At the lake....

After days of cold/rain/drizzle and clouds, the sun popped out and we motored up to the lake. Cold front roared through overnight and so we had headwinds of 25+ on the way up. Stopped for a propane fill ($1.99/gal) and gas ($2.77/gal). Dumped the sewer and filled with water, bought a fishing license and still got here shortly after 11:00.
58 degrees and breezy here on the bluff overlooking the lake but the view is great. Plugged in the Directv and had an instant picture. No more looking for that hole in the leaf canopy. Verizon has 3 of 4 bars and I can certainly live with that.
Had a fat pork chop for lunch, marinated in pineapple juice and habanero jelly. Delicious.
Now for a short snooze and I will be ready to tackle various chores.
The fishing opener (one of the most important dates in Minnesota) is tomorrow. The goddam fishing rules now run 80 pages and take a lawyer to clarify. Long lists of lakes where you can only keep runt fish and anything else has to be tossed back.
A new feature: A "conservation" license at the bargain price of $11 instead of $17. You can only catch half of the usual limit. However where the limit is 3 fish (like Northern Pike) you can only keep 1 fish. I'm sure the Crappie Cops will be busy trying to enforce that one.
