I love fishing, Addie. It is a solitary sport, but one I find relaxing and fun at the same time. The only time I get skunked is when I fish fresh water for Bass. With Bass, they're either there or not. On a bad day, no one catches any, but its always fun to try.

If I was fishing for supper I always tried to make the line land near the rocks. That is where the water is the purest. The rocks purify the water. If I wan't looking for suppe. I didnt' care where the line landed. And it was mostly catch and release.

30ish damp, dark, dreary and raining, all the snow has melted!

Time for some retail therapy to brighten my mood!

It's always sunny in the mall!

It rained all day yesterday, so the weather is cool and humid; high of 63F, low of 45F, humidity at 83%, and overcast. I like this type of weather once in a while because then I don't have to decide whether I am going to work in the house, in the yard, or in the garage. This is when the inside of the house gets cleaned up, painted up, and fixed up.
