If the weather's even close to good I will promise you all, I will be absent from the bloggy world and the good Lord blessed me with a pretty great weekend.
I so have some Spring fever. I had promises myself back in January I was going to buy fishing license this year and fish. I have really done any fishing since I was a kid ..but I like it and I know Jack loves it. The old man(husband) use to be on a fishing craze but work has been a little demanding so the Jack cannot suffer anymore. Spending time with my boy and out on a creek bank or lakeside is truly two of my favorite things to do. So I'm excited and ready to do the thang.
I'm not the one to watch every fishing show but I believe I probably have watched them all and I will tell you I think some folks lose all the fun for making it so complicated. The only fishing show I care to watch is Bill Dance and Carolina Outdoor Journal. I also had to pick up a pole. I probably could have just found me one in building but I wanted my own. The questions I had was," What kind of reel? ....What kind of rod?" I almost went with the classic Zebco 33" but I really wanted the Ugly Stik Spin Cast Combo.
What you are thinking...
Where's the dang music?
So let's start with my all time summers on the way make me feel good song....Fishing in the dark by the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band
I'm country music lover but I really love Beach Music. If you didn't grow up in the Carolina's you might not understand the craze. Carolina beaches, shagging, and just plain relax, Van Morrison's "Brown Eyed Girl" has always been a favorite. I always wanted to be brown eyed because of this song but I have been blessed with my own brown eyed girl.
I'm one of those folks who pretends to shagg but check out the real deal.
Jack and I are suppose to start training today for the 5K event the elementary school is sponsoring. We were both quite pumped up about it but they have cancelled practice due to weather so here's Emmylou to get us in the running mood.
I'll end this ride with one more Emmylou song one for all those who grew up with red dirt between your toes. Thanks to all of you who stopped by. I wish you a most blessed day.
