Those of you that visit my website/blog on a regular basis know that a large percentage of my writing is serious, about serious subject matter, like “The Potholes of Ensenada”, or what’s happening around the world, i.e., my take on politics, the plight of the Palestinian people, or other serious subject matter. Once in a while however, I’ll write something that to me, is just plain fun to write, and hopefully funny for my readers as well. That brings me to “Fly Fishing Still Waters”.
Once, when I was in my early thirties, I was awarded a really nice Fish-Fileting Knife, you know, those really sharp thin-bladed knives especially designed for cutting up fish. Along with that wonderful knife, (that I ended up using to cut and trim the sod that I was putting down in my front yard that summer), they also presented me with a book (which I never read) titled “Fly-Fishing Still Waters”.
These two wonderful prizes were given to me for achieving the highest score during three days of golf, presented to me at a Golf Tournament Dinner & Awards Banquet with about a hundred dudes in attendance (telling me to change to a different sport, and I still laugh about it to this day). The title of the book, “Fly Fishing Still Waters”, came to mind tonight as I was running some water in the kitchen sink to wash out my French-Press Coffee Pot.
Old farts will understand this. When you are an old fart like myself, wither it’s turning on the tap water to rinse out your coffee pot, walking by a water fountain in a mall that is quenching someone’s thirst at that moment you walk by, or……Fly Fishing in a rapidly flowing stream somewhere, you ARE potentially going to piss in your pants. Moral of the story? I’m not at that point yet, but for the rest of you old farts, if you need to wear “Depends”, it’s OK, no one will find out from me. Oh, and that dude that wrote, “Fly Fishing Still Waters”? He must have been an old fart like me, with or without “”Depends”.
My next serious article that I’m still writing, is interesting and I hope thought-provoking as well, asking the question, “What if Trump’s really not crazy, but Sly like a Fox”. Watch for it tomorrow.
