Beautiful Days

The Lake
I enjoyed getting on the lake today for a few hours. My friend Doug went with me and it gave me a chance to relax and reflect. It was a beautiful day. I thought of Dad many times while on the water. He would always tell me on any day the weather was nice, that this would be a good day to go fishing.

While we fished it seemed that was not the real reason to be on the water. I think I enjoyed nature more than I ever had. But we did catch fish. We caught 5 nice lake trout but only kept the 3 largest. I was lucky in catching the biggest one which weighed 4 pounds and 12 ounces.

Here’s a picture I took on South Holston Lake today.

We all appreciate kindness, and at times it can make a tremendous difference to our attitude.

Joke of the Day

A woman got on a bus holding a baby. The bus driver said, "That's the ugliest baby I've ever seen."

In a huff, the woman slammed her fare into the fare box and took an aisle seat near the rear of the bus.

The man seated next to her sensed that she was agitated and asked her what was wrong.

"The bus driver insulted me," she fumed.

The man sympathized and said, "Why, he's a public servant and shouldn't say things to insult passengers."

You're right," She said. "I think I'll go back up there and give him a piece of my mind."

"That's a good idea," the man said. "Here, let me hold your monkey."
