    ‎21st Century Lowland Autumns a Confused Mess

    Even allowing for the Old Codger factor can I seriously be alone in my frustration when attempting to 'call' this Season for an optimum in-the-woods Fall experience??

    Seems to me if I'm not fretting about a storm taking out far too much leaf before enthused with anything approaching an acid tint let alone that more readily associated with the season of mellow fruitfulness in all but the permanently diseased-burnt chestnut , I find myself stalking squirrel with perspiration streaming from beneath my hat rather than an invigorating frost nipping at my Cabela's turkey hunter sneaker-shod toes.

    Off to batten down the hatches and climb into my time machine with controls set for 1969.

    Rant over

    Of course, to truly earn your SD Grand Old Codger badge, you must also simultaneously deny, with vehemance and passion, that there is any such thing as climate change. Filthy plot cooked up by the RSPB, bleeding heart badger huggers, Tony Blair and the renewable energy sector

    Ah, 1969

    - First Led Zep album (enduring)
    - Richard Nixon elected President (discredited)
    - First Concorde test flight (incredible)
    - Harrier jump jet enters service (outstanding)
    - Robin Know-Johnson sails around the globe without stopping (smelly...probably)
    - First man on the moon (one small step...)

    Not a bad year historically but the weather was pretty much the same.....so maybe it's you lol

    Why did I know there would be at least one SD member who just had to Google Fall 69 weather!

    Off to re-set my time machine and then commence stuffing the Guy:

    Correct. I try not to be too parochial about such things but by way of an explanation I saw its use as a further nod to my seasonal approach to squirrel hunting with a rifle that is more grounded in American culture than British.

    The trouble with the good old days is you don't know they're good till they're old, you think it'll go on forever.
    Then along comes more and more legislation and 'elf'n'safety and it all goes to pot.
    Pot..there's another good memory...or so I 've heard
    "Don't say I didnae warn ye !"
