New Addition to Family/Sneaking Out for Some Brookies

It has been a couple weeks since I've posted something in the blog.  That is because my wife and I welcomed this little girl to our family on June 12th. 

She has been great and a complete joy for my wife and I.  I've been adjusting from a life of little priorities, to a life with more important priorities when it comes to how I spend my free time for the past couple weeks.

The wife and baby have been doing great though and my wife gave me a pass to fish this past Friday.  My friend kidnapped me from the in-laws house and I headed for a trout stream that has been good to me over the years.

Brother was looking through my blog and said "you sure eat a lot of summer sausage".  Got that right, life is too short to eat a bologna sandwich on a trout stream.  I like to do it right.

Good to get out for a little bit.  Might be the last time I'm able to hit a trout stream this summer if we keep getting 90 degree days.  Fingers crossed for more rain, cool days, and some free time soon.


  1. Congrats! If birthdays are an indication of anything, she's be a good kid. My birthday's the 12th ; )

    1. June 12th must be a popular birthday. My CEO of the company I work for was June 12th as well. Hopefully she likes to fish like we do.

  2. God has given you and your wife a beautiful little girl. I can still remember my first, a girl 45 years ago. Love her time does move fast.

    Also great outing with some wild jewels. I agree NO Bolo.

    1. Thank you very much. Some of the food you prepare and eat is what I strive for.

  3. Hello from Australia,
    Please accept my belated congratulations on the birth of your daughter as I only just came across your blog.
    Lovely little stream and I am always amazed at the beauty of brook trout. Pity they never thrived here in OZ, except in a few limited areas.

    1. Thank you very much. Australia makes up for lack of brook trout in other areas. Hope to visit there one day.
