Labor Day weekend
A three day weekend!
On Saturday the mailman delivered mail to our door. (Usually it's about a 1/4 mile from the house to our postal box) There was a package from the Iowa cousins. You see BT fixed his Harley Davidson in the blacksmith shop a couple of weeks ago. Dan was very impressed and sent him this Harley T-shirt. The hat is from another cousin a year or so ago. It's a Harley Davidson hat from Sturgis! Cousins are good to BT.
Sarah and Rusty were here for 4 days. This is what you do when the electricity goes off for almost 2 hours. There is no charging cell phones, no surfin' the internet, no showers or hair curling, thus the faceless photo.
The vines I asked about the other day? Still unidentified, but look really good draped over one of the wardrobes.
Just received an email from Tim, a friend who works for Missouri conservation, he tells me they are Bristly Greenbrier.
For more information see his report. Thanks TIM!!!
So Sunday we went to the cabin fishing.
But first Sarah goes for a swing.
Rusty caught the first fish.
Sarah then caught one, and another one and more.
I even got into the fishing thing. BT was busy baiting and repairing the girls lines. This was the stringer full when we quit. They were all bluegills. Good eating after BT filets them.
BUT WAIT . . .nothing compared to Jeremy's 3 day fishing trip.
This scale is holding the biggest fish. No you can't see the fish, it wouldn't fit into the picture. It weighed 77 pounds!
I can't think of a comment to leave on this picture.
Day 1 of the Mississippi River/Meramac River trip.
Hope everyone had a great Labor Day!
