Day 1621 - No time for bloggage

Greetings, Bloggy Dearests!

I'm taking the day off today - meaning - ultra short blog like my ultra-short hair.

Have a great weekend, and a great end of month. Don't forget to pay bills - it's the last day of July. It's a full moon too - so be careful...

Hurry up, August, I have a vacation at the end of the month.

TTFN and have a great day!

Day 1620 - Phantom Friday

Greetings, Bloggy Phantoms -

It's Friday, Hooray!

You know what to do - march in a circle chanting 'Fri-day! Phan-tom! Fri-day! Phan-tom!'

I watched the 2004 movie rendition of 'The Phantom of the Opera' last night that I ordered from Netflix. It was actually very good - better than I expected.

Gerard Butler (of all people!) played the Phantom, and he was wonderful, in addition to being handsome. Emmy Rossum was Christine, and she was also wonderful.

There's a scene set in a cemetery where Christine's father is buried, and Raoul and the phantom have a sword fight.

If you ever watch this movie - pay close attention to the cemetery. The cemetery statuettes are AWE inspiring. Breathtaking.

Did I mention recently that Charlie and I saw the non-musical version of 'Les Miserables' with Uma Thurman? It was also excellent - even Charlie enjoyed it, because it wasn't a musical!

I'm going out to lunch with the gals from work. We are going to the 'Calypso Cafe' - isn't that a great name? They have very healthy, island-style food. Can't wait!

Have a nice weekend everyone! TTFN!

Day 1619 - It's a bird, it's a plane, it's... Sasquatch?

Greetings, Bloggy Sleepwalkers!

I've been meaning to show you the latest innovation in sleeping bags, I've been saving this photo as a reminder to talk about it one day. One day is HERE.

I'm telling you - if Charlie saw someone in one of these things 'ambulating' toward him - that sleepwalker might not make it till morning.

Yes, I know the photo has a funny margin showing - I didn't crop it well enough. Sorry about that.

For us OLDER folks, it reminded me of the days when females could not wear slacks to school, and girls were always worried their slip was showing.

We'd crane our necks till they hurt, trying to look in back of us to see if there was even a hint of white at the bottom of the skirt. (No, slips didn't come in a million colors then either.) If your slip was too long, you would try to gather it up and tuck it into your... unmentionables.

And even earlier than that? Why, there were petticoats, which were one of the scratchiest, most uncomfortable inventions EVER. Don't you agree?

So what do you think, folks? Would you buy one of these walking sleeping bag things? Let's just call it the 'Yeti Bedi'... Ha!

Disclaimer - No chemicals or alcoholic beverages contributed to this rather insane blog. I might have overdosed on Chinese food - does soy sauce have alcohol in it?

TTFN and have a nice Thursday!

Day 1618 - Midweek and Midlife

Greetings, Bloggy Middlers!

Does watching the Food Channel make you hungry?

What about reading recipes and looking at the photos? Same reaction?

Yep, same with me.

I watch the challenges and the throw downs and the cupcake wars and get hungrier and hungrier.

One of my favorite shows on the Food Network is 'Diners, Drive-ins and Dives'. That food (and the way they dig into it) looks AWESOME.

Well, I don't really have anything to talk about today.

Wish me luck in class and 'Go-Go-Gourmet!' (that's a takeoff on Go-Go-Gadget) Now I am trying to invent some kind of superhero chef character - let's make one up soon, shall we?

Day 1617 - Twofer Tuesday

Greetings, Bloggy Twofers!

Here's a Memorial Weekend photo of Savi and her favorite flashlight (of course I would say that, because I gave it to her).

Look at that grin! We did our best to entertain her, and she did her best to entertain us.

I'm going to interrupt here and say that I had finished the blog here, and tried to save it, and lost everything except the first two paragraphs.

I am not going to try to recreate the whole thing, but I did tell about finishing my homework, and told about the seafood cravings I've been having.

I made mahi-mahi burgers Friday night, crab cakes Saturday night, and seafood chowder Sunday night. I am out of both salmon burgers and mahi-mahi burgers.

I'd better get this published before I lose it! TTFN and have a nice Tuesday!

Day 1616 - Monday, Monday...

Greetings, Monday Morning Blah-gers!

Here's our darling girl Savi with the stuffed animal she got 4th of July weekend.

I am taking the morning off from work today to go to a followup doctors appt (meaning it could take a while to do a lab, see the doctor, visit, etc).

