Greetings from Ithaca, NY

Beverly and I are in Ithaca, NY tonight. We left Celia today with some family and friends. We plan to pick her up on our return trip next Monday.

No Fishing
I was unable to go fishing on Monday. The lake was too rough for it to be safe. I still happy. I did get to visit Poor Richard's Bait and Tackle store and stock up on some needed items. I got some spoons and "Deeper Divers"... but the big item(s) was two new trolling rods (10 feet) and two new Okuma line counter reels. Now if I can just get home without breaking those rods (they are 2 piece rods).

Erie Canal
We got a good look at the Erie Canal today. The picture that looks like a ordinary tunnel is more that what it appears to be. It is a tunnel that goes under the Erie Canal. See the sign posted beside the tunnel.


Tennessee Granddaddy Says:
It is good to be joyful and of good cheer.
No one likes a grouch.

Quote of the Day
We have two ears and one mouth so that we can listen
twice as much as we speak.

Joke of the Day
Two hunters were dragging their dead deer back to their truck.

Another hunter approached pulling his along too. "Hey, I don't want to tell you how to do something... but I can tell you that it's much easier if you drag the deer in the other direction. Then the antlers won't dig into the ground."

After the third hunter left, the two decided to try it.

A little while later one hunter said to the other, "You know, that guy was right. This is a lot easier!"

"Yeah," the other added, "but we're getting farther away from the truck...."
