Fix the Hot Water Heater or Go Fishing?

This morning at sometime a pipe in our hot water heater broke, and water was all over our bathroom and our bedroom before either Patty or I heard it. My alarm was set for 5:40 am, but I woke up and got out of bed at 5:30. It is a rather rude awakening when you get out of bed and put your feet in an inch of water! I had 2 guys showing up at our house at 6:30 am to go surf fishing with me so I had just one hour to get the water turned off and see what was wrong and fix it. It only took me about 5 minutes to determine that fixing the problem was going to take more than an hour and would require several trips to “Home Depot” for parts. I thought, I should skip fishing and stay home and fix this hot water heater. Fortunately I was able to ignore that responsible thought, and go fishing. We fished all day in the surf near Newport, and caught 42 red tailed perch, it was a great day of fishing. We got home at 6:00 pm and I filleted and cleaned fish until 8:00 pm, and then I worked on the hot water heater until 10:00 pm and now I am writing this blog, and then I need to ride my stationary bike for an hour and I will read my Bible, and pray some while I ride. Busy day, but busy is good