I'll see my 'old' water aerobics buddies too before I leave the pool for my appointment. I miss all the 'morning' people now that I am working out in the afternoons.

Speaking of afternoon - yesterday afternoon Charlie and I went to check out the 'Amish Country Market' in Nolensville, TN. One of my water aerobics instructors had told me about it on Friday.

They sell various items (breads, jams, cheeses) - some Amish, some not, mainly from Tennessee. They also have some deli meats and sausage, etc.

Compared to the 'real thing' in Ethridge, it didn't thrill us too much. However, I can certainly see the appeal given the location, and the prices weren't too outrageous. Take a look if you are interested. We bought 2 peach fried pies (they were not anywhere near as good the freshly made ones we get in Ethridge and cost twice as much) and some veggie chips.

I saw two thermometers yesterday as Charlie and I were taking that drive. One said 99 and one said 98. We stopped at Sonic for ice cream (I had a float and Charlie had a shake).

We did buy a new weather station for the house yesterday, and as I am writing this it is 94 degrees. The weather station has a forecast icon, indoor and outdoor temp and humidity, time and date, and barometric pressure.

Have a great Monday, and TTFN!

Sunday, July 25, 2010


Day 1615 - More Creepy Crawlies

Greetings, Blogregation!

Charlie recently visited his son in Alabama, and took this photo of a black widow spider capturing a wolf spider in its web.

Great Photo, Charlie! You can clearly see the red spot on the black widow.

Here in the South there seem to be lots of poisonous creatures, including black widows. I saw a black widow spider once up at our mailbox, and yes, PETA, I killed it. It was so shiny it looked like a little crawling jewel.

Yesterday Charlie saw a 5 foot long rattlesnake in the road near Laurel Hill Lake. More creepiness.

Be safe today, and hopefully cool! Yesterday it was 100 degrees, and they are anticipating 97 today. The outdoor pool is HOT at the health club in the afternoons.

Our little weather station/indoor-outdoor thermometer is broken, and we're going to go get another one today after we swim.


Saturday, July 24, 2010


Day 1614 - Carol Ann! Carol Ann!

Greetings, Bloggy Weekenders!

I know, I know - very creepy photo from Poltergeist, one of my very favorite movies...

There are twin boys who go to the pool at the health club who look remarkably like the little boy in Poltergeist, except doubled!

I actually heard their voices yesterday - and you know what??


I've got nothing else to say to top that one except 'Carol Ann! Carol Ann!'

If you're not a Poltergeist movie fan, you won't know what the heck I'm talking about. Sorry about that.

TTFN and have a nice Saturday!

Friday, July 23, 2010


Day 1613 - Friday is here at last!

Greetings, Bloggy TGIFers -

It's Friday, Hooray! You know what to do - march in a circle chanting 'Fri-day! Fri-day! Fri-day!'

Hey - no free food at work today. Oh well.

It has been EXTREMELY hot this week, I just feel wrung out and tired from the heat.

Here's a really cool photo - Heather, how did you or Jen do this? I really like it! Take some more!

Charlie and I watched 'Shutter Island' last night - it was OK but I kept falling asleep during the movie.

This will be a short blog because I want to go to bed. As you recall, I write the blog the night before.

TTFN, have a nice Friday and a nice weekend!

Thursday, July 22, 2010


Day 1612 - On Blueberry Hill...

Greetings, Bloggy Short Stackers!

Here's a luscious photo of a stack of blueberry pancakes.

Guess what?

After having a catered lunch, popcorn and cake yesterday, we're having a blueberry pancake breakfast today at work. Great timing.

How am I ever going to lose any weight when we have food events nearly every day? That may end up being my only meal of the day.

We were all encouraged to sign up to bring stuff - pancake mix, syrup, butter, breakfast meat, etc.

I am bringing both sausage and ham, and can't wait to have some! I had just signed up for sausage, then I remembered I had an unopened spiral ham in the freezer that I bought on sale at Christmas. (yes, go back to Christmastime if you want to read about my great deal on spiral honey ham)

Since Charlie and I are watching our salt intake, we don't eat much ham anymore. What better time to put it to good use - feeding a bunch of hungry programmers? (like ME) I have already taken the ham apart, cut the slices into serving-sized pieces, and sprinkled it with honey ham glaze.

Charlie has loaded 2 crock pots into the car - one to keep the sausage warm, and one to keep the ham warm. The sausage I bought is already fully cooked, just heat and eat.

