Heads or Tails *Summer Memory*

Heads or Tails has its very own home now! If you click on the graphic above, it will take you to the awesome new HoT blog where you can sign up and start participating in this fun and popular meme!

This week's theme is "Share a Summertime Memory".I am sharing two of my favorite memories. The first being (and will always be) fishing. I've loved to fish ever since I was big enough to hold a pole.

The second memory is my Grandpa & Grandma's cottage in Kentucky, where we would go every Summer. I loved that place more than words can describe. Now a days, kids probably would hate the place though, because there were no television and no phone... just the outdoors and evening-family-time. Did you, as a child, have a special place that seemed to have its own smell - it's own atmosphere - it's own unique feeling that enveloped you when you were there? The cottage was that place for me.

Oh, and in case you are wondering - the photo is of the first bass I ever caught out of the pond at the cottage. G, Do ya think I look a little bit happy in the photo? ;-)

Spending time with my grandparents was always a happy time for me, too. And yes, there are some smells from being there that still spark memories for me. :)

Holy mackerel or should I say holy bass!!! Wow, that is one big fish for a little girl!

Little Misty is so cute! Yep, you do look happy. Most of our fishing was at a pond across from our house. There were so many bluegill in that pond that none of them were very big at all.

Great Photo!!! I didn't fish until I was married and went with my hubby (who was a die-hard Bassmaster), but looking at your 'catch' reminds me what good 'eatin' fresh-water bass is ;--)
Hugs and blessings,
