Gone Fishing

Louis Armstrong’s song Gone Fishin‘ goes something like this: Gone fishin by a shady wady pool/ I’m wishin’ I could be that kind of fool / I’d say no more work for mine (welcome to the club)/ On my door I’d hang a sign/ Gone fishin instead of just a-wishin. Of course, the phrase “gone fishing” eventually meant a way of getting away from the humdrum, routine of life and doing something interesting. It apparently got its origins from the sign that a shopkeeper puts at his door – that he is taking a little break from the normal routine. It’s Friday night and the weekend’s here. We all deserve a break from a week of work [or school] and the wearisome drill! Photos above are of Jayvee Cepeda.
