Short Film Contest Entry

Finally finished the short film my daughter and I have been working on for a while. It is for a competition she entered for Leadership Training for Christ in Dallas next month. The theme of the year was, "The Extra Mile". It took a while to shoot and get all the voice overs just right, but she was a trooper, and kept saying, "Let's do that again, I don't like the way I sounded." We're going to give those other 4th graders a run for their money. We goin for the gold. Lol.

Serenity on the Water....Not!

It was just one for those days where being on the water took priority over everything else. 70 degrees and calm winds. The lake was like glass as I headed out about 10 am. I started fishing around the docks with little luck, but then I grew tired of the monotony of the cast and reel and took off to check out some new ground. I got to a spot on the south end of the lake that was gorgeous and looked like prime fishing. I couldn't help but notice how still and peaceful everything was.

 I sat down on the back chair and just looked around a while......until this fella decided to take away all that was holy and quiet.

 He was a monster. They must have been doing military training since he kept circling and fake landing for nearly an hour and a half. Sometimes I swear I could have reached up and touched the tail he was flying so low. Didn't help I was lined up with the runway he was landing on. At first I was in awe of such a huge plane, but then I grew tired of the rumbling and moved on.

Still an awesome day on the water. My skunk is still attached as I left the lake without a catch, but that's not really why I was out there to begin with.

Maiden Voyage

Wow I stink at this blog stuff. I need to work on that. So off I go. Here's a video of our maiden voyage in the new (to us) bass boat. We took it out on Nasworthy on a beautiful yet windless day. Rare for these parts. Wide open it gets up to 47mph with 4 people aboard. Fast enough for me. I didn't do hardly any fishing this day since the boat and I were trying to get to know each other.
