Tomorrow afternoon I hope to get a few answers. So, please say a little prayer for me.
I have had the following pictures loaded to the blog since last week waiting for the commentary to be written. I hope you will understand why this is going to be short and sweet!
Back in early April, Jim and I made a trip to our local feed store to buy fish for stocking our new pond. The pond was dug last year during the drought and it had taken it that long to fill up enough to support its own ecosystem.

Those plastic bags held 50 catfish each...so you get an idea of their size.
|This was one of the little devils before it took off for deep water. You can see its size in relation to the blades of grass growing in the shallows beneath him.|
We had three boxes of night crawlers left over from our vacation trip to Lake Conroe, so Jim and I decided to take a fishing pole out to the pond on Thursday evening to see if we could catch anything.
|I don't know if you can see it very well in this picture or not, but there is a cork floating out in front of Allie.|
We caught one each, though we didn't get a picture of mine before letting it go. So, when Jim brought his in I made sure to snap a picture of it with his phone.
His fish was over 12" long! They still have a little bit more to grow to be table sized, but they are certainly big enough for the grandchildren to have some fun out on the pond. We can hardly wait!
