Fishing TRIP!!

Well we woke to a beautiful God given day friday and packed a lunch, packed the car and headed out on a "Fishing Trip", We drove down to Dexter and tried 2 places where it was easy access for Anna Mae, We fished and planned on having fish for dinner saturday, we ended up eating chicken!!!!

We saw an Osprey over head circle and circle overhead and float and then down he came like a bullet, what a sight as he hit the water and bang, he got a nice fish, he had better luck than we did!!!!! we saw lots of birds and watched Merganzer Ducks and also saw a Woodduck come out of the woods and land in front of us. What a great time we had!!!!

We both enjoyed the sunshine and beauty of Dexter. We took a break and had a River front "Picnic", Anna is doing good as long as she stays on level ground but is having some problems adjusting to the pain medications and trying not to overdo it.

We didn't get any fish friday so Anna and I met My Son, Daughter, and Granddaughter and we all went to the Elks Club for the first "Bullhead" feast for the season I was good and only had 6 nice tasty ones!!! Next Saturday is the "Bullhead Feed" in Brownville, its all you can eat and is one of the best feeds around!!!!

Tonight I cooked "Chicken", NOT FISH as I had hoped for, I made up a BBQ sause of Ketchup, mustard, onion and garlic powder and brown sugar, anna made steamed cauliflower and Brocolli and cheeze, and Mac and Cheese, it wasn't the trout we had hoped to catch and fry up but it was very, very tasty.

In the back ground of this picture below is this years garden spot, We didn't have this one last year, not much in it yet but we have bought Onion Sets and our seeds and have to waittill the end of May to plant, BUT will wait till we see what the forecast is, last year we had a late frost the end of May.

Right now it is clouding up, temp is fantastic 70 degrees, (YAHOO) and we are supposed to get some strong Thunder and Lightning and rain tonight! Hopefully it will stay warm!!!

We need to remember our "Veterans" everyday!!!

Great entry, you shoulda been a chef! You and Anne must dish up the best food. Sorry about the fish, but some days you don't get any then there are other days you don't get any. LOL. I know the picnic was good. Anne looks good in that seat. Praying that the pain is less and the healing/rehab process is rapid.
Take care and enjoy,
Jack & Sherry

Hey Woody, might be too early for anything right now. Trout are finicky arent they? Chicken is good too! The garden spot looks good, I could use something like that. Linda
