the fishing wasn't that great where we were in Maine, but I did manage to get this shot of the husband and a pretty good sized bass

Good Morning to you. I hope you are feeling fine and the low grade fever has gone. Any news from MA? Tom arrived at 2AM and like a fool I waited up for him. Before I left for TOPS he wanted a Reed's breakfast. He did not see an egg in Finland. Breakfast there heavy on pastries. The shots yesterday raised me to 238 nothing like the first one which put me in the 400's. I hope you are pain free. My knees are really good. Take good care and have a good day. I care. Reed

eddie shooting off some poppers on the 4th

he rigged up a launcher from a piece of a metal swiffer mop handle that broke, and figured out the best angle to shoot it, so that you'd get the best echo over the lake, for maximum BOOM
