The Rodfather has been kicking ass and taking names. The flush is over and the North Platte is hot right now. I suppose if you are "retired" and have all the money in the world, you too can catch rainbows like this one. I've been suffering head colds and English Department meetings. But tomorrow might be my day. In other news, I've been living off that rag horn elk I took this fall. You can eat these, you know. This particular elk has been delicious. I just fry it up with mushrooms, garlic and onions. You can sprinkle taco seasoning on it as well. Roll it up in a tortilla while you listen to NPR.
