Thursday I (Dillon) finally got around to writing two papers that are due Friday for school. The only mammal I can’t stand is the gray wolf. It had the potential to be a great success story for the Endangered Species Act and because of all the law suits and political problems I view it as a natural resource economic drain. My teacher assigned me the topic of gray wolves being delisted in the northern Rocky Mountains for my paper. I have been taking several test, working, and just going to school which resulted in an undesirable night Thursday. l wrote the paper in about three hours and my wonderful wife corrected my errors. She wanted to rewrite the paper and I got frustrated. Then I looked at my daughter and she started to smile and laugh. This optimism from an infant made me feel much better about life, so we went on a family walk. The papers are finished and we are a happy family once again.
