A Cold Front, A Warm Heart

Posted 05-14-2014 at 12:06 PM by mridenour

Well, a cold front has stormed through the area and yesterday the temps were only in the 50's. It was really humid though and the skies were overcast and gloomy. The weekend was over and I went back to work on Monday to get some rest. There wasn't a lot of resting done there but at least I wasn't driving all over three or four counties.

Tuesday was a long day and I didn't think I would have time to fish before my regular Tuesday evening appointment since I was bringing some freshly...

My Best Friend

Posted 05-14-2014 at 12:04 PM by mridenour

Got up yesterday morning and was blessed with a severe outbreak of allergies. My watering eyes dripped onto my shirt as I tried to do my daily writing in the early morning hours. My nose itched and ran as I alternated between coughing and sneezing. My head felt as if it were a fishbowl and I contemplated just throwing in the towel and going back to bed.

One cup of coffee down and I was nearly functioning. I went ahead and got ready for work and finally headed out the door in my red...

The Secret Lake

Posted 05-14-2014 at 12:03 PM by mridenour

Last night I headed home from work feeling tired and my head was pounding. I could hear the sofa calling my name. But as I drove (I have about a 40 minute commute) I began to relax and my headache released its grip on my brain. It was overcast and about 60 degrees with a pretty stiff wind blowing, not perfect fishing conditions but close enough. The couch could wait.

I made the phone call to my neighbor letting him know that I would be on his property and my a slight alteration in...

'Fessin' Up.

Posted 05-14-2014 at 12:02 PM by mridenour

I guess I'll 'fess up here and let you guys know that I have had a long hard fight with depression. To be honest, I have had a long hard fight with a lot of things. I am involved with a 12-step program called Celebrate Recovery. This isn't a commercial for that, it is just a big part of my life. Every Tuesday night I help lead a group of men in the right direction...at least that is what we try to do. That meeting starts at 6:30 and I get off work at 3:30. I only work a few minutes from my church...

Maybe somewhere down the road I'll start making them, but it just didn't make sense considering the costs of making a setup, time, and learning curve.
You may decide otherwise.
I set up a jig and had a great time building leaders this winter. Not that hard, just followed some sites and articles. Now we will see how they work in...
