Wednesday Night Ramblings

Is it just me, or is anyone else having trouble getting to the cottage? This is the first year that I can remember when I haven’t had at least several weekends at the camp. I think we may have stayed there a total of 3 or 4 nights since the beginning of April. It seems like there is always one thing or another keeping me from my little paradise by the lake.

It’s for those reasons that I think I want to move there when I retire, at least then I will be there. Then when other things come up, I will know that at least I will be going home to the cottage to sleep at night. I’m not sure if it is an age thing or what, but I also find that I don’t have as much time as I used to, it seems that time flies by. It’s June already, the summer is almost in full swing, and I feel like I have missed Spring….

I hate that. I hate not getting to the camp on the weekends. It’s not natural…it’s not how I have lived my life, at least not until now. My toes first touched the ground at our cottage in 1962 when my Dad carried me into the little lot on the shore of the lake and told his 3 year old son that some day it would be his….and now it is mine, and that 3 year old son is 50 in a week….

That means most weekends since 1962 I have been going to the camp, no wonder I am in withdrawl this year.

OK…I am rambling tonight, maybe it has something to do with turning 50….

  1. The younger generation now uses our camp more than I do. I now just go for the July 4th bbq and the rest of the time my "cottage" is on wheels. I'm a camper person and love to travel during summer season. Hope you get there soon!
