It is a hot one, all day today I have been in air-conditioning doing winery wedding coordinating and event planning. Did get a little noon nap, good for an old guy. The humidity we don't need, this heat is really good grape growing weather. We suffer when we are in the vineyard at this temperature, the grapes are saying "Bring on the Heat!"
Tuesday morning Mary and I went our fishing, we got some little sunfish. We were able to eat them all in one meal, tasted really good. Tasted like shrimp and were about the same size. The only surprise of the morning, Mary was pulling in a sunfish and it pulled the line out of her reel, dove under the boat. When she worked it back and I was ready with the landing net, deep in the water I saw another big fish pulling on her sunny. It released and just a bit-up little sunfish came into the boat. Northern pike also get hungry.
