After playing hookey on Tuesday, when I went back to work one of the girls I stock for asked me if I was "one of the felons". I asked what she meant and she said that the company made anyone who was a convicted felon take Tuesday off (with pay) because they couldn't be in the building when Bush was! I told her no, I had a vacation day; I'm not sure she believed me...
Yet I wonder, how many convicted felons are among the appointees in the White House?
The place still smells of sulfur...
Finally though, it's Friday; Dottie is off this weekend, and if the weather cooperates I'll be shaking down the boat tomorrow afternoon or Sunday. We are in a cycle of daily thunderstorms right now (so far no hail or tornadoes), and Sunday they are predicting wind along with the rain, so we'll see how it all works out! I have about half of the reels cleaned, oiled and respooled with fresh line; by the time the weekend is over the rest will be done.
It's been a race; the grass is greener and getting close to needing mowed, and I've been trying to get the boat to the point I can "get it wet" before I have to mow for the first time. Silly, I know, but it's something that never happened even back in the "good old days".
Last Sunday I got the grandkids out to bank fish at the children's pond at our county lake. Before I had the first rod baited the 3 year old was chunking rocks; the wind was up and it was cool that afternoon, mid 50's, so I knew they wouldn't last long. We stayed about an hour and half, and they didn't catch anything, but they did have good time. One of the highlights was a Canadian goose who seemed to think that 3 year old Caleb was a rival for his two "lady friends"; everytime the boy moved the gander raised to his full height, glared and "talked" to him. Had we left him alone, I'm not sure he might not have tried to "herd" him away from his harem!
I haven't uploaded the memory card from the little camera yet, but if there is anything good I'll get them posted Sunday or Monday!
May your weekends be wonderful!
