Weekends Past & Future

I didn't go fishing last weekend, but intend to change that this upcoming weekend.

See, a lot of things contributed to the weekend off.  

1)  I'm nursing a bum leg, don't know how I hurt it, but it actually started to swell and hurt so bad for no apparent reason that I got a little concerned.  (It's a story for another time but I was hospitalized with a blood clot in my lung about a month before Lilly was born - K.C. loved that.)  Anyway, I went and got an ultrasound on it on Thursday.  Don't worry, it wasn't pregnant, just muscular.

If amputation required a prosthetic, I'd so be rockin' this look.

2)  I received an extortion letter from "FishPorn Quarterly" on Thursday.  Actually since I don't care much for cats, this was no biggie, but worth mentioning.

Oh well...

3)  We added a mutt to the family on Saturday.  Actually a pug/chihuahua mix named Pugsley.  We rescued him from Peaceable Kingdom in Allentown and he's really fitting in well.  He's playful in spurts, but also likes to sleep a lot.  Much like me.  At least the money we dumped at PETCO on a bunch of doggie goodies and new bed was well spent.

Deservedly spoiled already

4)  I work in sports.  While yesterday was the Puppy Bowl, it was also the Super Bowl, so I was working (in standby mode all day) through the late evening.  Go buy a t-shirt & hat.  Cool?  

So with all that said, I not only should, but deserve to go fishing next weekend.  Yeah, I could do the safe thing and go over to Valley, but I'd prefer to fish somewhere besides there for a change.  Somewhere relatively new, but within a 2 hour driving radius might be nice.

I live where that little "A" is on the map.  Not actually inside the little "A", but that's the ballpark.

I'm open to suggestions....

    1. Thanks Brk, things are working out better than anticipated.

  4. It looks like there is large blue area, presumably water, on the right side of that map. You should check that out.

  5. congrats on the rescue dog...I've got 2 great Labs from rescue and think that's such a good way to go with all the available animals.

    1. Agreed. We rescued our two previous dogs as well. So many great animals just looking for homes.

  6. Congrats on the new addition! My dogs really like chewing up my issues of FPQ. If you do renew your subscription make sure to put them somewhere safe like the back of a toilet or something...

    1. I'm going to see if there's a digital subscription to FPQ instead. Can't risk it.

  7. Good luck with the dog!

  8. man, that (black)mail is to good to be true. ^_^
