My mind tends to wander along the roads between now and when, where I am and will be. And sometimes I have the strangest thoughts…
For instance, who knew Fishermen are superstitious?
Sailors who wear earrings or tattoos will not drown
Bananas on a boat are very bad luck
90 percent of the fish are caught by 10 percent of the fishermen
They do not talk while fishing because the fish can hear you (!)
Apache Trout are only found in Arizona
And, speaking of Arizona,
After the kidnapping, rape and brutal beating of a young Phoenix woman, the conviction of one of Arizona’s most notable criminals was set aside by the Supreme Court Justice Dept. (June 1966) because he hadn’t been properly advised of his rights. The name of the defendant was Ernesto Miranda. Arizona successfully retried and convicted him once again – without a confession. Upon his release on parole, Miranda sold autographed Miranda warning cards for $1.50 each.
And then on March 13, 1997, as witnessed by hundreds of people, there was an unexplained incident that not even the governor could explain, called the “Lights Over Phoenix”
I think I need further research on the superstitious fishermen notion ;-) Are you superstitious? Do you think fishermen are? Have you seen any proof that an acorn placed on a windowsill keeps lightning out?
In the meantime, enjoy the holiday weekend and Happy trails!
