Perfect Plan

A perfect plan for the one week in thirteen

A couple months ago I was seating in an airplane at the Detroit Metro Airport headed for Brazil on another business trip, and as more and more passengers boarded I could not avoid noticing a T-shirt that one of the passengers was wearing.

I had never met the gentleman before and I doubt that we will ever meet again, but I asked if I could take a picture of his T-shirt as it really reminded me of how my weeks should be.

The (sad) reality is that most people need to work 12 weeks to be able to enjoy and/or afford one week of vacations, and I believe these four weeks are so important because they do not happen every week.

To be very sincere, I will sharpen my knives, clean my guns, buy new gear and plan a hunting trip during a normal work week's nights, so I can savor every minute of a vacation week actually hunting.

I am scheduled for another bird hunting week in Uruguay in a couple months, and a lot of planning is already happening, but I still like the T-shirt.


  1. Very nice T-shirt! Any chance you know where one can get the same?

  2. The sad reality is......anyone that has a job should be thanking God. I've been out of work almost two years....can't afford to go hunting or fishing.

  3. Ha! I love it. I would be interested in one of those as well.
