Good Day

Best Day This Year
P1060515 While the fishing was super great, at least wee caught some good fish yesterday. We only brought home 11 crappie, but they were really nice fish. Two of them were over 14 inches and the smallest was between 12 and 13 inches. That me holding the stringer. When we catch the fish we put them in the live well, but when the day is done we string them up to get a nice memory picture.

P1060511The picture above shows up measuring one of the larger fish. You probably can’t tell by the picture but the tail is beyond the 14 inch mark. That’s a nice crappie.

Tennessee Granddaddy Says:
Getting outdoors is good for a person. I enjoyed fishing yesterday, not just because we caught some fish but because I enjoyed seeing the beautiful trees, the blooming redbud trees in the wild, feeling the sunshine and the gentle rocking of the boat, hearing the waves lap against the boat and hearing the birds,… It is so wonderful to get outdoors and enjoy nature.

Quote of the Day
The best kind of friend is the one you could sit on a porch with, never saying a word, and walk away feeling like that was the best conversation you've had.

Joke of the Day

Do you remember this? I remember seeing this in a sign posted in a place of work… where the manager would not see it.

We, the willing,
Led by the unknowing,
Are doing the impossible
For the ungrateful.
We have done so much
For so long,
With so little,
We are now qualified
To do anything
With nothing.

Great string of fish. Glad that you are able to go and that they are biting now. Wish we were able to go fishing but alas we haven't been for several years now. Helen

Love the quote of the day. Just had one of those conversations with my Mom last night.

And isn't That the Truth
