You would think, being self-employed all of my life, that I would have hung (people are hanged, everything else is hung) this sign up many times: GONE FISHING!
I never worked a full year until I was 28 years old and have never taken a day off since! Well, almost never, it is a rarity for me. There is always "the chance" that I will miss something, some job out of nowhere will materialize while I am gone and I might miss it.
Being self-employed is not all it is cracked up to be. Never have I had a paid day off! I can't even imagine it. Someone would pay me to go fishing? hahaha! sure, in my dreams!
Well, I am retired now and one day mixes into the next, a Tuesday is about the same as a Saturday, sometimes work comes in and sometimes it doesn't. It is a bad economy and I don't hunt for work like I used to.
So I am off on my adventure starting early tomorrow morning. I am packed, have my TOMTOM, turned to a sexy voice for companionship and directions for when I get lost. A five and one half hour drive, the longest road trip since I was 27 and crossed this whole country in a 1965 VW Van! Now that would be a blog!
And this upcoming adventure will be something to Blog about too; I know it will. I'll keep mental notes and I am taking my camera so I can report all of the highlights to you! Well, the ones I am willing to talk about anyway!
And there will be fishing stories! Big ones! Giant ones! and The One That Got Away! Except I have every intention of catching it!
That's it! See ya Wednesday. I have GONE FISHING!
