Close To Home

The last few days my wife and two grandsons spent a mini vacation at a friends cabin on the river.  Not quite a mile from our house, we enjoyed getting to see our neighborhood from a new angle.  It’s tough to do much fishing on the river with a six and ten year old.  The attention span just doesn’t reach from shore to shore.  I did manage to hook a nice smallmouth on my ultralight rod.  They do present an awesome fight!


The sunrise on the porch with my coffee was my only quiet time.  A six year old has so many questions and so much energy that it can drain the life right out of my brain.


The boys found many treasures.  Rocks that look like rocks, cars, rockets, cats, fish, bowls and a triangle.

    My mom always reminds me when I drop my two daughters off for a week with her that being a grandparent is the best. You get to spoil them for a week and then send them home for the parents to deal with the consequences. I got one more day and then I have a weeks worth a consequences that will be coming home!