TTFN and I know the rest of you will head to IHOP or Cracker Barrel for pancakes!

Wednesday, July 21, 2010


Day 1611 - Midweek and Midlife

Greetings, Bloggy Middlers!

Here's a great photo of Savannah jumping. Her feet are off the ground! Very, very cute.

Yesterday was the day my homework WOULD have been due. Today is the day that I WOULD have had class again, as well as a new homework assignment for next week. But NOOOO, not this week.

Today we are having big events at work, plus lunch catered by Chick Fil A, plus cake and popcorn this afternoon. I have a volunteer time slot at 3pm to serve cake and popcorn to the masses.

Imagine me surrounded by cake and popcorn. Can you hear me in my role as server?

'One for you, and one for ME.
One for you and one for Charlie.
One for you and one for ME AGAIN.'

Or perhaps another tactic, taught to me by Seinfeld reruns...

'No cake for YOU!
No popcorn for YOU!'

TTFN and have a great Wednesday!

Tuesday, July 20, 2010


Day 1610 - I've Looked at Clouds From Both Sides Now...

Greetings, Bloggy Cloud Watchers!

This Shark Cloud picture is too good to be true - it must have been doctored. That's my story and I'm sticking to it.

However, I saw a great cloud animal last night on the way home. It looked just like a rabbit, with a giant hand patting it on the head. It really did!

But did I stop on the highway and try to take a picture of it with my phone? Nosirree.

Changing subjects -

Celebration! I get an extra week to do my homework, class is cancelled this Wednesday for a company wide thing they are having.

I was over halfway done, but now I can take my time with the rest over the next week. Reprieve!

TTFN and have a great Tuesday!

Monday, July 19, 2010


Day 1609 - Monday, Monday...

Greetings, Monday Morning Blah-gers!

Meet Bubba, the BIGGEST cantaloupe I've ever purchased.

I put a drink bottle next to it for reference, but you can see the paper towel holder behind it, and the melon was every bit as wide.

I say WAS, because I've already dissected it, cut it into chunks, and put it in containers for easy access.

The cantaloupe weighed several pounds. Not bad for $1.98 at Walmart, right? I got a pineapple for 99 cents, too.

I am starting to think my brain is filled with cantaloupe.

I forgot my swim shoes yesterday when Charlie and I went to the pool. I don't know where my address book is. I forgot to call my SISTER for several days. What is UP with THAT?

Cheryl - I finally got your belated birthday card in the mail, and I can't remember if I SIGNED IT! Good grief! I know you'll figure out who it came from.

Have a nice Monday, whoever you are, and TTFN!

Sunday, July 18, 2010


Day 1608 - Sunday, unless I forgot...

Greetings, Blogregation!

Maybe I should say 'Fogregation', because I am just in a FOG these days.

Birthdays, to-do's, shopping items, if I don't write it down I do NOT remember it. I even think I'll remember, and then I don't.

I have even left my breakfast in the microwave a couple of times and left for work without heating it up! Sheesh.

As Charlie has said in the past 'I can't remember the last time I forgot that'.

We even rented a very long but forgettable movie from Nextflix and watched it last night.

It was 'In the Name of the King', a part medieval, part martial-arts fantasy movie, which was a really weird combination. The King was played by Burt Reynolds, of all people. I can't wait to forget that one completely.

Have a nice Sunday, everyone. Hopefully I'll remember to write the blog for Monday!

Day 1607 - No rest for a weary heart

Greetings, Bloggy Weekenders -

I'm putting up a picture of flowers in sympathy for those in need of comfort.

It hurts, doesn't it? I can't accurately describe the pain we feel when we are losing someone.

The thing I always tell myself is that the people we love who pass away will be out of pain, and those of us left behind will just have to bear it.

Heather, I'm very sorry to hear about Mike's Aunt, and yes, of course I remember when you worked at Olan Mills.

Get well, and keep us informed.

Love you!

Friday, July 16, 2010


Day 1606 - No Rest for the Bloggy

Greetings, Bloggy TGIFers!

Here's another cute photo of Savannah and her cousin Ali, my niece. Savannah's still holding her new stuffed animal, even next to the water.

This is going to be a short blog, because I want to go to BED.

I worked all day, then attended a get together with work folks after work, then went to the health club, and then got gas, so I didn't get home until after 9pm.

If you recall, nowadays I write the blog the night before and set when to publish it. Well, it's 10:30pm and past my bedtime.

