This week my family and I will be headed to Oregon for a vacation. Should be back to the UP in a couple of weeks. We will attend a wedding at a vineyard near Salem, then off to Mt. Hood, where we are renting a beautiful log cabin almost in the shadow of that great mountain. We will hike and loaf; though for myself the loafing may be more my style.
Was at camp for several days. Mowed the lawn; er, maybe I should call the yard what it is, a weed bed. Anyway, it got mowed. Keeps the black-flies and mosquitoes down. Or, at least that is my theory. If the UP has one thing in plenty that we could use less of, it’s biting bugs. Damn things.
Fixed my leaky 14 foot pram. It isn’t an expensive high dollar bass boat, but I seem to catch a few fish with it. It isn’t purty, but if you don’t mind a little bit of water seepage it does the trick.
While at camp I sometimes frequent the local VFW for a snort. The Covington VFW is open to the public, if you call the general group of locals, maybe 5 or 6 old coots like me the public. Whiskey always tastes better when your swapping lies with the lumberjacks and truckers that haul the heavily loaded logs to the mills. By the way please drink your whiskey neat the way God intended.
Till I get back. Have a good one and toast to a better tomorrow.
