Gone Fish'n

Sometimes you just have to bust the ‘ol hump during the week so you can sit on it all weekend.

I do not know what “Normal” people do with their time... Well, actually I guess I don’t know what I do with mine either!

Monday mornings I’ve got a pretty good idea of what needs to happen and when, but by Sunday afternoon, when there’s dishes in the sink, cows in the road, kids in the yard and bills on the counter, I have to sit back and wonder where the time went... And what did I do when I wasn’t doing what I should have been!

This is a pretty strange thing to think, but I need to be more careful about how I waste my time! That is to say that I need to be more intentional about it and stop letting it just slip away!

If I get to the end of a day and all I’ve done is sit on my rear end sipping beer on the beach, I call that a pretty successful day!

But if I get to the end of the day and all I’ve done is sit on my rear end sipping cocktails and watching reruns of Duck Dynasty.... Well... actually that isn’t so bad either.

But on the days when I get to the end of the day and have nothing to show for it except a sore thumb from flipping channels and a belly ache from chips and Mtn. Dew... That’s when I feel like I’ve totally wasted the day, and that makes me grumpy!

So, when it became clear that I wasn’t going to do anything useful with my day, I loaded the wife and kids into the pickup and made the 45 minute drive to one of our local fishing holes.

The options are pretty limited here in the middle of the desert, but we found a muddy little pond to pitch our lines into, and heck, the kids even caught fish!

I took along a Macanudo Robust cigar that has been nestled at the bottom of my big humidor for about 15 years. 

This provided me with a nice distraction from the fact that since it’s a day trip and have that 45 minute drive home, I didn’t bring any craft beer to sip on.

Either way, I got to hang out outside all day, Kahuna’s Chick got to catch some rays and the Menehune ran about and didn’t get into trouble!

That’s what I call Fun In The Sun!

Now that we’re safe at home.... Where’s my beer?
