  • Cabin fever can cause weird activities

    Cabin fever has taken a firm hold, so I’ve started to do some fairly weird stuff.
    First I cleaned my casting reels, which certainly is not weird in itself. But, apparently practicing my pitching and flipping off the front porch-in the snow-seemed a little strange. I can only gauge this by the reactions I noticed as some of my neighbors drove by.
