Seems like the term "Cleaning Out My Closet" has gotten to a lot of us. Dan and Bill included.
I know I'm getting old and there are some things that are just sitting around not getting used like they used to. Yes, the will is still there but we are all slowing down. And there's too many good things in those closets that should be put to use by younger folks on our board.
And yes, I need to clean my closet too. Rods and reels that I haven't used in years, or 12 wts' that have just gotten to be too heavy for these old shoulders and joints.
I wonder too who will get these treasures I've hoarded for so long when I'm gone? Will my wife simply put them in a garage sale for pennies on the dollar, or worse donate it all to Goodwill. Uugh. What sad thoughts.
Perhaps cleaning out our closets IS the right thing to do before we get too old to even do that.
Getting old sucks.
