Going to try to make it to the meat raffle Friday. Getting up there at 3 so not sure if every thing will be done in time. Hopefully get there for once.    :happy1:
:scratch: Not sure we'll make it this week as the we still have some winnings in the fridge from our scores 2 of the last 3 times there. ;D Our company is goin home Saturday so I doubt they'll want to go. Would be kind of  :cool: if we could ALL get together up there sometime this season yet though. :happy1:

Forgot to mention the neighbor said we had .75" of rain & a bunch of pea sized hail here yday while we were in town. So much hail that the ground was white. Then we had another squall go through last night, wind & rain for 15 minutes maybe. Not sure :scratch: what we got that time but I'd guess close to another .25"

Neighbor said he had another .5" last night. So that makes 1.25" yday along with the inch we got over the weekend sets us at 2.25" in the last week. :happy1: :cool: While the rain was badly needed the wind & hail we could've done without. :pouty:

 :scratch: :doah: That's what 70 mph winds twice in 4 days do, blow down a lot of old trees.  :rolleyes: Sometimes it even knocks down some that look healthy. :pouty: Could've been worse & had 1 hit your cabin while your inside like we did last year. :crazy:  :tut:

got back about 11;30. brother had the mess cleaned up. had a dead tree somehow fall between a steel bin we have and one of our sheds. not sure how, but there's maybe 6-8 feet between the 2 and didnt touch either one. guess a tree fell on the neighborscabin but no damage. my brother contacted them and they came up to clean it up,,,,he even brought over a 12 pac of grainbelt nordeast.......not sur who's gonna drink the stuff....... :puke: but........

weather was pretty decent most the time. got pretty muggy and warm monday. did cut split and haul some firewood.

fishing was pretty good, sunfish, nords for picklin and a few over the 26 inch mark. even one walleye. fished 4 different lakes. later when i got a bit of time i got some pictures of the eagles nest i'll post. seems they havent left the area yet. i did talk to the CO i know, he was going to ask the non-game people if  thye'd put up a platform. sunday afternoon i heard them out on the lake, and monday i seen an adult and another one, think this one was a couple years old fly right over our dock. then later i watched what looked like this years juvenile sitting in the tree the nest was in!!!!!!  :happy1: hope they find a new home on the lake!!!!!!

Read somewhere :scratch: that a lot of eagles will often have a couple alternate nests in their usual nesting area.

what really surprise me the most up there was that the bugs werent bad at all. except for monday when it was really humid the skeeters where non exsistent, and even monday they werent bad.

never seen a horsefly, the deer flies where around but not in attack mode like they can be. those pesty flies where the worse....but not to bad.
