Gone Fishing

by Stephen J. Gertz

The author on vacation, 2010.

I'll be off on a brief vacation this week, just like last year, wearin' breeches, waistcoat, full-brimmed hat, and takin' my rod n' reel, and a good book to the ol' fishin' hole.

I'll read the book then use it as bait to lure the four-eyed set with fins lookin' for somethin' to peruse.

See you next week.

  1. Ever the trendsetter. I see the return of the ruff is imminent. Enjoy your well-earned break!
