Got my tulle pre-carve from Pecatonica last week. Was going to try to make a stock from a plank, but the arthritis said I wasn't allowed to try. I will try to make a New England Fowler. Hopefully I won't turn about $500 worth of parts into a $250 gun.

My wife plays the ukulele in a string band. Today instead of going to our regular church she played with the band at the 1st Methodist Church for the congregation there.
I went in to town and did a couple of errands. Normally I run such errands on Monday's but I have a lot to do tomorrow, so I took care of some of the stuff today, such as grocery shopping.
Rain off and on all day today. I dodged the showers as I packed things in my truck and camp trailer. Grandson and I will head for Jekyll Island, GA. first thing Tuesday morning for several days of camping, beach combing, and surf fishing.

I recall Jekyll as being very nice. Though I've been there a few times the last was my honeymoon back in 1971. Enjoy yourself, Rancocas.

Uuuuh...Boartooth, I was only 9 yoa in '71 and was victimized by a...uh, 10 year old cougar; and yes they started out younger back then. I'm actually a lot younger now than I was back then.

Today I worked with my squeeze on our long term remodeling of an enclosed porch into a half bath, office and a mud room. Yep, 3 rooms (big porch). Here's a neat one.

Ah...today. I got a very good nights sleep. But when I woke my neck said, "BUT YOU DID IT WRONG"! Just been spending the day in pain.

"Oh, what is abroad in the marsh and the terminal sea?
Somehow my soul seems suddenly free
From the weighing of fate and the sad discussion of sin,
By the length and the breadth and the sweep of the marshes of Glynn."

one stanza from "The Marshes of Glynn" by Sidney Lanier

I have returned from the Marshes of Glynn, from the Georgia Sea Isles, the Golden Isles, of Jekyll Island in particular. Good trip, although not productive of its main purpose of catching fish. It certainly was most good to get away, out of touch with the world, unknowing of the evils and perils of mankind, if only for a few days. Sun, sand, and salt water.
The fishing was poor. Salt water catfish and stingrays were our most numerous catch, with a few small croakers, and one decent size spotted sea trout that my grandson Steve caught. Steve had also connected with something rather large, but after a short fight in which the fish never surfaced, so we never saw it, his line broke and the creature got away.
However, Steve certainly did have the luck, whether good or bad remains to be seen, of catching some odd, unusual things. A softball size clam clamped down on his fishing line and Steve hauled it in. A rather large horseshoe crab nibbled at Steve's bait and was snagged on his hook. He brought that in. (I'm sure that horseshoe crabs are rarely caught by hook and line.) Thirdly, a juvenile Ridley's sea turtle swallowed Steve's baited hook. That prompted an emergency call to the Sea Turtle Rescue Center that happened to be right there on the other side of the island. A surgeon there removed the hook. Happily, all three sea creatures were released again, although the turtle will have to spend a few days in recovery at "The Turtle Hospital" before it is released, but it will be fine.
In addition to our fishing exploits, we watched the capture and removal of a nuisance alligator. I didn't think alligators ventured into salt water, but we learned that they do, indeed, descend into the Marshes of Glynn and to the edge of the sea from time to time. The wildlife biologist who captured it told me that 'gators can tolerate up to about 30 days in the salt but then they must go back up the tidal creeks and return to fresh water again. The one we watched them capture by snagging it with blunted hook and heavy fishing line, pulling it in close to get a noose over it and then drag it onto the beach, had been reported in the area for about a week and a half. It was approaching people and so a danger especially to small children and pets. It was about 6' long.

Indeed it does sound like a very good time you all had. Me, I loafed all day still nursing a bad neck. Ugh!

What did you do today?


Today, 9/10, I went early to the YMCA and did my usual workout. Back at home I replaced a broken hinge on our screen back door. Then I pulled up all my tomato, beans, and peppers out of my garden. I haven't carried away the debris yet.
After lunch I sat down here.
I think next I will start another landscape painting. I have an idea for a scene with a lot of white birch trees.

Well let me think...

I mowed the lawn (or weed patch) however one looks at it... Loaded a ball block for my next Range trip with the .45... Tinkered a bit in my workshop (nothing worth mentioning). Really nothing more than that I guess, but the day's still young... Smiler