With that said - you can start being thankful that it's Friday.

You know what to do, march in a circle chanting 'Fri-day! Fri-day! Fri-day!'

Everything after that is up to you! TTFN and have a nice Friday!

Thursday, July 15, 2010


Day 1605 - Oh, Superman!

Greetings, Bloggy Water Dogs -

What a great comic book - Superman as a lifeguard! It is PERFECT for the true story I am going to tell.

We all know that lifeguards are usually young, fit, and cute, except for David Hasselhoff...

The young girls giggle and hang around the male lifeguards, trying to get their attention, OR they are mortified and embarrassed in their bathing suits, and want to be anywhere ELSE.

Well, one of the cutie pie male lifeguards was working at the pool the other day.

I overheard the following conversation (this is as close as I can get to the actual verbiage) in the locker room when I was in the shower.

'Oooooo! I didn't know SUPERMAN was working here today! Oooooo! He's so hot! He looks really strong. I guess lifeguards have to be really fit because otherwise they couldn't save anybody, could they? Where are all the GIRL lifeguards? Why weren't they working today? I look terrible! EEEEEk! He had to see me working out with all those people who are twice my age! I wonder how old he is... Oooooo! How much is a membership here anyway? Ooooo!'

Nuff said. That was the short form. Thank goodness the showers were going to wash away all the drooling.


Wednesday, July 14, 2010


Day 1604 - Midweek, Midlife and MidMonth

Greetings, Bloggy Middlers -

Did you notice that it's midweek, midlife AND midmonth? July is FLYING by!

Here's a cute picture of Savi and her newest stuffed animal. This is SOOOO much cuter than yesterdays boring picture of a FENCE.

She looks so content with her toes in the sand. I want MY toes in the sand too, but I have to wait till the end of August. *sigh*

Changing subjects -

Movie tip - don't bother to rent 'Crazy on the Outside' starring Tim Allen and Sigourney Weaver. It was both bad AND boring.

Today is training day - I'll be in class for 2 hours today. I'm just thankful I finished my homework yesterday during my lunch hour. I'm telling you, homework is NOT fun, but it is very effective because you have to DO it.

My class homework took me a few hours total to slog through, spending a little bit of time over several days. I felt bad about it taking so long till another person in the class told me she spent SIX HOURS doing hers. I feel better all of a sudden...

TTFN and have a nice Mid-everything!

Tuesday, July 13, 2010


Day 1603 - Dee Fence! Dee Fence!

Greetings, Bloggy Fencers!

This is a little hard to explain, but Charlie and I are wondering what could be so special about the CORNER of a fence?

We pass a pasture daily that has two HUGE, beautiful work horses in it. We've watched them since they were young. They are tan with cream colored manes and tails, and I believe they are twins.

Many times the two horses are standing still, end to end, along the two corner rails of the fence - looking out as if to say 'I am guarding this corner, and nobody is coming in!'

Day after day, they stand there and guard the corner of the field, occasionally leaving the corner for grazing, but usually just standing still, looking out.

Sometimes though, I imagine they're not guarding those positions at all, that instead they're mad at each other.

If that is the case then they're saying to each other 'I'm sick of you! I'm never looking at you again! You just go ahead and face that way, and I'll face the other way, and I'm not talking to you either! And don't touch me either! And don't send your flies over here either!'

That is a lot more funny than the strong and silent guardian story, isn't it?

TTFN and have a nice Tuesday!

Monday, July 12, 2010


Day 1602 - Monday, Monday...

Greetings, Monday Morning Blah-gers!

Here's an adorable picture of granddaughter Savi with my niece, Allison.

Evidently they were the best of buddies 4th of July weekend.

Savi's little hand resting on Ali's knee is so sweet and loving, isn't it?

Too cute.

Well, the weekend is over, and I did some work on my homework on Saturday but I have a ways to go.

I might have mentioned that I am taking an internal training class in C# (pronounced C-sharp) once a week for the next 6 weeks - 8 weeks total. We've already completed two classes, and we have homework every week.

About half the class has already dropped out after 2 weeks. I think that is because the homework is mandatory and a bit challenging.

If you didn't read yesterdays comments, Charlie and I went to see the movie 'Knight and Day' yesterday, starring Tom Cruise and Cameron Diaz. We enjoyed it! It was funny, cute, and has a lot of action as well. Mom - I think you and Gil should go see it.

Wish me luck finishing my homework, and have a nice Monday! TTFN!

