The Long Wait begins on January 2nd. The rope swing will hang lifeless through January, February, March, April and most of May, almost 150 days. Enduring frigid cold, deafening silence and complete isolation, the rope swing will yearn for laughing children, splashing water, barking dogs, the whirring of spinning reels, the kerplunk of the fishing lure, and the relaxing purr of a trolling motor. Whether the rope swing is being used or just stands as witness, the company is always welcome.
Uggh, the long wait!
Thought for the Day: The only security of all is in a free press.
