A Busy Week

I’ve Been Working
Yes I’ve been working on my fishing tackle. BUT my wife calls it “playing”! Just yesterday she came to the door of my little office where I was working on my fishing gear and she said, '”Oh, I see you’re playing.” Can you believe that?

Here’s some my handiwork.

Here’s some Walleye Rigs fabricated on wire. IMG_2765
Some more walleye rigs. These worm harnesses are made with mono line. IMG_2766
Some spoons made from willow blades, treble hooks, & split rings. IMG_2764

Here’s a picture of one of my new fishing rods and reels. It’s 7’ Microlite Fishing Rod from Bass Pro and a Shimano Sienna Reel. I’ve got 4 lb. test line on the reel. It’s a light action rod and works great for crappie.IMG_2763

Big Snow?
According to the weather forecast, we’re supposed to get a big snow beginning this afternoon. One forecast said we might get as much as 8-10 inches in the lower elevations and 12 or more in the mountains. We’ll see. Many times when they forecast snow we never get it, it’s when they don’t forecast it that we get the big snows. No matter what, it sure helps the grocery business. People we packed in the local groceries yesterday afternoon. By noon today, it may be hard to find a loaf of bread. Ha.

Joke of the Day

The two thousand member Baptist church was filled to overflowing capacity one Sunday morning. The preacher was ready to start the sermon when two men, dressed in long black coats and black hats entered thru the rear of the church.

One of the two men walked to the middle of the church while the other stayed at the back of the church. They both then reached under their coats and withdrew automatic weapons.

The one in the middle announced, Everyone willing to take a bullet for Jesus stay in your seats!

Naturally, the pews emptied, followed by the choir. The deacons ran out the door, followed by the choir director and the assistant pastor.

After a few moments, there were about twenty people left sitting in the church. The preacher was holding steady in the pulpit.

The men put their weapons away and said, gently, to the preacher, All right, pastor, the hypocrites are gone now. You may begin the service.

I like how you 'play'. My son makes his own tackle too. In fact, he is out in the ice shanty this weekend in hopes of getting some nice walleye and crappies through the ice.
:) but oh so cold out, Minus 21 this morning when he left at 3 a.m.

Love the Joke of the day....
