Many of you have asked where in the world I've been.

All I know is that after 7 plus years of blogging and a different lappy, which I don’t like, I seem to have lost my blogging fervor.

Someday, when you least expect it, I will post again.

For those of you still waiting I say thank you.

Meanwhile, I am rather prolific on twitter. Find me: @KeethaB

Wherein a Young Lad Catches His First Fish


AKA Sunday on a lake which is very near my city, Lake Nepco.

(Disclaimer: This event did NOT occur on a Sunday, but I SAVED it specially for the SIMC post. You'll thank me later - - - ;-)

Captain Piper welcomes us on board.

Not to be outdone, First Mate Mack takes the wheel.

While Mack pilots, Miss Piper plays ship stewardess.

Suddenly Papoo gets an idea.
An idea that is NEVER too far out of his mind.

Let's go fishing!

One cast and Papoo hooks into something good!

"Come here, Mack!! You can reel it in!"

"What a beauty! A chubby large mouth bass."

"Here, Mack. Let me show you how to HOLD your bass by the lip."

"I don't think I want to touch it!"

"Let ME, Papoo!" says Piper.

"Ooooo, Papoo! He's kinda slimy and stinky!
I don't really LIKE holding him."

"Let ME try, Papoo!!!
I LIKE him - - - and next time I want to catch a fish."

No fish or children were harmed in the filming of this blog post.
Mr. Large Mouth was released to swim again
And be caught another day.

My city is Wisconsin Rapids, Wisconsin

WHY do my children look like they've grown 5 years?!?!!? PLEASE give them hugs and kisses from their Mama! I miss them so much. They are having so much fun...I can't thank you enough, Mom & Dad. I love you all!

P.S. Have you seen the video of our trip so far?

Some of my fondest childhood memories are of fishing with my grandpa. Their wonderful smiles say it all.

Love it! Three cuties and nothing is sweeter than kids learning to fish with their grand-dads!

Happy Sunday!
Traci said...

This fun, adorable post is topped only by the happy ending: the fish was released. What a great, caring crew!

Be well, Keetha.

Nice post. That's how I fish - catch and release. Mostly because they are always small.

Unknown Mami said...

This is a beautiful post. Wonderful capture of memories being made.

Sorry I'm late but haven't had time/connect to blog.
Thanks for your visit and comment!
Not fishing for cooking?
I used to fish with my dad but we ate all we got :)

Nita Davis said...

Looks like a wonderful time. I am with Mack though, someone else can hold the fish.
