Saturday 12/331/2011 New Year's Eve Day

I have sat here basically lazing off all morning long.  No desire to do anything since I am going to spend the entire day and night over at my friend's house - though that may change, not sure.  I kinda like coming home to my bed at night.

Mary wants me to come over at 2:00. We were talking last night and I was talking about my son's and I's intended fishing trip this coming year - probably in June I am guessing will be a good time.  She immediately asked if she could go with us.  This girl is more of a Tomboy than anything, she always has been.  If a guy can do it, she can too.

She has a friend who is totally into fishing and she wants us to go over there and visit with him this afternoon. I was like, gee, there is no rush, doesn't have to happen right away, but that's the way she is.  The guy is an apparently walking computer brain when it comes to fishing, tackle, lures etc etc etc.  I would like to get a bit better handle on this deep sea fishing scenario before I go over to San Diego again. It would be cool to get to know what kinds of lures work with what fish and also to learn how to properly tie the correct knot on the lure itself.  I don't need to go out buying expensive rods and reels, that stuff can be rented since we don't do it that often.

Anyway, I said sure she can come, bring her kids, too.  She said one would like to, the other would not.  Well, whatever makes them happy, I can't pay any of their way anyway so she is going to have to deal with that on her own.  I offered to pay the gas there and back; hotel and food, but not the boat fee and the tackle rental fees - she in turn offered her Suburban to take down there instead of my car.  I have a large car, yes, but it doesn't have near as much room as a Suburban!

Ummm, anyway.  Time to get ready to leave.  Taking my laptop and mobile broadband with me.  I think they have wifi over there, but doesn't matter when I can bring it with me, lol.

Later.
