…long time passing.
You might sing this as a modified Kingston Trio version of their Vietnam protest song…..angry at “the man” and all that. Unfortunately, I am “the man”, at least the one responsible for latest vacuum of blog posts. Contrary to some rumors out there, I am still in a functioning state with most of my mental faculties in tact. This, after a very busy season is, if not impressive, at least cause for celebration.
Back in the last post ( May 27-June 3, Fishing Report) I ended by stating “stay tuned for next weeks update”. Well, 5 months later I’m finally back at it. Sure, it’s been a bit of a dry spell. Some things have come between me and my computer…..flooding, freezing, destruction, fishing, guests (and many of them), fish fries, fish cleaning, fish packaging, fish banter & fish batter….all things fish. It was a complete work out and thus I let my blog readers down. Then again, some things are worth waiting for. Of course my memory (being what’s left of it) is an issue when trying to piece together the string of events that make up the 2022 season. I’ll try and give it my best shot…bear with me if I overlook anyone or anything…..it was a heck of a ride!
Before we head back in time here’s a couple of examples of what’s happening in October 2022.
A bit off topic…..
…but I’ve had issues with the Velcro fastener on my I Phone holster. Was thinking it might be a good idea to replace it before I lose the damn thing. Too late, lost it yesterday while making a few stops via boating to the point and Boathouse Island. Tried phoning it but the volume was turned down….no luck locating it that way. In the lake? In the bush? Was ready to head to town this morning to replace it but luckily Susanne found an app that might track down it’s location….
You might need to check out the previous 2 or 3 posts to bring yourselves up to speed….I know I did. While the summer went by fast, it seems a long time ago that we were dealing with flooding. Here’s some photos to recap what was going on…
…the gist of what happened in June. The flavor, the aroma, the grandeur. The agony of defeat (if you weren’t here). Stay tuned as I ruminate over July. I will try and bring you up to speed in the next blog post, and I guarantee it won’t take me another 5 months. I’ll leave you with this memory of 2022…
If you were here in June and have a picture of your trip that “says it all” I would be happy to include it at the beginning of the next blog post. I know I’ve misplaced some good ones. Just shoot me an email with your photos.
Totally worth the wait!
Great Blog even if it’s late! Where did the summer go?
Gerda’s cabin looks great!
Gerda’s cabin looks wonderful. I know she’ll love it. You owe Susanne big time for finding your phone.
