Saturday Evening Cookout
We had a wonderful time at our cookout last Saturday evening. We grilled hamburgers, built a nice fire in the backyard, and roasted marsh mellows. I think these pictures will tell the story…

I’m heading back to Douglas Lake today to try those crappie again. Our last couple of trips we had better luck using a lure called the Road Runner. It’s like a lead head jig with a twister but has a little spinner blade on it (See picture). It seems like every year there’s something a little different that you need to use to get the bite. Well, we’ll try the Road Runners today, as well a Jiffy Jigs, hair jigs, and plastic jigs of all different colors, with and without minnows.
Thus far this year we have made 4 trips to Douglas for crappie. We have caught a total of 74 crappie, but only 37 keepers. So about half have been under the size limit. That’s not all bad, because it means there are prospects of a good future for fishing.
If you can laugh at yourself,
you shall never cease to be amused.

Joke of the Day
George was going up to bed when his wife told him that he'd left the light on in the garden shed, which she could see from the bedroom window. George opened the back door to go turn off the light but saw that there were people in the shed stealing things. He phoned the police, who asked "Is someone in your house?" and he said no.
Then they said that all patrols were busy, and that he should simply lock his door and an officer would be along when available. George said "Okay," and hung up, counted to 30, and phoned the police again.
"Hello. I just called you a few seconds ago because there were people in my shed. Well, you don't have to worry about them. I've shot them all." Then he hung up.
Within five minutes three police cars, an Armed Response unit, and an ambulance showed up at the Phillips residence. Of course, the police caught the burglars red-handed. One of the policemen said to George: "I thought you said that you'd shot them!"
George said, "I thought you said there was nobody available!"
