That is where Ritzywife has been the past couple of weeks.  I caught a fish on that new rod and reel I received for my birthday.  So, I have it "broke in".  Have been eating crappie and boy do they ever taste good!!!!
Yesterday I left the house at 7:30 am and returned home at 8:30 pm.   Made for a long day, but I caught 21 crappie.  YEA!!!
I only went for 4 hours today  because the fish just weren't biting......only caught one and that was by accident.  My sister-in-law came over and asked how i "hooked" my minnow, so I grabbed a pole with the intent of showing her, I started reeling  in and realized there was a fish on it.  The only fish I caught for the next 4 hours. 
I did take a few days off  fishing so Ritzy and I could take a much needed mini-vacation to Oklahoma City.  We visited the 45 Infantry Division Museum and just "chilled" out in our hotel.  We got to meet up with an old friend and have a meal and wonderful visit.  I have known her since childhood.  She and Ritzy worked together for a while in Perry, OK after he moved to Oklahoma from Wisconsin.  (She is the one who introduced Ritzy to Ritzywife ).
I can hardly believe it is just a little over a week til our daughter's wedding.  Everything is coming together nicely.  I have been watching the weather and now it looks as if it is going to be a sunny day, a little on the cool side for this time of year but we can handle that........this is important because it is an outside wedding with no back-up plan ;-)
I plan to get up very early in the morning to go fishing.  This is before a cold front/low pressure system moves in.  The fish should be biting.   After the system passes it will be a couple of days before the fish will bite again.  Next week is going to be crazy.......I have wedding preparations to make......and some fishing to do!!!
That being said.....Ritzywife is out...............
