Spring is coming.....someday

The ice forms on everything that is exposed. It puts that hopeful Spring frame of mind on hold for a few more days. Although the ice is beautiful, it does make life, and attitudes, difficult.

Spring is Coming!

All the snow is gone.....at least for now. The signs of Spring are starting to appear. These hopeful little daffodil sprouts might be in for a very rude surprise. I hope not. The groundhog has to be right.

Snow Dog!

What is it about dogs and snow? Even the oldest dog becomes a new pup again when they play in the snow. Throw a tennis ball into the mix and they'll run until they drop. AH OH! Someone just dropped a ball at my feet. Guess I'm expected to run too. Out into the cold!

Morning Coffee

A good cup of coffee is one of the simple pleasures in life. It helps warm you up on a cold winter morning and gets you moving into your day. There's something about the smell of fresh ground coffee that, in itself, is energizing. I think I'll go finish mine while I read the Sunday paper and get going with my day.

Winter Fishing Dreams

As the ice and snow blows and swirls around outside, my mind wanders to warmer times and places. Fishing for some is a hobby, a way of life, a passion. For me, Bass fishing is a mere hobby now. It is something that used to be a very important part of my life. With dreams of turning pro, to live on the road, on the lakes, catching bass and becoming known to fellow fishermen, was how I lived. Guess I'll just go through my gear and wait until the ice thaws so I can get out and dream again.
