Gone fischin’

Hikin’ to the top of a mountain

Drinkin’ water from a cool, clear stream

Watchin’ the sunset and talkin’ to God

And knowin’ He loves me.

                 from “Simple Pleasures” by John Fischer


It’s long overdue … Chandler and I are off on that camping trip we’ve promised each other for a very long time. This announcement was actually ready to go out yesterday, but a Catch business emergency delayed us a day. We will see, but the virus has a way of making everything tentative. 

With or without me, the Catch continues its ministry with Marti available to stay behind (happily I might add*) and field any of your thoughts, questions, or concerns to the volunteer expert who will serve you best.  You can reach Marti at <catchjohnfischer@icloud.com>

I will let you know how well we fare when I meet back up with you next Monday at the Catch. 

Yours always for this journey,


* Marti’s idea of camping is a Holiday Inn with a swimming pool outside instead of inside. 


Gustave Caillebotte, 1877

    I’m with Marti 100%! MY idea of camping is a 42ft. 5th wheel – 2 A/Cs, 2 TVs, king size bed, residential frig., microwave, theatre recliners – pulled by an F250 diesel! I’ll fish, swim, get sunburned, walk til I drop all day long, but at the end of the day I say, “God bless ‘glamping!'” Have a safe, blessed, fun father and son time! Laugh a lot!

    Hey Marti (and Sandie) … my idea of roughing it is being on the third floor and the ice machine is on the second. Tammy

    I’m glad that you are getting away and enjoy God’s wonderful creation!
    Praying that you have a great time and that God will refresh your mind and soul.
