Summer Plans

The problem with making plans is that they give you hope for something. I had hoped this summer to go up to Michigan and visit the cabin on Mud Lake. I've not been to the cabin in six years, and I kind of miss it. My wife has never been, nor have my children, obviously, so this would have been a great experience for them. The cabin is quaint, not that big, but it doesn't have to be, it's on a lake in the woods. There's no shortage of exploring and fishing to be done.

Unfortunately, due to our accident last week and the prohibitive expense of plane tickets, it doesn't look as though we're going to be able to make it. I'm very depressed about this - I had my heart set on going this summer since the beginning of spring semester.

In the alternative, I hope to go deep sea fishing with one of my friends from class next month. This is another thing I get really excited about. When you get about 20 miles offshore, you kind of forget that there's a world that you need to worry about. It's just you, whoever's on the boat with you, and the fresh sea air. Not too shabby. If I get to go deep sea fishing, I'll be rather happy. It won't be the same as going up to Mud Lake, but it'll suffice. Cross your fingers. I could really go for some Tuna, Red Snapper, Mackeral, Wahoo, and whatever else might be biting...

WHAT ACCIDENT????????????????

So what's happening since your accident? Was your van totaled? Does everyone still seem to be ok? Are you still driving your boss' car? Have you been shopping yet for a new one?

We haven't heard from the insurance company yet. I've called them every working day since the accident but they've not called me back at a time where I could take their call.

They hopefully have sent someone to at least look at the van so we can get an estimate. If it's not too much, then we have some slight hope of salvaging summer...

I agree, once you're on that water, it's like the world doesn't even exist. You should try diving Steve, it really provides some magical moments...peace and solitude :o)
