” To Say Nothing of the Dog” by Connie Willis are next on my list and should keep me busy till Christmas. I also have a dozen books I started and never finished so we’ll see what happens.
