Grandparents Again…..

Well, we are grandparents again….We have had this dang squirrel running around in our yard for weeks. I have tried everything to get rid of him….Well, come to find out, it’s a her…This morning five or six little squirrels were running all around our yard…and yes, they were cute…but I went to Home Depot and bought a trap anyway. Now, if I can catch them, I need to figure out where to dump them. I wonder if the zoo area would be ok? We have a park down the street, but that’s too close. I don’t know, maybe down along the river. But there, they would probably die of thirst…..I don’t know yet, first I have to trap the little suckers……

Here we all are on our last night at Croll’s Cabins for our 2018 fishing trip. Water was extremely low, fishing was extremely good, fishermen were extremely happy.

From left, Zach, Joe, Jeff, Pete, Josh, Logan, Dylan, Lyndon.

Best fisherman this year was probably a tie between Josh and Lyndon with a slight edge to Lyndon the for big salmon he caught…however, the pike Josh caught was probably the biggest, sooooo, the debate goes on.

Logan Trower, son of Zach Trower and grandson of our daughter Phyllis. I’m not sure all of these are his, however, he  caught lots of fish and he caught the first fish of all of us. We are proud of you Logan….Good job.

Hester Boy’s Fishing Trip, 2018 Vallecito Reservoir, Colorado

The top picture was made in 2013 from Croll’s Cabins. The bottom picture is from 2018. The reservoir is down 32 feet this year. Management let water out to do some maintenance expecting a large snow melt  and it never happened this year. So, not a lot of water but same amount of fish and they were hungry. Our fishing trip was very successful.
