Pray'n... update




Dad is 91 today... and is now on the river with C fish'n for salmon.  (I didn't get to go this time due to a repairman coming to the house, damn it.)  C and I loaded up Ol Ugly and away they went. Thank goodness C got back from DC in time to take Dad. 

Happy Birthday, Catch a big one Dad!


UPDATE:

Dad and his fav Twinkie snack

They got back in one piece, but no fish.  Dad enjoys C so much that he seemed okay with that.  After dad had headed inside for his chair, C and I put the cover back on ol Ugly and had a little pow wow about Dad's fishing.  Result, I've gotten Dad a guided fishing boat trip for next week, and hopefully that will end his dry spell. 
Thank you all for the great birthday wishes for Dad, I will be sure to pass them on to him!

  2. You know that if they limit out, you'll be cursed as a Jonah forever.

    What about C? If D isn't working out, you can always go backwards in the alphabet. It would be a great birthday present to a 91 year old man (happy birthday Brighid's Dad!)

  3. GRANNYMAR: I will pass on your birthday wishes to Dad, thanks.

    LL: That thought had crossed my mind, but at this point I just want him to catch one.
    C is a happily married southern gentleman, with a power wife.
    Thanks for the BD wishes to Dad.

  5. Any news from the river? Has Old Ugly sprung a leak? Has Dad landed two dozen salmon for his birthday? What?
