What day is it for you?
One of my nieces celebrated her 4th birthday a few years ago. She and her mom were going somewhere together in their van shortly after her birthday. And all of a sudden, she says to her mom, “Well, it’s day two.”
“What do you mean, ‘It’s day two?’” the mom asked.
And my niece replied, “It’s day two after my birthday, Mommy!”

I noticed that I was shivering. I had seen deer off and on all morning and I was afraid that any move I made would be detected by a nearby deer. So I sat still and shivered. That particular morning was not unlike most of the cold mornings when I hunt. I travel light and pack heavy. I try to eliminate any sweating while walking to my tree stand. When I get to the stand I either put my clothes on at the base of the tree or when I get to the top. When it’s real cold I even change socks after I arrive.
