Home...

For the past two weeks, I've been working with my husband on a special project for his company. We were able to finish early and took a couple of days of vacation, taking advantage of our warm location.

It was nice to work with him and also nice to have some time together afterwards...and no matter how comfortable another bed is, there is nothing like your own. Which leads me to the thought of 'home' and how - no matter how nice the trip away - it's so good to be in your own house with your own things: home.

I didn't have good internet access during this trip - in fact, it was nearly non-existent. And it's taken me all morning and part of the afternoon just to get through all my email messages. I think I've followed everyone who are new followers of mine on Twitter, but I've not yet gotten through all my Facebook notices.

Without internet, I didn't follow the news and must admit that I didn't miss it. In fact, I realized I could live happily (for a least a while) in blissful ignorance of what was going on in my city, county, state and nation. But only for a while.

While I slowly immerse myself in the goings-on and get caught up on everything from Mike Bell being a mayoral candidate to the continuing deficits of the City of Toledo, here are some pictures of the fish we caught during our couple of days of vacation.

I'll be back on the air with Eye On Toledo Monday and will try to have a round-up of comments for the blog tomorrow.


We're not quite sure what this is, but Sam found it on the shore...it could be a baby bonefish, but if you know for sure, leave a comment.



Sam also caught the best 'eating' fish - this snapper and jack.









This is the amberjack I caught...it weighed 18 pounds and put up a nice fight. He was fun to catch....

Maggie.

Welcome back!

Life is very much like a soap opera in that you can miss say about 6-weeks of a story only to find out that the "story line" has progressed only a day or two (for the most part).

Mike Bell running, which only broke yesterday, might be the only exception to what I just wrote though.

You'll be back up to speed in far less than a week though, so I hope your time spent away from us was both interesting and enjoyable.

Again, welcome back!!!

:-)

Welcome back, my friend. The blogosphere was not quite complete without you.

Hope you and Sam got a lot accomplished and enjoyed your little respite for fishing. An 18 pounder?? Good grief, woman! My arms would wear right out!
