Ronan's report

Friday 3rd September, 2010

Well I have to agree with Paul and say that it seems like autumn and that in turn gets me to thinking about traditions. With the seasons changing it is good to know that traditions do not change, I like the stability of a tradition, we may not know why we partake in a tradition but to me it just seems right, why is the Canadian and American Thanksgiving Day traditions carried out on different days? Why are opening and closing days of hunting and fishing on their traditional days?

There are country traditions, of course personnel traditions and family traditions. My middle son and I always go upland bird hunting on Thanksgiving morning sometimes we even get birds, most time we just enjoy the walk before getting stuffed with turkey. I have taken to fishing the first and last day of the regular fishing season and then the first day of the bonus winter season on specific waters and locations not to be named. The fly fishing fraternity here in LA SWAB tries to get out every Dec 21/22 for the Winter Solstice short day but lots of fun.

Again not sure why or how a tradition starts but hurray for them, so what are yours and why, lets get some discussion on the BB, some fly fishers have traditions that border on superstition or psychotic phobias, not sure that is me yet, but I don’t take my reel off my rod when I move from one water to another or when I am fishing the next day, or sure as poop I will have bad day.

Now that I am asking why we do things, here is the last bit of my Why Why Why

Why, Why, Why,

Why do we press harder on a remote control when we know the batteries are almost dead?

Why do banks charge a fee on 'insufficient funds' when they already know there is not enough money?

Why does someone believe you when you say there are four billion stars; but have to check when you say the paint is still wet?

Why doesn't Tarzan have a beard?

Why does Superman stop bullets with his chest, but ducks when you throw a revolver at him?

Why do Kamikaze pilots wear helmets?

Whose idea was it to put an 'S' in the word 'lisp'?

If people evolved from apes, why are there still apes?

Why is it that no matter what color bubble bath you use the bubbles are always white?

Is there ever a day that mattresses are not on sale?

Why do people constantly return to the refrigerator with hopes that something new to eat will have materialized?

Why do people keep running over a string a dozen times with their vacuum cleaner, then reach down, pick it up, examine it, then put it down to give the vacuum one more chance?

Why is it that no plastic bag will open from the end on your first try?

How do those dead bugs get into those enclosed light fixtures?

When we are in the supermarket and someone rams our ankle with a shopping cart then apologizes for doing so, why do we say, 'It's all right?' Well, it isn't all right, so why don't we say, 'That really hurt, why don't you watch where you're going?'

Why is it that whenever you attempt to catch something that's falling off the table you always manage to knock something else over?

In winter why do we try to keep the house as warm as it was in summer when we complained about the heat?

How come you never hear father-in-law jokes?

And my FAVORITE......

The statistics on sanity is that one out of every four persons is suffering from some sort of mental illness. Think of your three best friends -- if they're okay, then it's you.
