This and That…

Dad’s Tomato Garden
I made a short post on Dad’s Blog showing a few pictures of his Tomato Plants. You can see them here:


Fishing Results
I have taken the time to go fishing a couple of times in the last month. Both time we went to South Holston to fish for the lake trout. We caught our limit both times, but the limit is only 2 per day per person. Even so, the fish are big and it results in a good mess. Here’s a couple of pictures

On 6/19/12 Doug and I had 4 nice keepers. The total weight of the stringer was 17.5 lbs. IMG_2313
On 6/26/12 Doug, Ralph and I had 6 nice keepers. The stinger weight was almost 19 lbs., and the largest went close to 6 lbs. IMG_2319
Tennessee Granddaddy Says:
We’re getting excited about the upcoming birth of our first great grandson, Atley James Rogers. Mandy, our granddaughter, is expecting birth within the next couple of weeks. I hope to have a birth announcement in the near future!!!
We have been spending lots of time in Knoxville of late. We’ve been going through the home place to make had decisions about what to keep, what to sell, and what to throw away. It is heart-rendering to say the least.

Quote of the Day
Give thanks for what you are now,
and keep fighting for what you want to be tomorrow.

Joke of the Day

A man went to the airline counter and the ticket agent asked, "Sir, do you have reservations?"

The man replied, "Of course I have reservations, but I'm flying anyway."


A man walked up to the airline counter and told the airline worker, “I'd like this bag to go to Berlin, this one to California, and this one to London."

The worker says, “I'm sorry sir. We can't do that.”

The man replied, "Nonsense. You did it the last time I flew with you."

I have had 'Dad' on my mind for the last few days more so than usual and went to his blog just to read soe of his posts..so as to feel close to him again. You will never know how much I loved goign by and reading his posts. Although I may not have commented each time, I did go..and I alwasy felt at home...at peace..and I swear i could smell the coffee brewing! Your dad touched my heart and soul and a little piece of him will live on here in this old heart. Isn't it strange how people you have never met can tough your very soul with their kindness? I am crying as I write this now...missing dad so much..and just wanted to tell you to keep your blog please..write in it as much as you can..your daddy would have liked that. He was so proud of you.
