Time of Transitions -- Old Shed platform demo ++++ ~ 9-22-13

Lot things this week
-Cas Sloan Kettering on Fri went very well giving my my hope for a more comfortable life --- back on steroids made a huge difference in 3 days time...more independent again actually up n downstairs instead of sleep in 22 hrs per day

- today was supposed to be CAS wedding today
Would have been a nice day for an outdoor wedding at the old feild co club
- Pam in town to help for a week
- Rich o 1st week with out his dad - rough


------------------
Windy but a beautiful day
Air 74
Wind nnw gusts to 21
--------------------


Took an hour late Sat evening to remove the last ply on th platform
Heavy 3" of rain overnight - good thing we got it off

started to disassemble the frame by 10am
Only 1 5/8" screws holding the inner support frame together-- terrible --
A quick twist an they fell off with screws still intact
Not the right length at all

Had to go to harbour freight to get a 8lb sledge to remove the remaining ccement footing posts -- a few sacks n out they came

Saved enough time
To Watched the jets 1sthalf at the parents
N 2nd half at the bench with rich & Fagan

Crazy emotional weekend again

SB ~ HOH ~ Noelle Commune 1.5hr break ~ 9-15-13

After a LOOOONG 2 days of Wakes and the Funeral + after party @ the O's for 12hrs..
i was shot - drained
Still had to find the strenght to take my Neice to a BBQ n Communion Study Sun night 5-9

after meeting some very nice people
the parents split from the teens and I slipped out for 2 hrs to the shore which is 5min away.

nice cool calm night.
--------------------------------------
Wind 0-5 SSW
Water 70-72
Air 65
High @ 9pm
-------------------------------------
slipped into to cool weedy and very cloudy / dirty water @ 6:16
forgot to bring a time device so i was guessing on how long I was there by the sunseting @ 7ish ( need to out by 730)

Not much happening in the calm still water...until 20 min? in had a bass hit 2ft away.. small but no skunk..

Had another bump
then a big hit - fish on - felt big and heavy but didnt budge -- the broke off,..,inspected the lure.. bite in two..but not like a blue?
odd..

tried a few more casts but lost track of the time
As The water rose and I backed out and to the truck -- 7pm

had about 1/2 hr more so I decided to book it to another spot that I have never fished from shore..because the residents call the Fuzz if u park there..
so I chanced it since I knew I would be gone by the time the call was answered..sneaky..risking a ticket..
down the road quick and jumped out n to the water..love this spot from boat...so I knew I love a differnt look form shore..
1st cast had a bump.. 10 casted it Bass! 21"

a few more casted and it was getting Dark - slipped back into the weeds , dark n drove away..

------------
Total:
2 Short Bass( 17",21")
1 missed mystery fish
3 bumps
----------------

not bad for a short short break.
no place to undress - so i used the well lit 7 eleven p-lot
with a Matts next to it for a quick slice and the end of the Manning bowl - Peyton( Denver) wins over eLi(Giants) again 41-23

back to P/u with 10 min to spare.

SB ~ ALL CLEAR + Mr O. ~ 9-10-13

had to take a half day to hit the Doc.
5 mons of urol tests - go the all clear today..4:23pm

geared up and went fishing right after...perfect timing for the tide.

to the water an hour early...fished a few spots - only snapper bite offs
----------------
Air 79 - humid 74%
Wind - Stiff 15-20 SSW
water - 73
High @ 3:30
------------------
in the h20 by 5
Sunset @ 7:03...seemed like the perfect tide + sundown
but bites were hard to come by...unlike the last 3 visits were it was non stop action 15+ fish each time..
like a switch turned off...
Wind was going over my head so I was in the still calm - which means a no see-um Bombardment,,,no bug spray but had long sleeve breathable shirt+ Buff + gloves to cover all up- being a little hot is better than the bugs in ears on hands or up the nose..wrapped like a mummy.

Total:---------------------------
only managed 1 bass ( 20")
= 1 robin
= 2 missed hits.
----------------------------------

line broke @ 7:40 so I called it a night while I coudl still see where I was walking..plenty of tide left but it just wasnt happeneing tonight.

nice night - sunset

The Great MR O. is not doing well at all....got a call that he has Days Left...shocking as a week ago, he had more time...now none left.
the weight of sorrow in the air is so heavy right now...
just overwhelming....to lift a finger.

Prayers for my Friends
