Thursday Portrait.....



Last weekend, my life long fishing partner and frat brother Jim Shephard,
invited me to his boat on Saginaw Bay to do a little Walleye Fishing. It's a
good thing we went out Friday morning, because the rest of the week end
was choppy with 2-4 ft waves. In about 4 hours we caught 7 keeper Walleyes
(Sander Vitreus), and 3 Channel Cats (Ictalurus Punctatus).
Thats Me (Necrotizing Fasciitus), holding up 2 of the Cats. The smallest of the
3 weighed.....5.5 #'s
5.5...........? Is that some sort of Divine Omen?
See you(Fucking FINALLY!!!!!!) Thursday Night at 8:00 PM.!!!!!

Nice fish, I think you should host a fish fry for us local 55'er types. I'll bring some beer...for battering /and/ drinking!

OMG I am so jealous! I love to fish! As soon as Mr Gab and I figure out what the heck we are doing that is one of the first thing I wanna do go fishing....when we went to SD he asked me on the way out if I wanted to go fishing I was all excited till he said on the 4th in Pierre! I SAID OH HELL NO!!! to make a long story short we went fishing one yr with my parents and it was about 120 degrees in the shade! Well as it turned out it was about 105 on the fourth and I was happy enough to just tear down my house then go sit in the camper in the A/C till dark then shoot off a few fireworks and go to bed. Best birthday ever! But I still wanna go fishing!!!!!!

And I was so proud of myself for having my 55 ready...and there it sits, in my flashdrive, IN my danged work computer!

Oh well, there's always actual Friday, right?

Glad you're feeling better!
