Upon Still Waters

This is a very large, very nice lake that is only about 6-8 miles from my house. I'm embarrassed to say that I rarely go down there but I usually don't have anyone to go with me. And I'm usually working too much to have time but I took Mouse by there yesterday while we were just out cruising around.
Most of the fall color has faded but it's still very pretty. I need to get my fishing license and visit here more often.
Did I say that I've got to go back to work this week? Darn it! But, I'll make a little more money to buy some more siding with anyway.

there is a huge lake near us that I rarely go to unless visitors are getting the tour---what is it? right at our door and sooooooooooo far away---no fun to go alone---I have yet to get on the river and have lived here 5 years now, mate not interested and no canoe yet---guess it will take a visitor to knock me into the river unless I muster the oomph to do it myself, where is that little red hen when I am looking for her?
by the way, I loved the humorous bit you did on evaluating men---spot on! and Mouse looks like he has a good strong back, too.
am so impressed and inspired by your construction, the house is great! and hope you have a nice, rakish scar from the plumbing excitement.

It is discovering a small lake like that that I am moved to slip my canoe in and go for a quiet paddle around it.

There are always little treasures of nature to see and hear to enhance the occasion.

Hey, speaking of work...

I can't remember if I told you for sure or not, but the church does want you to do their stained glass window repair when you can.

I love the water!

Hey Erin! thanks! glad you enjoyed them.

Hey Page! yeah, i don't know why we rarely go down to the lake but it is not much fun by yourself.
thanks and yes, Mouse's back is quite strong; have to get a close up.
i do have a slight scar on my lip! don't know if i'd classify it as rakish but i'll have to come up with some really good, outlandish story about how i got it.

Hey Philip! yea, i would like to cruise around this lake in a small boat.

heyLinda! no, you didn't say but okay! just have to get time.

Hey Jim! yeah! and i hear it's some real good fishing on that lake too. very clean water.
