Today has been a bit of a lazy day, i stayed in my pj’s and baked cookies. I made choc chip and butterscotch & white choc cookies. Gabe is coming to spend a week with us and he loves home made cookies. I love baking inside of Ms. Southwind, it’s just like baking in a oven in a stick house.
As you can see in this photo the cookies turned out great and are all done and in a sealed container waiting to be eaten. I actually made a double batch but only cooked half and stored the others in the freezer to be baked in a few weeks when Tyson and his family come to visit.
After my baking was done, i took my shower and spent the rest of day visiting. We are having a wonderful time on the ranch and it’s been great to visit with old & new friends.
Later in the evening i was going to go up to the club house and play card bingo but i got a phone call to stay at the camper as a lunker was caught.
As you can see in the pictures a nice fish looks like a baby compared to this one, this is one big lunker of a fish.
Of course this fish was not cleaned and eaten, instead it was wrapped and put in the freezer to be taken at a later date to be mounted. A bathroom scale was used to weigh and from it the fish weighed 7 lbs 11 ozs and 25 inches long!
As you can see here is the lunker with the proud fisherman who caught him.
You can see in this picture that the fish went almost from end to end of our picnic table. Needless to say i didn’t make it to card bingo but it still ended up being a great evening
Until next time… have a good one ……
