Vacation Mode

First things first, I am officially on vacation.
There's nowhere to go because the Earth is still closed but I don't have to go to work. 
Technically, I haven't gone to work since March but let's not get technical because I am on vacation. 
Now, blogging friends, I like you a lot. 

or was it

But I will probably take the week off because I don't know if I told you but I am on vacation. 
So that's it from yours truly.
Pretty exciting, huh.
It has been a long week trying to getting everything squared away at work before I start my vacation. 
Did I mention anything about a vacation yet? 
Mrs. Shife just gave my to-do list for the next 9 days:

Second things second is a sentence I never typed before but, hey, 2020. 
Here are a few ideas we have while I am on vacation. 
Yep, you heard that right, I will be taking some time off.
I swear I thought I mentioned that earlier. 

We might do some more fishing.
I understand why the early bird gets the worm.
The mid-afternoon bird gets heat stroke and sweat stains.

We might hit the river because these guys really like it. 
Look how happy they are and I wouldn't want them to be unhappy.

Third things third, here are a few fun images I found on my desktop as I was cleaning up my computer to get ready for my vacation. 
By the way, I will be out next week. I don't know if I mentioned that. 

Frizzle has never dropped a ball in our cup but I do believe she would if she was pissed enough. 

Well, that's all folks. 
I'll talk to you when I get back.
Thanks for stopping by and don't miss me too much.

I will persevere. I will keep moving forward. I will be the stream.

    Happy holidays for your family.
    It is also my pleasure to play with water in the river. Greetings from Indonesia.

    We'll be here when you get back.


  14. Happy Vacation to you and yours!

  15. Have a nice vacay, perhaps bake yourself a wee Tart with a lovely Crust?

  16. Water and fishing sounds like a good idea. Got to beat the heat somehow.

  17. Looks like a relaxing time with the family. Enjoy it. We are going back to a campsite on a beach that we hit a few weeks ago. It's good to get away from the damn house. We have all been cooped up too much. Got to enjoy that nature fun.

  18. A friend published a bunch of photos of his family backpacking trip into the Sawtooths today and I was envious (even though I just got back from the mountains of Virginia for the second time this summer). Enjoy your "staycation"
