A Fish Tale

They tell me that Crestline’s Lake Gregory (a glimpse of which we can catch from our dining room and game room windows) has excellent fishing. Jerry and I aren’t much into fishing, although it appeals to me, and I’ve done a bit of it, usually with pitiful results, having more excellently tangled my bait in overhead trees and underwater roots than ever snagging fish. Recently, I came across a picture of a huge catfish, about which I blogged here. Today, I found a video you must see about the landing of a gigantic fish. Makes me want to go down into our basement, find my tangled up pole, and head down to Lake Gregory.

Still full of life and ready to be on the move, Shirley at 84 years old feels blessed to have lots of energy and to be full of optimism. She was married to Jerry for 63 years, and grieves yet at his death in August of 2019. They have 4 children, 13 grandchildren and 11 great-grandchildren...all beautiful and highly intelligent--of course. :)

Quite amazing, Linda. Would you keep such a fish if you caught one? Somewhere in some comments, someone asked what they did with the fish. I said, “I don’t know, but I hope they released it.” But…to be quite honest, if I caught such a whopper, I probably would have it mounted so that I could brag until my dying day.


Caleb and I went trout fishing last weekend and caught 46 trout in 6 hours. Most where over 2 lbs.(obviously almost all were thrown back)
love you,AP
