How 'Bout Them Apples!

The Apple Tree
We have an apple tree in our backyard that I planted many years ago. It's a Red Delicious, semi-dwarf, tree that I ordered from Stark Nurseries. Some years it does bad, some years fair, but this year it has done great.

Beverly and I picked apples the other day. Here's a picture of her holding one of the limbs from the apple tree. How 'bout them apples! Today she's making apple butter with our friend Sharon.

I went down to Douglas Lake yesterday to check on the crappie, but nothing good to report. We caught 1 catfish, 1 drum and about 10 small stripped bass... but no crappie. I think I'll wait a couple of weeks before I try again.

A bad day of fishing is much better than a good day of weed eating and yard work.


Quote of the Day

It is a most mortifying reflection for a man to consider what he has done, compared to what he might have done.
~Samuel Johnson

Joke of the Day
A man left for work one Friday afternoon. It was payday, so instead of going home, he stayed out the entire weekend partying with the boys and spending his entire paycheck.

When he finally appeared at home on Sunday night, he was confronted by his angry wife and was barraged for nearly two hours with a tirade befitting his actions. Finally, his wife stopped the nagging and said to him, "How would you like it if you didn't see me for two or three days?"

He replied, "That would be fine with me."

Monday went by and he didn't see his wife.

Tuesday and Wednesday came and went with the same results.

On Thursday, the swelling went down just enough where he could see her a little out of the corner of his left eye.
