Didn't make it on the water. Strung a rod, loaded the gear and tied on the canoe. Took it off and unloaded twenty minutes later. Did a good job both on and off, in and out. There's a pleasure to be found in doing something right. A good time was had by all. For the time being my place is at home. Don't want to go into more detail than that.
Hadn't been up north in over two months and the property had grown shaggy. Needed a haircut and a sprucing to make it looked tended and loved. Also'd keep the evil ones away. Mowed and cleaned. Throw in a few hours of evening reading and it was a good most-of-a-day.
