A Day At the Lake #14527
Just ask Jake, there’s nothing like a day off to go fishing and relax by the water. It’s also another great day to be outdoors angling off the dock at Long Gone Lake, the centerpiece of Rock Bottom State Park. When you find yourself spending eternity living in Afterlife, things are pretty good with a great place like this on a sunny summer day.
As usual, a bamboo pole and an old straw hat have the best overall fishing mojo for a day at the lake. When you don’t have all that much left to work with, it’s wise to take along all the lucky charm help you can get. The fish won’t know what hit ’em.
Sporting stylish sunglasses along with that favorite straw fishing hat, Jake holds up his catch with a grin. Of course, there’s the obviously underfed stray cat angling to get his claws on the prize.
With plentiful small fish living in the shade under the dock, Jake has his prime fishing spot right over the side, easy-peasy. It’s one crappy crappie caught after another, although the little fish somehow always seem to run a bit thin. It might take more than two to make a sammitch, so let’s hope they keep biting!
Pretty soon though, it will come time for Jake to go back to work at one of his part-time jobs. Valet Service #14525 shows him working the valet gig at the Highway To Hell Hotel in Afterlife. It’s that place on the right down Rt 666 heading out of town. And he’ll likely have a couple of crappie sammitches in his lunchbox, too.
