A day, when you know you have a thousand things to do, but just can't
A day, when you spend sorting screws, making neat piles of used sand-
paper, sharpening screwdrivers, re-rolling balls of string...ANYTHING
but what is supposed to be done today?
Bombeck called this constructive procrastination.
I think the only energy I have today, is to go to pay for my fishing
license, make a trip to bait store, and see what lurks in the waters
of the St. Clair river.... 5 minutes from my house. (I'm up-river from
Detroit, the fish are okay here.)
...it would only be a couple of hours...

Been a while sence I've heard "St. Clair", was at Barksdale many many ('55-'57) years ago. Was a great place, too many people now. For me anyway.

If you are below the Blue Water Bridge, across the river from the Port
Huron Yacht Club, you would be part of that bunch of Canuck fisherman
I would totally piss off, when I would spend at least an hour trying
to get a 30 ft sailboat with a 10HP diesel, up river into Lake Huron.
Had to say within 10 ft of the Canadian shore line to take advantage
of the back current created by the swirling waters under the bridge.
As a result, fishermen had to pull their lines.
Anything more and the boat would come to a complete stop.
Great reason to belong to the Sarnia Yacht Club, if you wanted to sail
in L Huron.
Wood working content.
Had lots of wooden goodies I made for the boat on board.
I recognize that type of navigation. Friends brother-in-law had a 6
meter at PHYC.
Lived in Port Huron (or Port Urine) from 1940 till entered the Navy in
1961and still had family there until a couple of years ago. Now
except for one remaining brother in St Clair Shores the family has
migrated to TX, WV and AZ.
Just walked in, again, from sanding six drawers I built yesterday, started
at around 6 this morning.
I too, am ready to go fishing, right after drinking this cup of fifth cup of
coffee ... BUT the youngest just informed me (on the way back from filling
up her tank to the tune of $47) of the course book requirements for summer
school at U of H, and I just last week paid ($781.29) for tuition and
Since Education has become a profit center, I think I'll just go back to
Ahhhh yesss.. fishing...
Had I kept what I caught, it would have come out to $600.00 per
I didn't bring a jeweller's loupe to try to figure out what it
was...let's just say it stood vertically on the hook.
I should have taken a picture...it has a macro setting.
I was listening to my XM radio (ear buds) whilst fishing..and it was
on the blues channel (74 IIRC).. and old BB King tune came on with a
great line it:
"baby..you're built from the grouuuunnnd up!"
I'm easily amused these days..
I hear you loud and clear on the education costs. Angela is working on
her NP ticket...

If the fish prefer Detroit to where you are, you might want want to
re-think that. ;-)

My mother wants me to move back to MI - about 40 miles west of
Detroit. She thinks I should be thrilled at the prospect. I think I
have done nothing so evil that I should deserve such severe punishment.
