Failure......

...... for those of you who read the previous entry about the explorers and the trout, allow me to extrapolate a wee bit.......

..... while we all had a GREAT time, we were, in all actuality, a complete failure in our venture to catch/lure a fish into Glad container subjugation......

..... however, all was not a total loss......... we (the Royal We) DID manage to catch five healthy naiads.....

.... and if you have to Google "naiad" to figure out what they are, then consider yourself very, very lucky........ for they are nasty looking creatures.....

.... who knew that they lived up here in Tennessee in crawfish country??..... but hey, they definitely do..... and nary a crawfish OR trout fry was seen anywhere while on our fieldtrip.....

.... The Explorers didn't seem to mind much, though, and had a whale of a time throwing rocks into the river and/or bashing them against boulders to "see what was inside" once they fractured.... my goodness, what would I give to have so much boisterous energy!.... thanks for a wonderful visit, Bou!...

.... anyway, today has dawned bright and warm, and The Missus and I are off to visit the tally-man to get our annual tax refund..... and if the weather holds, I suspect the backyard hammock will get a bit of exercise this afternoon!.....

Bullshit So Far

Those were truly the ugliest water bugs I have ever seen. They were MEAN looking!

No fish could be found to be caught, but hell we could have caught a kayaker or two and I got to use my first out house.

A good time was held by all!

THANK YOU! The boys had a blast. And here you and I were, wearing three layers, and there the boys were in short sleeved tshirts, jeans and barefoot... I asked them today if they were cold and Ringo said, 'nah, but that water was REALLY cold'. They seemed not to notice they SHOULD have been cold... they had such a great time.
