Sad to say but I fucked up pretty good today. I had told styxchaser I would meet him at the Cerritos swap meet to buy a rod and maybe a reel or two Sunday morning at 0930.

But I have had some medical issues in the past 4 weeks and have had 3 surgeries. Just like this morning I find myself awake and in pain.

So I took a couple of pills and went back to sleep. I completely blew off the appointment and woke up at 1100.

I tried calling him but he was on the way home to Ojai......and probably not very happy with me. I told him I would drive to him....but he was done with me.

Anybody who knows me would tell you I honor my word. I would never do this to someone. Ever.

I apologise styxchaser. Sincerely. Let me know how I can fix this.

All you can do is apologize... Shit Happens... I'd probably be somewhat pissed too, but I'd probably get over it (esp. if you're trying to make it right)

I don’t think there is anything to be forgiven for here. You have to take care of yourself and your health first, without that there’s no point in buying anything

If he can’t accept that then it’s on him. I wouldn’t want to buy from someone that handles things like that. Props to you for going above and beyond to make it right. Get well

Sheldon will be okay but Dusty and Cricket might be pissed for awhile...they thought you were bringing treats. Send some Milkbones in the mail to them and all will be forgiven.....it's a fishing rod for cryin out loud and like Dan said your health comes first...take it from the cardiac kid :)

I am not upset with Chuck. I understand that things happen and have spoken to him. He seems like a good guy and this is a "no harm, no foul" situation. Chuck is far more upset about this than I am. It will all work out.

TO CHUCK. Please don't worry about this. I am a senior and have been having recent health problems myself that I finally figured out are side affects from my BP medication. I left a message on your phone last night and will call you again later.

I am sorry if Chuck thought I was "done with him" when he called me on my way home from Cerritos, but I was a passenger in a friend's truck and couldn't turn back to meet him. Also couldn't hear very well over the others talking.

Ojai is not that far
From where? I lived in the Ojai/Ventura area for over 20 years and will probably retire to that area. So let me tell you that is really far and you should not travel, visit, stay or move there. Soule Park is not big enough for all your dogs.

If you are in Anaheim it is about 120 miles to Ojai. I don't want you to drive that far for a fishing rod if you are not well. If you still want the rod, when you are feeling okay let me know and we can work something out like maybe meeting in the SFV.

And YES I will hold the rod for you unless I hear otherwise from you.

Alright man.....then we are good. Sorry to make it sound like you were pissed. I didn't mean that. We will hook up soon.

But again I apologise for not showing up.

And thanks for all the OG support from the peanut gallery....... It's been a tough month

Hey Chuck

Don't feel any pressure about the rod. It's yours and I'll hold it indefinitely for you. I'm going to mark the thread as sold, but it is to you. I'll also set aside a couple of those reels in case you decide you want those.

All is good. We both just have to get over our ailments.

Ain't that the truth. Got tomorrow off to fish, got back spasms from yesterday's slugfest at the butterfly. Youth is wasted on the young
