Recommended Posts

Hit the big 44 yesterday and celebrated at La Pub last night. Our game in Floyd got to the bottom of the 2nd innning with our team ahead 5-2 with runners on 1st and 2nd with no outs when mother nature blasted us with heavy rains, wind and lightning. Had a good time at the bar last night with the guys and there girl friends. Shots and peers were flowing and the pizza was great as usual. Working the next 4 days straight umpiring. Catch and release a few for me guys....

Thanks guys! Should be a Grampa here in a couple of weeks..

Was getting ready to go to work and Amanda noticed our cat of 17 years is not acting right, called her to take her medication and she's not getting up. If she's still there at lunch I'll have to take her to the vet... Yep were all getting older...

We buried our 17 yr. old cat Corsica Saturday morning right next to Kiki and Precious.

Todd things were crazy this weekend, worked 4 games this weekend and my scheduler wanted to know if I could work a 5th game earlier on Father's Day, my butt's dragging but I have lost a few pounds with the work as of late, which I guess is a good thing.

Working Men's fast-pitch tonight in Prospect, playing in Floyd Tuesday, umpiring in Utica Wednesday, Rome Thursday, off for Amanda's dance in Camden Friday night and Saturday and working 2 games Sunday night. That will be 32 games already for the month on June and we still will have a week plus left to be scheduled, crazy buzy crazy

She lived a long life and died painlessly in her sleep. Rosa picked her up from a "Free Kitten add in the paper" for me when we started dating. Just went through my divorce and was awaiting a judges decision on custody of my kids, a long couple of months, my most vivid memory I have of her was at about 2 years old she got into the closet and decided to bat around a rapala I had on a long rod and got a treble stuck in her lip and the another treble in her back paw. Now think about that ...Lip and back paw, wish I had a digital then... I did the surgery myself and did a fantastic job. She will be missed, thanks guys..

Did my first Men's fast-pitch game last night and it was pretty easy., looking forward to the next.

Todd - Rosa said you called... I'll give you a jingle after work

Tim, sorry to hear about your cat also. We have 5 cats, 2 dogs and a horse so I certainly know what it's like to be attached to animals and it's never easy losing a valued furry friend frown

Tim, sorry about the cat. Saying "the cat" does not give it the credit it deserved. Takes a cat owner to appreciate the nuance of owning one. They are actually more dependent than a dog on their owners. My 15 year old goes in for his annual lion cut next week. He's [PoorWordUsage]'d for a couple of days but then thinks he's the bomb when he patrols the back fence. I can't imagine the fun you went through in the surgery room.

Tim,

The loss of a pet always hurts, but the memories temper it some, I've found. Just the same, I am sorry to hear of your loss.

As far as the age thing goes, ever hear the Jerry Reed song about yellow teeth? It's a good laugh!! After the last 2 wks weather, some remodeling, helping to build a wooden guide boat and stading in cold streams, I'm 45 feeling like 95. Still, I can't complain, if I do, it'll likely get worse! lol

Thanks Ray.. Guys I apologize for not being very outdoorsy the last couple of months. Besides dance in Camden this weekend I volunteered and umpired the Rome Tourney as well Saturday and Sunday, did 7 games total for the benefit and worked two games last night and didn't get home till 11 p.m. luckily I found an hour to get the grass cut before the rain hit.. Todd I'll get it together soon when things wind down. Amanda has practice this week M-W-F 4:30 to 6 p.m. and I have a Men's Fastpitch game to umpire tonight at 8:15..

Tim, after this week the pontoon will be in the water (have to take it in to get a seat repaired). Any time you want to make a quick run let me know. I can’t guarantee fish like Thunder or Chef, but I’ll give it heck!

    • How deep were the trout running?  We heard ultra deep on Crow to 30 ft.  The 30 ft number came from people actually catching them.   Thanks for the pics!  I like the fly rod smallie.
    • try the raid spray on grass at bottom. 
    • Here are some pictures from this years trip!
    • How do you keep ants off your feeders, especially hummingbird and oriole feeders? I've tried Toro and Raid sprays on the post but it seeks the birds don't like that smell either and i don't see many for a while. Has anyone else experienced that? Any good ideas?
    • I should’ve looked closer - I have an eyes open pic too. 😌  Tough to tell sometimes on my phone screen.  
    • Among other wilds that have moved into our urban areas, we can now add loons.  There is a breeding pair on the lake formerly known as Calhoun, mostly staying on the west and northwest sides.  But there is also a bunch of yearlings fishing the east side, numbering maybe six or seven and so unafraid that they come right up to the 36th Street dock and try to steal suckers being used for musky bait.  Maybe the call of the wild is not really so alien to the South side of Minneapolis, but it looks like the loons have moved in and can be heard calling from time to time. 
    • Sounds like you guys gave her heck up there to find them. I'd be praying thanks, too if I got that one on! ☺️
    • Quick recap:   Weather was too darn “nice”!  Upper 80’s - 90’s; no wind to speak of; mostly sunny. Water temps were anywhere from 64 - 71 depending on location and day.   We looked the lake over from end to end, marking up our map and returning to some places where we saw fish either later the same day or a couple days later.  We could literally see the transition from spawn to post spawn happening during our stay.  Being new to both muskie fishing and that lake, we spent time in dead water as much as good water but feel like we got a pretty good handle on how to go about setting up a more efficient return visit.  It was a lot work and long hours but I’d go back this weekend if I could so I must’ve enjoyed it.   A few pics as hoped for:
    • big dave 2 and leech, darn good lookin meals!!!!  Dave have a good weekend!!!!
    • Ok Dave have a good weekend. Hope you get over the whole butt hurt Leech deal! Not sure where you got that I don't like folks smoking or grilling things?  I know I do enough. Have fun! 🙂
