Today I was in the field...

 Today would have been my father's birthday. This year seems more melancholy than most as this is the year I will outlive his age and I dont know why but this just does not sit well with me.
I was able to meet up with a friend and walked with him and his 9 mo old dog to flush some pheasants out of the brush.

It brought back some memories of hunting with my father when I was very young and just for a few fleeting moments, I felt like he would have approved.

It was a bittersweet day capping a bittersweet year and despite the company I felt more alone than normal.

I was on target, the weather was perfect for this time of year and he declared the day a success as anyone would have. In fact I agreed with him.

Still I left uneasy setting the rest of the day up on an awkward foot.
