Last catch

Trout season ended in Michigan at sunset.
The days catch. The bigger one was caught as it was getting dark, and may be the last trout caught in the 2007 trout season for the entire state of Michigan.

Trout for breakfast ... or maybe brunch.

Getting dark ...

Bad Dream

This is why you need a pole under the cover to keep water from pooling. If the cover breaks, the Otts really will have a wet dream. You can't tell from the picture, but the water is a foot and a half deep. There is more water in the cover than there is in the bay.

Please reference previous blog posts on this subject here, here and here, not to mention previous Titanic history. I believe the Otts may have a collective learning disability problem.

Fish

Sort of

Back at it.

Made it to the lake at last light.

Fire, water, electricity, hot water, all good. Can't find the spigot to refill the lake though.

Sunset on the back route into camp

By way of Arnold. Wild turkeys and deer in field after they crossed the road in front of us.

A short break along the way

There is a funny smell here.

Grafton for gas and coffee

Bad Golfers in China

Two members in good standing of the LPBGA (Lincoln Park Bad Golfer Association) were recently photographed at the Beijing Chaoyang Golf Club.

No word on scores yet. However, there was a report that all American golfers have been banned from playing in China shortly after these photos were taken. .

Nice Hat.

Nothing like a day on a well maintained Commie fairway, breathing that good Marxist smog.

apres round - beer and lunch

Yes that is a 76. Bob has irrevocably removed himself from the bad golfer community.We'll miss him.

On a side not, we were accused by bartender Crystal of walking out on the bill last time at the Tee Off Bar. Not true. We left a pile of cash on the table with nice tip. Apparently they have some dishonest and unsavory patrons at the Tee Off. I recall there were a couple of guys playing pool across from our table. I'd say they were the prime suspects.

Food was great. I had the Kansas City brisket.
