Aaaaahhhhhheeeewwweuuuupphhhgghhh! Is that a sound? Cuz I just made it. Don't try to sound it out because you'll just hurt yourself. Monday. Again. Oh well, it doesn't matter anymore, I worked yesterday afternoon. There's no such thing as a Monday for me anymore. I'm not feeling sorry for myself though, because I did have a Saturday. For those of you who wanted to fish with me Saturday and I said "no, I have to work"- I didn't get my office work done until afternoon, at which point I messaged my customer and let them know I'd come Sunday, and went and did what I intend... oh heck, just trust me that I wasn't ditching you. Intentionally, anyhow. And I did work on Sunday.
Well today's cup is again brought to you by Robert Vaughan and Roast & Toast. I'll have to go back and check the suggestion box as to coffees to order. It's time to switch it up a bit. This coffee is good, but I'm ready for something a little more exotic.

If you haven't seen the post, Phil finished his boat. It looks amazing, and because I had to work I turned down an inaugural float last night- what is wrong with me? I'll recover. Phil will too. I have no big plans in the outdoors but I'm sure I'll get out at least once this week. Phil tells me he's floating today with a couple of clients- jealous. I can't wait to hear how the new hull design performs. Initial tests were positive, but it's always nice to get it out on a river and give it a good run. What I didn't mention in the post is that this boat weighs less than 200 pounds- two men can lift it rather easily in fact, so it may weigh closer to 150-160. Try and do that with a Hyde. There is of course a place for bigger, heavier drift boats, but these are designed for our smaller rivers up North.
|just one more photo, I can't help it.|
Well, I've lingered at this far too long, and I have a long day, long week ahead. I'll leave you with one last photo from the weekend.

Have a great week. I'll try to have a post up tomorrow about the smallmouth and carp fishing on Lake Michigan. It was fantastic, and for more reasons than just the fishing.
