A perch and a lure!...

Stretch a little bit honey!!!

Good eats with good friends...

The neighbor shared a couple of fossils he found today, check out...

And these pretty babies watched us as we ate our meal...

Miss Lila and Larry...

And our friend Rose with Lila, she's amazing. 85 yrs and still...

We're ready to go...

Good fishing from the shore here too...

Isn't it pretty?

The rocks in this whole area are amazing...

I think the shoreline is just pretty all along here...

It's been cool enough for the flowers to still keep blooming...

All right, last shot, time to head home for the day!


This post is actually two days of activity, at least for Larry. On Wednesday, Larry and Dick headed down to Bismark Lake to fish for the afternoon. Larry caught a total of 8 fish, 3 small perch and 5 trout. We catch and release, so we don't care how big they are. As long as they fight a bit, it's all good. They got a laugh that one of the perch wasn't much bigger than the lure!

Thursday Larry and I went back to the lake and caught 7 between us. 4 for him, 3 for me. But I caught more trout!!! We got back in time to unload the boat, shower and have dinner outdoors with Dick, Lou and Jim, a friend from Minnesota. Jim tents here for about two weeks every summer and the guys enjoy playing horseshoes and darts together. They play for thousands of dollars, play $$ of course. Good thing, we'd be in the poor house.

At 6:30pm we headed down for the last evening of music at the VFW. The Ramblin' Ranger's were there this evening. We love them. They sing a great mixed rendition of 'Over the Rainbow' & 'It's a Wonderful World', done Hawaiian style. It is awesome! Wish you could hear it. The weather was great, 75 degrees and no humidity. It's truly beautiful here right now.

Note: I found a touching, non-professional version of the mix you might enjoy, but you'll need a tissue! Just click this link: Somewhere Over the Rainbow/Wonderful World

The 70th Annual Sturgis motorcycle rally is in full swing and they couldn't ask for better riding conditions. I am working with Lou at the t-shirt store for nine straight days during rally. That should be interesting. I haven't had a job for awhile now and no schedule to speak of. It'll be good for me, right?? Seriously, it will be fun and I really enjoy chatting with folks. There will be folks from numerous states represented, I'm sure. I'll try to take a few pictures if I can, there are some awesome bikes in town!
