Hello July! Can we go on vacation yet?

These are the only things I have been doing. Fishing, Camping, Swimming and Boating. And of course, reading.

It has been a hot month so far. We had like 7 days of rain that let the mosquitos breed, so that was fun. And by the fourth it was hot and humid. We were spending a week at the lake with the grandparents and that turned into one night and a trip to the emergency room. It was also the last tent camping we will ever do!

I do not fish. I eat fish. OU Boy fishes. with this lure I bought him. A treble hook? Well, he was reeling his line in when one of the barbs caught him in the crotch of his shorts. I reached over to grab it and it slid right in my finger down to the bone and then deep in my thumb. Picture my thumb attached at one end and his crotch at the other end. No one could move at all without pain. So off to the emergency room we went. The lady signing in before us took one look and let us go first.

There was a lot of chuckling going on and several people stopped in just to look at it. In the end they stuck a needle in and numbed that sucker good. I told him just to do what he had to do and do not tell me. So when he was finished and I looked my thumb looked like the Hulk! Except orange from the Betadine. The doctor asked if we wanted the lure back. WE did not. We left with my thumb intact but OU Boy had to leave with a hole in his pants letting everyone see his festive boxer shorts.

We decided we are not fishermen or tent campers. Thank goodness for the a/c in the RV. So we sold all the camping equipment and bought a boat. Makes perfect sense, right?

My TBR pile got way out of hand. Now it’s doing well at 19. Kindle books. Maybe 20 physical books. But we lived through the vaccine, the fish hook, and the rain, so I think we are going to be good.

We had a big family Fourth of July picnic at the farm. The youngest was 6 weeks and the oldest was 90. It was a great day that ended with no injuries.

Finally all of my fingers are well now so I’m back to the things I do best. Read and whine.

Happy July!

  6. […] Hello July! Can we go on vacation yet? How do you know you’re not really a fisher-type person or a camper? Well, you go on a camping fishing vacation until it ends at urgent care… […]