Sunday, July 11, 2010


Day 1601 - Spoil(ed) Rotten!

Greetings, Blogregation!

Is it Sunday already? No! I need an extra day or two like last weekend!

As seen on a church sign - 'If you text while you're driving you'll get to meet Jesus'.

Hey - it's 7/11 day! Are the 7/11's giving away anything today? I haven't seen any commercials about a giveaway, sad to say.

I have a story about 'Spoiled Rotten'. I walk around the building where I work sometimes - if it's not too hot. I just do a couple of laps and then go back inside.

Someone who also works there has one of those airbrush style decorative plates on the front of their car. Usually they have some cute saying or a couples names or hearts or something.

This one says 'Spoil Rotten'. No, not 'Spoiled Rotten', 'Spoil Rotten'.

Now tell me, did the person who owns that car WRITE THAT and have the plate made that way, OR, did they BUY the plate and pay money for something that was WRONG? I doubt very much that it is an instruction to Spoil the Owner Rotten, I believe it is flat WRONG.

Tell me, tell me. I couldn't even find a photo or a vanity plate for this blog that used 'Spoil Rotten' instead of 'Spoiled Rotten'.

It's a mystery to me why they have it on their car!!??? It would drive me crazy. Even walking past it every day is more than enough to make me crazy.

Anyway - have a nice Sunday, and TTFN!

Saturday, July 10, 2010


Day 1600 - The Chicken Who Was Run Over By a Watermelon

Greetings, Bloggy Weekenders!

I got ya on the title, didn't I? And what a nice number - 1600 days of blogging, readers!

YES, I have a real story about a chicken getting run over by a watermelon. It did happen.

However, it was not a live chicken, it was our rotisserie chicken, and a BIG watermelon. I had just bought them at Sams, and neglected to think that a watermelon could ROLL in the trunk of the car.

I was driving home (late) from work yesterday, after having stopped at Sams Club and picking up a few things ($37 is only a few things).

I went up a hill, or had to accelerate sharply, or SOMETHING, when all of a sudden I heard a sickening crack and crunch from a container that looked JUST like the one in the photo. For the rest of the drive home, I imagined chicken grease leaking all over the trunk of the car. There were a few other cracking noises at other lights I needed to stop at.

The good news - when I got home, the container was not leaking. Word to the wise - secure your watermelons for the safety of your chicken.

Have a nice Saturday!

Friday, July 09, 2010


Day 1599 - Friday, Hooray!

Greetings, Bloggy TGIFers -

It's Friday, Hooray! See how happy Savannah is?

You know what to do - march in a circle (preferably at the beach in the ocean) chanting 'Fri-day! Fri-day! Fri-day!'

Even though this has been a short week, I am ready for Friday and the weekend again. I am almost out of Amish tomatoes, we may need to take another journey to Ethridge to get more!

Have I mentioned the peaches Charlie brought home from the peach farm?

We didn't even KNOW there was a peach farm nearby until recently, and now we are enjoying DELICIOUS tree ripened peaches. Thanks, Julie, for reminding us about Forgies!

Here's a link if you want to read about Forgies and get totally jealous...

TTFN and have a nice weekend!

Thursday, July 08, 2010


Day 1598 - A LOSER no more!

Greetings, Bloggy Finders and Keepers!

I am a Loser and Weeper no more.

The prodigal aqua shoes have returned, I've found them!

This picture isn't really them, it's just there to put you in the aqua shoe frame of mind.

They had slipped behind the shoe rack in my closet, and I finally spotted them. Hooray!

I know that these aqua shoe blogs are totally unnecessary and trivial, but hey - they're free.

Have a great Thursday, Friday is TOMORROW!

Wednesday, July 07, 2010


Day 1597 - Lessons from Little Big Man

Greetings, Bloggy Movie Watchers -

One of my favorite movies of all time is Dustin Hoffmans 'Little Big Man' from 1970.

Yeah, I know - 1970. That may be a long time ago, but not too long to remember things that have become part of you!

If you like westerns even a little bit, you really ought to watch it sometime. It has everything in buckets - lots of humor, and tragedy, and love, and life lessons, everything.

Yesterday I was feeling happy about getting my class homework done on time and getting a compliment on my solution. I thought 'My heart soars like a hawk'. That is what Little Big Man's grandfather used to say, and he was a wonderful character in the movie.

Hey - that one phrase has stuck to me, and it's part of me now.

