What a week! :o)



Friday- fished with Dottie.
Saturday- fished with John and Dillon
Sunday- Costco, Sam's, Cabela's and WalMart
Monday- worked
Tuesday- fished with Dottie!

The lawn hasn't been touched in two weeks (not for lack of trying, but we went through one of those raining everyday cycles; the days it didn't, I fished!

We finally ventured an hour south to fish a little lake I had wanted to try yesterday. When we got there we were the only people fishing it; from all the rain the water looked like Mocha...we still caught a few small bass, and learned a bit of the lake. Lots of standing timber in it (lots of lying and floating timber as well; I ripped the sonar transducer right off the back of the hull)!

The rain seems to be holding just west of us again today, so I'm heading out to pick up all the broken (small) limbs and mow before this jungle gets wet again. Tomorrow I'll be putting the transducer back on the boat; Friday will find me running the weekly shopping errands before work. Saturday Dottie is off but I have to work.

I assumed both boys would have plans for Sunday, but Dottie doesn't seem to think so. If they don't, then I'll be grilling steaks and frying mushrooms...

But if they do, you know where to find me!

Wow! That sounds like the perfect week to me. I hope you get a lot more of those this summer. If you ever make it up this way you'll have to bring your boat. There are plenty of fish just waiting for you.

Hiya!

Look at that happy guy! Nothing better than fishing with Grandpa.

Can you send some of that rain our way? Not that we like to mow, but the lawn is turning brown and the baby trees are starting to give up the leaves.

Grilling steaks and frying mushrooms?? My husband's already halfway to your house, and he's got his tackle with him.

I am so envious...the tranquility.

"...instead of just a'wishin'!"

Kinda like Harold Ensley...remember him on Sunday afternoons?

Looks like you guys are having a blast! And hey, with all the rain, even the days when it's not coming down, it's still too wet to mow, so..there ya go.

My son has been in Canada this week on a major fishing adventure with his dad. He'll have lots of fishing stories to share as well when he gets back home.

Enjoy!
