LOL / I was diagnosed with A. A. A. D. D. - Age Activated Attention Deficit

I was diagnosed with A. A. A. D. D. - Age Activated Attention Deficit

This is how it manifests:
I decided to wash my car. As I start toward the garage, I notice that there is mail on the hall table. I decide to go through the mail before I wash the car. I lay my car keys down on the table, put the junk mail in the trash can under the table, and notice that the trash can is full. So, I decide to put the bills back on the table and take out the trash first..

But then I think, since I'm going to be near the mailbox when I take out the trash anyway, I may as well pay the bills first. I take my checkbook off the table, and see that there is only one check left. My extra checks are in my desk in the study, so I go to my desk where and I find the can of Coke that I had been drinking. I'm going to look for my checks, but first I need
to push the Coke aside so that I don't accidentally knock it over. I see that the Coke is getting warm, and I decide I should put it in the refrigerator to keep it cold.

As I head toward the kitchen with the coke a vase of flowers on the counter catches my eye--they need to be watered. I set the Coke down on the counter, and I discover my reading glasses that I've been searching for all morning. I decide I better put them back on my desk, but first I'm going to water the flowers. I set the glasses back down on the counter, fill a
container with water and suddenly I spot the TV remote. Someone left it on the kitchen table. I realize that tonight when we go to watch TV, we will be looking for the remote, but nobody will remember that it's on the kitchen table, so I decide to put it back in the den where it belongs, but first I'll water the flowers. I splash some water on the flowers, but most of it
spills on the floor. So, I set the remote back down on the table, get some towels and wipe up the spill. Then I head down the hall trying to remember what I was planning to do. At the end of the day: the car isn't washed, the bills aren't paid, there is a warm can of Coke sitting on the counter, the flowers aren't watered, there is still only one check in my checkbook, I can't find the remote, I can't find my glasses, and I don't remember what I did with the car keys. Then when I try to figure out why nothing got done today, I'm really baffled because I know I was busy all day long, and I'm really tired. I realize this is a serious problem, and I'll try to get some help for it, but first I'll check my e-mail.

George Phillips, an elderly man, from Meridian, Mississippi, was going up to bed, when his wife told him that he'd left the light on in the garden shed, which she could see from the bedroom window. George opened the back door to go turn off the light, but saw that there were people in the shed stealing things.

He phoned the police, who asked "Is someone in your house?"

He said "No," but some people are breaking into my garden shed and stealing from me.

Then the police dispatcher said "All patrols are busy. You should lock your doors and an officer will be along when one is available"

George said, "Okay."

He hung up the phone and counted to 30. Then he phoned the police again.

"Hello, I just called you a few seconds ago because there were people stealing things from my shed. Well, you don't have to worry about them now because I just shot and killed them both, the dogs are eating them right now." and he hung up.

Within five minutes, six Police Cars, a SWAT Team, a Helicopter, two Fire Trucks, a Paramedic, and an Ambulance showed up at the Phillips' residence, and caught the burglars red-handed.

One of the Policemen said to George, "I thought you said that you'd shot them!"

George said, "I thought you said there was nobody available!"

(True Story) I LOVE IT! Don't mess with old people.

49 people were there, with plenty of food, and fun.

It was great to see you, and your family, at the CHristmas party.

Meetings and Parties are a good way to get to meet people, but you wont "know" them until you fish with them.

That being said, let's go fishing!


This one is still in the planning stages.

Boats, flies, lines, launches, lodging, lunches, all to be worked out.

Details to follow.

Do we have a leader for this one yet?


Unlocked and ready for sign-up.


TFF has been invited back to participate in the expanding of young minds at one of our local high schools.

We will be speaking to 3 different classes, starting with the first period.

Day 1 (2014-01-31) - Introduction to fly-fishing
          Most of this is "Show and tell"
Day 2 (2014-03-14) - Fly casting
          In the hallway is what we did last year.
Day 3 (2014-04-11) - Fly Tying
          This is the most challenging due to the time limits.  A wooly bugger may be too complicated for the limited amount of time.  Ideas anyone?

We will need some more volunteers.

Updates are in the works.

I'll take ownership of organizing anybody who fills out their information on this sheet.

This is a great idea.  Thanks for the help.

I resemble that remark.
