Everybody likes to fish !

A few post ago I put up some pics of down by our cabin , one of which had a waterfall from a large mountain went under the road and found its way to the Atalntic Ocean , well in the wee background of this photo you can see that same waterfall and now the Atlantic.
These two cuties are Molly and Emily , they love it in boat althought it may not appear so here .IT is a good thing that J.D. DOESNT LIKE IT IN BOAT , he is 120 lbs and is biggerthan these two plus some!

I do not come from a family of fisherers , but we like to get out sometimes and you cannot get out without these two cuties! our cod fisherery has had a ban on it for a number of years and a "food fishery" has been allowed for a few summers only for a couple weeks at a time .It is a crime really but you can only go along with GOVERMENT !you are allowed to catch 5 fish each or a certain number per boat. Sad really but with overfishing by trawlers and foreign fleets and mismanagement the whole thing is a mess. also with natural hazzards like seal population explosions,polutions,changes in water temp, feeding grounds etc it all boils down to ,,,,,,we have to take care of our planet and our oceans are a big part of that.


as I stated above you cannot get out in boat without these two, they are chasing my parents in the Dory and the have to come back and load the doggies aboard,they (doggies)wold not turn back for shore,they love it in boat, more than me thats for sure!

THIS is the first fish of the seasonCAUGHT BY MY MOM) isnt it a beauty,,,uhhhh, ok , well it taste a lot better than it looked, you filet it fry it up with fried PORK srunchins,season IT SERVED WITH,whipped creamy potatoe, corn on the cob ,all right there on the beach,yummmmmmmmmmmy!
Here are the rest of the catch ,small but ok for us, too few to salt/cure so, filet and freeze,,,yes my Dad caught some as well haha ! ,,,,,I did the cooking/cleaning etc , not out in boat for me maybe next time,,,,,,,uh the boat is aDory! and there are whales out there! many whales , it is safe so/so , but I can wait ,,tee hee,loved it as a teen but we had a bigger boat then :} or maybe,,,,,,,never mind!
This was our eve sunset , ahhhhhh smell the salty air,,hear nature at its best,no outside noises, relax and sit a spell,ahhhhhhhhhhh:}

The sun made this little flicker of light ,thought it was pretty, we started our fire on the beach , sat around and just kicked back with a belly full and sense of awe,,,,,,,,it was fun and recharging,wish you could have been there, it was really warm and little breeze ,the fire kept the critters/bugs away,,,,,,,,who could ask for anything more,THANK YOU GOD!

As long as I have had a blog now my pic has been the same , I thought about changing it , then changed my mind , not a big deal. I thought if I changed it no one would realize it was my comment but I know the difference , just a nagging thing in the back of my beady brain .
Well a couple times in the past my pic would not cooperate and hid, well it has totally disappeared and does not seem to want to come back at all , and now the pic I have to replace it with will not show up on my blog HMMMMMMMMM. PSsssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssss sorry that is steam escaping from my head , I dont want to explode ....... LMAO
The blogger gods/demons are having fun again !

This was an email a good friend sent me today and I thought I would post it to share with everyone . especially all the woman

Why Women Cry

A little boy asked his mother, "Why are you crying?" "Because I'm a woman," she told him."I don't understand," he said. His Mom just hugged him and said, "And you never will."Later the little boy asked his father, "Why does mother seem to cry for no reason?""All women cry for no reason," was all his dad could say.The little boy grew up and became a man, still wondering why women cry..Finally he put in a call to God. When God got on the phone, he asked, "God, why do women cry so easily?"God said"When I made the woman she had to be special.I made her shoulders strong enough to carry the weight of the world,yet gentle enough to give comfort.I gave her an inner strength to endure childbirth and the rejection that many times comes from her children.I gave her a hardness that allows her to keep going when everyone else gives up, and take care of her family through sickness and fatigue without complaining.I gave her the sensitivity to love her children under any and all circumstances, even when her child has hurt her very badly.I gave her strength to carry her husband through his faults and fashioned her from his rib to protect his heart.I gave her wisdom to know that a good husband never hurts his wife, but sometimes tests her strengths and her resolve to stand beside him unfalteringly.And finally, I gave her a tear to shed. This is hers exclusively to use whenever it is needed.""You see my son," said God, "the beauty of a woman is not in the clothes she wears, the figure that she carries, or the way she combs her hair.The beauty of a woman must be seen in her eyes, because that is the doorway to her heart - the place where love resides."

Friday is here again , where does the time go ??I hope everyone is enjoying their weekend . I havent been getting much sleep lately , well actually ever ,,LOL,, but less than my norm so I hope to be like this little guy above tommorow morning or I will be like this little one below !LOL

Not much to say but a few ramblings of my rambling mind ..........

We have been getting some heavy rains in our area the last few days and our temps have dropped to 14c in the evenings , some days as well.,It gets really chilly and I am wondering where our summer is gone , I guess everyone else is getting slammed with the heat so I should be grateful , so I will be , Thank you God.

