Even Salmon Get Rewarded After Swimming Upstream



Ever have a day that feels like Andy DuFresne's...only you feel like you're crawling upstream toward the prison instead of escaping to freedom?

Well, to quote a different character (John Coffey) who was just trying to make things better in another prison movie (The Green Mile),
"Awful tired, boss. Dog tired."

Both of those movies are great! Tom Hanks is a favorite of mine.

I do know what you mean by "Awful tired, Boss. Dog tired."

Here is wishing better days to you!

Yeah, crawling upstream towards prison pretty much sums it up these days.

Heh... both your quote and youtube are from Stephen King stories. I guess the man knows all about this.

There's a light at the end of the tunnel!!!!!
Take a nap first, then go from there....

Well now that the children have escaped from the cage, maybe you and I should climb in and throw away the key. So glad I bought a big cage!
Best wishes

Well, if it's possible, put those tie-dye besocked feet up and relax a spell. Think cool thoughts, as Satchel Paige once said.

A big, stiff drink. Make it a double.

"crawling upstream toward the prison. . ."

Very evocative expression, Lime. . .

But, so sorry you're so frustrated. Would a {hug} help?

I am so there right now.

(-: hang in there! maybe you will win an Oscar for your performance in Lime's Shawshank Redemption

"Even salmon get rewarded after swimming upstream."

Not necessarily Lime... Some of them get eaten by bears before they ever get to spawn.

Try to steer clear of the bears, okay?

I do feel like that, right now. Yesterday. And the day before that. You have quoted two of my most favorite Stephen King stories, and seeing that clip made me want to see the whole movie again right now. *sigh* I'd better get back to work, looking for work.
