The Cruise

Hank, overworked and underpaid, is trying his damnedest to save a rundown cattle ranch in Central Texas. It is a long on work, short on help, situation.

In a developing drought, his wife and daughter decide he needs an ocean-going cruise to cure his frazzled nerves and horrid disposition. If he hadn't traveled a good deal in the army, and if his young ranch hands had some notion of work and accountability, it might have sounded good. But he'd seen all the world he wanted and the millennials he hired have no work ethic at all.

It took a dying relative and distraught wife to convince him to consider the cruise. Always fixing things, he spent hours figuring how to make the cruise useful and effective.
