Fish Stories

One fine day Tom and his boys went fishing. They were lucky enough to have a photographer along (Thank you, Matt) There were plenty of fish biting and some were keepers. Matt doubled as fish lander and holder for the photo op..

Dave and his really long pike.>>>>>

Of course someone has to clean all those keepers -- after measuring them, that is. Tom and Aaron were up to the task.

And I learned something I didn't know before. Fish get longer after you cut them up! At least in the telling of the fish stories that's the way it goes.

39 years and counting

For our anniversary today, we went to a wedding. It was a fabulous day for an outdoor ceremony. We took advantage of the beautiful setting to commemorate the day for ourselves too.

Kimberly Thayer married Marcus for the second time on Saturday.  Their first wedding was an intimate private ceremony on a beach in Florida. The bride's Floridian brother performed both ceremonies for the gorgeous, happy, free-spirited, romantic couple.

A picture of the newlyweds at our house before the wedding.

The musician. Our boy, David, provided the music for his childhood friend's wedding.
(David and Kim go way back... to their diaper days.)

We're so looking forward to the next wedding we'll be attending...our own David and his sweet Melanie.

Ladder Golf

Sometimes called Ladder Ball... pictured in the previous blog. Two golf balls are tied to a rope. Participants stand a designated distance away and toss the balls at the "ladder". Points are awarded for landing on different rungs. 3 points for the top, 2 for the center, and one for the lowest rung. The title "Ladder Golf" is linked to a website which gives a bit of a demonstration. Our game is a homemade version using PVC pipe (I think...or, ummm, er, some sort of white plastic pipe).

Come on over and try it out.

Free vocabulary lesson: two balls tied to a rope is a bola. Plural: bolas.
