A few days ago my sweetheart bought a new-to-him little fishing boat from one of his co-workers. This has long been a dream. A little boat so he can get away from his routine schedule occasionally, relax and enjoy fishing. He has been very busy over the past few days making things 'just right' for the first excursion in his boat. Supplies have been gathered, the license has been purchased, and plans are made. We will leave today to travel about an hour and a half from our home to a lake where my sweetheart hears the fishing is good. We will travel up Mt. Hood a ways and camp beside the lake in our trailer.My sweetheart will be out on the lake early each morning in search of hungry fish. Around breakfast time he will return to the trailer where I will be waiting to hear of his early-morning adventures.
I am considering whether or not I want to buy a fishing license and join him throughout the day. He has installed a comfortable seat for each of us in the boat. I might drop my line over the side of the boat, sit back and enjoy a good book. Until my pole begins bobbing with activity that requires my full attention.Could it be that I will catch the most fish and have the best fish stories by the time we return home? No matter what happens I'm sure I will have much to tell in a few days.
