Crazy few weeks

It's amazing how everything seems to hit all at once, then goes away just as quick. Christmas time was less than fun with my wife's mother in ICU and making the 3 hour round trip nearly everyday. My wife stayed up there, but work was so busy so I couldn't just go and stay, so I drove up there 12 out of the 14 days. She passed away on the 28th and the funeral was on New Year's Eve in one of the worst ice storms that area had in many years. We got back home New Year's Day to a broken heater and the house in the upper 40's. Fortunately we knew a guy, who knew a guy, who knew a guy. Within a few hours, there was warmth again. But there was no time to sit back and take it easy. I had a huge photo job coming up and had to get everything in order since it was quite a distance away and would be working there for four days. I finished that this weekend, and now finally back at work so I can relax. :) I haven't even had a chance to think about fishing for weeks, and that's gotta change.

I did get a few hours to play around with the camera while I was in between shows. Here's a few shots from Saturday. It got to 52 yesterday in Alpine, Texas.

Oh, and on a somewhat fishing note.....I FOUND MY CANOE!!!!!!

Well, I didn't find it, someone found it on google maps and let us know. This is from the June flood that took everything we had, and nearly us as well. You can see the red thang on the left side of the photo. It's about a mile from where we camped, and up in a mesquite grove. Crazy that it stayed so close, but most the gear went 60 miles down river into Amistad. There's not a way to retrieve it without running the river, so there it shall be, until the next flood moves it on down.

A quick recap video of that adventure.

Here was the story for those who missed our wild adventure.

In a way, i'm glad 2014 is behind us. I look forward to 2015, and a lot more great adventures.
