Pour that man a whiskey


Poppy has a woodshop in the backyard.
Refrigerator, recliner, cable, stacks of John Wayne movies.
Sawdust everywhere.
One summer, several decades ago,
I hit puberty and Mom hit menopause.
Poppy hit the backdoor.
We haven't seen him since.

We lived in the deep woods and one morning, I came up from the shop and found my wife loading my ALICE pack, fly rod, & rifle. She said I was leaving with the dogs, she was gonna kill someone that day and didn't want it to be any of us.

Hot flashes plus PMS = short life span for husband & hounds! ;o)

J, my ex-father-in-law was in the same situation, that is "pretty much swimming in estrogen."

Yup, 4 sisters and a Mom all having "shark week" together, my brother and dad and me stayed in the garage a lot... We always figured and still to this day that girls and women need a place far away and secluded until the bewitching week has ending.
