Thread: Lost In Purgatory

  1. #1

    Default Lost In Purgatory

    I am blessed to still have a job and am indeed thankful but, I have been transferred to South Texas. South Texas as in 100 miles South of San Antonio to a small town of about 500 folks. There are no trees, seriously NO Trees only shrubs that they call mesquite

    I cry for awhile then run to the bathroom to throw up...I need a hug.

    I was going fly fishing until my wife suggested it, now I can't tell who is outsmarting who!

    Being "one with nature" requires a knowledge of what animals are living nearby and a weapon of sufficient magnitude to give you at minimum an equal chance of survival. No one has an invisible aura that animals can detect and sense your good intentions.

    Dave: In this economy I can see where you would be happy to have a job, but that location sure doesn't sound very good. Here is a BIG HUG!!!

    You will know when you are in that bad place. There will be nowhere to fish. Then your being unfairly punished!

    Hey Dave,

    I sent you some Rep bud, that's as close to a hug as I can do for you. Is this a long term thing?

    Anywhere can be the land of great expectations, broken dreams, or paradise found, it's all up to you.

    Big hug pal!! I narrowly escaped that fate. But after 5 months of no work I got lucky. Hang in there, It can only get better right? Eventually you'll end up someplace better, assuming your not in a correctional facility.

    Dave,

    That's exactly what happened to the author of this book;
    [ame="http://www.amazon.com/The-Sunfishes-Jack-Ellis/dp/1558213562/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1335443429&sr=1-1"]Amazon.com: The Sunfishes (9781558213562): Jack Ellis: Books@@AMEPARAM@@http://ecx.images-amazon.com/images/I/51B5QE0S8PL.@@AMEPARAM@@51B5QE0S8PL[/ame]

    He found a new passion in chasing (surprising challenging) bluegill and shellcrackers in the local ponds in Texas. You should check it out... it could be therapeutic! I have this book and found it an enjoyable read.
