The parking lot at Bass Pro Shop was packed Sunday morning when we pulled in at 9:59, one minute before the 10 a.m. opening. We were on our way home from my Mom's when we decided to stop to check out the wall size fish tank, trout pond and wide variety of stuffed dead animals. And a lot of plain flannel. No picture with Santa though. No background check, no seat on big man's lap. Sorry, Dad's rules!
