Summer's gone - TR

Post by 421sd » Tue Oct 10, 2017 10:35 pm


Busiest 16 weeks of my life in terms of work. 60+ hour weeks, no weekends to speak of. The big job is finally done, down to the mop-up work.

Summer is gone....

Canoe hadn't been wet for months. Loaded up my shit, met the boys at the river. Turned that fucking phone off. For three days.

Cracked open that first beer………..slipped into that first riffle.

Flip flops around the campfire and bass sounds like summer to me!

Thanks man, I dug that.

That fucking alligator —yeah........I was in the WTF camp for a moment.

Perplexing, until I realized it was taxidermy somebody attached to the tree.
