I Think It's Getting Lighter


Yes, there has been fishing since Montana. Not enough, perhaps, but some. So here's a quick diversion from that western story, just long enough for an image from last week's Tour de New, our annual getaway to Virginia for smallmouth and an occasional trout. The shot above was taken from under a Virginia Creeper bike bridge where we stood and watched the rains roll in and listened to the thunder-boomers shake the heavens.

It's important to note that repeating constantly "I think it's getting lighter" doesn't make it so.

Trust me.


Note: My special thanks to Chris K. for this image of T'bone and I, watching the light show and regularly observing that we thought... well, you know.

A picture is worth a thousand words...or one really well timed four letter one :-)

You know Mike, I've found that to be the case in so many. occasions, in particular when hiking up a steep mounting......thinking 'it seems to be flattening out' just don't make that mountain path any easier to walk.

The photo is wonderful...I've found that repeating I think it's getting darker does make it so. Funny, huh?

Sep...I think it was just coming off the trees! It was good fishing with you again my friend. By the way...there is a storage fee for keeping your bike in my garage. It will cost you a day of fishing and a beer.
