As I was just telling– emailing– Mr. Big Food’s Dad, this is a particularly busy stretch. But we have all learned, over the years, little tricks that help us not only get through, but thrive during these stretches. Big Life & all.
One thing we’ve learned is that when people who know you well offer to help, you should take them up on it.
When Mr. Big Food’s Whole Entire Family was here at the Farm a few weeks ago, I showed Mr. Big Food’s Dad a book I’d recently acquired and had set aside so I would remember to show him.
It’s the ~1,000,000,000 page McClane’s Standard Fishing Encyclopedia and International Angling Guide (1965).
[Somebody remind me to buy tick stuff and be sure we have tweezers in all of the bathrooms.]
He suggested that April would be a very good month to do the Encyclopedia of Fishing. He had reasons. That sounded good at the time. He even offered– and this is key– to help.
I looked at that monstrosity and then I looked at my calendar and then I looked around and I said it just cain’t be done by me. That could not be the C
rappy Old Book of April. But recall, I was offered help, in March.
And so, look forward very soon to Mr. Big Food’s Dad’s very first guest post on fishing. I think I’ll make it a series so you can follow along if that’s all that you are interested in. (I’m here speaking to all of Mr. Big Food’s Dad’s Friends who he has sent over here to Big Food, Big Garden, Big Life in rural mississippi. Thanks, John!)
That’s me many years ago with a Jack Craval (sp?) out in the Gulf. Mr. Big Food’s Dad can fill you in on the details if you are interested.
