Got an invite from AJ to pee off the porch again.
Can’t say no to that.
Hit the road mid-morning Friday and arrived just a little bit after lunch to see Joe playing badminton with Wayne’s grandkids on the front lawn. And AJ mentioned that they had a nice tea party in the backyard earlier. Guess I missed out.
Headed to the back porch and started pounding beers and puffing cigars. It was good catching up with Joe and Wayne. We were entertained by the girls the entire time.
Got me a kick-ass crab tat:
After a few beers, we decided it was a good time to fry up some egg rolls and sample some of the fine beverages that AJ brought:
And you know, mix it with 7up, as you do:
The sun was setting so we headed to the river to see if there were some activity:
There were a few splashy rises on the far bank so AJ rigged up his rod and started flogging the water.
That water was cold and deceivingly fast. Waders are for pussies:
Them fish were still out of reach so AJ tried to wade closer. Fast water, slippery rocks and few beers….sometimes the river wins. AJ made it back to shore fully soaked. But he ain’t no quitter. So the jacket and shirt came off and off he went again.
Round 2 goes to the river again:
Got his footing back and started casting:
But that damn seam on the far bank is even further upstream now so he attempted to get a little closer.
Round 3 goes to the river…again…
Lost a wading boot in the process but managed to make it back to shore. “Fuck these fish”
So we went back to the cabin. Build a fire to warm up, ate more egg rolls and sipped on some fine beverages.
Then AJ presented me with this. “Some of the ladies at work gave it to me. I have no use for it.”
Huh….so I sent a pic to my wife.
“ Where did you get that? I don’t know what the fuck that is but let me know what how it feels after you use it.”
And with that, we called it a night. Ready for the next day’s adventures….
