very nice crispy fish, harry.

thatsa beautiful ah'beetsa, rock.

we had a great day today. we had our little league baseball team picnic. it was a blast.

the parents won the kids vs. parents game, 5 - 2. well, actually we let the starting pitcher's little 3 year old brother get up to bat, and he hit a grand slam to win the game when we gave them 4 outs in the final inning.

then we had pizza, and cake, and a huge water gun battle.

next up is a team fishing trip. i'm thrilled that our team has so many great kids, and good parents.

by the time we got home, it was too late to cook, so to my surprise dw asked me to pick up chili dogs, fries, and cole slaw for dinner.

like i said, it was a great day.

harry, we'll go out ocean fishing for summer fluke with the team and parents. but i promised my boy i'd take him out in the ocean night fishing for bluefish and striped bass before the end of the summer.

you and brother bolas should get out and wet a line. i would love to fish with you guys, but i think we'd be laughing and drinking too hard to catch anytghing (besides colds).

It sure does sound like a great day Tom

I love the sound of the water gun battle...we have some Nerf water guns, Steve and I like to get out in the back garden and have water fights

The food you have throughout the day sounds lovely too

kylie, we brought a bunch of nerf water guns to the park today.

you have to get the nerf hydro cannon. it looks like a bazooka and when pumped up, delivers a good blast of about 2 cups of water with good force.

when i was being attacked by all of the little kids today, one good blast from the hydro cannon stopped them in their tracks, lol.
