Let me say I wish I had something exciting to tell you, but I don’t. Just waiting for Peter to get back from his vacation with his daughter. They went to Padre Island for a week. And, yes, he did ask me if I wanted to go, but growing up here gave me all the sand and sunburn I ever wanted. I know he knows that while he’s away Houston got pounded with rain. Of course, I would like to have some rain for my pond, but looks like it ain’t gonna happen.

Seems my turtles are roaming the neighborhood. The turtles are the main reason I quit fishing in the pond. They always got the bait before I even had a chance to land a catfish that was stocked in the pond six years ago.
