I haven't been fishing for over 35 years. Used to Trout fish and sometimes go for Largemouth bass. Always liked Bluegill, bacon and eggs for breakfast whenever I was in the woods.

I imagine my flylines are all dry rotted hanging in the garage since the seventies like that. Heirlooms from a slower time in my life when I worked for "THE MAN" and complained, through my ignorance, of what THE MAN was doing to keep me employed.

Two weeks ago, while sitting on the sailboat my 12 year old grandson complained his dad didn't take him fishing. So last nite we bought a Zebco and some tackle. Then came the tackle box.

Jessie seemed pretty pleased. But then we bought the best item for carrying his pole and tackle box. A fourteen foot lake canoe. Today and tonite we will be tying ropes into anchor Rhodes, stern and bowlines. And getting the "Blue Falcon" as he named her, ready for Lake Stockton.
It has a square stern so, eventually, we can mount a trolling motor.

Many of the small lakes in Connecticut do not allow large motors so with this rig he and his dad can go fishing there instead of the CT river where the cabin cruiser is docked.

Mean while he and Grandpa can do Lake Stockton and maybe some of the cold clear rivers in southern MO.

You're some Grandpa, Franc.

Dropped the lovely Mrs_Bob off at Physical Therapy a while ago, came home to let the dogs out. On my way back to get her from PT shortly and then drive up to Chicago to meet Melen for dinner.

We are planning to eat at The Asian Cajun. Its one of those "fusion" restaurants, its located just outside the edge of Chinatown. Friend of mine told me about it and loves it. Its not terribly far from Melen's apartment (12 blocks) so we are planning to walk to the restaurant.

I hope today finds you feeling better, Brian.

I'm up having my coffee in wonderful silence.
Ty got called to a rollover crash on 24 and 109.
Oh and we got one.
Stay away from the ducks, varmint!
It's not dead, it's just exhausting itself trying to get free.
When I first saw it this morning I thought it was digging a hole in the ground, then I went out there.

Much better today. Thx.

I figured I'd start off the day on a good note by playing guitar for an hour.

Getting ready for camp this evening when the lovely missus gets home from work. We had our oldest foster daughter enrolled in a summer reading program. Today is the last day so I have been voluntold to go for a completion ceremony this afternoon.

Got my first batch of pellets all put away and just called to delay the next batch as we have what they are predicting as a solid week of rainy crappy weather. We are due after all the sunny hot weather over the past month.

Today, going for a stroll on the local rail trail and check out the progress they are making on connecting the gaps in the trail (mostly lost bridges). I am hoping to go 4-5 miles, but my foot and leg will be the judge of that.

I'm going to get my hair and nails done this afternoon and check out the roundabout they are building south of town.
Everyone around here freaking out over a small roundabout.
I told one lady at the store last week, I used to live in West Yorkshire, England.
You'd lose your mind driving Tingley to get on the M62.
She just looked at me Lol

A little me time is needed every so often.


To me roundabouts are no big deal. Don't know about the ones overseas. Some of those look brutal.

Yes indeedy!


Tingley was the worst I ever encountered.
People always talked about spaghetti junction in Birmingham being bad, but it's not quite the same.
I drove in Wales where a lot of the signs are in Welsh.
I've also witnessed a car load of Pakistanis driving right OVER a roundabout.
That one was smaller.

I like roundabouts. They make a lot of sense. I don't know whether to be surprised that Americans dislike them or that the British invented them.

Packing up for the weekend at the lake.

Jessie's new boat has a lot of gear to install for his fishing expeditions. lines, set cushions, paddles, a beer cooler, all necessities for proper passage.

Cathy bought two dock box kits for me to install on Saturday.

Between fishing with Jessie and carpentry chores much of Saturday is consumed with work. I do hope that we finally get to sail on Sunday.
