A friend and I have been trying to get together to fish for a few months. Finally we made arrangements to meet at the pond. The pond is about halfway between each of our homes. Unfortunately some other things came up so that I could not meet him at the time we planned so I arrived at the pond a few hours later than I had hoped. I knew that he might not still be there, but he was waiting for me. I apologized for being late and he laughed. He had been there for about an hour since he had something come up that made him late.
