I can't tell you the last time we went fishing together and we told Mom we would bring home dinner!! We casted and casted, not one bite!! We saw many jump so we knew they were out there. We resorted to another kind of meat....crayfish! Todd caught the first one, it had only one claw. We moved down the river a little and tried there. Still no luck but I was determined to get at least a crayfish before we left! My determination paid off!
Kissing the catch :)
This is the "big" catch we had to bring home to mom for dinner...we starved tonight!!
I love that my brother carries a fishing satchel!!!
After fishing we had to go put rafters on my Grandparent's new garage roof. What a task!!!
Got there around 8:30 am and we though we were going to finish by the end of the day. Five of us were working hard! We hit a huge glitch!! The hydraulics on the lift died..tried thinking of other ways to get it done but didn't happen. Each of the rafters weigh at least 230 pounds!! Not to mention trying to stabilize them 30 feet up in the air. We had a Caterpillar lift that my Uncle even had on three wheels at one time! We got a little bit more then half done...who knew technology advances actually set you back!
The "Nebraskan" getting it done in New York!
Moral of today...the early bird doesn't catch the worm. But, I did have a great day with my brother who I miss dearly!!!
