I'm a believer

I've never been the type of person to tiptoe around unpleasant issues. I wasn't raised that way.  My motto has always been...well actually I've never had a motto. Oh wait, here's one I just made up. When life throws lemons at you, sell them for $1.29 a pound and buy new fishing gear.  

You're probably asking yourself, what's the point dexter?  Well the point is, what's up with global warming? I'm not seeing it in here in Colorado.  One day it's 80 degrees and I'm working so I can't go fishing. The next day I'm off and it's 50 degrees. Saturday, here in the land of milk and honey marijuana, it was cold out. It rained. It hailed. It snowed. It tornadoed.

I'm really not getting it. Anyway, no fishing here and I'm guessing runoff will be starting soon if it hasn't already started.  So, while I'm wasting time waiting, here is a little song I penned for your enjoyment.

I'm a believer
(sung to the tune of I'm a believer)

I thought fish were only true in fairy tales
Meant for someone else but not for me. 
Al Gore was out to get me (do do do do)
That’s the way it seemed.
Disappointment haunted all my dreams.
Then I saw a fish, now I’m a believer
Not a trace of doubt in my mind.
I saw fish, oh I’m a believer
I couldn’t blame him if I tried.

I thought rain was more a less a springy thing,
Seems the more it rained the less I got.
What’s the use in trying (do do do do)
All you get is rain
When I needed sunshine I got pain.
Then I caught a fish, now I’m a believer
Not a trace of doubt in my mind.
I caught fish, oh I'm a believer
I couldn’t blame him if I tried.

 Really, all I want to do is get back to my normal life. I'm getting tired of finding things to stayed entertained.
