Big Fish Award!

Hannah kicked butt at the Youth Tournament. Her bass was 5.5 lbs which won her the lunker, or big fish, trophy and she finished 2nd overall in her age group of 8-11 year olds. Yeah Hannah! Your dad would not be prouder if you were elected President of the USA.

It was a fun weekend at camp but holy crap - it was so utterly blazing hot. The pool was a lovely 86 degrees and we all got a little too much sun.

I do have to say that I wish I could stop freaking out about money all the time. I always worry if the all-mighty dollar is going to stretch a far as it needs to these days. Everything always works out for us but it sure takes a toll on the ol' nerves while Ms. Karma decides which was to fall.

Well, that's about all for now but I do have to say that I hate hot humid weather. HATE IT. Am I the only woman in the world that has a chafe on her thigh?

Congrats to Hannah!!! I haven't been fishing once this year! We use to go to Prong Pond to catch small mouth bass 3-4 times a week, but we are just WAY TO BUSY THIS SUMMER! I hope to cast a line soon.

As for freaking out about money...I'm with ya! There's never enough, but somehow we always manage to dip into next weeks budget and keep eating macaroni and butter...and if we're lucky we get mac-n-cheese.

Try some Crisco on your chafe... If it makes you feel any better, I"m having my period this week.

Way to go Hannah! Tell Dad you will need a room for all of your trophies! Sorry, Sheri, I'm not with you on the hot and humid, cuz I love it! The lake is finally warm enough to sit in! I know it will only last a week or so, so I need to take advantage while I can. Actually I think the humidity breaks tonight, so you will get some relief! Gold Bond medicated powder for your other problem!
And your not the only one!

Good for Hannah!
I wish I could stop freaking out over money, too, but it is hard.

what the fuck IS that?

Beth said...

Congratulations to Hannah! That's awesome.

The heat has been blazing here as well. 90's and up. It's terrible so I feel your pain.

Beth said...

I forgot to mention, I worry about money all the time also. I think part of being an insomniac directly hinges upon that fact.

Sandi said...

Does Gary have her enrolled in the rest of the tournaments this summer yet?
Congrads to her.

That's a super accomplishment. Keep it up!
