Sunday, my fishing buddy and I headed south to fish some waters known to have my favorite species of fish, the brown trout. I was excited, especially since I hadn't caught one this year.

As we arrived a big storm with tons of thunder and flashes of lightning served up a lot of heavy rain. We decided we might take an afternoon nap to pass the time until the rains let up. It was a good plan but I never even leaned back in the seat. Sitting there looking at the water stimulated...

A few weeks ago, I was at church and the pastor began to talk about what the bible says about heaven. For all of you that don't go for the whole church and God kind of thing, don't worry. I'm not here to proselytize. I'm a religious/spiritual guy and when I reflect on life and write about what is going on in my kind of off-center brain, a little background helps others understand what may sometimes make no sense at all.

Now, back to heaven. I was listening to this fantastic...

I know that the Memorial Day holiday is traditionally focused on our military and rightfully so. The men that have died in service of our country deserve a special place in our hearts and lives. My favorite book says that the act of laying down one's life for his friends is the greatest act of love. I don't think many would disagree.

Regardless of how I personally feel about any this war or that war or the next war, the fact that there are people in this country willing to risk...

Sunday morning I rose early and knowing that I was going fishing in the secret lake, well, I skipped going to church. I had to get the mowing done. It takes a while to mow three acres, especially when using the not so reliable Frankenmower. My mower is mostly made up of cast-offs found on Craigslist and junkpiles. I bought a new one a couple of times but have found that my hilly terrain is better suited for an overpowered monstrosity with knobby ATV tires on the rear.

So I ran...

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...
