That's a lot of Cat Fish

TGIF! Especially, if you are a camper.  Today is our main camper check-in day. I like to see happy campers.  Judy and I have a couple of things to get done today unrelated to work.  She is going through all of our photos that we haven’t looked at in years.  I am going to do a few maintenance things over at the RV.

I got over to the office at 6:15 and made my morning coffee.  I like to have some me time in the Am as I have my caffeine fix.  I went on out and opened the gate at 6:30 and walked back to the office to catch up on the news. I even made my breakfast – Jimmy Dean sausage, egg and cheese. Life is good.

At 6:45 the first fisherman came through the gate.  He stopped at the window to purchase a “Day Use” pass.  I recognized him from yesterday when he came to launch his boat and go set a“trot line.  He was now going to go “see how many fish he caught”.  He was only gone about an hour or so before he stopped back at the office.  I went out to take a look at his haul. He had a medium size cooler slap full.  He offered me a “mess” but I declined.  Judy walked up and she had to see them also. I kinda think he enjoyed getting to show them off.  Judy asked him what he used for bait. She was surprised when he showed her ½ inch cubes of soap. He told Judy that the “channel cats” love Ivory soap.

Judy spent the morning organizing the photos we had accumulated over the years. It looks to me like she is keeping five for every one she gets rid off.  She has enough time here to devote to this project.  She works at it for a couple of hours and then puts them away.

I dumped the galley and gray water tanks. After that I filled the fresh water tank about a 1/3 and cycled the fresh water pump for a few minutes. The pump worked fine. The rest of the day I did the usual park routine.

It is now about 9:pm and all is quite in the park. We only have about an hour until we close the gate. Judy is reading her kindle and I am finishing today’s post.

Thanks for stopping by.
