    A funny thing happened to me on the way home from the DMV.

    I spent the whole morning still hunting a piece of woods today, and never got off a shot. After about six hours in the woods, I packed it up and went home to take my 15 year old daughter to get her driving permit. On the way home, right at the top of the freeway off ramp, about a mile from the...
