How many men does it take to lose a fish. Answer: 4

One to throw the line out, one to hook the fish, one to take the hook out and one to lose it over the edge of the boat whilst cleaning it.

This was the result of DH fishing day yesterday. His uncle threw the line, DH caught the fish, FIL took the hook out and handed it to FIL friend who whilst cleaning the fish out over the side of the boat, got hit by a rogue wave and lost it in the water.

Total of fish caught for 9 hours fishing in one day: 1
Total of fish lost for 9 hours of fishing in one day: 1
Bring home total: 0

Funniest thing is we live right on the coast and 10 minutes drive from Lake Macquarie, but they have spent 5.5 hours driving to "the best fishing spot" for A fish.

Hope they have better luck tomorrow!!!!!!!!! Maybe they should change the bait.

MIL and I are still giggling!!!!

Today was one of my worst days. The weather outside is awful and my pain is at an all time high (see my vent). Well, DH made tacos and fixings and bundled all of it and me up and we headed to the hospital where we had a picnic with DD and her fiance. He had a bad day too and the only ones he wanted to visit today were us. When they saw the food he started to cry.

I had managed to get some cookies baked and got DH to include them and a coke. Well "the fiance" was just beside himself. They walked down the hall with us when we left and I got my normal hug from DD, and her guy comes over and gives me a huge bear hug and says, "Mom, thanks for taking such good care of us when I know you don't feel any better than I do."

Well, I am smiling from ear to ear. They may not be married yet, but he just became my dear son. And my DH continues to amaze me as well.

I was dreaming last night about when I was younger ... gas was 14.9 cents/gallon ... a McD burger was 19-cents (22 cents with cheese), a Frito-chili pie (with onion and cheese) was 25-cents - same as a cherry-vanilla Coke. When it was half-time on a televized football game - you got to watch the bands marching on the field.

I didn't have to worry about the "overhead" - house payments, gas, electric, water, etc... all I had to do was take out the garbage, help cook and wash dishes, make good grades in school ....

Someone once said, "you're not old until your dreams turn to regrets".

I'm feeling VERY old.

Buck and I were out on our front porch, as we always are this time of the year, enjoying the breeze and cooler temps than inside the house.

Our outside kitties were just finishing up their supper when Tumble, one of the almost 3-month-old kittens, rocketed onto my lap. "Love me mommy!"

Yep. Tumble and I had a long and loving "love" fest. Shortly thereafter, Shadow, jumped onto my lap for exactly the same attention.

Life is good and I KNOW I'm loved.

My son just conned me out of five bucks, I couldn't help but laugh. That kid is going to be good with money when he grows up, not that he isn't already!

"Daddy, I bet you $5 I know where you got those shoes."
"OK, I'll bite, where did I get these shoes?"
"Not where did you get them but where you got them, and right now you got them on your feet!"

I just laughed and gave him the $5.
