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.
Dang! Look at that pole bend!
Dinner at their house will be yummy tonight. My niece and her little girl came over also.
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!
