I have a fishing license. Yes, yes I do. It seemed like an important thing to have since I own a boat, don't you think? A few boats are out on the lake and it sure looks peaceful...it must be relaxing to be out on the lake right now with most of the pontoons and power boats put away for the season...like mine. Throwing your line out and waiting for that slight tug of the line... maybe thinking about nothing at all. Yes, seems like these folks out on the lake this time of year have it right. Do we realize how lucky we are to have such a gem this close to home? Somewhere to idle the day? Even if I never get the chance to actually use my fishing license, it's really nice to know I can.
I'm sorry but really? Black Friday, the day after Thanksgiving, has a whole different meaning to me versus the one the retailers are spinning. Look it up! I mean, I love to shop. Don't get me wrong. Just last night I spent an hour online at Overton's picking out new items for our boat (e.g. new fenders, new VHS radio, stainless cup holders, etc.) If it's the day we're all suppose to give retailers business shouldn't it be called something like green & red Friday? I don't know, maybe a color associated with Christmas? So, let's forget Black Friday and focus on what Christmas means to you. Whatever color it may be. I personally am going to do something for others this year at Christmas. So, off I go. Okay, enough blogging. I'm headed into town for more shopping. Ho, ho, ho!
I thought it might be a nice day to drive over to Pleasant Hill to run the dogs and check on the lake level at the boat club area. What a wonderful surprise to see 4 eagles! Yes, Pleasant Hill lake seems to have both golden eagles and bald eagles. Wow! We've seen the ospreys and commorants, but eagles!
