Yesterday (Saturday) was beautiful; shirt sleeve weather, river (Rogue) conditions couldn't have been better for fly fishing, thousands of fish in the upper system ... so says to 'Self:' "Self, lets chuck the dogs in the car (my yellow lab and neighbors Husky) and hit the river for a bit of fishing while dogs do a sniff around." 'Self' agrees this is a good plan A. Went to the Denmon Bar/Modoc Ponds runs that can't be more than a 10 minute drive out of DT Medford. Drive up and I'm 'confronted' with a 1,000++ yards of empty beach. :beer2: Not a single other person in sight. Bugger of it all was wife-type calls me on my cell phone (Joan's up in Portland) with a "OOOOOO! OOOOO! OOOOOO! The new washer/dryer "we" want is (last day) on sale at Lowe's, can you drop buy their Medford store and buy them today?" (One does not say no to "The Redhead" ... especially given you had a hand in picking out the equipment.) Well, that screwed up the day,:beathead: but we have the 'new stuff' coming in a few days. Odd part of it was I drove by two other major public access ... and no body at either one either. Go figure?
