Went fishing at Lake Hesperia today the weather was unexpaected to be sure as you can see by these pics. we toughed it out though and me and my buddy came home with three very nice trout each Mr. Green the following post shows pics of my biggest fish. I had a good time but fishing in the snow is not something I want to repeat.

Okay as stated above these pics show my biggest catch for the day, it weighed in at 3lbs. the other two I caught were about 1.5 lbs. each. The only thing I could say when I brought this one up though was, "NICE!!!"

Whelp went fishing again yesterday at Lake Hesperia. Didn't catch anything major but I caught my limit and helped a friend with theirs. One of the other anglers came by with a 10.5 lbs trout I thought the 3 pound trout I caught Sunday was big. Sheesh this thing was "FRIGGING HUGE!!" to add to the pain he told me he brought it in on 2 lbs test. Mad

Well, I sent the story off to Tigermark last night so after I get it back from him I'll shoot it over to Cateagle who graciously offered to go over it as well then I'll have to get Chris's approval since most of characters involved or his.

It's a great story, Styx. I'm working on editing Chapter 1. I'll send it as soon as I get it finished, and then each chapter as I finish those, as well.

Very Happy I'm glad you liked it Mark, I was afraid it was a bit too over the top.

*Sighs*
You know the day started out so well, things were going smoothly at work for once hadn't had any belligerent customers. Then at 12pm I and a few others get pulled aside and told we're being laid off due to budget cuts. Well F***K ME! Five years with this company and they toss me out. It shouldn't really surprise me, the new owners have been driving the company into the ground for the last year, making decisions that didn't make any sense except to cause the company to fail so the owner’s an investment group in Huston can have a big write off on there taxes. Ah well maybe it will be for the best, I was not really happy with the way they were doing things.

Bummer!! Sorry to hear that; I've been through way too many layoffs to wish them on anyone, save the upper management perpatrators who get away unscathed.

Best of luck with the job hunt.

Best wishes,
Cateagle

Well a few days ago I got news that the company that laid me off back in January went down for the third time last month. It seems they lost their Microsoft license due to unpaid royalties MS offered a payment plan to let them pay back what they owe and they couldn't even do that. I laughed so hard when I read the notice my sides still hurt. The company was strong when the new owners took over last year; it takes some heavy duty incompetence to drive a strong company into the ground in less then a year.

And the dance did the trick MSI gave me a job offer with starting pay at $11.50 hr. a little less then what I was making at my last job but working for MSI has far better prospects for a career. Very Happy

Not to mention that a little less money/hour is ALWAYS better than *NO* money/hour. Wink

Well I got word yesterday I start on June 28th (strange that they want me to start on Tuesday rather then Monday though, oh well I'm not going to complain).
