When All Else Fails...

I'm going to the lake this weekend.
A friend of mine has rented a cabin and planned a charter fishing trip, where she and her adult son and his girlfriend will angle for striper bass, while I stay at the cabin reading by the water's edge.
I wish fishing interested me but it doesn't.
It's hot, buggy, stinky and if successful, entails too many entrails.
What does interest me is getting far away from the city, enjoying the breeze over the water and cooking whatever they catch...as long as it's filleted and not too creepy.
Here, come with me for a moment:

Y'all have a good weekend.

I love the wordplay:

"...entails too many entrails."

wild...a good frined of mine has spent pretty much ever New Years' on Lake Buchanan at a cabin outside Tow for the last decade...

Your friend must be a helluva manly man. Tow is one rugged little town.

tow texas...one road in...one road out.

yeah...i'm not sure that he'sbeen there in the last couple of years...as of late, he's settled into a nice life of making music compilations (Danny Smack Productions), hangin out in Emerald, WI with the new wifey (wonderful woman...) several animals (dogs, cats, etc...), and collecting even more Grateful Dead shows (1330 at last count).

funny small world, though.

actually, he's a transplant (ex-diabetic with new kidneys and pancreas as of 10 years or so ago)...and doesn't come off as a 'manly' man at all...he's far too nice...and intelligent...for the likes of tow.

It is a small world.
Your friend might be far too nice and intelligent for a place like Tow- but the question is, does his vehicle have Truck Nutz?
