Gone Fishin

It's 1:50am, guess where we've been tonight...


Yep, cat-fishin on the Grand River! Ain't they cute? They talked to us from the live-well most of the evening. The biggest one is mine, hee, so is the littlest one! Those were the only ones I caught tonight. It was a nice quiet, for the most part, evening out on the river and we saw a few fireworks too. NPR had a show on with the Neville Brothers and it was pretty awesome to hear Aaron Neville sing Amazing Grace out there on the water, in the dark when it was so quiet.


Hang On! Time out! Gotta go see what's going on outside...wooo weee! Looks like all hell is breaking loose out there! I believe every police officer, fire truck and ambulance in this city is 1 block from our house at a stand off with some criminal! We barely got the boat backed in the driveway when we saw a couple cars speed past the house then heard gun shots and all the sirens started. We can hear the police on their loudspeaker talking to someone they think is in the house...ah, life in the city *sigh*

That peace and quiet was sure nice while it lasted. It's 3:58am now...I need to try to go to sleep...
