I may have posted this last year, but I’m gonna post it again because it’s always good for a laugh, Enjoy!
I made sure to reduce my hours at my second job this month so I could enjoy the last bit of good weather with the family before the winter hits. I spent way too much time working in the last month and missed out on some great fishing as a result.
We drove across the province last weekend to go to Nova Scotia’s largest zoo. I had planned to get some striped bass fishing in, but forgot my fshing rod at home. Oaklawn Farm Zoo is home and birthplace of the largest lion in captivity, Rutledge, who weighs over 800 pounds! While this zoo is quite small, compared to my favorite zoo, Toronto Zoo, it’s prefect for young children and has plenty to see in a small area. It only costs $6.50 per adult, and children under 3 are free to enter!
If you live in the good ole US of A and have never been fishing, give it a try on National fishing day! On Saturday, September 27, 2008, there will be several events held around the country to promote fishing and hunting.
