                 Good morning Marv, ER's,
                           It's 59* and cloudy here on my hill with showers in the forecast!
                           I see Eddie is in the hallway, I hope your nerves aren't getting the best of you, have a great time tonight! :woot: :clap:
                           Marv.........I think you'll enjoy the smallmouth fishing, have a good time and catch a lot! :flex:
                           WW..........I glad to see your grandchildren enjoyed the fishing, it's good that you can get them out!
                           Bud/h2l......I know the A1C test is a 3 month average of your blood sugar but it is obtained by the amount of
                  sugar that is on the red blood cells, at least that's what the doctor told me. My A1C was 8.2 and it was the same
                  a year ago, my sugar was 105. I take my readings in the morning and at night before bed, now he wants me to
                  take mid day readings, also he ordered a new meter thinking it could be off. ::)
                           I don't have my material to finish up the woodshed yet, maybe the guy will call today saying it's ready for pick up!
                           I hope everyone has a good day either at work or out fishing!

                  IW

Good Morning Marv, Jeff, Morning Everyone,
  Partly cloudy and 61*, high of 74 expected here today. Looks like the rain will hold off until after the ceremony, forecast showing it moving in about 9pm.
   Jeff...great weather to work outside today, hope you get the call for the siding...and Thank You!    :thumbsup:
  Marv...hoping you and the ladies have a great outing today, sounds like a great time! Those smallmouths are quite the battlers, looking forward to your report!   :clap: :thumbsup:   The nerves...yes, they are working overtime!   ;D.
  H2...congrats on the catching, awesome!   :thumbsup:
  Wally...great pictures and beautiful grandchildren...the smiles tell it all, wtg!!   :bow: :clap: :thumbsup:  Couldn't agree more on the devices, seems to be the way nowadays.
  Bud...that sucks about the corn harvest! Good luck in your hunt for the culprit(s)!
  Steve...congrats on the move and best wishes with the new homestead!  :thumbsup:
  Tom...here's to beating the odds.... :clap: :thumbsup: :bow:   Hope your trip went smoothly yesterday!

   The rehearsal and dinner went well last night, crossed that hurdle!   ;D.  All of my wife's family arrived on schedule without any problems, spent some time catching up last night until the eyes started closing.
   My DIL's mother is originally from England and still carries quite an accent. Last night we got to meet many of her relatives who made the trip across the pond, thoroughly enjoyed speaking with them and just hearing them speak in general. It won't be hard to recognize many on her side of the family!    ;D
  Well, less than 12 hours left until the vows are made. Thank You all for the well wishes...cawfee's on!    :thumbsup:
Have a great day all, be safe, best of luck to those fishing!

Good Morning ER's Just looked at the 10 guessers opinions  Heading back to the 80's and They might be on to something.  Sky is overcast, and see the chance of rain on all 10 days is for 50% or more  ??? ::)  :cookoo:

Should have taken the boat out yesterday but Mother had other ideas, like tree trimming and house cleaning.  While at the store, see what had been delivered in the last truck was still not unpacked and put out on the floor.  Didn't do the "parking lot yard sale"  even thought I had a folding table and chair with.  Maybe after the grand kids visit.  See the signs on all the combo rod/reels had been bumped to 40% off.  and what older Sonars Humming bird 688's were now 50% off.

Sounds like a fun day targeting the Smallies Marv 

Hope your material makes it in Jeff, and you get to get over your itch to getter done.

Doctor wants another blood drawn in September and will be doing the fasting one.  For now have eliminated all sugar, pastries, candies from my diet.  Suppose everyone will be looking at me like I am the one in need of a snickers

WW good luck on the berry harvest.

Good day all, stay safe.
Bud

Good evening everyone relaxing after work before doing dome cleaning. I will have to watch the news later for latest update on North Korea saga praying two strong willed men will listen to calmer voices and things do not get ugly come next Tuesday.
Eddie have a jolly good time at the big affair tonight "Old Chap". It is funny how much difference there is in word pronouncation between here and England not to mention the different expressions and names for things. Glad your wife's family had a safe trip. I'm sure everything will go great I.
Whopper Stopper hope you and the ladies got into a mess of small mouths ,I've only caught one quite the battle on light tackle.
Hunts2long congratulations to your friend and you sounds like a great day of fishing.
Wallyworld  I think most young people today would be lost without their phones glad you were able to get the grandchildren away from them for a few hours. Good looking group of children sure you and Mr.WW enjoy every visit despite to toll on your bodies trying to keep up with their endlees energy levels.
IFF sorry to hear about the lost corn . All the best getting your blood sugar levels down.
Ice Wanderer Best to you also with the blood sugar battle. Hope the materials come in so you can finish wood shed and start working on filling it for this Winter.
Mr.Turkey has was/is the special bread know from your posts it is one of your pleasures in life.

Have a good and safe evening folks.
Steve

Good Morning ER's

WW, Oh dang the pie sure looks tempting, Kind of late for black berries No  ???  Thinking they would be ripe in July  :unsure: So far so good, on my Diet.  Not one grain of sugar so far.  The Grand Kids arrive Monday afternoon, and will try and take in as many sights as they can.  Tuesday I plan on taking them to my mud hole and got out a 2 place, sit in towing tube.  Wednesday they will be visiting some family of the Grand Daughters husband.  Thursday its off to Pikes Peak, and surrounding sights.

Got called in yesterday for 8 hours, Mrs said she see a rat running out on the deck several times just as the light was fading.   :%$#!:  So the watch will begin again.

