So guess who's pregnant now. What a surprise last night. Yea, I am going to be a Grandpa again. Ell's kids are very excited to have some cousins. And he/she is going to be born in April, a very good month. I just pray to God that the kid is a better bass fisherman than G Man. But I am a little disappointed in Griffin. I told him he could marry her but I didn't think he was going to have sex with her. He didn't ask me that or I would have said no.


EXTRA EXTRA READ ALL ABOUT IT THE LEADVILLE LEGEND IS PREGNANT. The legend will live on. Hoping it's a little legend. Lisle part Deux, the Sequel. Congrats to Lisle and to Christian on the successful impregnation.

CRICKY, look what I found swimming a couple hundred yards off shore today in Wahweap Bay. I had just landed at 2.5 lb bucketmouth and was heading off to a new spot when I spotted this guy. He was not going in the right direction either. I tried to get him to turn around but snakes don't herd well. Anyway I thought, WWSID,What would Steve Irwin do. But I wasn't about to grab it by the tail so I did the next best thing. I took it into about 2 feet of water, said, Nice meeting you, and cast him to the bank. He was a little cold but he should have warmed back up fairly quickly, it was 103 here today and I can't wait for my headache to go away.

I needed to hire a new operator for my trackhoe so I put an ad in the newspaper under help wanted. The first person to call was a guy named Donald, so I told him to come out and we would give him a try. He met me at the jobsite and I told him to dig a hole and I would come back and check on him. Well, when I got back he was completely asleep at the controls. Either that or he was praying that I would hire him. He had a great personality and said he was a great dancer and would be happy to entertain the guys during lunch hours but he just didn't cut it and spent way too much time texting instead of working. I sent him down the road kickin horse turds. Sorry Donald.

I really don't think there is any comment required for this photo other than I don't know what I think is funnier, Cassidy or the look of pride and satisfaction on Ellery's face. What I do know is that Nicole is going to be watching her cosmetics a little closer to see if anything is missing.

The kids were going through our box of old photos and found this one. We have no idea who it is. We would appreciate any help you can give in putting a name to this face. Thanks.

Griffin and I caught these fatties in honor of Shannon's birthday. I can't recall the last time that we caught a small bass. They are all about the same size and getting bigger. I am sure as the smallmouth get active we will start catching some smaller fish, but not yet. The water is still pretty cold. We need to gain 10 degrees in most areas before it will really get good. But what a ball. G Man set his record for personal best with that 3.8 pounder.
