Fishing Results

Douglas Lake 
Doug, Ralph, and I had a fun day on Douglas Lake yesterday. We didn’t catch a lot of fish, but it sure was nice to get in the sunshine and enjoy the waves.

Here’s one of blue Herons that inhabit the area. This one was sitting on a floating log. IMG_0707
The lake had risen several feet in the past 24 hours, which hurt the fishing and made navigation difficult. IMG_0712

Ralph holds the final stringer of nine fish: 5 big crappie, 3 white bass, and 1 catfish. IMG_0742

Decorative Candles
You’ve seen those fancy candles for sale. Ever wonder how they are made. This video will show you the steps in makings such candles. It’s lots of work, too. No wonder they are so expensive.

If You’re interested in how things are made, go to YouTube and search “How it’s Made” and you will get a long list of videos demonstrating how various products are made.

Tennessee Granddaddy Says:
A bank is  a place that will lend you money if you can prove  that you don't need it.

Someone told me one time that you can measure your worth by what you owe to others. That may be true to some extent when you are young, but not for me as I grown older. I don’t want to owe anybody anything.

Quote of the Day
Before borrowing money from a friend,
decide which you need most.
