BACK FROM VACATION
By CHARLES V. STANTON
Many of our friends have been asking us about our vaca
tion. We realize, of course, that they're not in the least in
terested and are only trying to be polite. Hut give a person
a chance to talk about his vacation or his operation and
We speak of our vacation particularly, however, because
it was DIFFERENT.
We have no sunburn. We haven't a mosquito bite. We
have no broken bones, no bruises, no aching head, no hang
over. In only one way does our return from vacation follow
the normal pattern we're too tired to work.
But our tiredness docs not stem from overexertion, driv
ing too long or too hard, late hours, or any of the usual
We became exhausted watching the wife work.
You see, after spending a few days at the coast fishing,
without in the least damaging future salmon runs in any of
our coastal streams, we returned home and spent a week eat
ing and sleeping going to bed early and getting up late.
Unfortunately for us, the wife selected that week to give
the house a thorough cleaning one of those peculiar things
that women seem to do so often without any apparent reason
Being on vacation, of course, we were not expected to
help and didn't.
But, now we're desperately tired from watching the wife
work so hard.
We said we didn't help.
That's not entirely correct. We did TRY.
The wife decided she wanted to redecorate a couple of
rooms ceilings, walls and woodwork.
We volunteered to paint the ceilings.
That shouldn't be too much of a job for a guy able to
whip a Bix-ounce flyrod, equipped with a heavy steelhead
reel and double-tapered line, for six and eight hours at a
stretch. The stance and action are closely parallel so we
thought, having had no previous experience in the decorat
Oh well, we had an old uncle by marriage who had a pet
saying that a man was a darned fool if he couldn't learn
something every day.
But after the wife started cleaning up the mess we made
we began to have doubts that we saved her any labor.
Our fishing during this vacation was brief and not too
We traveled a good many miles on a hard boat seat, drag
ging polished pieces of hardware through the water, while
salmon leaped in joyous abandon on all sides. But we don't
have any cops looking for us because we broke any legal
We didn't go hunting. We were invited, but turned down
the invitation, in spite of the fact that we were given a
solemn promise we wouldn't have to pack out a deer even if
we killed one.
The last deer we killed had to be carried out over endless
miles of brush and through thick timber no trail and we
made a vow of never again a vow we have kept religiously.
We found that playing pinochle with the boys at the ffK
club produces just as effective blisters as riding the board ally verv poor,
