I painted an old fish camp dock many gray hairs ago, its slips all filled with aluminum boats, and called it “The Cows are Lying Down” because the fish don’t bite when the bovines aren’t standing.
I don’t know what the hell to expect if the cows are lying with the fishes, but that’s what they were doing when I passed through the Midwest last week.…Continue

I am so happy. I am so happy and intoxicated in my sunny back yard with salmon on the grill and kids in the tiny pink $7.00 pool. I'm full of Three Olives vodka and glad for my life, my beautiful children on Mother's Day, but at the same time I'm thinking ahead to July and my fellow Sixers. I'm missing you and anxious to drink Three Olives with my "pack". I'm staring down at my red painted toes, wondering how hot it will be in Blowing Rock in July. I'm imagining sitting on the deck of…Continue
