Got bread on it's first rising and just posted the readings for next week for the online Bible study that I am conducting (the Book of Job) and thought I would get this posted for the week!
We haven't done much exciting but did try to go fishing again. We needed a couple of things at the little store in Fort Garland and wanted to pick up the mail and the reservoir isn't out of the way. Bruce got all of the fishing gear and our chairs into the truck and off we went.
What a surprise when we got to Mountain Home Reservoir. It had gone down a lot! It is used for irrigation and since we haven't had any rain, apparently those needing water are using it. It is still beautiful!

Bruce drove down as close as he thought safe---as we fished there was a truck stuck that had gotten down into the mucky sand---and off we went. I had taken my rubber boots along, just in case, and sure was glad as we sunk right down into the soft sand that used to be water! In fact, we probably sat where we tossed our lines in last time!
After staying for probably 30 minutes or so of no action, we decided that the fish were probably way out in the reservoir where the cooler water was. As they say "a bad day fishing is better than a good day at work"!
Much to our surprise though, look who is out there? I zoomed in as close as I could and you will have to take my word for it but it is a PELICAN!!! I do wonder where it came from. It was all by itself and seemed to be enjoying the scenery!
No cowboy breakfasts this week, no meetings, nothing much---hmmmmmmm, maybe that is what "retirement" is all about! We have had more elk in the back yard but haven't seen any bears for a number of weeks. Must be they are hanging out somewhere else in the Park!
Will check in again next weekend. Have a great week, ya'll! :)+
