Walt Before Mickey (2015)

 Last night, I felt like watching something colorful and checked out Walt Before Mickey. As you probably guessed, Walt Before Mickey is about Walt Disney’s early life.

Walt’s path to success was not easy. He was often broke, often unable to pay his employees. I was grossed out when he dug a sandwich out of the garbage and ate it.

But Walt didn’t give up. People said he should, but what did they know?

I paused the movie many times to look things up

Here’s Alice’s Wonderland, one of Disney’s earliest work.



Hunting & Sports

I ordered my deer license today, a buck tag and a doe tag. My dad and I started putting my hunting tower together. We’ll probably finish it tomorrow. Got home in time to see Michigan beat Northwestern. I have the Tiger-Brewer game on. Top of the 6th, 5-5. Tomorrow is the Tigers’ last game of the season.

Justin Verlander & the Astros will be in the playoffs. I’ll be rooting for them.


I just ordered some stuff from Cabelas.com. Mostly scent covers, but also got a bandolier holster for one of my pistols and a predator call. There are too many coyotes in the area.

You can hunt coyote year-round on a Base License, except for November 10-14 when you will need a Harvester License to hunt coyote. You can hunt coyote with a pistol, rifle, shotgun or bow. Many diifferent calibers are allowed, including .22lr.

Coyote can be hunted day and night, but at night you must be on the ground and not in a stand. You will need a predator call when hunting coyote at night. If you’re hunting coyote on state or public land at night. centerfire rifles and pistols are not allowed, but rimfire rifles and pistols are, as well as shotguns.

I’m just jotting all this down so I don’t forget it. I’m actually hunting deer, but if I encounter a coyote, I might take it.
