Aaauuuuughhhuuuaaauuughhh. Yawn, stretch, scratch repeat. Where's the coffee? Monday again? How does this keep happening.
Well, the biggest news I have is that I finally bought a laptop, my first one, which hopefully will make my blogging more versatile. I won't have to be chained to my desk at home, can drink my coffee downstairs looking out my glass wall at the river and marsh while I do this. It will also help me to blog on location. I'll see how versatile a tool I can make this thing. My blog suffers from the fact that I only keep abreast of technology as far as I absolutely have to, and then I get right back to the water. It's a delicate balance- time spent on the water hopefully generating content, and time spent getting brushed up on the tech stuff so that I can generate content. The outdoor bloggers conundrum.

I spent the weekend downstate not fishing, but I did end up with a laptop. I have several writing projects underway outside of this blog- I'll keep you posted if they make it into public circulation, or just post them here. With a blog you can't go wrong. My first piece published (by The Cedar Sweeper magazine) was written for this blog and at the last minute I submitted it on the off chance that Chuck would want it- he did. I'll still post it, once the next issue of The Cedar Sweeper comes out. As I was saying, with the blog, I can write these pieces and either post them or submit them. If they get rejected I can still post them. Not that I'm posting all the junk here (there may be room for debate on that) but that no matter what there's an outlet for all the drivel leaking from my mind.
Well, it's time to get this up and get going. Lot's of work to do this week. By the way, being able to blog while staring out my window has already paid off, as I got to see the cranes lift off from their overnight roosting spot in front of the house, and three half-grown raccoons trundled across my seawall while I was typing this. I'll have to put the big lens on the camera and keep it close from now on.
Let's get after it.....
