Last Friday

Last Day of Fishing for 2010
IMG_0306Doug and I went to South Holston Lake for one last fishing trip this year. We had a good day, and had our limit of lake trout before Noon and a couple of nice catfish to boot. The largest lake trout was 3 1/2 pounds and one of the catfish weighed in at 5 pounds. You will notice that I am smiling in the picture.

It was certainly a good way to end the season. My boat is in the shop today for winterization and it will not be back on the water until next March at best.

Knee Replacement
I’ve got full replacement knee surgery scheduled for November 30, 2010 on my left knee. And after that I hope to have the right knee replaced. I’m hoping to get both done this winter and be back to normal activities by spring. But that may be asking for too much.

IVCFDue to blood clots I had last year, I’m also scheduled to have a inferior vena cava filter placed in my body a week before my knee surgery. This is supposed to prevent “killer” blood clots. The picture above shows a typical filter.

Joke of the Day

A little boy knocks at the door and tells the owner that something of his had found its way into her garage, and he wanted it back. The homeowner opened the garage and noticed two additions; a baseball and broken window sporting a baseball-sized hole.

“How do you suppose this ball got in here?” she asked the child.

Taking one look at the ball, one look at the window, and one look at the homeowner, the little boy exclaimed, “Wow lady! I must have thrown it right through that hole!”

Glad to see a photo of the filter.
