Again With The Triple Entendre: Metamorphosis

This triple entendre gimmick is probably only fun for me and a few other english majorettes out there but that fact not withstanding, I’m going to try and pull it off once again. I’ve done previous triple entendre posts on RUN OFF, HATCH and SUNRISE, each offering at least one fly fishing related definition. Today’s [...]

Rising Stars Fell on Alabama Last Night

I wasn’t the only Austin belle ringing and rocking in Alabama last night. The red-hot Austin band, The Trishas, stopped in Mobile on their southeast tour and I couldn’t believe my luck to actually be in my Hometown#2 at the right time. This young group of four uber-talented chicks is all the talk of the [...]

Karma Is a Snap

Considering I rarely drink milk and am one of the few women in my age group not constantly gnawing on calcium chews like a teenage boy with a wad of tobacco, I am pretty impressed with my natural bone strength which was mightily tested this weekend vis a vis an airborne push pole that became [...]

Let Me Get Straight To The Punta

Words fail to capture how much fun we had on our girls trip to Punta Mita! Gorgeous weather, beautiful sandy beaches, hours on end drinking Mexican cervezas and colorful tropical drinks, delicious meals that started at sunset and lasted long into the night. And the laughing. My ribs are bruised we laughed so hard. This trip [...]

Santa Fe and The Faraway

Little Chick and I have just returned from a long weekend in Santa Fe celebrating Mother’s Day with my mother’s side of the family. We had four generations represented: my grandmother, my mom, my mom’s two sisters, my two Santa Fe cousins, my Colorado cousin and her two sons. We had several churches outside our [...]

Conspiracy to Cover Up

When I first planned this girls trip to Mexico waaay back in January, I had grand plans to bikini bootcamp my way through the spring months and melt away in time for a tropical reveal. Well…with a net loss of negative four pounds and the trip just eight days away, all efforts have turned toward [...]

Piscatorial Pictorial

My husband and my dad returned a week ago from their bonefish trip in the Bahamas but I am just now getting a chance to share the pics. For those of you out there who have been waiting a lot longer to hear back from me or get whatever it is you need from me, [...]

Green House Effect

  I wish I were wearing my lucky green Cloudveil fishing shirt and chasing bonefish in the Bahamas, but sadly this picture is from a few years back. Today finds me sitting in my house green with envy as my husband and my dad are in the Bahamas without me. Alas, I am but a [...]

Ain’t It Just Like A Friend of Mine

In my mind I’m still in Carolina. I can’t stop thinking about what a great time I had in Winston-Salem last week, and I still can’t believe how the whole event came about. Ready for this? Stick with me because it’s a great small world story — with random funny video at the end as [...]
