I understand, had a nice holiday with the family, only had a few days off. Had a small pond made on Monday. Have been building fish nest before it gets filled with water. Its only about a fifth of an acre and 8 ft deep at the deep end, but will be fun for the granddaughters. Will put some bluegill and channel cat in it. Talked a few of my friends here into going to Wyoming in August and packbacking in the wilderness area southeast of Yellowstone for a week. Camping at over 11,000ft. Its the over 50 group with the Seirra club. Should be fun.