Back to last minute house cleaning  ::)

Don't get to soaked 45  ;D

WS......hope you're sleeping in this morning because the fish tired you out yesterday  :woot:  looking forward to the report later  ;)

Eddie.....I imagine you'll be a little late this morning also, hope the nite went well  :)

Have a good day. Stay safe.

Jeff,  More like disturbing there homes in the sewer drains.  On going major re-construction taking place less than a mile away on roads/streets is my guess.

WooHoo, On target 6:30 and out she comes.  Took one in the throat, and exit the tail.  At first thought it was much smaller, more like a mouse. But once retrieved, nope full grown Rat.

Marv don't look now but radar says its heading your way.  ::)

            Good morning Wally, Bud, ER's,
                    It's 61* and clear skies on my hill this morning, today looks like another nice one! :clap:
                    Wally.......I hope your weekend is going well, are you getting some relaxation from the grandkids visit? ???
                    Bud.........Nice shot, maybe you should employ the Pied Piper to get the rat to jump in the Colorado river! :woot:
                    Yesterday my wife and I went to pick Blackberries up on the mountain behind my #3 sons house but they were
            not ready yet another week or so. Then I came home and stacked the cord of wood that MW delivered on Friday. A chord
            fills one row 6' high in my new woodshed!
 
                    Today I will do a miner repair on my wood boiler and then mow my lawn!
                    I hope everyone has a good Sunday either at work or out wetting a line!

Good morning early risers sunny day currently here in south east NY. My sister was up for a few hours yesterday afternoon we got some more house clean out done boy did my family acquire at lot of things over the years.
Wallyworld you must have found a large patch of black berries to have enough to make 6 pies. I hope your hands are not stained purple between the picking and pie making.
IFF sure a lot of wildlife by you hope the construction project is scheduled to end soon so the rats settle down and stop paying you a visit any more sign of the raccoon/raccoons. Enjoy the time with your grandchildren.
Bart I'm with Wallyworld on your   ??? will have to go back through this thread and see if I can figure out what your question is. Take care and stop by again.
Ice Wanderer the shed looks great see your already have Mealworm working on this Winter's wood supply. May you beat the birds and other wild life to the berries when they are ready for picking. Guessing Mealworm is busy with his work so finds little time to post hope all is well for him and the rest of your family.
Whopper Stopper are you still recovering from a great trip for small mouth bass ? I hope the computer gremlins have not gotten to your computer we are all looking forward to a trip report. I see you posted about Glen Campbell's recent death in the Grumpy thread if you would like some of his records let me know my Dad was a big fan I have several of his albums.
Eddie assume all was good with the wedding and everyone enjoyed the reception after ceremony. I figure your still entertain some guests so will not post until later today or tomorrow.
Old Goat how are things out your way your daughter must leave soon to start her year at college.

 Have a safe and good Sunday everyone. Best to all fishing.
Steve

Good Afternoon Everyone :bow:

Wow, these last few days have flown by, and tomorrow itís already time to sling the saw again.  We are starting early tomorrow so I figured I would post now being Iíd be short of time in the morning.

The river trip was a lot of fun. The place we went with took lots of time to try and answer any questions and make sure we all had an enjoyable time. We showed up at 10am and waited until they opened at 10:30. We had to sit through a safety film and then pick out our gear for the river and sign waivers. Being as everything was included, other than my rod, we just used all of their stuff.

The float was 8 miles and with the speed of the current it only took about 5 hours to cover the distance. I would love to say we hammered the smallies, but it wasnít the case. My Niece had picked out the rod she wanted to use with a spinning reel, but never told anyone she never had used one before. Eventually I picked up on it about 15 minutes into the float. I caught up to her and tried my best to teach her. She had a heck of a time and it didnít help having to dodge rocks and trees as we made our way. There was certain structure that we needed to cast to (rocks, small eddies etc.) and she just couldnít time or hit the spots. Much of my time was trying to help her and as a result the girls were on their own with other river problems. In the end the wife had a real nice one on before it spit the hook; none of the rest of us even had a bite. The girls said it was fun but also said any more river fishing I could do on my own ???

We got home early evening and I decided to load up the old boat and head north by the shack for some largemouth on Saturday. The girls wanted to fish a different lake so they went their own way and I took off at 4:30am. It was extremely foggy before the sun came up, but soon started to burn off. I had to paddle about a mile to get to the pads I was after, all you could hear were the squeaking of oars as I made my way across the lake. I threw rubber frogs for a couple of hours and never saw hide nor hair of a bass. The pike on the other hand were active and I caught a few of those , nothing over #3.

 

I spent about 4 hours and then started paddling back. I dropped off all my stuff at the truck except my rod and frog, and then took a short 300 yard paddle to some other pads to check them out.  I flipped my old black frog into the pads and Balls!, 8 cast, 5 explosions, with 3 bass making it into the net. Each one about  18"-19" they fought great winding themselves around the lily roots down into the loon crap before I could fetch them out. On the 9th cast something big hammered the frog and cut the line, taking my bait with it. Being I had put everything in the truck, I was done for the day as I didnít feel like paddling back, then back again, then back again still lol By the time I got the old boat strapped and bungee down I was beat.

Today I had another C List sale. I had an older tonneau cover on my pickup and wanted a hard shell (which I had found in a yard last week) so I can stay in it when pulling the boat if it should get late. I put the cover on the List and had a couple responses.  One guy came today at 11AM to look at the cover. He asked if I would take $50 less than the $125 I was asking. I said no. He then said how about $25 less? I said no. He said you want the full $125? I said yes. He said......ok that's a good deal. Funny world at times :cookoo:

Good luck to all fishing tomorrow! Stay safe.
