Last year, FuzzFace, his family and I had reservations for the 4th of July at Kaw Lake, in northern Oklahoma. After we departed our homes, we heard the Corp of Engineers had closed Kaw Lake. A few quick phone calls confirmed the lake's closing, so we ricochet around like a cue ball and headed to southwest Oklahoma and Ft Cobb Lake. We managed to get in at the State Park and had a pretty good time. State Parks didn't recognize the "Golden Age Pass", so it cost double what the fare for Kaw Lake would have been. This year we again made reservations to fish Kaw Lake over the 4th of July. We were informed today the Lake was closed due to high water. I started to get my back bent, and climb on my high horse for a few minutes, when I stopped to think of those in the Northern part of this country that has had their 4th of July plans washed away by the floods, and some had their dreams of the future destroyed also. I felt pretty much ashamed of myself. So, as I stop to reflect on this misfortune that has befallen a lot of our fellow citizens, I ask that each of you, in some way, pause to say a few words, think a few thoughts, or possibly do a few good deeds.
