Labor Day Weekend

Posted in Family, Fishing, Movies on September 3rd, 2019 by James

Labor Day weekend wasn’t too bad. Not 100% perfect, but had a good weekend. Stephanie has been working a lot of overtime over the past few months. The company was nice enough to give her Friday off (paid) so she had a four day weekend. So I went ahead and took Friday off too, giving us both a four day weekend.

Thursday night we went Wendover for the night. I played some poker, and took 1st place. Won a total of 625 dollars. Not too many players, about 17 players. Played a solid game, and luck was on my side.

I don’t remember too much of Friday, but do remember it being a low key day.

Lets See Here……

Posted in Fishing on July 30th, 2019 by James

hmmmmm, gotta think about the past few weeks. Went fishing a few weeks ago with Stephanie, Misty, and Dom. That was fun. Only got a few kokes, lots of cutt. Something like 10 fish in the boat over a few hours. Went up to Strawberry, and had a good time.

Me and Stephanie went out to Wendover on the 23rd. She didn’t have work on the 24th, so I decided to take the day off. We did alright. I signed up for a poker game, and did okay. Took 9th out of about 50 players. Those few hours that I played, Stephanie sat at the same Blackjack table with 20 bucks and broke. Not bad imo.

Speaking of poker, played this past Saturday. Did alright, till I lost my straight to quad 10’s. Lost a lot of money there. He totally slow played it. Took 9th out of about 12-13 players. Not the best, bet that hand kinda shut me down.

This past Friday, we lost power again from about 6:30pm till almost midnight. That was a bit frustrating, and reminds me that I need to call Rocky Mountain.

Did some yard work last night. Trimmed the hell out of the horrible rose bushes. No fun plans this upcoming weekend. Hope to do some fishing, maybe some cards. But far from anything too exciting. Stephanie is working Saturday 🙁 got a birthday party for Nina Saturday evening too.

Fishing, Cards, Truck

Posted in Fishing, Work on July 1st, 2019 by James

Been meaning to drop another update in here. Saturday before Fathers Day, we took the boat on up to Strawberry, and picked up Chris on the way. Had a great day of fishing up there. Caught about 4 decent size kokes, along with a handful of trout. I’m guessing we caught about 10 fish within a few hours of fishing. Good times, but wow it was busy up there.

Weekend before last, we took Gabe on up to Willard Bay. Weather was great. Windy to keep the bugs away. Caught a Walleye, and two Wipers. We all had a great time.

This past Sunday since I was on-call we mostly stayed home. I managed to get the oil changed in the rear/front diff, and the transfer case. Been meaning to do that for the past….year or so. But it’s finally done, and don’t have to deal with it for a few years.

One of the co-workers last day was last week. So it’s back down to me and one other guy. Not too thrilled to spend most of the summer being on call every other week. Already cutting into my plans. Blah!

Played poker the past two weekends. UGGGGGGG! Just not good cards, or playing my A game. Blah

Slacking Once Again

Posted in Family, Fishing on May 21st, 2019 by James

Wow, i’m slacking again with this. Not really much to say. Just been doing yard work, waiting for my mouth to heal up, trying to go fishing, and that’s about it.

Did have Ben, Shan, mom, and dad over for a bbq Sunday. That was alright, nothing too amazing, but good times. Jayden came over in the afternoon/evening for a few hours.

Me and Stephanie went fishing up at Willard Bay the afternoon of Mothers Day. Caught our first fish of the season, decent size catfish, and caught a tiny little Walleye. Both of em really tasty, and made for a nice dinner.

Got a four day weekend coming up due to Memorial Day. Nothing really much planned. Just work on the truck, maybe the boat, and going to the soccer game. Work for 2 1/2 days, then start our vacation. Excited for the vacation, but not excited for the cost.

Have been going back to the gym. Been going 2 days a week, and trying to make it three times a week. Awesome thing is. Both me and Stephanie have lost 20 lbs since the beginning of the year.

Slacking off on this. Meant to do a update, but just too busy with life. Well, that’s the excuse i’m going with anyway.

