 our get away weekend started a little rocky....
we had a super busy work day....
my paging service that calls my cell phone to
let me know I have messages stopped working...
I called Verizon early Friday morning...
they said it should be resolved by end of day...
well I thought everything was okay....
I was checking for messages....
no problem...
didn't get to leave till almost 7:00 because of work...
we get on the road...traffic is great...
I call to check messages one more time before my son took over...
could not open up my voicemail box...
tried calling my phone number...
you could not leave a voice message...
called Verizon on the road....
spent most of the drive to the lake on the phone...
in the mean time...no customers could leave messages...
we could not access our mail box...
finally I talk to someone that has a clue...
they get my voice mail box set up again...
but still no pager notification...
9:45 pm....we have a voice mail box....
Saturday I get a call from Verizon ....
well someone finally figured out the problem...
hopefully will be resolved today....
 so Hubby and I eat some dinner...
decide to call it a night...set the alarm to get up early for fishing...
we got on the lake by 6:30....
it was cold....in the lower 40's....
but was bundled up....it was a beautiful morning....
steam coming off the lake....
Hubby caught a nice size bass...and crappie...
we spent the day fishing....or relaxing...
Hubby and Rooster took a 2 hour nap...
I went exploring...camera in hand....
 
 for dinner...Hubby cooked us a steak on the grill...
we had baked potatoes...mushrooms with onions and garlic..
and a salad...
took a little nap that ended up being a very long nap...
watched old movies and old TV shows....
got up bright and early on Sunday to fish on the dock...
we didn't get in a rush to do any thing...
we relaxed and took each moment as it came...
we even stayed 3 hours after check out time...
we just got everything packed up for home...
checked out...then went fishing for 3 hours...
I caught 5 perch...
3 back to back...
pulled one off...dropped back in...
boom...caught another one...got it off the line...
put my line back in the water...
boom...fish #3....
all while hubby had gone to the truck to get a drink...
Rooster had a blast...
Back to the real world now...

Sounds like a nightmare with the phone service, but at least you finally got away for some fishing. I don't fish, but I like the atmosphere, so I enjoy the trips to river or lake.

Except for the Verizon issues it sounds like the weekend was perfect.
Glad you got to get away!

Not a good way to start the weekend, but so glad they got it straightened out!!! When my parents were running a business, they just had the direct line, no messaging service. That was easier, except for the part about someone always had to be home to answer the phone...
