A Birthday Thanks

Thanks everybody for the birthday wishes. It was a nice day and I got everything I asked for, for my birthday and one thing I didn't ask for.

All I asked for was a birthday card and a piece of birthday cake. I originally was going for a nice 7'6" 3wt, but decided that we really didn't need to spend the money.

What I got was a card and a piece of really good Carrot Cake. Then my wife told me she ordered me a Barnes & Noble Nook. It was scheduled to be delivered on Thursday in time for my birthday, but we found out they hadn't shipped it. She called, she checked, got everything straightened out, and they would have shipped it on Thursday and I would have gotten it,what next Wednesday.

I told her to just cancel it. I was going to Sacramento that morning (Thursday) and I'd just go by the B&N in Citrus Heights and pick one up and I did just that.

You have to understand we read A LOT. There isn't a time that I don't have at least two and more likely three books going at one time.

Don't misunderstand, we love the people that own the used book store where we get our books, but this allows me to pick the books I want to read and they are more than likely ones that my wife won't.

Besides that, it was time I moved into the electronic tablet age. I don't have an Iphone, Android, or one of those other "smart" phones because, frankly they don't work up here anyway so what's the point. 

I should be able to get one day fishing in maybe Monday or Tuesday (I'll let you know) and then we are off on vacation. We'll be gone until late next Monday (the 19th) so I'll be updating Tuesday and let you know how the fishing was.

Have a nice rest of your weekend.



  1. A Nook. Way to go all modern on us. Let us know what you think of it. I think I might like it.

    Looking forward to seeing some great looking fishing spots out that way while you and the wife are on vacation. I have the 7 1/2 ft. 3 wt. and like the lightness and sensitive touch, you can't go wrong in getting this combo.
