Only recently did my part of northern Minnesota become a turkey hotspot. Somehow we've been missing the cruel winters of our past. Rarely do we see two straight weeks of minus 40-degree temps and snow up to your waist on level land. This year winter was relatively mild until it was supposed to be spring. Minnesota DNR photo

Really, it is much simpler this way. Instead of two or more months of playing hot-or-cold every time we step outside, we can just embrace that fact that winter is here until summer time - none of the hassle of going coatless today because it's almost an acceptable temperature, before bundling up tomorrow to avoid hypothermia. Just wear your parka until it's time for flip-flops. It is as simple as that.

Looking at the variety of terms on my bingo card, I realize that living a fulfilling life doesn't necessarily just mean doing big, extravagant activities. Although I'm happy to have checked off some of the more extreme or exciting things on the list - like ziplining, walking a suspension bridge, touching the ocean and rope swinging into water - there are plenty of smaller ones I haven't done that I feel would add something positive to my life as well.

I was digging out my fishing tackle box the other day inside our garage where the floor is still covered with ice and salt and grit and grime.
