As I write this missive, I am kicking back at a resort in northern Minnesota. Yesterday was one of the best fishing days I’ve ever had (caught my limit of really big crappies), but the evening was topped off by a nasty thunderstorm that has knocked out power to the area. So today, I am letting the blustery weather blow itself off and talking with my buddies of 20-some years. We are telling the same stories we have offered every year. We all know when to laugh or be amazed. It is a welcomed respite from a world in which the stories are not predictable and the chances to laugh all too rare.
Thursday I will be back in the real world, but until then I will eat fresh fried fish and listen to the wind as it blows the clouds away.
