    I am filling out an application for a pass port. Then I was stopped dead.

    My problem is the birth date of my dad. I don’t know it, and there is no one I know who would know. I have no idea where he is, or if he is even alive. I was 5 when I last saw him, that was about 50 years ago.

    Any suggestions would be helpful.

    Make one up. If they complain just say that’s what you thought it was. Do they check that?

    I don’t know, Creek. I’m very ignorant to all this. But I need to get the passport for my job because in Oct. they are sending me to Mex. to train others on how to do my job.

    I guess I can go to the PO and talk to the person who works with getting these things sent. Maybe they can tell me if it’s really needed.

    By the way, how’s your rib doing?

    Slow healing. I haven’t drowned a fly yet this year.

    Soon hopefully.

    Scotty:
    There are literally tens of thousands of people in the same boat as you. Call the passport office (or drop in if you are near one) and ask them what to do.
    Here in Canada, I believe there is latitude in the system for an “I Don’t Know, nor does anyone else” answer to that and similar questions.
    Good luck.

    I went into the city building this morning and explained the issue to the lady. She got rid of my stress and told me not to worry about it. I guess basically they want is to see that stamp on the birth cert. She said filling the app. out is the hardest part, but if they want to get something clarified, they will send me a letter to fill out, but she didn’t think it would happen.

    On my way to town, this pick-up truck came next to me at hwy 66 and the county rd. at the stop light. He made a fast right turn and his tailgate came down and he dumped a huge basket full of golf balls out on the road. They were going every where in the intersection like a bunch of renegade rabbits making a get away. 100’s of golf balls bouncing around. I felt sorry for the guy, and I wanted to help him and his buddy, but I was in a hurry.

    After I got done in town I went to Lyons and fished the Saint Vrain. I was fishing the spiders Creek sent me, and I wanted to reconfirm something. I caught 4 fish today, but what I wanted to reconfirm was two of the fish I hooked into, I hooked them downstream and lost them. The two fish I caught upstream I was able to bring in. I thought about what Oliver Edwards said about hooking fish downstream. I’m going to say he is right on that you’ll lose more fish that way. The water was cold. I actually had to get out to warm up a little. They say more snow on Saturday.

    Which flies caught the fish. I always had the best luck with Stewart’s black, but all the others worked too. Just not as much.

    Stewarts. Your spiders are smaller than mine and that’s what they wanted. Mine are just a little too big I guess.
    Mine that I had already tied were tied on #14 TMC hooks, and I am sure some, about half are actually #12. I won’t buy TMC anymore because I have had too many different sized hooks in the same pack more than once. I only buy Partridge hooks now, but have not tied with them yet. Maybe this weekend since the weather will be bad and the in-laws will be here, I can hide in my room and tie flies.

    LOL..I remember when I had inlaws. I’m glad I got rid of those idiots.

    My mom in-law lives with us. She’s alright. Her and I get along better than her and my wife. Which is funny because it was my wife’s idea about her mom moving in. Its my wife’s brother & his wife that are coming down. We get along fine, lot’s of respect, but I am usually left out of the conversations. So I never know what’s really going on, and really don’t care what’s going on. So I just hide in my room and leave them alone to do their gossiping. My bro in-law doesn’t gossip, thank God. But all in all, they are pretty good people with as many faults as the rest of the human race.

    Sometimes I’m glad that on my side of the family, its just only me. And I get along fine with myself most of the time.

    My ex-mother in law hated me. She thought I wasn’t good enough for her daughter.

    So, in turn, I thought my mother in law wasn’t good enough for my wife.

    We never got along. Her husband worked in a gas station doing grease jobs. I was a factory trained dealer mechanic. She used to always tell me her husband was a better mechanic than I was. I told her you don’t have to be a mechanic to do grease jobs. She would turn red and smoke would come out of her ears.

    The number one reason for divorces is women. It isn’t money. If it wasn’t for the women spending all the money, there wouldn’t be so many people divorced. 😀 Just kidding. Or am I?
