I'm Still Here

Now that we're into the second month of the kitchen disaster and they are rebuilding it, I'm required to remain at the house while the workers spread dust all over the place.

Don't know if you've had anyone put floor tile in, but when they make the "cut to fit" pieces, it makes a LOT of dust and the dust particles are so small they go everywhere.

We're hoping that they will be done on Wednesday and since Thanksgiving is Thursday (we're going out to eat) and Friday is dedicated to put up the outside lights, I just might get out Saturday although it's supposed to be in the low 30's Friday night and only 50 during the day on Saturday. OK for me, but might be a tad cold for Yuki if he decides to go.

Yuki and Jim fished Camanche North Shore last Friday. Didn't get a bite. Then they went to the Trout Pond and Yuki landed one in the pound and a half range on a green Kastmaster, but that was all.

Since I hadn't posted in over a week, I just wanted to let you know I'm still here, just tied up for the time being.

I was over at Windknots & Tangled Lines a minute ago and Howard is thinking about bailing on his blog. We all need to go over there and tell him how much we love his blog (not him because he gets odd ideas) and how he should continue posting even if he needs to take a small vacation (as we all do from time to time). So zip over and give him a Howdy. I'll just thank you in advance.

Stay tuned.

    Hope you guys get finish with the construction soon, I know it has been a pain---I will take a look at Howard's idea, which is a bad one especially for us older bloggers, why because it helps us keep our mind occupied. thanks for letting us know how the construction is going.

  2. Buddy I can relate to your problems. I went through a wall paper removal and sanding. We were find dust months later.

  3. Mark, first off, thanks for everything you've done to keep me on an even keel. I hope you get back to normal at home sooner than later. I'd enjoy a dinner out, but not Thanksgiving. It's my favorite family holiday outside of Halloween. Thanks also for the shout out. It started out as a general question about the future of blogs and spiraled from there. I really thought that it was close to the end for me but all my friends once again showed up and showed me that in some small way that it matters.

  4. Some things are so time consuming, necessary but time consuming. The re-construction you were forced to through will soon be over and you can get to some fishing on those winter lakes in your area. Happy Thanksgiving where ever you bite the turkey....................

  5. What a pain. Hope it all gets finished by Thanksgiving, Mark. I also, hope you and your family have a great Thanksgiving!
