Whoa….. Monday again! Sunday, I just finished all the stuff that went into planning this years fishing trip with my old pals. Getting there, the banter, fixing one of the boats and the dock. Oh yes, the fishing, the meals, the packing and cleaning up and the long drive home Sunday from the Northern Ontario island, on the beautiful French River. And it will be over in a flash!