Think of all the bits and pieces that have become a part of you, and where THEY came from.

TTFN and have a nice Wednesday! Midweek and Midlife!

Tuesday, July 06, 2010


Day 1596 - I'm a LOOOSSSEERRR...

Greetings, Bloggy Back to Work-ers!

That's right, I said it.

I'm a LOSER.

I'm a LOSER because I LOSE STUFF.

Somewhere in this house, I have a shocking pink pair of aqua shoes that I bought at Big Lots.

Somewhere, and I don't know where. I can't find them! That's why I'm a LOSER.

I told Charlie about the loss of my aqua shoes. He told me that he has TWO pair of aqua shoes somewhere in the house, and can't find those either.

So... what does that mean? That we're both LOSERS, or that we have some invisible house gremlins that live off aqua shoes? I wonder....

TTFN and have a nice Tuesday!

Day 1595 - Theres a Song in My Heart - Right Next to My Pacemaker

Greetings, Monday Morning Blah-gers!

It's the final day of the long weekend. Has your holiday weekend been everything you'd hoped for? Ours has!

We had a great time at Buddy Joes last night - and fabulous food.

We left at 9pm, and watched various fireworks displays from the highway all the way home! Awesome!

I have a funny story from yesterday...

Some of the music I've been listening to lately isn't in English. I like that, because I don't know what they're saying and the lyrics don't annoy me. It also gives me creative license to MAKE UP what they're singing about.

Yesterday was 'Music from the Geriatric Songwriters Guild':

#1 Hit Song - I have a broken heart and a kidney stone.

#2 Hit Song - Just you, me, and that little blue pill makes three.

#3 Hit Song - I'll share my heart and my medication with you.

#4 Hit Song - She's in heaven now, but I think of her when I cash her social security check.

Enjoy the holiday - 'cause it's back to work tomorrow!

Sunday, July 04, 2010


Day 1594 - Happy Birthday, America!

Greetings, Bloggy Celebrants -

Happy 4th of July!

In New England, I know 'the Fam' is going to be having a lobster boil.

We're going to a cookout at Buddy Joes, so we'll have fun too, even with no lobsters.

No need to blog more than that - TTFN and have a Happy 4th of July!

Saturday, July 03, 2010


Day 1593 - The Holiday Weekend is HERE!

Greetings, Bloggy 4th of July Funlovers!

Here's a photo from 2006, the last time I managed to get to Maine for the 4th of July weekend.

All the relatives gather at my Aunt and Uncles lakeside 'camp' (which is now a year round home), and swim, boat and cook out over a wood fire.

It is TONS of fun, and that's what they're all doing today!

Meanwhile, here in Tennessee I am getting ready to go to water aerobics, which won't be quite as fun, but I need to work off the big breakfast I just ate.

Have a great day, everyone! TTFN!

Friday, July 02, 2010


Day 1592 - Kick off the Holiday Weekend!

Greetings, Bloggy Holiday Celebrants -

Here's our flag bearer, Savannah - except her hand held flag isn't visible in this photo. Ha! She is totally cute in flag attire, though.

Hey - are you getting out early from work this afternoon?

I'm wondering if they'll let us out early. I have had a very busy week, so I am hoping the answer is yes. A nice LONG weekend is just the ticket, and a short week next week makes it even better.

We don't have any definite plans for the weekend, and that is just fine with me. There's always something to do, and we'll have three days to do it.

Charlie and I are thinking of taking a drive out to Amish country Saturday or Monday to see if we can get some sweet corn, tomatoes and maybe a watermelon. We have some green tomatoes in the garden, but have had only two ripe ones so far.

Blackberries should be getting ripe soon, so some blackberry picking might be in the mix as well.

Have a wonderful long weekend, everyone! Happy 4th of July!

Thursday, July 01, 2010


Day 1591 - The Prodigal Fisherman Has Returned!

Greetings, Bloggy Fishermen -

Here's a great photo of Charlie with the monster cutthroat trout that he caught in Utah.

Good job, Charlie!

It's the biggest trout Charlie has ever caught, and the biggest trout ANYONE caught on the fishing trip.

In case you're wondering, Charlie did not throw it back. He ate it, and said it was YUMMY. That's the REAL meaning of a KEEPER, isn't it?

There were four men, and between them they caught 166 trout in four outings. Charlie caught 45 total.

Sounds like fun.... but shopping is fun too! TTFN and have a nice Thursday!
