Ronan's report

Friday 29th April, 2011

Mojo and Superstitions must play a big part in a Fly Fishers life for two of SL’s Front Page writers to have the same thought stream during a week. See how I got a water (stream) reference in there. This is how my thought stream came about, I was fly fishing with Kerry Pitt , underneath a bridge, that is very near a Native reserve, and at my feet in the snow and ice was a plastic shopping bag, I normally pick theses things up so I bent down to do so and I could see that there was a bit of stuff in the bag, picking it up I looked in the bag and wondered what the hell, looking around with more interest I notices several other pieces of stuff at my feet. It had been a long hard day of fly fishing, so I conclude that is my reason for not noticing this stuff before, now.

Inside the plastic bag was another bag made of leather, and inside that was a large # of objects, - a large eagle feather, a large square of red cloth, several pieces of leather , several pieces of leather rope several pieces of sweet grass and lots of pouches of tobacco..

On the ground were more pieces of leather, and several leather pouches with thongs for around the neck. I carefully picked all of this up, and took it over to the car, showed it to Kerry, one of the first things he said was that Eagle Feathers come to those that deserve the luck they bring, we agreed that the remainder of the stuff and indeed the eagle feather, should be reported to the Band Police to see if anybody was missing the items, it has been since late March and nothing heard from the band police. So this is what I have done, I am sure that the items are sacred to the local tribe, and being part native myself, far back on my father side, I returned the sweet grass to the earth, the tobacco to the air, the one leather pouch that I could tell had been worn and well loved, I returned to the waters that it came from, the remainder I have proudly displayed with my other collected objects, ready to be returned to the owner when called for.

Now what the hell does all this have to do with my raising MoJo? Well I used one of the new leather pouches and made a totem pouch, in it I put some special things not to be spoken of, and I wear it when I go fly fishing, well I think it’s effect on my Mojo has been positive, my last fishing trip I only caught two fish, and they were both RMWF small ones at that, but check out today’s POD and see what my son caught while with me, it was his birthday trip so only fitting! It was the first time I had worn my new Totem, so the Mojo is building.

Speaking of birthdays, MoJo, and superstitions see if you can answer the question below, without cheating, cause that would be bad MoJo!!

How Old Is Grandma?

Stay with this -- the answer is at the end. It will blow you away.

One evening a grandson was talking to his grandmother about current events. The grandson asked his grandmother what she thought about the shootings at schools, the computer age, and just things in general..

The Grandmother replied, "Well, let me think a minute, I was born before:



polio shots

frozen foods


contact lenses

Frisbees and

the pill

There were no:

credit cards

laser beams or

ball-point pens

Man had not invented:


air conditioners


clothes dryers

and the clothes were hung out to dry in the fresh air and man hadn't yet walked on the moon

Your Grandfather and I got married first, .. ... ... and then lived together..

Every family had a father and a mother.

Until I was 25, I called every man older than me, "Sir".

And after I turned 25, I still called policemen and every man with a title, "Sir."

We were before gay-rights, computer- dating, dual careers, daycare centers, and group therapy.

Our lives were governed by the Ten Commandments, good judgment, and common sense.

We were taught to know the difference between right and wrong and to stand up and take responsibility for our actions.

Serving your country was a privilege; living in this country was a bigger privilege...

We thought fast food was what people ate during Lent.

Having a meaningful relationship meant getting along with your cousins.

Draft dodgers were those who closed front doors as the evening breeze started.

Time-sharing meant time the family spent together in the evenings and weekends-not purchasing condominiums.

We never heard of FM radios, tape decks, CDs, electric typewriters, yogurt, or guys wearing earrings.

We listened to Big Bands, Jack Benny, and our Leaders speeches on our radios.

And I don't ever remember any kid blowing his brains out listening to Tommy Dorsey.

If you saw anything with 'Made in Japan ' on it, it was junk

The term 'making out' referred to how you did on your school exam....

Pizza Hut, McDonald's, and instant coffee were unheard of.

We had 5 &10-cent stores where you could actually buy things for 5 and 10 cents.

Ice-cream cones, phone calls, rides on a streetcar, and a Pepsi were all a nickel.

And if you didn't want to splurge, you could spend your nickel on enough stamps to mail 1 letter and 2 postcards.

Gas was 11 cents a gallon.

In my day:

"grass" was mowed,

"coke" was a cold drink,

"pot" was something your mother cooked in and

"rock music" was your grandmother's lullaby.

"Aids" were helpers in the Principal's office,

" chip" meant a piece of wood,

"hardware" was found in a hardware store and

"software" wasn't even a word.

And we were the last generation to actually believe that a lady needed a husband to have a baby.

No wonder people call us "old and confused" and say there is a generation gap.

How old do you think I am?

I bet you have this old lady in are in for a shock!

Read on to see -- pretty scary if you think about it and pretty sad at the same time.

Are you ready ?????

Grandma would be only 59 years old.
