There has not been much happening the past couple of weeks worthy of blogging about. Watching it rain, grumbling about the cold, pretty much wraps it up. We did have a couple of nice days the end of last week. Spent those helping place a metal roof on an elderly ladies house. For the next three days, I couldn’t get up out of my chair. I’m having a problem getting my brain and body in sync. The brain says I still can; the body says I should forget about it. Seems the body is wining. OLD
The first few days of this week were accompanied by more rain and cold temps. Did manage to take care of a couple projects that made the boss happy. Two new full view storm doors on the house, and a new gas grill.
The sun finally came out today, just in time. I had volunteered to cook 80 lbs. of fish for the local food pantry. We had planned it for today. My brother, my neighbor, and I started frying fish at 9 am and finished at 1215. I think the facility delivered 90 plates to elderly folks that aren’t able to get out, and fed sixty or so at the facility. I’m glad that commitment is behind me.

This coming Sunday I’m heading out on a guy’s only trip to Guntersville, AL. Crappie fishing for the week. My brother, a cousin, and I, have a cottage rented on the shores of lake Guntersville from Sunday to Friday. If the weather cooperates, we hope to catch a mess or two of crappie. In case the fish don’t cooperate, we are also taking the golf clubs.
All this down time at home had me thinking of some past Casita adventures. All the pictures in todays post were taken in the pre-blog days. The memories are still vivid, and I find myself thinking I should write them down just for myself. There’s something about that first or second adventure that just can’t be duplicated.

Anyway, things are looking up. Wanda tells me she wants to attend a mountain dulcimer festival in Mountain View, AR near the end of the month. That leaves me time to make a trip to East Texas if the fish start biting on the Trinity. As the weather improves, opportunities are becoming more attractive.

Hopefully, the next post will be filled with photos of FISH…….jc
