That’s the view from our campsite this Prez Day weekend at Daingerfield, TX. The big rain-out wasn’t as fierce as expected, and although windy there was plenty of fishing and boating and hiking happening. Just looking out at the lake while sippin’ a cold one is a good activity too. Sure we were wired in to the world, had tv and wi-fi, but I turned off my phone most of the time, and paid no heed to social media of any form. It feels like letting the air out of a balloon, or a kettle finally steaming in release. You want to reach for that phone and check-in, but then catch yourself and say “why bother?” Then you feel a bit more in control. Maybe a little freer? Besides, the wife was in contact with the kids should anything important arise. The only thing of any import to me most of the weekend was catching fish. A whole lot of ’em! By golly they were just leapin’ into the boat! I could’ve caught ’em with a paper clip. Oh and the monster that got away….what? C’mon, you know I wouldn’t lie to ya!
