Are you tangled?
A female humpback whale wandered a little close to San Francisco and became entangled in crab traps and their lines. She had hundreds of pounds of traps and lines on her, wrapping around her tail, her body, and even a line tugging in her mouth. She struggled to stay afloat enough to breathe.
A fisherman saw her and radioed an environmental group for help. They showed up and decided that the only way to rescue her was by cutting the lines free, a really dangerous adventure because with just one flip of her tail, she could kill one of them.

When I first started deer hunting it seemed that the season would never come around. It reminded me how, as a youngster, I would anticipate Christmas. The night before both days I never slept much. Today is much different. I’m not sure why, but it feels as if the time between turkey and deer season is barely negligible. And even though I get excited to be back into the woods, I usually get a good night’s sleep the night before opening day.
I try to do as much fishing as possible during the time between the seasons, but my primary goal is to accomplish a few home projects as well as my honey-do list. In order to keep me going, I just consider these projects part of my pre season preparations. The problem is that I’m already feeling the pressure of getting everything done. The summer days are so hot that it doesn’t take long to wear out.
