Today started out taking my wife and her high school girlfriend to the airport at 4 frickin’ thiry am for their trip to Montana. Day was starting out kind of iffy, but it was to get much better.
I left about 945 am to start delivering fish to our Juneau customers. Most wanted sockeye a few days ago, but we had more coho. Most switched to coho, and we ended up almost selling out everything on hand. And boy howdy, were the coho nice.
Then, I get a call to go fishing Monday and Tuesday. Why not just ask me if I’m interested in a third slice of blueberry pie? Of course I’m going.
Next, I get an email asking if I want to go moose hunting in early Sept – which happens to be my next 2 week “off” period. I call the guy, and he says lets go over to your cabin, do some deer hunting, and talk about it over the weekend. Hell- give me that forth piece of blueberry pie. Don’t want it to go to waste.
I’m thinking it would be hard to have a better day….until I get notice from the Anchorage Daily News. Our legislature just approved sending all of us $1200 each to pay for the high cost of fuel. This, on top of the $2000 each we’re already going to get for the annual Permanent Fund Dividend giveaway. I smell another pie coming out of the oven right now. What a country.
It’s 930 pm now, and past my bedtime, but I might stay up till midnight just to press my luck…..
