Sam wanted to help Grandpa take some pictures today, so we went on a little photo safari.

When they say a picture is worth a thousand words, they missed the mark. These are worth a million!!!

Awesome pics Gramps. I love the macro work and daisy pictures the most, but they are all priceless.

Can't wait to get my boy out for stuff like that. He already likes to hold the camera and looks through the viewfinder. Only a matter of time.

Thanks for posting.

Ken,

Awesome post the Pixy Dust {dandelion} one does it for me. Grandma will be plucking dandelines next year but it is worth the picture and the innosence of childhood.

PS had a great trip to Dissapointment but got stuck on the campsite next to the North portage. That is a long paddle to the fishing grounds. I put the raingear on and took it off 50 times in 5 days. We had great smallmouth fishing but didn't find the walleyes till the last day. Thanks for the help.

Thanks all. Sam had a great weekend at Grandma's and Grandpa's, including catching his first fish on his Diego rod and reel:

He actually outfished mom and dad by getting one up to the boat and this one into the boat!

Moose - glad you had a good trip. That's pretty country up there!

Cool shot, Ken. Love the grin and those bare feet! gringrin

By the way, I could have used that toy camera you got the boy. I had a kid at a wedding reception/dance last night, about a 3-year-old, who kept wanting to "help" me, and dogged my steps so closely for about a 20-minute period that every time I turned around or backed up to get a better angle I was bumping into the poor little fella.

Hmmm, bring along a toy camera for the kiddie in the way. Should we call that Pro Tip #3? gringringrin

Sounds like #3 to me, and mine rents for $50/hour. gringrin

Kids are great! They seem a lot more relaxed behind the camera than most adults and do a lot of fun things to capture.

Wow! Those are great.

I recently found out I will become a Grandpa around New Years. I hope my photo skills develop such that I can take some shots like that some day. Congratulations on a memorable day.

    • I looked everywhere for the screws in the first post and nobody knew what I was talking about till I went to Ace, where I should have gone first. They are actually considered a sheetrock screw! I can't see any use for them with sheetrock but I was told it was because of the coating on them. I have a beat up old trailer house at hunting camp and they are perfect for putting warped metal siding back together and super sharp like a self piercing screw. Sometimes they are called gutter screws too. The hex ones do work great for boots and four wheeler tires.  
    • I liked Lavine too, but coming off ACL surgery you get the feeling that he will lose some of that explosiveness that made him fun to watch.
    • And remember, turkey is not pork and doesn't benefit from high internal temperatures.   It dries out if overcooked.  160 is plenty, maybe even a little less. 
    • Also, turkey doesn't need to be "low and slow" to get to be tender. Crank the heat to 250+ if you like. I've had the smaller breasts done in just 2 1/2 to 3 hrs. FWIW, I just rub it down with olive oil and apply your favorite rub.  If injecting at all, Creole Butter is a nice, quick, easy option. Apple mixed with cherry or hickory are my favorite woods to use.    
    • Well, that was interesting! The same trade that would have been good last year is seemingly brilliant this year. Butler immediately shores up our defense and creates additional scoring for this young, suddenly legitimate team. Great move to start the new year, and a good draft prospect at #16 to boot. While I do like Lavine, we seemed to do a bit better with him sidelined which is not an indictment on his talent, but rather proof that he didn't quite fit our scheme. All in all, this was about as lopsided a trade as I can think of and we should be pretty darn happy with the return we got!
    • What a treat to see a tanager.
    • Beautiful pics as always Jim.  
    • woooowww thats really cool ,,, and the pics are great ))) i just imagined fishing under sunset ))) soo nice ,, take me with you to fishing
