Monday Morning Labor Day Off

Labor Today Hurricane Harvey The Dude

I hope you are having a fantastic Labor Day morning walking on your own sidewalk, away from your cubicle, crowded parking lots, traffic jams and co-workers and bosses who make you crazy. What  a truly f-d up picture the world of labor really is in the US today. Zero opportunities for creative individuals to succeed, an underemployed and underpaid basic labor force, and a country that has spent the last thirty years building itself on the backs of a huge, underpaid illegal population. Chickens are coming home to roost, but that’s not what you want to hear is it … maybe someday I’ll finish this thought …

The Big Lebowski


It is, after all, the day I have set aside for many years; set aside for watching “The Big Lebowski.” After this last election, I may have to add the movie “Idiocracy” to my Labor Day watch list as well. That movie used to be a comedy, but now?


You may notice the toned down the fly fishing focus in the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey. It just seems strange to talk about such small happy things when we have (consumer created) gas shortages, price gouging, shelves emptied of eggs at Wal-Marts, and a lot more pain and suffering to come for our coastal brothers and sisters. I have yet to hear of any organized response from the fly community, or fishing community here in North Texas. If someone wants to enlighten me/us, please feel free to do so. If there is anyone along the Texas Gulf Coast reading this: Tell us what you need, and we will respond. If you were relying on the MSM to keep your plight in focus? Most of them are long gone now, and you could be feeling abandoned or forgotten. Nothing could be further from the truth. Just hand out marching orders, and see what happens. There is a “Contact” form at the bottom of this article. Either comment, or fill out that form and let us know what we can do. I am thinking this is a time for the local fly fishing clubs and their attached communities to shine. What do you think?

Thanks again for showing up today, on your day off no less! I have to head out the door now, and go labor.

    I try and spend as little time on Facebook and Texas Fishing Forum as possible, so if there are organized efforts there – LET US KNOW. I will not seek that information on micro-webs. NOT EVERYBODY has a Facebook account, believe it or not!
