Whew!....Lordy! Holy..sha moly!
Pete!....I took one look, and thought, this will make a nice evening read
I will try to digest it tonight, and reply then
David and I just finished reading your post. It sounds like it was a blast but painful to say the least. I wish you had gotten a quick snap shot of that 38 incher! But I have a feeling the wind was so hard you wouldn't have been able to get a clear picture even if you wanted to!
Man are those lures expensive! I can see why you were bummed out about loosing the last one. Is that a type of lure you know how to make? Were you able to get your lure making supplies out of the old house? I keep thinking I remembered you saying something about making lures but that it was hard to do but that you really enjoyed making them.
I have to say that I can't blame you one bit for needing a break. You have been going 15 - 20hrs per day for 2 months solid trying to get everything done! Between fixing up the old house, moving furniture, keeping up the land and doctors appointments you've earned a day (and more) to get in some good fishing time! Hopefully today you don't have much planned and can rest up. How are your pain levels doing today? Is your meds helping somewhat?
How is your wife doing? Did her tonsil surgery go okay? Last time I heard from you know you were VERY worried to say the least. I really hope she recovers from her surgery quickly. Where you able to find those old x rays for the doctor to compare?
I have to get going and try to be productive. I hate to say it but I have a terrible case of laziness today. I just can't seem to get my body to go! hehe. Hope you are able to rest up today!
Lots of Love*warm hugg* David and Dani
