Re: plant ID/ hobbies on the decline

Is there more to fishing besides sitting and waiting????  (David, not  
talking about fly fishing which does seem to have activity)   Fishing  is one of 
Dh's favorites...ugh!!  I've tried and tried, since we do most  things

releases anyway.....but it's just so SLOWWWWWW.

Perhaps I just don't get it...or I'm truly too  hyper for that particular hobby. 
Who knows.

there is so much that one can do, has to do, wants to do, that it is  impossible 
to do it all....despite the desire.
