So what have you fished for?

I am hoping that I may go fishing sometime this summer, but things keep coming up. It's either fishing or hunting, and I think I am going to choose hunting. I want the freezer full of deer before the year's end.

God bless.

Aw shucks guys! Hunting and fishing is great and all, I love to garden. I am a farmers daughter! So, gardening is where it's at for me. I get severe dirt fever in the spring time and just can not wait to get the ol' rototiller started and smell all the wonderful dirt. Yep! Gardening is what I like to do in the country.
God bless!

Right on MM!

I am in the Bluegrass area of Kentucky. And the land IS my perk. I long to ride the never-ending rolling hills of the area on my bicycle.I can't tell you how great it is to experience the country on a bike! You truly SEE and feel the local life. I hike the woods about-and when I fish ( catch & release) half the time I just drift in the boat to watch day turn into night with ALL it's wonder. Was born in Chicago- Lived in a city of a million + most of my life --- and now that I'm out here- I'll never go "back". HOW can one replace the flicker of a candle in the wafting breeze of a distant approaching thunderstorm while strumming a dulcimer. I feel ALL of the above FAR more being Catholic- Thanks be to God.

Know what you are talking about, Rex! Although I do not bicycle, but do go for walks with our two dogs. They love to explore and try to catch the lizards, chipmunks and squirrels. They are such fun to watch. Haven't gardened in a couple of years. We have moved to a new place and it requires a lot of work to be done before I can even think about gardening. Although, I did plant a few things in the flower beds. Mostly things that the deer will not eat. We look out over the land and mountains and thank God every day for our little piece of Heaven here on Earth. Just love it here. I used to live in big cities, but there was always a longing to be back in the country to hear the sounds and see the wild life. My Dad plays the dulcimer too. He picked it up after I had moved out on my own, so I haven't heard him play yet. Hope to someday. Was born and raised in Ohio but now I call Oregon my home.

Wow! Oregon-- that's a long way from Buckeye Land. I spent 12 years in Cincinnati - and were you guys from S. Ohio- like along the Ohio River-east of Cincy---or more towards the Central East part of Ohio???

Up toward Mt. Vernon area. About a hour or so north east of Columbus. Haven't been back in 11 1/2 years. My parents finally came last summer after bugging them for years. Brothers and sister.........Well, I don't expect them anytime too soon. Hoping my aunt will come out this summer, but will see what happens. I just think that my family don't have the "gypsy blood" as bad as I did.
We bought a place in the mountains (hence the name!!) moved here late last summer. Lived in Oregon for 13 years now. Love it, just love it. If we ever get the urge for the ocean, it isn't that far. I think maybe 4 to 5 hours. I do like to sit on the beach and watch the waves, but the mountains are my home. I like the solitude and when the wind moves through the trees, I feel as if it is God whispering to me.
Guess I have rambled on long enough.
What part of Kentucky are you in? Have or had relations there. Have to ask Dad where grandpa was from again. I forgot.
Have a great day!!
