Is there anything else I can help you with?

Here I am, just getting warmed up explaining my problem to the Support Agent and I hear the dreaded words: “Is there anything else I can help you with?” I feel like the Ralph Fiennes character in the movie In Bruges. Ralph has a thing for smashing inanimate objects.

Fishing Opener 2021

Weather for this entire spring has been like living on the equator. Every day is 58 degrees, partly cloudy, a few rain showers and brutal wind. It’s been that way for a month. I’ve always thought that living in a place where the weather is the same from day to day must be boring. How do you even begin to talk to strangers if the weather isn’t a suitable topic?

But SATURDAY was a different species altogether. Waking was cold, but it got warmer and warmer until it ended up right up there in the hot category. I even sought the shade in front of Donna and Craig Roesler’s when I found them out repairing their dock and stopped in for a chat. Not much better than boat meetings on the lake and talking to friends.

I actually got sunburned. Poor winter-wrinkly skin. Hasn’t seen the light of day since last September. Annnnd I didn’t catch anything. It’s usually handy to have a fishing rod when one is fishing. I packed ALL the essentials, but forgot my rods? But I had a nice long cruise down the lake. I did go back to the house to retrieve the wayward rods, but meanwhile, the wind came up and when I arrived at my lucky Walleye Spot, the anchors wouldn’t hold.

The Cubs were playing an afternoon game, so I decided to watch that instead of battling the breeze. There’s always another day to fish.
