Last Thursday I had Laparoscopic Gallbladder removal surgery.   Everything went well and with the help of my wife and family I am just about ready to get back to life.  I will be honest, I have not experienced much pain or discomfort from the surgery at all.  I also have been able to eat without much of a problem.  I have had to take it easy as per doctors orders. It is unfortunate the 3 50-60 degree days in December were the days i Had to stay at low levels of activity.  I did however use the time to make strategies for 2014.  Here is my list of things to do.

1:  Ice Fishing.  The last few years The weather has not been conducive to making lots of Ice.  Last year we went once, and then got 20 inches of snow dumped on 5 inches of ice so i stayed off.  So It looks like we will have a season with ice this year.  If not i got to start making friends with people up north.  

2:  Small Game Hunting.  I really like hunting for squirrels, rabbits, and birds.  I think I will get out this winter to some of the state land with the shotgun or .22.  I really want to take a trip out to small game hunt PA.  I don't know why it just seems like a nice place to hunt.  

3:  Over Night Hiking.  I really want to do a few overnighters in the White Mountains, but there is a lot closer to home.  I will have a 2wt on these outings as well.  

4:  Keeping Some Fish.  I have a new found love of cooking fish whole.  It is so much better.  I plan on keeping some fish this year from pan fish through the ice to porgies.  I will also be exploring ways to preserve them .  

   So there you have it.  I will be back soon.

A Trip to Disney World

  I went to Disney World!  Yup, I went down to Orlando Florida for 4 days along with my brother, his girl friend, my mom, and my grandmother.  Before I go any further I want to clear the air and say "Disney World is not just for young children".  We enjoyed 4 days of trouble free life.  All we had to do was have a good time.  Everything else was taken care of.  I highly recommend taking a trip to Walt Disney World at some point.
