    Got Baby Momma in a Hammock last night

    Originally the plans were to drive up to the Texas Hang,,,but being still a Spring Break weekend, and the call for rain starting thismorning,,,,
    I went on over to the Sam Houston National forest,,,( 15 miles from the house.)

    I got to fiddle with some of my stuff until Baby Momma, (aka Sharon) got off work and got there.

    It has taken a few years, but great strides have been made.... First, just getting her to go into water was a big major accomplishment,,,,,
    Then getting her to go in the Gulf with me to catch Bull Reds from a kayak,,,,, was a really really really big accomplishment....
    ."Texas Sleigh Ride" Last years Pics of her first ride




    Yesterday/lastnight, I got her to spend the whole night in a hammock,, the weather was perfect, not to cold,,, not to hot,,, bugs were minimal, and I hung Her (my) hammock from 2 STRONG trees. Only cuz she asked,,, "Is it gonna hold me?"



    heck I just might sleep in the house with her tonight....

    Wow. That's a huge fish. You cook that up for dinner?
