This week I have alot of deadlines to meet. Some of them real important, others, I just make-up myself. I like to get stuff done early so, when a magazine editor says it's due the 15th of the month, I want it sent-in a week early. That way, if it's all done and no changes are required, I get to goof off; that's what I do best.
For me goofing off means throwing on a backpack full of cameras and hanging out in the wild.
It's been quite a long time since I've loaded up the pack and harnessed the dogs to go out for an eleven or twelve hour day. That's not work to me, it's relaxation. The work starts when you get home and download the cameras.
It's Golden Week in Japan, right now so, tomorrow's not a good day for me to goof off.
Everybody's off and a frazillion Grandkids will probably drag me to some beach for a party; happens every year. I need to go to a beach party like I need another hole in my head. Fighting a cold for the past week and think it's almost whipped. The oldest Granddaughter started talking about the beach party today and I told her, "Grandpa's got a cold and can't go." She understood. She knows exactly what to do. She'll send her three year old sister to get Grandpa to go to the beach tomorrow. All she has to do is look in my eyes, smile and say, "Grandpa, let's go". Then, I can't refuse. They know that. It's a thing girls have.
Witchcraft, I tell you, it's Witchcraft and they're born with it !
