Well, it has been close to a year since my last blog... I think I need to do something about that.
Since the Wild West Tour of last year I have really began to enjoy this "being retired" stuff. It gives me time to do things I have never allowed myself to do before-
Russ, my friend and I have started fishing. Notice, I did not say about CATCHING...
This is one of the more humbling things I have ever done before. We have certainly not done anything to harm the population of fish in Lake Lanier. We have, on the other hand, done everything possible to keep Bass Pro Shop in business. Other than a couple of catfish, all we have done is decorate the bottom of Lake Lanier with every type of bait, lure, line and piece of tackle we could drop, dunk, float, or cast upon the water.
I have come to the realization that floating on that water for hours at a time gives you a wonderful opportunity to improve your prayer life. Although I am often convienced that God doesn't listen when I am on that lake. I am sure he has been well entertained watching me try to get a fish to take whatever bait I am trying to use.
I will begin adding some other images of our escipades as time goes on...
I have also begun drawing and working in watercolors again. It is a challenge with my sight situations, but so be it... I enjoy the fun of it!
