Gone fishin

Good afternoon ,Everyone,A nice sunny, if windy Sunday,Ive been reading this morning ,a book by Charlotte Bingham~The magic hour .  I was up to see the fisher men off,at six o clock, have been getting regular updates, up untill about eleven thirty it had all been quiet,then Maurice caught a twelve pound carp,and then Sammy Jim,(Grannys pet name for Samuel James)caught a carp weighing in at fourteen pounds,I hope youve taken pictures says I... we have ,was the reply,I then asked had he landed it himself ?Obiously Sam was within ear shot as Maurice said well we are doing it between us I reel in and Sam handles the landing net,isnt it great ?abit of male bonding going on there.Out of all the boys Sam is the one most interested,having said that Micky down in Dorset is keen (another grandson) ,but obviously lives too far away.Maurice and his Father used to fish together ,when his Dad was alive.Sadly his Dad has been dead now a number of years,but Ive never yet been fishing with Maurice,and Ive been a few times,I dont fish ,I knit or read or explore,His Father would always come into the conversation,he seems close to his Dad when hes fishing ,memorys never die....Mick my late husband used to fish,though neither my boys ,Mark and Derek are interested,its nice some of the the grandsons are.Well when they come home,all that fresh air will have sharpened up the appetites,so I plan to do a chicken casserole,with everything in it except the dish cloth!!and I know Ive said it before............... (dont these Sundays roll round)

Have a Happy Blessed Sunday Everyone       Jan xx

Chicken casserole sounds nice, save some for me.  A fourteen pounder, that is a good size. With all that fishing your men ought to get together with Sandra's Jim! xxxx

My Dad used to fish, and we would all go on picnics in the summer when he did; what happy memories!!!

I never understood the fishing thing, but my Brother loves it.  He goes out for whole weekends fishing sometimes!  I'm glad they had a successful day :o)
Mmmm, chicken casserole!

Jim loves his fishing as he finds he can relax and think things through while he`s there.  I must tell him about Maurice`s carp only other fishermen understand these things so I`m told...lol!  I`ve just started reading the "Magic Hour", when we`ve both finished we must compare notes! :-)

Neither my dad or my brother liked fishing much...Suppose that was probs because they did it for a living...I never really understood the fascination with it myself but good to hear they have been having a great day :o) ...Hope you had a nice lazy day too.....Caff xxx

That's seven bags of sugar, it is a heavy one.  Your chicken casserole sounds a good winter warmer, enjoy. Rache xx
