Happy Birthday


Happy Birthday to The Hubby...he's only 29 ...yeah right...he's 54 today. Wow, I've been with him for 33 years of those years. Today he's doing what he really loves to do, at least one of the things he loves to do. He's fishing. Here it is the weekend and he has risen at 5 both Saturday and Sunday to catch his bait and then fish with it. He's so very funny. If you love something that much you will do anything to have fun with it. Last weekend he had this really nice rod and reel and when he cast it the bail did not set and his grip was not just right and whosh, there it flew right into the water. He and his friend spent over an hour diving down to get it (the water wasn't too deep) but they just couldn't find it. He figured that a large fish had it and took off dragging it. Well, this story gets better. He was fishing yesterday and snagged what he thought was a large fish but when it finally popped out of the water it was the rod and reel he lost last weekend, right in the spot he lost it. He thinks it was lodged between some rocks. He was so proud of himself and brought up to show me as I lounged in the hammock. It was just filthy and stinky but he spent another couple of hours cleaning it all up. He was so proud of himself. Funny guy...promise I'll have pictures when I get his camera. Happy Birthday my dear.

A very happy, happy birthday to your hubby! I thinks it's hilarious that he found his rod and reel in the river. That's a nice present the river gave back.
