The answer is no, but I'm finding that if I don't start My Monday Morning Coffee piece on Friday, it doesn't get finished. I woke up yesterday and said "Oh crap" and got typing, almost got it finished, then got up this morning, realized I'd forgotten that I had to take my cousin to work (sorry Mike) and was going to be late for my own job. Things are a little off-kilter here in FR Land right now, and will be for a few weeks yet. My grandmother is dying of cancer, she's 90, and it won't be long now. She has been an anchor for this family for a long time, and one of the steadiest parts of my life.
I'm also trying to wrap up my current job and working long hours and weeks. I know, you all have jobs, you don't need to hear it. But it does absorb a lot of my energy and time. I want to give special thanks to Robert Vaughan and Brian Kozminski for their fierce loyalty to my Monday Morning Coffee piece. And Sanders, who contributed a cup.
So, as I've threatened a few times here, it may remain sporadic here at Fontinalis Rising. All is not lost. I have some projects and trips in the pipeline that I'm very excited about. Cameron Mortenson from The Fiberglass Manifesto is on his way to Michigan, and rumor has it we may get some fishing in. I'll be doing some "research" soon on hopper fishing. I have two huge trips coming up later in the year that should be epic. And there is still so much to get to here in Michigan. Brookies on the Upper Tahq, Sultry Summer Largemouth, Pepto Pike and night fishing for browns. September will kick off my bid for the King(s)!
I'll leave you with some photos from the weekend.
