Great Day!

Tonight, after a great day near Lake Norman preaching at Northcross Church and having a great lunch with the elders of the Church at Chip and Tina Sneed's. We tried to get gas - it took forever to get 5 gallons because the pumps were so slow. All the pumps were being used and there was a line 2 and 3 cars deep. No more room at the station!
We finally returned home and Lynn continued her nap from the car, Rebekah wasn't feeling well and Karen retreated to her room. I checked to see if the Alabama football team was ranked higher - #2 in the land after visiting Athens, GA! So, with a smile on my face, I went fishing as the sun was setting. Cooler on the lake and we haven't had the air-conditioning on for a couple week to same money. Got a few nibbles and then - BAM!
I think this is the largest bass I have taken from Lake Tillery. (Don't worry, I released it after the picture. If I had caught 4 or 5 I would have eaten them!) I am not a good fisherman so to pull in a bigger one was a real thrill! After I got it in the boat it broke my line! I am guessing about 4 to 6 lbs! Well look how big it is!
Great day - I hope you had a great day too!
If you are one of my kids - post what is going on with you in SC or Wingate  or Lookout Mt!

Just remember that this is a start. If that guy was hungry, guess what his mom or dad looks like. Hang in there buddy and be sure to buy you some new fishing line. The next one might be a wall hanger. Looking forward to seeing and being with you guys in a couple of weeks. Until then...