A Good friend who is an employee of mine as well, is getting out of the hospital on Monday, she had a severe case of cellulitus and has been in there for approximately 3 weeks , she has been in for the same thing a few times prior and been in for up to six weeks and then recovery at home making it about ten weeks in duration. She is dearly missed , I wish her well , with loads of Hugs and good wishes .

Another young "friend" well neighbour of mine has gotten out of the hospital ,she was in for treatment for depression and personality disorders , I wish her well , she has a thing where she takes offense to people asking her "How she is " and doesnt want to talk to anyone , but sent out emails expressing how she is upset no one asks her how she is and no one talks to her " Well I have a therory , I still talk to her and ask her how she is , so she can be mad at me but know I care , whatcha gonna do???? a rock and a hard place comes to mind .LOL

I havent heard from my friend J that has left for the great AFRICA more than once but she spoke with her Mom by payasugo cell phone , saying how things are for her there and things seem ok , I will wait for a while before I will think she has been eaten by the LION KING :}(I have nothing if I havent my humor) If you dont email soon , I am sending someone to look for you .! SIMBA! love you you crazy girl XO.

I have some family home for summer Vacation , including two nephews . It amazes me these two boys are from the same gene pool let alone same household , WOW , One is 13yrs old, 6'2" about 200 lbs, into science ,TV, is very much a loner and loves beating up his little brother :{. The brother is 12 and is maybe 5'ft , under 100 lbs , into sports , friends and girls girls girls , is outgoing and very gentle . I am thinking most families are like this , but it seems these boys are on opposite sides of the spectrum now , I hope they will be close as they grow older ,if not I shall duct tape them together till they are ,if it were only that easy .My brothers and I fought like two cats with their tales tied together over a clothesline ,I use this expression because the only defense I had was when I started growing out my nails,,,,, rrrreeeooowww!!! hey , it worked they stopped picking on me , it wasnt pretty at times but we love each other very much today ,hopefully it is like that for all in those cases , I'll hope :}.

well it is past midnight on A friday night *SIGH (LOOK WHAT I AM DOING !) hope your all out having a wonderful time , somewhere interesting and fun . I still have alot to do before bed , I think I will have a hot shower to wash away the day and put on my new jammies :} and get to it . well ,,,,,,wishing all a good night and a better weekend

stress test :0 )

Hope everyone out there is well and happy , seems like everyone gets busy in the summer and when your too busy you can get stressed (did you know stressed spelled backwards is desserts, there must be a connection LOL ) :0}

Below (directly under my post , when I first posted it , I checked and seen it was level with the spinning cat and ying& yang sign,wouldnt that be a laugh someone thought I was talking about those pics , OMG LMAO too funny !sorry, I've composed myself ,,,ahhhhemm....)is an email from a friend of mine , thought it was interesting , I am so glad they (below)were not spinning today! heeeheee LOL you may have seen it before ,worth another look , tell me what you see????????

Are these items moving? Or are they perfectly still? They tell a lot about your psychological make up and your stress level. Scroll down - there are three pictures

The pictures are used to test the level of stress a person can handle.

The slower the pictures move, the better your ability of handlingstress.

Alleged criminals that were tested see them spinning around madly;

however, senior citizens and kids see them standing still.

None of these images are animated - they are perfectly still...

Hope everyone had a great weekend
been busy around here , hope your all having fun
enjoying the summer offerings .

When I am on my blog late at night I FEEL LIKE WHOOPI GOLDBERG IN THE MOVIE "jUMPING jACK fLASH"

WHOOPI , PLAYS A COMP ? AND IS CONTACTED BY A STRANGER SOME HOW THROUGH HER COMP AT WORK ,this was before blogging etc or before I knew of it ! Seems like there is always something new in the comp world new to 'me' , and it could have been out a decade LOL . THE guy contacting her IS A SECRET AGENT IN TROUBLE AND SO ON . mY POINT IS i FEEL LIKE THAT WHERE SHE IS ALL ALONE AND UPON HER SCREEN , WORDS FROM A STRANGER MEANT FOR HER, SHE VISUALIZES IN HER HEAD WHAT HE LOOKS LIKE , sounds like etc .
It is strange how we can contact one another and carry on friendships and bond without any human contact at all, I mean it is sometimes hard to know how to take a comment , without facial expressions or voice tones to round it out . I always hope my words are taken the way they are meant , with love and kindness , with a little turkey dry humor weaved in for good measure . Our communication skills do not have to be fine tuned to answer hours or days later , which can help when stuck for words. No social lubricant is needed (Drinks etc) you can be yourself without worry , well within reason. I think it is wonderful to talk to all my blogging friends and to make new ones , find out what everyone is doing , how they are or read anything they desire to share . I dont know about anyone else out there but I feel what I read about peoples lives , The good, BAd and Ugly!, This fabulous tool bringing the world closer together, gotta love it ;0]
