Being “over the hill” is much better than being under it!

Puff Pant Puff Pant Puff Pant Puff Pant ……out for a jog with fit better half…..Puff Pant Puff Pant Puff Pant…..along the canal tow path…..Puff Pant Puff Pant Puff Pant…..I feel bad, my legs are all wobbly……Puff Pant Puff Pant Puff Pant…..I look at the canal looking for places I would stop and fish if I were after Pike….Puff Pant Puff Pant Puff Pant……I think I’m going to die, my chest hurts and my face must be red…..Puff Pant Puff Pant Puff Pant…”come on come on your slowing down” yells my better half……Puff Pant Puff Pant Puff Pant……There are two guys in front of me, walking towards me, carrying fishing rods…… Puff Pant Puff Pant Puff Pant……..need to keep going…….Puff Pant Puff Pant Puff Pant…lucky bastards, using plugs as well….Puff Pant Puff Pant Puff Pant…..we draw within looking distance of each other…..there is a moment!!!!! A moment of clear headedness as our eyes met!! A telepathic connection if you will……….

# you should be out fishing mate, do you realise that you look as if you are about to fall over any moment……look at me strolling along ….will probably be catching me some nice Pike later….take a photo and smoke a cigar!!

% aha yes my good man, I am actually a brother of the angle, but I seem to be carrying a slight gut at the present moment in time I am not really one of these obsessive fitness freaks…..I understand the call of the wild and the way the water hypnotises you as it glitters in this springiest evening sun.

# and the call tonight is strong brother, the water is warming and the Pike are moving, enjoy your run

% yegads, I must continue my run and not slow down or I may be drawn into a fishy conversation……may you catch plenty of large Pike, and may you have the same amount of cuts on your fingers as before.

Puff Pant Puff Pant Puff Pant Puff Pant Puff Pant Puff Pant Puff Pant Puff Pant ……….that’s me ten minutes into the jog, only 20 more to go Puff Pant Puff Pant Puff Pant Puff Pant…

Two guys out for a fish in the local canal….after Pike….lovely night. Walking between spots a women jogs by and then a bloke. Bloke looks at them with a pained expression and then jogs on………….one guy turns to the other and says “that guy should relax more……should take up fishing”
“true” says the other!!
