Hot Rod


Mother's Day this year was such a nice treat. I felt spoiled from the moment my bunch barrelled into the bedroom with heart shaped Weight Watchers toast and gifts and big smiles. Sure, the dog did an acrobatic leap through the air and secured the heart toast in one swoop, but the thought was pure gold and I felt loved. Among the heartfelt, hand made gifts was a painted flower pot filled with seeded soil (that amazingly made it all the way home from school in Max's backpack!!) and a paper tea cup with a tea bag in it and homemade cards. I also received a really big treat: My very own, very first, PINK fishing pole! After getting the boys and Rob set up for fishing this spring, and happily watching them go at it, it occurred to me that I might, in fact, like to fish. So, Rob was sweet to purchase me my own license and rod. I am now the proud owner of a Lady Shakespeare rod in a pearly pink. Here I am after getting back from Dean Pond Mother's Day. I even was brave enough to bait my own hooks! Nice rod, eh?

Kay, the only thing I've caught so far have been little sunfish, Bluegills, we think. Not worth the trouble!

Mom, they gave me toast they cut out with a cookie cutter! Sammy said it was delicious.

Ernie, yeah, we have been having fun with it. I think Rob and I are much more into it than the kids. They usually poop out on us in a half hour or so, and we wind up whining... "c'mon.... just another few minutes.... just ONE more minute... C'MAAAAWWWWN". And no, no luck for me on Mom's Day, but it was fun just the same.
