Saturday is Red

Because I say so. It is in my mind. But that has nothing to do with anything. Stephanie went to Lexington for The Rolex Cross Country Event today. I was going to go too but the thought of riding on a school bus for a total of 10 hours in one day was not too appealing to me so I opted not to attend.

Joe and I had company for breakfast this morning. My brother-in-law and sister-in-law came over for the day. After eating a most delicious breakfast of bacon, sausage, scrambled eggs and biscuits we all headed down to the pond for some fishing. I myself don't like to fish. I find it incredibly boring but everyone else liked it.

That is Morris and Cindy. They are totally in love with each other. She is from Mobile Alabama and you should hear some of the things she says! She calls a flyswatter a flyflapper and she calls a garden hose a hose pipe! Too funny. Anyway, they had a grand time fishing.

Meanwhile I gave my babies a red apple. One for Jones and one for Dakota.

Naturally they wanted more but I only brought two.

Back to Morris and Cindy now. Cindy cracked Morris and me up when she tried to catch her first fish. By golly she was going to muscle that big ole catfish in and when she did the fishing line broke and she almost fell backwards. Here is Morris imitating her.

Morris is Joe's brother. Can you tell?

Cindy provided the entertainment for the day.

What is that on the end of your line Cindy?

Oh, it's just a minner. She doesn't call them minnows, they are minners. See what I mean?

She lost part of her fishing pole in this picture. It went flying when she cast!

Talk about funny! Then Morris and she got to the business of catching some catfish. The pond needs to be fished out a bit anyway.

Is this how you do it Grandpa?

Yes dear, but you have to be patient when fishing. Ok, Momma told me I needed to be really quiet so I wouldn't scare the fish away.

You are such a sweetie McKenzie. Not spoiled at all, just like Abby!

Fresh catfish! I grew up in the Midwest close to the Wabash River and there is nothing like fresh catfish. People who turn their nose up have nooo idea what they are missing. Hope you are happy, now I am HUNGRY! Any mushrooms up yet in your area?

Trailboss said...

Nope, no mushrooms yet. I am sure we will see some soon though.

We had a beautiful day here today. I wish 300 of the 365 days of the year could be just like today!

Yes, I am an American living in Italy. My hubby serves in the military and we are stationed here for the next three years. Beautiful horses. =o)

I used to fish all the time when I was a boy, but, like you, I find it as exciting as watching paint dry these days. You and I can stay in the kitchen and make iron-skillet cornbread and homemade sweet slaw while they catch catfish to fry, okay?
I had fun catching up on your blog this morning. I don't drop by as often as I would like because my computer is so slow. You have over 250 pictures on your main page now, and it takes forever to load your blog on my balky pc. I'll see you when I have plenty of time, though.

I hate fishin' too.

Daniela said...

Wow, this brings back memories. I am with you girl. I always thought fishing was sooo boring. I come from a huge family of fishermen though. My dad loved to fish and often took my sister and me. I HATED it and always felt so sorry for the fish. To this day I don't eat the little finny, slimy things.

Fried catfish, fried green tomatoes, and fried okra. Yummy.
Or mayber I should have said fried green tomaters. Looks like a fun FAMILY day.

Remember Sue and Charlie's at KY Lake? And the trips to The Hitchin' Post? That was fun!

Trailboss said...

Yes So, the Hitchin' Post had that fake horse out front that I used to pretend was mine! That is about all I remember about that place.

Looks like a fun fun day! It was beeeyooteeful today, wasn't it?
Yep, I'm lucky enough to have Doc Ceglinski put up with me. They've been really good to me and my nine dogs!
