How long is a minute?

 I’m not exactly sure how long a minute is anymore.  Sometimes a minute seems longer than at other times.  For instance, I’m driving to an appointment and I’m running a little late. The traffic light I’m approaching turns yellow, then red. I have to stop. A minute seems like a long time.

These weeks are always some of the most exciting times for those of us who are anxious to get back into the tree stand after several months off.
