Re: Zeno: Swinging the World by the Tail

Very old apple tree, that although I trimmed it last year, just was not doing well (and had some stump rot) and it blocks light to the house. So I finally decided to cut it down. In Oregon you need all the light you can get.

Great day of fishing with nice weather and no wind, but no fish. No one else on the rivers were doing very well either. Only saw fish in one pool which turned their noses to my fly. Salmon are the toughest fish to get to bite anything. Hardest fishing in the world IMO. But worth it when you finally do hook into one and land it.

Re: Zeno: Swinging the World by the Tail

Went fishing down at the mouth of the Elk River. Only three of us, two fly fishing guys and one spinner guy. The spinner guy caught the only fish, about an 8 lb Chinook on the incoming tide. That is chance and how fishing goes. Fishing is very slow and this year looks like a down year for the rivers located close by. Good weather but slow to bad fishing.

A small yearling deer was killed right by my driveway last night. My neighbor, who has a small backhoe, took the carcass up behind his place - he has his own private dump up there - and got rid of it. I forget to cut the tail off - it is good fly tying material. Good to have a neighbor with equipment like this - I've already made use of it.

Re: Zeno: Swinging the World by the Tail

Rain and wind returning to the coast. Had to go up and patch leaks in my sister's roof and then check in the attic for possible damage etc. What a pain it is to crawl about near the edges etc. She will probably need a new roof this summer. Another job I don't want.

Need to stock up on whiskey and other goodies to get me through the holidays; families have a way doing that to you. Food and cookies and other goodies are nice to look forward to though.

Re: Zeno: Swinging the World by the Tail

start looking soon. the contractors are booked solid around the coast. wait too long and they wont get it done this summer. then you will have to have the roof doctor do it. they do a good job but expensive.

Re: Zeno: Swinging the World by the Tail

So I finished refinishing (removed old dark stain and put on a clear coat) all my wood kitchen cabinets and it really bighted up and added some luster to the kitchen. On to next major task which is to construct some built-in book shelves and TV/Stereo shelving along one wall. Will do this with Birch plywood, made in Russian. May add accents of hard wood on front.

A few boats on the rivers for the winter steelhead. Rivers are low for this time of year - not as much rain especially compared to last year. Will check on the take and decide if fishing is worth it. Crabbing season is very late this year in my area but the pots are stacked on the dock and it looks like they will be getting out soon.

Went on an afternoon hike down to a very secluded beach - hard steep climb down and up but it was worth it. Beautiful day, only partly cloudy, with puffy clouds that spit little misty showers and the rest of the sky blue and bright, and little wind. Absolutely stunning and picturesque - greens, blues, cascading waves, rocky cliffs and shore and the hilly inland as backdrop. I can't post pics - didn't take any - but it would make all you too jealous anyway.

Re: Zeno: Swinging the World by the Tail

You know more about my area than I do Ray. I don't even want to how you do it as it will just scare me I think.

Just had my boat out on Garrison for a tune up run - getting all my boat gear and stuff ready and organized. Amazing how much stuff you need and/or are required to have even for a small boat. License is now good for two years. My boat is in great shape but the trailer will fall to pieces soon. Fixing stuff up never ends and more toys you have the more you need to take care of equipment.

Hello, sir. How come no children? Any regrets? Could you please kindly share some experience instead of talking about your stuff.
