After lunch me Cathy, Morgan and Mary headed out to the lake, skied a round, swam, caught 5 catfish and then with lightening in the distance and white caps beginning to build we headed in. Spot we fish is a 15 minute ride from the boat ramp across really exposed water if the wind is up, so we took no chances. I guess we were not too mad at the fish yesterday to stick it out and battle the elements.
We got home to a message from an out of town friend, Anne. She was at the Banita Creek Hall in Nacogdoches where a Make-A Wish benefit with local bands playing. We jumped in the car drove over there. Saw Anne and other out of town friends we don't see much like Suzi and Charley. Also a bunch of locals, some of whom we have lost track of and have not seen in years like Debbie and Dennis, Buckley, Maggie and various others. Knew quite a few of the musicians also. Nice time. It was funny to think that some of these folks were teenagers when I first laid eyes on them so long ago. I was a teenager too back in those days.
Debbie and Dennis called me fish fry Carl, an old nick name from the big fish fry days from long ago. I told them that those days would come again when I get out of school. I have enough fish in the freezer now, I just have other irons in the fire.
Between bands we ate at Sushi Ya.
We left the hall at about 12:30 and stopped at a nearby store because Cathy wanted a water. I snapped this picture of a guy sleeping in a car in the parking lot while she was in the store. He stirred just a bit when the flash went off. Cathy complained that she could not leave me alone for a minute without trouble. Allowed as how I would get my ass whipped one day. I think I could outrun this guy. The picture does not really do justice, he was a large young man, filling up a good portion of a compact car.
I bet he is a net head, he will Google and find this picture today.
We are taking off a couple of days, be back later in the week.
