Hi there pals...1st. I'd like to say, I hope all Dads,Gpas,
Uncles and Brothers had a Great Day just for the Guys.....
I tried so hard to post on Sunday, before the puter was
I was just reading my entry over and ready to save.... I
bumped a button and Zip it flew into cyberspace! There
wasn't anytime to redo my post. Gpa would have missed his
Ya'll know how hard my Gpa works....
A cattleman's job is 24/7 and cattle have daily care
needs.Somehow my Gpa HIT THE JACKPOT this Father's Day!
So anyhow, Gpa Never gets a Whole day to do nothing!
He even works when he is SICK! Good thing this hardly
FRIDAY to start the Special Weekend:
They made a trip to Bismarck for their supplies.
They stopped and bought stuff to service the haying
equipment. Gma bought Gpa a bunch of new stuff to
add to his fishing box. Since they both have their
own poles and tackle. They went to his favorite
place,Red Lobster and he had shrimp. Gma's plate
came with dessert...She gave the warm triple chocolate
brownie with vanilla ice cream to Gpa. Rained
during the night Sssssoooo Gpa had a couple extra Z's.
They both did their regular work. Gma in the vegetable
garden....Gpa finished up the installation of the new
rain gutters. Gma told Gpa they were quitting early
and going to Horsehead lake to fish for northern pike.
Gma had redone the line and tackle on poles. Packed up
all the stuff they needed. Took some drinks and snacks.
About 5 off they went to fish...It was a little windy.
Gpa let 6 smaller pike go....catch and release. So
they will grown some more. Gma caught the largest fish.
It was 30.5" and weighed 4 lbs. Gpa kept one that was
25" and weighed 2.5 lbs. Very nice fish...Gma lost 2
big ones,when they broke her line,took the steel leader
and lure. She had fought them towards shore, but they
were putting up a big fight! Gpa lost 2 big ones,too!
They both lost tackle to the pike.......Some cousins
stopped at the lake,visited and fished with them.
They had a beef roast with veggies cooking at home.
Home at 7ish.....Gma cleaned fish. Gpa fed the 4 bottle
calves. Did the stock tanks and all the grain chores.
It was almost 10 when we sat down for the roast
beef supper...I had beef too! Very late when we called
it a day. I was the only 1 who didn't need a tubbie...
Gpa and Gma thought the fishing,watching the water birds
was way better than the wedding they were suppose to
attend. Oops! I don't think, I was suppose to say that?
The wind had settled down, but it was only 70 ish ....
Gpa and Gma met the grown kids,son-in-law and grand-kids
at another lake called Isabel. Troy (son) was home from
Minnesota. Melissa(daughter) and Jaycen had their boat
in the water. Grand-kids McKenzie and Jaxcen were tubing.
The boat was bought last summer. They Never had time to go
and ride in it....They rode around the lake for a couple
hours. Then they went to the Big D for supper. It's a
summertime restaurant by the lake. They had supper and soft
serve ice cream sundaes. Caught up with what everyone has
been doing....Came home,fed those pesty calves. Played
with me after the chores. Gpa enjoyed the quiet of the
evening with Gma,Precious and me,of course!
They decided on Sunday to go visit another lake that
has Walleye pike in it. No one in the family has had
an opportunity to fish for Walleye. Everyone sure likes
to EAT them. They are meeting the grandson and Mom
to visit Alcaline Lake. Melissa is making the picnic
for supper. Cuz, Gpa and Gma have over 40 miles to get
there. The lakes by our house are less than 10 miles
Gpa thought having both His children,grandchildren,wife
with him:Plus a walk across the prairie with me,eating
out twice,the boat ride,fishing,new stuff to fish with,
A NAP and I washed his face with kisses before we
went to bed..... was ALL HE COULD EVER WANT.......
He had the BEST FATHER'S
