Gramps Spey ... I'm not sure which was/is more expensive..
Being a real 'Grand Parent' for two teenage boys, or now with Grand Daughter "Zoe Evans." Joan's gone nuts the past two days buying 'toys, crates, etc., and etc.' for Bella.
I flinched a bit when I laid down the $450 for Poochie ... Yesterday Joan popped for $105, and today $256 .... Guess that just proves 'you can buy love.'
Other than her knibbles and "potty trips", I'm not sure the dog has actually put a foot on the floor since she joined us Friday afternoon. Suspect the only 'true difference' in getting a new puppy and a baby is one has two legs, one has four.
Well, a 'first.' I'm typing away and the computer logs off XP. Look down and a small wet nose just pushed the 'reset button' on the computer.
Planning the drive back to Portland from SoCal on Friday, with the questionable weather, I thought about e-mailing you to possibly have the Koran clan rest at the J&F B&B. Now that I've seen your new child, I'm really glad we didn't...
My daughter would have refused to leave the B&B after meeting Bella! :chuckle:
Olga loves animals a bunch, and thinks she wants to be a veterinarian. After she met Bella, you would have had to adopt her, too!
Not a good deal for you...she would have been super help with Bella's training, and more than willing standing in the river with a spey rod in hand, but you would have had to provide all the ongoing trips to basketball practices and games, which would have really cut into your fishing time!
Very Cool!!! J. D. Jones are you paying attention?
Give Joan/me a call at home 541 482 6386 and let Joan or I know your 'ETA' on Friday. A day(s) fishing too???
River is in PREMO condition, just a bit short of fish as we're between runs. Still a lot of summer runs in the upper river, but pretty dark at this point. But still fun to throw a fly over. If it stays cold, (well, >32 at night, low 40's during the day) the snow will stay on the hills and we'll head down river and fish below Grants Pass. Know a few places that already have winter runs 'snuggled in.'
Fred/Joan/Bella/ and Saki, the chubby cat ... whose almost getting used the idea that she's "not alone anymore."
I was talking about LAST Friday! We drove from Long Beach to Redding on Friday 1/2, and Redding to Portland on Saturday 1/3, so we're home now. We were just late enough to avoid the closures on I-5, I think.
After 2 weeks of vacation to visit family, I'm really paying the price with work, Plus it's the middle of basketball season, so no fishing in the foreseeable future for me.
We're planning another possible visit to the southland in the late spring or early summer, and I'm going to figure a way to get in a morning or day of casting practice on the way there or back. Maybe then???
