Citation Smallie

June got off to a rough start but improved greatly. The gardens are coming along well after a cool spring . I just harvested six nice cabbage along with as many radishes as I could ever need. The bee hives got some new wallpaper ( check picture its all about marketing lol) and are getting stronger. Tony and I went crabbing on the 17th, we crabbed that weekend last year and netted 8 crabs. This year however we pulled in a bushel, lets hope it's a banner year for my most favorite crustacean. This past weekend was a wading trip to the upper Potomac with my mostly kayak less group. The fishing was tough with water up a bit from recent storms. Everybody seemed to figure it out but me, I came home with the big skunk. My buddy K figured it out big time netting himself a MD citation smallie at 20 1/2 Inches 3.3 pounds. Planning for and awesome cook out weekend and holiday. Keep Livin The Dream

I don't need no dam Dr

Been a rough few weeks since my last post. I spent the end of May running around getting gardens together, beehive online and the rest of spring things, coupled with a business trip and of course too much work. In the midst of this I threw my back out and just when I thought I had that back on line I got sick with what I'm guessing was the flu. My guessing comes from the fact that I gave it to my wife for her birthday and her Dr said she had the flu. Note to Husbands your wife will not want the flu for her birthday, just saying. In the process of sneezing I also strained my back again. I cant remember ever having the flu in my life, Hell I rarely catch a cold. So this thing kicked me right in the nuts, I have felt like shit for 3 weeks its almost made me want to see a Dr, almost. The flu I think I could do but my back out and the flu is bullshit. I trudged through work thinking it was just a bad cold so sorry to my co workers if I passed it along. Me being me this past Sunday I figured I felt good enough to go get a line wet. So my fishing buddy Tony and I put the yaks in and paddled out to do some fun fishing. Fishing was excellent the perch were willing and plentiful. I also managed to snag a couple under sized stripers. Felt so good to be out that we drank some beer in celebration. Not a good idea, I was apparently not quite well yet and this flu kicked my ass all day today. Guess I'm gonna have to take it easy and maybe um you know see a Dr.