The basement…..Got that basically finished. Few little things we need to finish up with, but for the most part it’s done. Looks awesome, and i’m excited to have my basement back. Really enjoyed the fact of everyone that stepped up, and helped with the basement. Couldn’t have gotten it done without help from Matt, Jim, Stephanie, and Ben.

Got the boat basically ready for the season. Past few weeks I repacked the wheel bearings, changed out the fuel/water filter, hooked the battery up backwards. grrrrr, that fried a cable, and had to fix that. That was super frustrating. 15 seconds of the cables backwards, smoke, 10 hours to find the cable, make sure nothing else was fried, splice in a new cable. It’s fixed now, but time consuming, a weekend that I could have been fishing. Me and Stephanie did make it up to Willard Bay last Saturday, didn’t catch anything, but was nice to get out. Did loose a buddy bearing at some point, so I need to look at the wheel bearings again. grrrrr…. I wanna replace the other two fuel filters, and the water impellers. I’ve never done a water impeller before, so that should be interesting, fun, frustrating, and rewarding.

Awesome 5 Day Weekend….

Awesome 5 Day Weekend....

I had Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, and Saturday off from work. Had a great week.

Monday after work started off me rushing home, getting ready for the show. Me, Glad, and Megan cruised on down to Club Sound to catch Lower Class Brats, and Vice Squad. Had a blast at the show. Lots of booze, old faces, and drunken good times. Glad was so trashed she ended up falling out of the car when we got home. Me and Megan stayed up till about 3 drinking and bullshitting.

Tuesday, I ran Glad on up to her part time job, and picked her up. Ben called and wanted me to head on down to the recording studio. That was good drunken times also. We then went on over to Burts for more beer and music. The local band sucked, the touring band wasn’t too bad. There was maybe 10-15 people at the bar. Really empty, but had good times with my brother.

Wednesday from what I remember was a mellow day, along with Thursday also from what I remember. Thursday we did end up watching Frozen River. Glad hated it, and thought it was stupid. I thought it was okay, and could have been better. I think I would have enjoyed it more if I paid more attention to the movie.

East Canyon Fishing Yesterday

Posted in Fishing on April 24th, 2009 by James

Nothing too exciting over the past week. Jim came over Wednesday night for some cribbage, and beer. Thursday me and Glad went on up to East Canyon to go fishing. That was a pretty good time. Fished for about 4 1/2 hours. Caught 8 fish between the two of us. The first 5 fish we had within the first 20 minutes. The last 3 fish, in the last 20 minutes of fishing. Everything else sucked fishing wise. Still had a great time fishing. Came home with 2 fish, abunch of pictures, and a sunburn. Got sunburned pretty bad, worse than what I was expecting. I plan on putting the pictures up when I get a chance.

The Week

Posted in Family, Fishing on July 25th, 2008 by James

Oh boy, what a week it has been. From drama, James being a pill, Wendover, and some fishing.

I honestly don’t remember what we did Tuesday. I do remember going to the libary with the kids, and that’s about it.

Wednesday morning I went fishing with Ben up at East Canyon. His little vegan self didn’t fish at all, but had a good time at driving the boat. Got up out of bed around 4:30am. Bright and early for sure. In the water at around 6:30. Within about 10 minutes of fishing, had my first fish on. Fished for 3 1/2 hours. Boated 6 trout, and a smallmouth bass. Abunch of other bites that I missed. Had an awesome time fishing.

WoW, I’ve Gotten Lazy…

Posted in Family, Fishing, Movies on July 19th, 2008 by James

So yeah over the past two weeks, had court, went to Wendover, brought a new camera, took James fishing, and learned that my kids don’t know how to respect me.

Court was alright. I was hoping that it went better. Long story short. I had to post bail for 163 dollars, and have bench trial Sept 25th. But I got my license back.

The Camping/Fishing Trip….

Posted in Fishing on July 4th, 2008 by James

Monday after work, I ran on up to Jim’s to grab the boat. Got some dinner with Jim also. Glad was in the ER as she wasn’t feeling too good. I was thinking that the camping/fishing trip wasn’t gonna happen.

Tuesday morning I felt like a chicken with it’s head cut off. Glad was up for camping/fishing. So we decided to get some stuff done, and get all ready to go.
