Goodbye Dungeness Crab, Hello Halibut!

I recently used a web-based grader to test the effectiveness of both this blog and my personal website. One thing that stood out in the final report was that “they” told me I only write an average of two blog posts per week. The mystery grader let me know I’d be more effective if I posted something on my blog every day or at the very least, every other day.

Maybe it’s just me, but I think that would bore everyone to tears. “George is fishing. Couldn’t get in touch with George. Talked to him finally. Fishing was good/bad. Went to Jazzercise. Kids are sick. Mopped the floor for the third time this week. Paying bills. Moved happy hour up from 5:00 to 4:30 p.m.”

But in some REALLY interesting news…after nine years of faithful service, our bathroom scale finally died. Not to worry—I raced over to Bed Bath & Beyond this afternoon to find another one. And now, not only do I have a brand new scale that shows weight, water, and body fat totals, I also have three new sets of sheets for my bed, a package of turbie twists for my hair, a mirror for our closet door, and a present for my sister.

The sale was awesome!

Another “awesome” bit of news is that George and the crew have bleached all the buoys, brought in all the gear, and are wrapping up their part in Dungeness crab season 2010. (Moving quickly on to halibut and blackcod season 2010, which opens March 6.)

George came home last night for a few hours to store some bags of buoys and line in his web locker. I snapped a picture of him before he left, which I’m posting here.

Tune into this blog tomorrow to read all about teaching Jazzercise and going to Costco! :-)

Buoys and Line Headed to the Web Locker


  1. I know – I have been advised to do the same. What happened after that? I started blogging even less! I’m on social media overload. Personal and House Concert series Facebook, personal blog and twitter, work blog, twitter and Facebook – there is only so much I have to say! I will tell you though, that I always enjoy your blog.

    • That’s really funny and so true. Social media overload is a problem. There’s a fine line between being interesting and informative or just plain annoying. I don’t know why I accepted the challenge of blogging everyday for a week. I’m going to have to get very creative! And thank you saying you enjoy my blog. I feel the same about your Twitter tweets!
