Farm Ponds

My dad has been trying to get a pond he built to silt in and hold water for several years. Earlier this summer I was riding the horse and noticed that it was doing better than I'd ever seen it. Now, I'm totally astounded to see the size it's grown to. It went from a mere puddle, to a small pond, to a good sized pond that can actually be putted around on in a john boat, and fished out of! Apparently, my youngest nephew does not trust his 11 year old big brother steering the john boat around the pond. Apparently, turns are a little abrupt with him at the helm. Needless to say, Dad's new pet project gets stocked with fish every time the family gets together and fishes at the creek on our land.


My sisters, my brother in law, and my niece Molly jumped in the pickup for a little field trip to admire Dad's newest attraction.


We all properly ooh'd and ahh'd, and then we got to wandering around....



This pickup was the very first pickup my dad ever bought. Doesn't Molly make a great pinup model? With more clothes on, of course!

Molly, being young and carefree, and having a sister who walks around with a camera permanently attached to her neck is always willing to let you snap a photo!



Hey! Here's a drastic subject change for you:

The summer of 2007 it seemed to rain every weekend. One weekend we were at the lake with our friends Wayne & Jennifer from Arlington. We were their official vacation spot when we lived near San Antonio. We could see a storm coming, but we played until the last possible moment, and headed to the shore with 3-4 ft swells crashing over our little fish & ski hull...

Wayne & I held the boat over to the side at the dock while Studmuffin ran to get the pickup and trailer. Jennifer had rounded up the 5 kids and was waiting in her van with them. By now the rain was there, and we were getting poured on...Suddenly, a little john boat with a 5 horse motor comes putting up to us. Two young guys, maybe 18 or 20 years old crawled out of it on shaking legs...

"Were you guys out there in THAT in this storm?"

"Yeah," they agreed with nervous laughs.

"Where are your life jackets?"

Avoiding eye contact: "We didn't have any. We were tied onto the wall fishing, and suddenly all of the boats just took off."

I couldn't believe it. All of the bigger boats took one look at the storm coming, and left these poor kids behind. And, several boats buzzed right past them, never checking if they were going to be okay in their little boat in those big waves....

Of course, Studmuffin gets frustrated with having to stop at every accident we drive by so I can make sure nobody's injured. I just don't understand how people can drive by something like that. Of course the tale of driving backwards down I35 south of Fort Worth, and stopping to help a lady in anaphylactic shock will have to come another day...

This post is too long already...
