shooting the breeze: snake river vacation

The author hoists a trophy from a lazy vacation on the Snake River.

Sometimes having no plans are the best plans of all.

Ask the experts — whoever they might be — and they can tell you, we live in stressful times. I could mention the laundry list of issues plaguing us as a whole, but no one but the good Lord himself knows your problems better than you. The best thing to do is to take a timeout for yourself.
